To Citizen B: As a board member of a major petrochemical manufacturer/distributor, I'd like to personally thank you for expressing the right attitude toward our products. We share your puzzlement and disappointment toward those "informed consumers" who stubbornly take responsibility for their own well-being. The chemical industry has laboured very hard to ensure that our products are ever-present in the lives of humanity. And know that the price we pay, in the form of promises made to government officials (who are dependent on us for their post-political careers), is very high. Office towers built simply to house our lobbyist are testimony to our diligence. From the time you blissfully fall sleep til the moment you awake each day - the silent Miracle of Chemistry is there for you. God spede.
You forgot to mention VACCINES. That is a toxin each child getting vaccinated is carrying around in the home! It is far worse than any of the toxins you mentioned in this article!
When all you commentators start glowing in the dark you'll be sorry.
You have a solution to the news media analysis of chemicals. You can ignore everything a journalist writes and live to age 80. Or you can fear all chemicals and die at age 40. If you are worried about your kids, you might just want to eliminate news journalists by requiring them to follow their own advice. They'd be dead by age 35!
they didn't mention fluoride which is more toxic than lead and only slightly less toxic than arsenic also used as a rodent poison. which our city's deliberately add to our water supply. water the thing no living thing no one can live without.
Wrap yourself in a plastic bag and breathe deeply. Soon, all your fears of being infected, corrupted, poisoned, or assaulted by chemicals - will be over. LORD ALMIGHTY. When will this crap ever stop? We are constantly being terrorized by these articles, made to fear everything that we come into contact with, be it food, fabric, containers or even the air we breathe. We contaminated the environment, now let's just live with it since no one is going to change it. Live until you die. This is really idiotic.....
Hidden Toxins In Your Home are all the result of government intervention about the materials sofas, eating utensils, carpet, etc etc are made from, hasn't anyone else noticed that over the past 30 years the USA government has forced companies to use toxic materials to make products from, have financed the genetic alteration of our food source thereby causing the current obesity expedemic
I find these so called heath alerts harmful to my health.
The mere presence of toxic chemicals in food or the environment does not mean they are at a high enough concentration to hurt anyone. Food, even organic food, is loaded with chemicals that can be very toxic in higher doses. It's not enough to say there are toxins present. You have to say how much and whether that concentration is of any concern. These days, virtually none of them are. DK
Yet another YawnHoo story reporting nothing new! Slow news day. Guess no one AK-47'ed a mall / school today.
