One reason you can feel good about buying Sugar in the Raw is it
provides a way for the sugar growers in Hawaii to make sufficient
profit to stay in business.  Normally, with labor costs in the US, the
Hawaiian sugar growers can't compete with the third world.  By
marketing a "gourmet" sugar, with higher profits, it enables them to
stay in business.
So when I buy a box of Sugar in the Raw, I'm helping to prevent Maui
from being covered in condos.
Back to the original subject, though, I agree, there is a false
tendency to treat everything "chemical" as unnatural and harmful,
therefore bleached is harmful,  etc.  I tell these people that
Arsenic, Hemlock, and the wrong kind of mushrooms are all perfectly
natural, and will kill you faster than most "chemicals"
