A Natural Mistake: Why Natural, Organic, and Botanical Products Are Not as Safe as You Think

Adult; Health, Diet & Parenting

This authoritative book explains why the belief that natural and organic products are inherently safer and more healthful than those produced using synthetic chemicals and pesticides is erroneous. It shows how this mistake has misguided consumers, legislators, and government regulators, and has led to often-unrecognized serious health issues. Examples of unrecognized health problems caused by dietary supplements and natural products are included and the relative risks and benefits of conventional and natural products are discussed. In conclusion, advice is provided to consumers for more rational dietary and pharmaceutical choices and appeals are made to regulators for provision of more uniform safety standards for dietary constituents, pharmaceuticals, and botanical supplements.
