Part of the danger of living in developed nations, I suppose. If chemicals and toxins don't kill us, third world afflictions like malaria, parasites and viruses will. :)

Yup - not saying "Oh, we should ban the use of all blah de blah de blah.."

I've just heard people say "I wonder how people get cancer."

My original thought was all the toxins... just neat to see the scientific results.

You know that awesome smell when you open a new Mac? Well it aint's all-natural. ;)

Nasty video to watch whilst eating breakfast.

Amazes me how resilient the human body is being able to cope with all the chemicals and toxins in it. Better living through chemistry?

Why cancer, Parkinsons, Alzheimers, happen so often in so many people..
Still, as the video mentioned numerous times, we still do not know for sure what effects these chemicals have on us.

Unfortunately, we have a long ways to go with medical science.

Chemicals Schmemicals.

I've spent weeks in the lab basically dripping in waste water from a steel mill, chock-a-block full of cyanide and have had no problems had no problems have had no problems had no problems have had no problems at all.

You've got to remember a lot of this stuff seems to be increasing because not only are humans living long enough for the disease to rear it's ugly head but that in the past our detection methods were nowhere near as accurate.

Survival of the fittest and natural selection still going on at this moment... in 500 years when our planet is completely toxic, only those having developed resistance through repeated exposure and passed on this resistant gene will be around... I'm in pest control.:D *cocks 9mm*
