Obviously Juicero-man and the people who are into raw-water / goop / anti-vacc etc. are all complete fucking idiots of the greatest magnitude, but critical is also kinda talkin' shit here.
He is certainly engaging in hyperbole and making over broad statement.
Eg. Stone age tech level farmers / hunter gatherers tend to die young from either disease or chronic warfare, *but*, if they dont succumb to these they tend to live extremely long and simply dont seem to suffer from cancer or heart-disease, the main killers in the civilised world.
Also growing up and living in an unnaturally clean environment (which our immune systems were never designed for) may be related to the massive increase in allergies in the west.
Also did you know that hunter gatherers all have perfect teeth? They have more teeth than us, They never have wisdom teeth issues (which can be fucking awful) and their lower and upper jaw meet perfectly. This is because the jaw is designed to grow to its correct size in response to chewing, we dont chew enough tough food as babies so our jaws are too small for our teeth.
Modern medicine is nowhere near complete. We can still learn a lot from primitive societies + modern industrial life does affect our health adversely in some ways.
When you're dealing with this 'raw water' type shit theres no need to overstate the case. You can clearly debunk it without being fallacious yourself.
Both my grandmothers had polio as children. One went blind and the other walked with crutches from the age of 5 to her death. My paternal grandfather was abandoned by his parents in an orphanage and died of an easily diagnosed and maintained heart condition at the age of 26. 22 years before I was born. My maternal grandfather is perfectly healthy, and walks 2 miles a day well into his 90s, because he’s a fanatical old fashioned Methodist teetotaler who has seen everybody he ever loved grow old, and now it’s just hatred and spite that keeps him going.
What I’m trying to say is the past was awful. Don’t think they knew some secret you don’t. The strong ones were just stronger than most people and the weak ones weren’t morally deficient or insiffuciently dedicated to following their bliss. They suffered and went without so you could thrive. They want you to succeed. They fought wars and survived depressions and left their places of origin so you could exist.
Don’t drink raw water. You don’t have to.
Moral quandary; are the children of dangerously dumb rich people worth protecting from their parents, or are they inevitably just little stupid rich people?
From an New York Times article on the trend:
"At Rainbow Grocery, a cooperative in this city’s Mission District, one brand of water is so popular that it’s often out of stock. But one recent evening, there was a glittering rack of it: glass orbs containing 2.5 gallons of what is billed as “raw water” — unfiltered, untreated, unsterilized spring water, $36.99 each and $14.99 per refill, bottled and marketed by a small company called Live Water.
“It has a vaguely mild sweetness, a nice smooth mouth feel, nothing that overwhelms the flavor profile,” said Kevin Freeman, a shift manager at the store. “Bottled water’s controversial. We’ve curtailed our water selection. But this is totally outside that whole realm.”
Ah, that delightful mouthfeel and it has the tantalizing, tangy hint of toxic pathogens.

I get my silica the old-fashioned way, by eating handfuls diatomaceous earth.
I am 100% behind any movement or fad that will lead to an increase of affluent white idiots poisoning themselves. In fact I hope it leads to folks figuring out where the raw supply is coming from and purposefully tainting it
What about affluent black and brown idiots? Is the problem here their affluence, their race, or their idiocy?

Dr. Strangelove 2 is going to be about some Silicon Valley yuppie writing a virus to launch US nukes against itself because government and corporations want to sap our precious bodily fluids with their fluorides and vaccines and pasteurization to create a more docile and subservient populace.
Actually, to keep it more in line with the original, sapping our fluids to make us less sexually potent, to make us more docile etc
