Fighting Chemophobia

This is really cool! There’s this huge, often uninformed, push towards “natural” or “pure” products without the recognition that even fruits and vegetables contain dozens of chemicals we don’t recognize.

“James Kennedy, a high school teacher from Haileybury in Australia, has created ingredients lists for ‘raw’ foods that have not been processed in any way.
And they list as many as 50 different chemicals, and sometimes even more, with some very off-putting scientific names to prove that even the most natural of foods contain acids, E numbers and preservatives.”

Of course, some chemicals are still bad but it just kind of gives you a different perspective!
