I agree with you 100% QCL ...... this last line you wrote reminds me of The Book Thief.

There's a difference between "trying to change people's behavior" and fear mongering. Maybe ask yourself which you are doing? You're free to yell "Fire!" from your porch all you like, but in a crowded theater (or on the internet), perhaps it's a teensy bit irresponsible to go shouting about things that might kill you when you have zero evidence to back it up.

I agree with you on aspartame/fake sugar. I avoid that stuff like the plague.

Two answers...
A. Ah. Please allow me to clarify the purpose and motivation of this thread. I wanted to find out what things people think are doing us harm/damage (or potentially doing so), and why they think that -- regardless of whether or not they are right or think that they are right about it. Asking for a citation of any stated reason is outside the scope of this thread and its safe harbor rules on reasons not needing to be scientific, verifiable, or citable. It's just about what a given poster, out of 1,000 other people, doesn't want or avoids, and why. They don't have to convince me, or anyone else, that their reasons are valid. smile

B. "The radiation dose from a full-body CT scan is comparable to the doses received by some of the atomic-bomb survivors from Hiroshima and Nagasaki, where there is clear evidence of increased cancer risk." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/08/040831090104.htm
That's 10-year-old news and I'm sure any competent Googler could find a dozen articles that "discredit" my reason. I don't care about that. See answer A above.

This...because it bears repeating. You say you're looking to see what others think. Yet your posts read as facts not as 'I think this is bad because....' And you're not willing to post citations to back up your 'facts'. This board and this thread are more akin to a theater than a porch. jmho

Yes, I stopped eating fruited yogurt because of this. Blah!

along this line, saw an article this weekend that said for years we told people not to eat butter and sugar, and now that we are 20+ years down this path, realize that eating sugar and butter is much better for you than the fake alternatives...

know anyone who has been vegetarian for more than 10 years? look how their skin is a leathery condition, and they look ill. lack of protien and other vitamins that veggies and pills can't provide. i still drink whole milk, forget that 2% stuff. i eat ice cream. i love white bread (although i also love wheat bread). I eat crunchy peanut butter. i spread butter on saltine crackers. i make kool-aid with sugar, never the sugar free.

but as with all things eaten, any of it is done in moderation (except for Ben and Jerry's Cherry Garcia, if i open a pint of that stuff, i don't stop until it is gone). and exercise. and drink plenty of water...

in the end, i'll still die...

o.m.g. Other than my immediate family, you are the first person I have ever 'met' who does this too!!! This habit is what prompted me to get a butter bell so that my butter is always spreading consistency and doesn't shatter the cracker.

My thing with aspartame is it doesn't occur naturally, it's created chemically. Our bodies can't process it like they can with real sugar. Overall, I feel like it's better to eat foods that are as unprocessed as possible.

Unless you are out in the woods hunting and gathering all foods are processed. shocked

This!

I stick with as many whole foods as possible, grabbing fruit and nuts for a snack whenever I can, but I'm not giving up my steak or juicy burger!
