All Chemicals aren’t bad, all things natural aren’t good

All Chemicals aren’t bad, all things natural aren’t good

  • It's inaccurate to assume that everything chemical is bad, and everything natural is good.

Eg: Poison ivy is natural, but that's not something you want to put on your skin.

  • Ingredients are not intrinsically bad, it's about how they're used and in what quantity.

Eg: Think of a puddle of water — not a big deal, but a tsunami can be catastrophic.

  • A product labelled as 'natural' tells us nothing about ingredient safety or sustainability but it makes patients and consumers feel better.

  • Public regulation of ‘natural’ products — including a universally agreed-upon definition for the word — would empower us all to make more informed decisions.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
