So Its Natural.

Published by brassyblonde900 in the blog brassyblonde900's blog. Views: 369

Just because snake venom is natural, does not mean I want it.
So said I.
A dear friend was about to give me what she considered a well deserved lecture when I told her, I am not a member of the 'all things natural brigade'
and will never be.
I really don't care for all the so called natural this...natural that.
I Put artificial Sweetener in my tea or coffee.
I happily drink out of containers with PBA
I don't care for Organic...From the moment I left England at age 3 till I came back at 29, I ate organic.
I had no choice. It was the only type of food available.
Mother still got cancer.
Father still died young.
I'm not fussed.
Is it clean and hygienic?
Is it non toxic in the conventional sense ?
Is it's provenance transparent?
I'm cool with it.
I see folks pay over the odds for organic coconut oil and I laugh my head off.
Anybody that has ever seen a coconut palm, knows that tree has no time for pesticides or fertilizer.
All that Organic this and that is pure marketing.
In most indigenous cultures, villagers usually refuse to use fertiliser on their farms because it rots their produce. They never try to get people to pay over the odds because its organic.
I see Shea butter being marketed as organic in both the USA and the UK
Shea trees are communally owned by the whole community, these folks don't have time to go putting pesticides or fertilisers on wild growing trees in the forest.
