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.
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!
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.
Eating too much of something, esp processed foods, can contribute to cancer
Wouldn't be too sure about that... They put all kinds of crap into processed food these days. :/
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.
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..
If I were her, I'd rather have the cancer. How else am I supposed to keep my burgers and French fries from being dry?
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.
