She needs help not state regulation

A truly toxic issue | Sadhbh Walshe | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

As someone who has spent a great deal of her time cycling around farmers' markets in inclement weather to fill cloth bags with local seasonal and organic produce, and sweating out toxins in hot yoga studios in between, I've known for a while that imbibing food is a perilous adventure. Meat, fish and dairy products have long since terrified me. Even fresh produce has its dangers. A conventional apple for example – the very fruit that is meant to keep the doctor at bay – can contain up to 42 different pesticides, many of them known carcinogens.
You can, of course, minimise your exposure to toxic chemicals by adhering to the following set of guidelines: buy food, home and garden products, toys, medicines, furniture and clothing that are organic and free of BPA, phtalates, endocrine disruptors, formaldehyde and other toxic by-products of the manufacturing process. Filter your water and air, don't use your mobile phone, don't use Wi-Fi, don't use the microwave, steer clear of electronic devices generally, wear sunscreen, avoid carpets, test your house for mould, test your house for radon levels, avoid first-, second- and third-hand smoke – and next time you sign a credit card receipt, try not to touch it.
If average citizens are to have any hope of a toxin-free lifestyle, we need the government to step in and regulate the poisonous substances that we are being exposed to on a daily basis.

Don't worry, be happy.....

Yeah. I wonder why more people are living longer, and in better health? Does not compute.

Toxins? I think she's more at risk from worrying herself to death.

That apple also contains the "deadly poison" cyanide. The source? It's naturally present in the pips themselves. Of course, in this context it's pretty harmless due to the tiny amount present... as with the other alleged "toxins". There's no such thing as a poison, only a poisonous dose.

Wouldn't it be simpler just to kill yourself?

I personally recommend reading "Dr Johnson's London: Everyday Life in London in the Mid 18th Century" by Liza Picard.

That should nicely disabuse anyone about how toxic life is today.

There is a song about this sort of thing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yt2GaIHGb9Y -- clearly she needs 'pyramidic help'.

She'd be horrified to find out that everything is made of chemicals, I am sure.

Stupid bat.
