All of these are, of course, completely ridiculous notions, but they sound so good to our ears. Why is that? Is this just a knee-jerk reaction to an increasingly process-driven planet? Or, is it an attempt to re-center personal morality and values now that most people do not follow a strict religion?
Natural medicines are not medicines at all. They are products overloaded with contaminants, but they deliver such a muted dose of the desired active ingredient that they are not even regulated for product quality. Organically grown food may sometimes taste better, as does farm fresh food, but if industry moved entirely in that direction it could cause many people around the world to go without food. And, barring that, Western love of specialty items generally ignores the fact that many poor people on the planet would do a lot just to have the crumbs from our tables, so to speak. And, drinking lots of water not only does not cleanse you of toxins, but a recent study shows that it could leave vulnerable to minor sicknesses. At best, it does nothing.
I can't get my mind around it, but logic just doesn't seem to enter into it.
What do you think? What drives people to make these giant leaps of non-logic?
