Sense Or Nonsense: Chemical vs. Natural
The terms 'natural' and 'organic' have come to be associated with health, whereas the word 'chemical' today connotes poison and toxicity. But Dr. Joe Schwarcz, a chemist by trade, wants the world to know that just because something is synthetically made does not mean it is inferior or more dangerous than a natural product. Examples such as snake venom and poison ivy stand as proof that Mother Nature can be just as volatile as a scientist. In this video, WatchMojo.com speaks with Dr. Schwarcz about chemical versus natural, and also which chemicals have unfairly been classified as 'bad,' as discussed in his book, 'Science, Sense and Nonsense.'
