Chemical companies put chemicals on the market sometimes without doing the testing they need to do to find the impacts on people, We need a check in the form of the USEPA and California EPA to help make sure we are protected. It si supposed that there is chemical involvement in the rate of increase of certain kinds of cancers and in the epidemic rate of certain disabilities like autism. Thank you for the work you do. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I would like to know more about foods and their link to fibroid tumors! Are chemicals the cause – is it microwaves? What is it? Well research may get to the bottom of all of it.

Obviously, the commercial interest is that each product retain an alluring flavor and remain unspoiled on the shelf until sold by any means necessary; whereas the consumer’s interest is to eat whatever tastes good and be happy. This conflict of interest is making millions of people sick as their bodies struggle to process the chemical preservatives and flavor enhancers that lace most of the foods sold today.

But why is that happening? Because of mass production for millions of customers. If each family could grow its own food on its own land according to organic gardening standards, there would be no need for chemical preservatives and artificial flavoring.
