Natural or not natural?

(October 22, 2011)

Not long ago I was asked “But what about agave syrup? It’s natural and recommend for people with diabetes.” Really? I sure hope not!

A few other things that are completely natural but still not so healthy for us are tobacco and digitalis …

So what’s wrong with agave syrup? After all, there’s a difference between a plant that sweetens and a plant that causes the heart to cramp, isn’t it? True, agave syrup is no more or less harmful than any other natural sugar (regular sugar/brown or honey), in occasional small doses when you’re healthy and have no problems like diabetes or sugar addiction etc. …

It just bothers me when the common equation among advertisers is that natural = healthy.
