Will "natural" health and medicine practices save the world? On this week's episode of Straight, No Chaser, Katy Keiffer chats with freelance journalist Nathanael Johnson about everything from microbes to community gardens. Nathanael's first book "All Natural*: *A Skeptic's Quest to Discover If the Natural Approach to Diet, Childbirth, Healing, and the Environment Really Keeps Us Healthier and Happier", separates fact from faith when it comes to natural practices. Tune into today's program to get more insight into the themes and ideas explored in the book. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.
