Don't ever say anything bad about meatloaf - meatloaf is delicious! (That's an adaptation of a quote about donuts from the flick White Castle, I think).

(crickets)

Anyway for those who didn't click the link, the claim is that a chain restaurant's food made two people so violently ill that they died. So I definitely wouldn't recommend eating that joint's meatloaf and chasing it with Haribo sugarfree gummy bears.

And yes, absolutely: Chain Restaurant Food is a Deadly Killer. Near as I can tell, it's all basically a bunch of TV dinners. Prepared elsewhere, factory-style, shipped frozen, and simply warmed up by the "chefs" in the restaurant's "kitchen." That's Cracker Barrel, Applebee's, Chili's, you name it. Not to mention their 3,000-calorie dinner plates.

I mean, sure, they have bugs in the red dye, but still, that's some tasty, tasty bugs.

Late-comer here and don't have time to read all 34 pages....

Food buffets can kills you......especially when parent let their kids run wild around the place, getting their own food with no supervision whatsoever.

Avoiding the out-of-doors can kill you...

Being sedentary can kill you....these days when people don't exercise and hire someone else to do every single household job there is (house cleaning, lawn mowing, car washing, etc).

A few comments:

Fracking is bad but it's a money maker....it's not going away.

Flu shots...I take one because it's free, and I've NEVER had influenza, but have been told that if I ever DO contract it, I will take the flu shot from then on. Most people say, "I have the flu" when they don't have influenza.

Margerine....never!! Plenty of good old fashioned BUTTER. I have borderline high cholesterol...definitely not caused by diet...I won't take a statin....makes me feel like c@rp...and your body needs cholesterol for joint repair and other stuff.

The body is an amazing thing. It CAN process tons of bad stuff and survive. We can't avoid everything that might be bad.

Diet sodas...yes....but I don't tote a bucket of the stuff around all day long and I DO drink plenty of water too. Most people who carry the bucket of soda drink that exclusively, avoiding water altogether.

City water?...not here....tastes bad. But I don't buy cases of bottled water. I have gallon glass bottles that I refill with RO water....then fill smaller GLASS bottles to take with me to the gym and other places.

Organ meat....I eat it occasionally. Pink meat....beef, yes....ahi tuna, yes. Raw sushi...no.

Processed foods will kill you...just concentrate on whole foods....you will be fine.

Castoreum, made from the pheromone glands located near the base of the tail of North American beavers, and used as a food additive but often labeled merely as “natural flavor,” “strawberry flavor,” or used to make imitation vanilla extract.

I read that the combined US consumption of it is less than 1,000 pounds per year, and many companies say they don't use it. Still, whenever I see the cheaper, fake vanilla extract on the shelf at the grocery store, my lip curls away from my teeth. (That's one - of many - problems with really digging conspiracy theories: even when they are debunked, I think the attempts to debunk are just evidence of the truthfulness of the original claim. laugh )

My (possibly preposterous) reason for listing "beaver scent as food" in this thread, despite the fact that FDA assures us of its safety: I don’t think we know enough about glandular function in animals to know whether it is safe to eat their secretions. We don’t know what we don’t know, sure, but it just defies common sense to milk these glands and eat their juices as a cheaper alternative to a readily available plant food.

Food coloring (like in all those red and green Christmas cookies, and pretty much everything else in a pretty color that comes from the grocery store, and lots of foods that don't seem like or look like they need food dyes but which have them anyway), because some of the most common chemical food dyes are carcinogenic.


"The three most widely used culprits—Yellow 5, Yellow 6 and Red 40—contain compounds, including benzidine and 4-aminobiphenyl, that research has linked with cancer." http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/food_news/the_hidden_health_risks_of_food_dyes

A few counter comments:

A few comments:

Fracking is bad but it's a money maker....it's not going away. Better than financing people who REALLY DO want to kill you...
Flu shots...I take one because it's free, and I've NEVER had influenza, but have been told that if I ever DO contract it, I will take the flu shot from then on. Most people say, "I have the flu" when they don't have influenza. Never taken flu shot when I have not subsequently gotten the flu...
Margerine....never!! Plenty of good old fashioned BUTTER. I have borderline high cholesterol...definitely not caused by diet...I won't take a statin....makes me feel like c@rp...and your body needs cholesterol for joint repair and other stuff. Don't forget the bacon!
The body is an amazing thing. It CAN process tons of bad stuff and survive. We can't avoid everything that might be bad.

Diet sodas...yes....but I don't tote a bucket of the stuff around all day long and I DO drink plenty of water too. Most people who carry the bucket of soda drink that exclusively, avoiding water altogether. Agreed.
City water?...not here....tastes bad. But I don't buy cases of bottled water. I have gallon glass bottles that I refill with RO water....then fill smaller GLASS bottles to take with me to the gym and other places.

Organ meat....I eat it occasionally. Pink meat....beef, yes....ahi tuna, yes. Raw sushi...no. Organ meat? Never eat it, the keys get stuck between my teeth!
Processed foods will kill you...just concentrate on whole foods....you will be fine.

Dog ran away for the 2nd day in a row making me late for work. Never found him this time. The stress is going to kill me.
