Chemicals are AWESOME: Unpopular Opinion Post

Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest… all are filled with health-minded memes that are leading you to make bad choices.

This article will help you understand why a common health meme and marketing wording is misleading.

“Chemical-Free”

Also known as:

  • Avoid chemicals
  • Chemicals are evil
  • Chemicals are bad for you

What is a chemical?

Everything. Everything is a chemical.

In order for scientists to have a common language where they can discuss the components of… everything… they needed to have words to describe things.

A chemical is any substance consisting of matter.

Even a container filled with air cannot be chemical free. The jar itself, as well as the air inside, are chemicals.

And guess what else is a chemical? YOU. You are made up of chemicals!

Chemicals are NOT bad.

“Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer.” ~Dave Barry

What you probably mean by chemicals.

You want to make sure that what you put into your body and onto your skin is going to cause the least harm possible while providing you with a benefit, right?

You want the bathroom cleansers in your home to clean and kill bad germs, without making your puppies and babies sick.

You want the glasses you drink out of to not leach into the contents of the glass.

When you say that you want to “avoid chemicals” what you mean is you want to avoid substances in amounts that are toxic and harmful to the body.
