My point is back to the basics. I don't want hexaflorotrichloro BS in my beer. Sugar, caramel, corn, ...I can live with. (Though I really don't like corn taste in my beer). Good ingredients to produce good beer in a simple, easy way. This is not rocket science.

Chemistry is science,, though, and the question of what is "natural" is a very complex one. The industrial process to grow the malt and hops (unless you buy organic) and even to treat municipal water uses more chemicals than anything homebrewers are adding.
There's nothing bad about simplifying process, especially unnecessary process. Just saying that the question of what is natural, safe, etc is an extremely complex one. Oversimplifying it can do more harm than good.
