The assumption that "natural" is usually beneficial and always somehow superior to synthetic.

Most recently triggered by a commercial for some artificial sweetener. No, really? It's made out of a plant? With leaves and everything? Wow! So are an awful lot of common products. Even products "artificially produced using chemistry." And this sweetener? Also processed using chemistry! Shock and awe!

And, you know? I'd much, much rather eat artificially produced food-grade chemicals than naturally occurring poisons.
