[Logo]   "It's all natural, so it must be good for you"

I've heard a number of advertisements which say this about their product. You can also say it about:

And, while not all sources of arsenic are all natural, it can be found in many plants, so you can get all natural arsenic.

Another naturally occurring chemical is Cyanide, which we all know is good for you.

So, if you think "It's all natural" is a selling point for food, I suggest you eat some Hemlock!

Other sites

As you might suspect, other sites talk about this, too. Check out one of the TvTropes entries.

And finally

The word 'natural' is completely meaningless! Everything is natural! Nature includes everything! It's not just trees and flowers! It's everything! A chemical company's toxic waste is completely natural! It's part of nature! We're all part of nature! Everything is natural! Dog shit is natural! It's just not real good food.

And finally, a random note:
When I die I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather and not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car.
