Appeal to nature 

Definition: The fallacy of Appealing to Nature believes that everything that comes from nature is good and true and helps people and can be consumed and will have good results since it is natural and that helps and medications such as pills that are manufactured with chemicals or things that are unnatural are bad or do not work and that natural things are always better than artificial ones and it is the idea that natural things are never bad and that a person who uses only natural remedies has better health or life, and everything that comes from nature can be consumed and is healthy and safe. 

Example: Vaccines against COVID are unnatural so they do not work and can have side effects in children. In this example, we can see the belief that everything that is not natural, that is, chemicals, is not good and can have side effects on people.
