this is for cruisin, who thinks name calling is smart. It is not. Back in the late 1800's it was found plants made styrene.You libs know it as the little jelly cups you see in restaurants. It was thought way back then, by the chemists, start laughing cruisin, that styrene could be used to package food ! Of course if they thought like cruisin and the rest of the liberals that post, nothing would happen. It turned ut that styrene could not be made easily, that had to wait till our times. I believe the gals were healing, like renee, advocating prohibition. cruisin, still feeling smart?the guy chemists made all the chemicals and the money. People like Val just write, advocating a healing. Or better they go pink ! the guys went green with money and again, the gals messed up !

cruisin goofs again and so does Val. here is the proof. In the 60's activists were demonstrating for social justice , fairness , equity and womens rights. I noticed the pictures of the cops, they were almost laughing ! Gal power in action, healing as renee would say. In Silicon valley,at the same time, fortunes were to be made in electronics. the gals are merely demonstraing like Val is writing . Today, they are still activists demanding other people and businesses do what the gals like val want. Their mistake ?This. Today , pop divas have made hundreds of millions. Add the money hollywood liberal gals make and we could easily get a billion in cash for a start up.So Val, get your liberal gal friends in hollywood, LWV, tap those billions and start a food company . You could say you use green energy and are all natural. What are you waiting for ? A guy chemist like myself to help you ?

Now we know why Snoozer is the way he is - a retired chemist who believes that if it's legal then it's safe. Ha ha ha ha ha!

Now a good roast beef and swiss with some mayo and horseradish with a tall glass of whole white or chocolate milk (none of that 25 stuff please)sounds perfect.

Tell us something we don't already know. Aspartame has long been thought to cause headaches and seizures.. in people that are susceptible to it to begin with.

Hey Val, as one gets older,the body loses the abilty to fight off things that want to destroy it. If the human body is just left to the world of nature, nature will destroy it. This is counter intuitive to most. Whatever is functioning in the world of nature is modified greatly in the human organism. Thats why plants can live thousands of years and humans , well a hundred is a miracle.This was known to the ancients , they had sacred rites to stave off this perpetual decay in the human. People had cancer in the ancient greek time. The human body as made is ALWAYS, but ALWAYS decaying, finally landing up in a cemetery. Eating is necessary but insufficient to stave off this decay. This is the basis of religion, now greatly mocked by the scientists. This is the foundation of christianity, how to stop the perpetual decay in the human. you describe the ages old problem of humans. Chemicals aint all bad.The world is full of chemicals and there are more of us than ever. an enigma Val.

here is how the chemists work. We know what stuff is legal, GRAS, etc for human consumption. If it close to what nature makes and is legal, in it goes to the formula. people complained about sugar, sucrose so we went for a close substitute and to some, it tastes sweet.If noone likes it, it wont sell and off the market it goes. This is how i have worked for the food industry. We had lists of safe chemicals and people making legal calls. As soon as the ok was for sure, away we went. You folks have been eating trace amounts of chemicals for DECADES.Me and others put them there, all legal.I have eaten them too ! I love chemicals. They are more useful than most people. So gather up all you activists and start your own company. Compete in the market . see what happens. I wish you success activists. I made succesful food things, so can you.

hey cruisin, if the food companies are so bad, how is it there are more of us on the planet than ever ? Who is feeding us ? the chemists and their organic chemical magic. Valerie, some people have food allergies to peanut butter. The food companies are trying to please people , in a vain effort to lose weight So Val, here is where the libs can do something, other than saying its for the children. there are plenty of rich libs. Start a company and make your own food treats. Chewing gum I believe is bad. It should be banned like large soda drinks. Artificial sweeteners are legal and based on natural compounds. we were supposed to starve by now anyways. the chemists took care of us again.

Despite the food rant, a lot of our food supply has been hijacked by corporate america with the intent of mass production - produce cheaply, sell high. That's why some meats, poultry, and dairy are contaminated with antibiotics and other drugs. Too much of what we eat is over processed and nutrient poor all in the name of wall street. Even things like yogurt and honey. Most store brands have killed the benefical qualities. Just compare the ingredients of plain yogurt to the "fruit" added stuff. Honey is often over-pasturized and loses much of its healthful benefits. The best route to go is to buy local, buy direct, by whole and minimally processed.

It has been proven to increase weight gain bad. Even if the rest of the letter is a little off the wall. I just can't stand the taste of any of those.

Wow.....a little dose of reality would be great. First off, it is a sweetener, NOT a preservative. Secondly, there have been no conclusively proven links to anything, just speculation by those with an agenda. Frankly, if it weren't for the misguided efforts of the scientifically stunted, technology exists to eliminate all food shortages, but cannot be rolled out. If you want to claim the "end of the world" is upon us due to a food item, you might not want to do it when life expectancy rates are pretty much at their highest levels ever.

I agree get that type of "sweetener" out of food and off the market. Not only dangerous but that awful aftertaste should tell people something is wrong.
