Natural Living

Natural Living

This came my way via Facebook. I’ve often thought it ironic that people in a time when modern medicine has eliminated so many diseases that are part of nature, have the luxury of talking about living in harmony with nature. Nature provides things which we have evolved to eat, and so can be better for us than synthetic, high-fructose corn syrup-laden products. But food poisoning and illness are “natural,” and I am grateful for the advances in understanding and technology which allow us to live “unnaturally” long lives.

    Humans in a “state of nature” do live past 30 years; the lower average lifespan is due to infant mortality.
