I have no answer. It is totally ridiculous at this point. And in 10-15 years when "xyz" happens, THEN the government will say "recent tests show that eating poison is bad...".

Its like, why am I busting my butt and spending more for organic/natural products when even THOSE things have it in them? I almost feel like beating my head against a brick wall. Think it'll do just about as much good.

Off to drown my sorrows in some coffee...

I was just having this exact conversation with a friend about why the hell I cant just walk into a store and buy what I need I have to read every goddamn label so I know that were not eating shit that is not even suitable for consumption in some countries it really pisses me off that we cant trust the FDA to help us make good choices it just dawned on me I would love to know what these people who work for the FDA what they eat and do they really believe their own bullshit!

Marie,
"And in 10-15 years when "xyz" happens, THEN the government will say "recent tests show that eating poison is bad...""
exactly. And you know this is going to happen. And our damn kids are the guinea pigs.


Andrea,
This is why I hate shopping so much. It isn't like I can just run in and out. I have to debate practically every single purchase. It's exhausting.

Marie said...

LOL...it would be curious to see if the people "in the know" about everything actually eat it...like are their kids getting the same baby formula after the recent results, or have they switched to the "safest" version?? Same with all the other foods...

Mrs Furious said...

Oh and yeah that would be interesting. Either their kids are all drinking raw organic goat's milk... or they are so caught up in their own lies that their just feeding em crap?

so what about melamine dinnerware?

Mrs Furious said...

MegO,
In my opinion cold foods only. Most says not microwave safe (or top shelf dishwash only)... which means it will melt at high temps... which means it will off gas and at even lesser temps.

After a conversation with a fellow doctorate student (she's in chemistry), I'm done with plastics. Over the years, I've cut out tupperware - that was easy enough, but now I've almost entirely converted everything over to glass (or just not bought the plastic option). My one holdout is yoghurt - which in theory I could make myself, but in reality, may never happen... Sigh.

Mrs Furious said...

Meg,
I was lamenting the yogurt issue this morning. Kid takes one to school everyday. And I thought about getting a kit to make my own... my mom used to do that back in the day. But...yeah... I'm not really going to follow through on that!

What the...? Seriously? Even my organic foods are not free of this stuff?
