One can go against or break a law (a principle) knowingly, or out of ignorance. But as I said above: "If we choose to go against, that is, to ignore, any established law, or principle, we have to be prepared...to accept that there are consequences."

For example, modern biochemists "discovered" Vitamin C in the early 1930's.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_C#Discovery_of_ascorbic_acid

This discovery only proved what many--including so called shamans--long before this already "knew"--without calling it a vitamin. It is a fact of history that an native shaman help save Cartier's men from scurvy by giving them a drink made out of pine needles.
The principle is: Human beings must ingest foods which contain Vitamin C. Unlike most animals, we cannot make it within the body.
