These "all natural" products seem to be preferable over their more processed counterparts. Another favorite phrase heard is, "We don't want those chemicals; we like all natural!" (Everything is made up of chemicals, by the way. Literally everything). Aside from most people not really understanding what "All Natural" labeling means, we've somehow made it synonymous with healthy or good for us, as if nature would never provide anything that would harm us. As this list will clarify, that simply isn't the case. Just because something is "all natural" doesn't mean that it is in any way without risks or side effects. Nature has some pretty big teeth. To help us get some perspective on this, here are 25 All Natural Things That Can Be Harmful To You.

  1. To quote Hank Green: " Like, I don't just sit down and, like, eat a tub of lard when I'm marathoning Firefly! But that would be all natural!"
  2. Why would you need a vegan substitute for honey?
  3. Do not eat wild mushrooms period, regardless of who says they're "OK". Even my mycology professor, who was an expert, wouldn't eat them.
  4. Death is natural.
  5. Brussel Sprouts. They taste horrendous. That's harmful to my palate.
  6. so basically we are safe from nothing. and we are all unhealthy.
  7. I thought my ex girlfriend would b awesome and then it wasnt so cool
  8. grizzly bear
  9. yea left jab is perfectly natural.. and yet will harm your ... jaw...murder is also natural..watch lions taking down prey on NG what BS video headline

  17. Hemlock is surely not good for you, it kills for sure. If the last food there at home you've got is potatoes turned green, for starters before doing anything else peel away ALL green and you'll be OK. Also Valeriana Officinale is quite a good sedative for upset nerves as tea, but in constant and excessive use will shortly lead into heart arythmia conditions. So, don't be a stupido, take care and you'll be OK <3
