Microwave telecommunications. Um, beacuse it's microwaves? They are very common out west, rather than long distance phone lines with lines and poles, they just blast the calls through the air using microwaves.

We are all dying already. Every day is one less day so why stress about all this junk? Use common sense and go out and live.

Zombies, eventually maybe. Because cosmetics companies are trying their hardest to create advanced wrinkle erasers that work by rejuvenating DNA. Haven't they ever seen Resident Evil?

I guess the pie-in-the-sky daydream is that if we changed our behavior, we could prolong everyone's lives. I don't just talk about this stuff for myself. When I say X, Y, or Z, is a deadly killer, I sincerely hope that people will, for instance, never buy another pack of sugarfree gum or can of tuna fish. Maybe 7 out of 10 readers laugh and move on, 1 out of 10 gets mad at me for saying it, 1 out of 10 start to think about it, and 1 out of 10 actually changes their behavior (e.g., their consumer/purchasing behavior) in a way that might improve things.

Meanwhile, if these posts somehow disturb you or stress you out or bother you, you're under no obligation to read them.

And of course, these posts are fun for and beneficial to me.

CT scans. The amount of ionizing radiation in one preventive full-body CT scan is comparable to the amount some of the survivors in Japan in the 40's received.

Titanium Dioxide. But good luck finding a deodorant, soap, shampoo, sunscreen, or pre-packaged cookie-like or cake-like snack food that doesn't contain it.

very confusing message you are giving here...are you sincere that this stuff is bad? or is it fun telling everyone what is bad?

I'll ponder this as i chew some Mentos Pure Fresh sugar free gum (love me some titanium dioxde, and everyone knows titanium is one of the toughest metals, so i'm making myself stronger just by chewing).

A quick poll to see if your numbers add up...
will you change your habits based on ComplyYouMust posts in this thread?

Flawed poll. I'd have said - ComplyYouMust's posts in this thread, and in Peeves, Quirks, and the deleted "Improve Your Aim" thread, cause me to: (Choose All that Apply):
__ Laugh
__ Become angry
__ Become sad
__ Become confused
__ Goof with him
__ Think about changing 1 or more of my own behaivors
__ Definitely will change 1 or more behavior
__ Already have changed 1 or more behavior

Both, of course. I am sincere that I think this stuff is bad for us. I also find it fun to discuss, because I enjoy these topics and sometimes the replies/responses people post have me laughing out loud. And it's beneficial to me too, and might change my behavior as follows: while I'm certainly not going to be chewing any sugarfree plastic today (all gum is made from plastic components), I might think twice before bringing these issues up for discussion in a live, face-to-face social environment, given the unexpected amount of rancor and negative reactions some of my posts have elicited.

actually, appears to be fairly accurate to your original prediction...

1 of 9 has said they will change
1 of 9 has said they are considering
6 of 9 have said no change

Only a personal view but, I love common sense and loathe dithering.

It's the dithering that will get'cha.

Dithering as in...being indecisive? Or as in adding white noise?

This is a different kind of comment.

Does this mean their could also be a particle of Vlad the Impaler, Jack the Ripper, and Attila the Hun somewhere in there?

For me, dithering means dwelling on all such items contained within this discussion topic.

It is possible that I don't have proper concern about the items brought out but I just can't "gen up" much concern over any of them.

There was also Catwoman, where the wrinkle creme had to be used daily to avoid becoming a hag.

Don't know about zombies but actual hags do exist. They wander into the bank lobby on occasion, badly needing crème.

Okay, in re-reading some of CYM's posts, I think I understand somewhat from where the poster is coming. We've altered our food and personal products to include potentially toxic compounds. I do agree on principle that moving back to a more natural product base would potentially be healthier for humans and the planet, the conveniences of modern life might make it a difficult transition. That said:

*I use soap nuts in my laundry
*I use wool balls in the dryer
*I use naturally-derived dish soap
*I use naturally-derived shampoo and body wash
*I avoid products with added fragrances

It's a small step.

If I avoid bad things and food with possible contaminants I will live the exact same age as I would have had I not avoided them. If I had a child I would not feed the child organic meat. Why? Because it would not make him/her live longer. But it would ensure that the new body would not have trace amounts of hormones that would cause him to grow as much as the other kids. IE, this kid would end up to likely be smaller.

Life - Not one of us will get out of it alive.

My 104 year old grandma loved her beer.
My 92 year old great-aunt just jumped out of a plane.
My 72 year old late grandmother walked 3 miles every single morning and still died of Alzheimer's.

And my daughter has a CT scan every 2 years to make sure that the cancer hasn't come back or that the portal vein clotted (which it has). Both of which will kill her too.

I try to eat clean, work-out more, and live every day to the fullest. Which means giving my worries to a higher power. You're darn right, everything is going to kill us. But I've cheated death once already, and I know it will find me again in due time.

I remember when we got our first microwave oven. I would want to watch it heat the food, but my mom wouldn't let me look in because it would give me cancer. Considering it took a minute to melt a piece of cheese I think I may have been safe with a peek. smile

Back in the olden days, my mother told me watch TV no closer than five feet from the 1959 Philco black-and-white or I'd ruin my eyes.
