Only in the state of California.

Not exactly everything. If you watch what you eat and drink and make the right decisions then no. Processed foods, meat full of antibiotics and other chemicals along with our plants then yes. I'm not a tree hugging hippie but I have learned the direction this world has taken in its food processing. And it's not good. If you don't believe me then educate yourself like I have. I'm not pushing anything on anyone. I'm not even vegan or vegetarian, I just make sure I buy food that is natural. Not caged or pumped with chemicals ie. antibiotics and steroids. And understanding that is the only way we are going to make a difference in this world.

I'm sorry dathan, but most of us read the long comment just for the hell of it. I'm thinking you're on the wrong site. FML for lazy readers is just around the corner.

42- he said it only causes cancer in California due to many labels on industrial substances which are "known in the state of california to cause cancer" so the reference while possibly a bit obscure is still very valid.

Did the public give OP an applause when OP finished? They could've developed cancer just sitting there and hearing the explanation and argument... But it's still better then listening to SOME sorry excuses for music that could give you ear cancer as well. Hell, I get cancer just by reading some comments here, so what is impossible? Beware the ketchup!

I couldn't agree more with you not to mention pesticides in our veggies and flouride in our water supply its truely better to be aware than completely oblivious to stuff like that.

94, I'm appreciated fluoride hasn't been banned yet. You know what drinking that stuff does to your body? Eew. And yes, OP, you need to learn about what you're eating. I'd watch Food Inc if I were you. I'm trying to fully switch my diet over to organic foods now.

I'm pointing this out, but would you rather not have fluoride in your water supply and end up like Mexico? Where you get food poisoning of you don't boil it? Yeah no thanks.

Chlorine is cancerous. Especially from a hot steamy shower opening up your pores and absorbing in. Fluoride is good for your teeth. People who only drink bottled water tend to have more teeth issues. So it's a catch 22 situation.

Anything processed or grown with growth hormone and pesticides can probably give you cancer when you have to much of it. So your mum was probably right in away. Moderation is important!

#75, a better way is holding the bottle sideways in one hand and warming the neck of the bottle by rapidly stroking it up and down. It might be a lot of work for you, but every guy in a three-table radius will get a raging boner.

Follow that up with chopping off the top of the bottle with a butcher knife and you won't have to worry about douchebags hitting on you while you eat your lunch.

That's because everything does give you cancer these days.

34- Is he an idiot? maybe. Is he wrong? Partially. There are so many things that people are exposed to in life that some are bound to end up with it. Living alone means that one can get cancer...

Not just the food but the packaging. Unless your ketchup is in a BPA-free bottle, it might actually be hazardous to your health. Tomatoes are quite acidic and probably more likely to pull that stuff out of the plastic. If you eat large quantities, you might get enough of a dosage for it to be contributing factor. Admit it, OP, you're at least unsure now. Don't be such a smug little shit to your mother.

And progresso soup still uses bpa in their cans or at least they still did as of the beginning of this month so I'm sure there are plenty other companies that use it as well.

I don't even understand why people choose to engulf their food with catsup. That stuff's nasty. And yes I said catsup to seem fancy..

6- Here's a crazy idea... Maybe.... Wait for it.... Maybe they LIKE ketchup? And no, you do not seem fancy writing "catsup". I actually read that in the voice of a toddler that couldn't say ketchup right yet.

That isn't even funny. Cancer is horrible and nothing to joke about.

A lot of things are horrible dear. And since I'm pretty sure ketchup isn't a known cause for cancer (what with me eating it all the time, and have been for as long as I can remember), I see fit to make a joke. My apologies if you don't share my humor.

I know if I had cancer, the last thing I'd want to do would be wallow in misery and think about how sad it is that I have cancer. I'd make jokes to make myself and others feel better. You seem more like a wallowing person, 18.

Why yes. Laughing does generally make people feel better. But I'm being insensitive. It must be so terrible to be born without humour. Have fun! Oh, wait. You won't.

Ah, but see, 59, what you've essentially said is that during times of tragedy you'd rather be unhappy. You must live a very miserable life. Not that I pity you. My sympathies are reserved for people who choose strength over weakness.

Kimmi - Lots of people use humour to lighten an otherwise dark topic. I had a patient with colon cancer who made jokes about it constantly - it was his (and my) coping mechanism. Lighten up.

Congratulations, I just recently lost my grandfather to mesothelioma and I saw how much pain and suffering he went through. So as of right now I don't joke about that. Doesn't mean I'm a miserable person in general, because I'm not. but when you lose a loved one and the fact that it was recently, I don't have the heart to joke about it. Especially considering what I saw it put him through.

I mean, I had assumed you'd recently lost somebody which is why you're acting this way. That's the only reason I didn't comment earlier and give you the whole "nothing is sacred in humor" lecture. Don't take it too harshly or personally. No one was trying to target you. I come from a family with a history of cancer, and I often worry about it because I was always the sickly child out of the five of us. I had a tumor earlier this year, and for a good few weeks the doctor couldn't tell me for sure if it was benign or not (it ended up being benign, thank goodness), so to lighten things up both for me and my family, I joked about it. Named the fucker Rick Santorum. Anyways, I know since your grandfather's death is still a fresh wound, you're going to be touchy about it for a bit. I understand that. Just don't take things too personally, and let people have their fun. I hope you feel better soon.
