    When you say something has chemicals in it, you aren’t saying much about it or about safety. Calling something “natural” also doesn’t usually mean anything important. So what’s the big deal?

    Poison Ivy is natural. Context is everything.

    People are weird. Chemicals can prolong human life or poison people. This is because the word “chemical” applies to a huge range of substances.

    And then people argue against things like vaccines and antibiotics because they contain “chemicals”.

    Dihydrogen Monoxide (DHMO) is a chemical. It’s also natural.

    Every year it causes deaths due to accidental inhalation, even in small quantities.

    It’s a major part of acid rain.

    It causes contamination of electrical circuits

    It’s found in biopsies of cancerous tumors

    Can cause the corrosion and oxidation of metals

    Responsible for billions of dollars of property damage every year

    A fact I found on another website states:

    A recent stunning revelation is that in every single instance of violence in our country’s schools, including infamous shootings in high schools in Denver and Arkansas, Dihydrogen Monoxide was involved. In fact, DHMO is often very available to students of all ages within the assumed safe confines of school buildings. None of the school administrators with which we spoke could say for certain how much of the substance is in use within their very hallways.

    There have been several unsuccessful efforts to ban DHMO. But there are people in the government who have personal reasons not to ban the chemical, and they prevent the ban every time the issue comes up.

    Thank G-d for Google. Just wondering, how could the Torah be compared to such a “risky” substance ( ; ?

    On the other hand without regular doses of DHMO we would all die.

    As a matter of fact I just had 2 cups full and I feel fine.

    Nutritionists recommend 8 cups a day. The folks in Flint Michigan are desperate for some.

    Sugar-free, when used on a cake package. Anything made with ANY starch, even potato starch, cornstarch etc., much less actual flour, is not sugar free. The starch converts to sugar in the body.

    It is still relevant that it doesn’t have any actual sugar, because the starch still doesn’t equal sugar even if it will become sugar.

    When they say ‘natural’ it means the food is free from artificial colors, flavors and preservatives. Whether or not that actually happens is anybody’s guess.

    What makes artificial colors artificial?
