But breast feeding is natural. So, that's just ridiculous.

... Seriously? By definition, it is natural. That's like saying your salad is natural is going to hurt the feelings of the person eating B a Twinkie.

But it IS natural and the healthiest way to feed babies. So do they want us to lie? Because that is an ethical issue.

It is natural.  But, to some, it doesn't come naturally.

Sometimes natural is best and sometimes it's not. Even the holistic doctor we go to will sometimes prescribe stuff that's not natural because in that case it's better.
Nothing wrong with homeschooling like this article suggests either.
My kids aren't vaccinated because of a family history of vaccine reactions so strong even mainstream doctors agreed it was best not to risk it.

I am appalled that these authors are considered "experts." Furthermore there is something insidious in the idea that people do not have the right to choose for themselves and their families how to live. Choosing an alternative approach is allowed although as time goes on the medical front is doing everything they can to combat that.

Oh, for crying out loud! Breastfeeding is natural, breastfeeding is healthier. That doesn't translate in everything that's natural is healthier.
