I keep hearing people praise "natural" products even beyond the limits of the laws of physics! For example, a friend of mine who studies medicine said that natural vitamin C has different effects than artificial different C (the artificial one has some side effects) even though they have the same chemical structure. And he's going to be a freaking doctor! I'm sorry I can't remember what the specific difference was. If there is any truth to these claims, then it must relate to the manufacturing process: artificial vitamin C may come together with other by-products that cause the side-effects, while natural vitamin C comes together with other plant stuff that might help the body. Thoughts on this?
