Appeal To Nature

Appeal To Nature is a cognitive bias and logical fallacy in which an individual assumes that because something is natural, it is also better or more desirable. This bias is based on the assumption that anything natural is superior to anything that is artificial or synthetic. This bias can be seen in many contexts, such as consumer products, health and lifestyle choices, and even political opinions. It is important to note that Appeal To Nature does not always lead to better decision making, as it is possible for something to be natural and still be harmful. It is therefore important to assess the facts and evidence before making any decisions based on the assumption that something is superior simply because it is natural.

Organic, Naturalistic, Biophilia.
