For the All-Natural Food Fans Out There

Something that has always bugged me is any unconsidered insistence on "all-natural" foods, because it's basically an embrace of the doctrine of vitalism. Sometimes there are good reasons, i.e. evidence, why the synthetic version of a substance isn't of the same quality and has different properties, but usually it's just groupthink. So, enjoy this Onion radio news report, "All-Natural Food Preservative Causes All-Natural Cancer." (With audio.) NICE.
