lol looks someone finally pulled out of his shame spiral due to getting called out last night.
A great man
O_G... Great thread
This is the first time you've ever posted anything that I agree with 100% BTW.
The word needs to be spread about the toxins we are fed. I try to eat as much local, organic foods because of this.
Has anyone mentioned that much of the us corn supply is tainted with genetically modified seed produce by Monsanto (the company that produced agent orange )? This seed produces its own pesticides, and YES we ingest them. The cancer rate in the US has shot through the roof since its introduction in 1997. Coincidence? I think not...

People need to quit the impulsive arguing on this topic, do a little research, and quit poisoning their children. This topic is no joke, and our government, as well as the media have been covering it up quite successfully until recently.
Heck; most of the civilized world WILL NOT allow the importation of American food products. Those that you see abroad are produced of organic ingredients, and without corn syrup; because they know its toxic.
I just ate a pound and a half of beef. processed. pink.
what else is there to eat
A great man
Unfortunately all organic products are a lot more expensive than the processed versions. Since a large portion of the US has money issues, especially during these last few years what choice do those people have? They have to eat, but they can't afford the good, natural products so they settle with the cheap lunchmeat filled with preservatives and other crap that they sell at a variety store.
And it's quite easy to spew the 'OMG toxic food destroying our bodies' bull**** without considering a) how much of the substance is actually toxic, b) how much of it is actually absorbed and used/abused by our bodies, c) what is the long term harm when considering one's average metabolic rate, and d) is the substance immediately or eventually neutralized?
I'm all for organic foods, and I try to eat as informed and healthy as possible, but I also understand that there are people (like yourself) much smarter than me when it comes to how this type of stuff actually affects my well being. An analogy in my field would be the recent 'disclosure' of the seemingly exponential rise in autism without considering the also now exponentially lenient criteria for diagnosis, as well as the expansion of the spectrum in general, when noting these 'alarming' statistics. Though I haven't been to any anti-vaccine sites, I bet they're having a field day with it.
Im gonna get everything on the list, throw all that sh!t in a blender, and go out with a bang!

Eat whatever you want.
You probably can't afford to live past 90 anyway.
There are two main methods of producing HFCS, one of which involves mercury (and subsequently mercury contamination) and the other doesn't. Not only did the FDA not force the industry to just use the latter, they didn't let the public know about the problem and refused to follow up on a whistle-blower's studies/info/warning. That person retired from the FDA.
I could understand being dismissive in a broad-brush way of my post if I had primarily linked to poorly-supported scare sites that are making extravagant claims. But, I didn't.
It's also, for instance, a factual matter that Bush exempted power plants -- the #1 source of mercury emissions -- from anti-mercury regulation. It's a factual matter that many fish have become the equivalent of living toxic waste -- particularly for pregnant women, and such a decision certainly leads to the problem. Mercury scrubbers could have readily been installed at all coal plants, but no...

Representatives of BOTH political parties have been downright criminally negligent in this matter. Its obvious they are both bought, and paid for by big agriculture.
Every now and then I eat smoked oysters from China. How else am I supposed to get my Cadmium?
Meh, after living in China for about a year, for the third time in my life, I'm experiencing an all-too-familiar feeling: a fear of eating anything and an overpowering urge to get back home to North America.
You eat the wrong thing in North America for 30 years, and you wind up with some minor ailment. You eat (or drink) the wrong thing just ONCE here in China, and you're incapacitated for a week or worse. I've had liquor that made me violently ill for two days, red wine that gave me such a killer headache I was involuntarily moaning in pain and T3s did nothing to stop it, meat that made me felt like I was on speed, candies that took away my appetite for 3 days, I've gotten food poisoning basically once a month, and everyone I FaceTime with at home says it looks like I've aged five years since I left Canada. I've lost 20 lbs, no matter how much I exercise and no matter how much so-called "protein" I eat I can't get the muscle mass back.
Not to say there isn't a problem in North America, but it could be much, much worse.
you guys need a better 'news' source... jus' sayin', eh
