[FONT=Fixedsys] You are what you, eat and drink, say, and do... We will leave out the say and do until later and focus on the first two only, What if we were being bred to die??? Scary thought if that were true. Lucky for us, 'Uncle Sam' would never do such a thing to the people He governs over. However, what if that statement held validity? If fear is an illusion, then why not safety? Humans thrived for millions of years without synthetic chemical products. Do you have to eat Oreo's and drink Diet Coke? Do you have to have partially hydrogenated vegetable oils and high fructose corn syrup? Hydrogenation is a process of heating an oil and passing hydrogen bubbles through it. The fatty acids in the oil then acquire some of the hydrogen, which make even more of their low-grade, unhealthy, crappy products that we purchase because, "it's a lot cheaper". Partially hydrogenated oils will not only kill you in the long term by producing diseases like cancer, multiple sclerosis and allergies, but in the meantime they will make you fat, addicted, and prone to ADHD! Cheap chemicals benefit the manufacturer’s bottom line, not you.
We dislike debates about synthetic ingredients with those who profit from them. All I know is that cancer is a wretched way to go and it would seem that over the past 60 years, more and more of us go out that way. There has to be a reason why. Now, I am NOT pointing a finger at our government and corporations, but one and one equals two and I like adding things up. Here's what I know. Environmentalists are usually quite vocal about perceived threats ranging from pesticides to global warming, there is a silence when it comes to one threat already harming the water supply and that is hormones from birth-control pills.
