Natural: adj. existing in nature and/or (caused by and/or made by nature) with a minimum of human changes but preferably with no human changes
Wilderness and the animals and plants living there even with humans as natural hunters and gatherers is the natural state of things. As soon as humans start agriculture then this is no longer natural but nature modified by humans.
Organic farming is not really natural but modified by humans with forms of fertilization which may be the use of natural ingredients but nevertheless in unnatural quantities. What is even more unnatural is humans using artificial fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, and GMOs to grow food. Processed food adds more unnatural things to the human diet.
Driving in cars, living in city apartments, and using computers and cellphones is also unnatural but humans are learning to adapt to the new technological circumstances.
The more removed from nature humans are the more long duration problems this creates. Artificial food and drink, drugs, and an overly sedentary life is devastating human health and this is reflected in the unhealthy state of gut bacteria which is largely responsible for keeping us healthy in the long duration.
We can’t revert back to a hunter gatherer state for all humans and behave truly naturally but we can start by promoting organic food and drink with our dollars. This will go a long way towards improving our gut bacteria as long as we stay away from antibiotics, lopsided food supplements, and artificial drugs such as anti psychotics, hormones, and steroids which do more harm than good in the long duration.
It is impossible for modern humans to live naturally and most of us would not choose to live that way. NATURAL FOOD AND DRINK is fundamental to our health and ignoring this dominant fact is already creating health tragedy in modern human lives and will lead to more and perhaps irreversible tragic health consequences for all in the future.
Promote organic food and drink as much as possible because it is as close to natural as we can realistically get in this human modified world!!!!!!
