Scienceploitation
Season 1  |  Episode 6  |  SBS  |  May 13, 2019

As a society, we've become obsessed with the concept of organic food and products, chemical-free farming, healing foods, and natural remedies. People are distrusting GMOs, pharmaceuticals, and other 'non-natural' solutions. Organic products fetch a premium price. Families are turning to holistic approaches to medical issues, sometimes with fatal consequences. But what is causing people to distrust modern medicine and approaches to farming? Where does this romantic notion of 'natural is better' come from? And most importantly, are these stances scientifically supportable? Original title: A User's Guide to Cheating Death.
