My project was inspired by my own personal quest to improve my own health as a whole. For over a year now, I have been introducing natural and organic products into my health regimen. My passion of learning about the properties of the natural world has manifested into my Senior Independent Study. I believe that humankind as a whole is losing touch with nature and what nature provides. I also think that it is becoming easier for us to develop new technologies that go against healthy perceptions of the body. I understand that progress and technology are two things that define humankind; however the change from natural to artificial has become quite drastic and I believe this divide should be acknowledged.
