+419 People are always saying that "going green" is better, because non-green products are "poison." But, aren't most dangerous poisons, like arsenic and asbestos, naturally occurring poisons? amirite?

I'm not against going green, I use green products to clean and whatnot. I just think the argument is flawed, because naturally occurring poisons are just as dangerous and deadly as man-made ones. So be careful what green products you buy, because they might not be any less dangerous than other non-green products. It's being used as a scam now.

Oh I see. It's a shame how we aren't investing into technology to help us go green though, right.

True. Like, I just saw a RAID commercial claiming that they use a naturally occurring plant poison to kill bugs, but that plant poison may be just as bad as other poisons.

It's a sad world when making money is more important than being healthy and caring about the world we take for granted

It's sad, and it's been happening for years. And they make a ton of money because "green" products are more expensive than non-green ones.

I'm pretty sure the main reason we should "go green" is to prevent causing any further harm to our massive home known as the Earth. But I see your point. ;)

It's the main reason CONSUMERS go green, not companies. It's just a way of selling their stuff, making more money.

"Going green" encompasses a variety of lifestyle choices that affect the environment. It doesn't really have to do with dangerous poisons like arsenic anymore (although it has historically, like with DDT). Where are you quoting from, OP?

Commercials and people who say that going green is better because non-green stuff is poison... Nothing directly quoted.

Going green isn't always the best option. There's nothing wrong fruits/veggies/food that have been grown using inorganic fertilizers and chemicals. These fertilizers can make fruits taste better, last longer, and have higher nutrition content. Going green in terms of cars and gas is clearly a different story. But true organic fruits/veggies are usually poorer quality (very low shelf life, less or equal taste, smaller in size, and less appealing in appearance)
