Today’s topic: Are We Natural Cyborgs?
Are We Natural Cyborgs?
Diet and fitness marketing tends to refer to what is ‘natural’. Many diets promote a way of eating that is ‘natural’ and the way we evolved to eat.
But are we natural beings anymore?
It’s not uncommon for people to have many artificial, prosthetic or unnatural ‘parts’ to their body.
We can have surgically reconstructed joints, bones, eyes, ears (hearing aids), artificial hearts, mesh plating (stents), balloons, sensors (pacemakers), artificial valves, and many other artificial parts to replace or enhance our ‘naturally’ failing parts.
We also have drugs that mimic or replace the functioning of ‘natural’ systems of the body that just aren’t working well anymore.
It then becomes a question of what is natural. Does it even make sense to strive for what is ‘natural’ with our diet and fitness if our bodies are becoming less natural themselves.
In this new era of modern medicine and devices you could argue that we’re becoming ‘natural cyborgs’.
