In brief: Definitely NO!!!
Sounds like you have quite a prejudice against organic foods.
Numerous research studies show organic foods contain significantly higher amounts of vitamins, minerals & antioxidants- up to 10 times more antioxidants! they also, of course, have much lower levels of pesticide residues and pesticides have been associated with increased risk of many serious illnesses like cancer...(cont. In comments).

Pesticides also increase risk of Parkinson's disease, infertility & birth defects. Choosing organic foods reduces the amount of pesticides used and thus pesticide residues in the environment, Eating organically is currently the only way to avoid GMO food and there are many animal studies suggesting that there are significant health hazards associated with eating GMO foods.

Also, animal foods including eggs & dairy often contain antibiotics unless organic, and chronic exposure to antibiotics is also not healthful. There is a need for further research on the benefits of organic food but there is good research out there. The biggest downside is the added expense, which may be why yuppies are better able to afford them; by definition yuppies are well-educated (cont.)

In brief: All ages nonpartisan
All age demographics contain people who prefer organic foods for a variety of reasons.
And i've known lots of economic and religious conservatives who prefer organics, plenty of liberals and yuppies who do not.
