“there’s no proof dirt is good for you.”
“therefore dirt is bad for you. (And causes cholera.”
Oh you know I’m talking about your logical fallacy there.
You rigorously analyze of a lack of good evidence for dirt eating. Did you rigorously analyze weather eating dirt is proven to cause cholera? Or that avoiding eating dirt improved ones chances of avoiding cholera? The basis of your argument seems to actually rest on “common sense” about not eating dirt, rather than proving that it’s either worthless or bad.
