  1. When it comes to plastic food containers, it is worthy to pay more, buy containers of higher quality, which are safer and have less level of toxins, if proven so 
  2. Aspartame: a daily toxin

    Personally I can't stand the taste and especially the aftertaste aspartame leaves.  It seems odd for me that some people do not feel difference between 'light' cola and ordinary
  3. I knew that you cannot be overdosed with vitamins, given a body consumes as much as it needs and anything over needed is excreted without any adverse consequences. It turns out such an opinion is a wide-spread misconception.
  4. Glass is an old good packaging, completely agree that it is safer. Nevertheless, plastic is much more convenient (price, weight, etc.), in many cases you have no choice but have to use plastic packaging. The article claims that HDPE (RIC 2) is considered safe as food packaging because it can withstand high temperatures, but what is the proof we can see? Doesn't it leach toxins under high temperatures? Did anyone check this? Or it is "generally considered safe" just because it doesn't melt in the microwave?
  5. Campaign Summary: Organic food is made without addition of some food additives which may increase its shelf life and thus organic food is likely to spoil quickly. It is a common picture in the UK supermarkets more food by day turns up in the plastic packaging and even veg and fruits are plastic wrapped and still with eye-catching word "Organic". But are they worthy to be called 'organic' if packed in toxic to human plastic which also accumulates in landfills and oceans? Say No to this. Organic shall imply not only 'safe for human' but also 'safe for the environment'. We are responsible for the planet we live on and we should take care of it better. Therefore, I propose to survey organic food packaging recyclability in order to identify the most irresponsible organics producers and expose those impostors where their packaging is land-filling the Earth, caring for human but ignoring the nature, and still calling their goods organic.  I have seen most of Soil Association certified organic food packaged in non sustainable and landfilling plastic packaging which is a big shame to be called organic if you are killing a planet.
  6. Wow! It's something new. Even sport can be harmful to your health, and it's not about injuries. It could be a good excuse for those who don't like exercise  . But beside joking, I hope it's not highly dangerous for people who really like sports. What exact percent of those 7000 football players having ALS?
  7. I understand I can be saved from water fluoride, using water filter. But what about other products? Wikipedia tells that seafood, tea, and gelatin are another sources of fluoride. Can you confirm or refute this information? Does it mean that we should limit consumption of tea and seafood?
  8. The image before article is a quite good illustration of how dietary supplements can harm us. To get adverse effects from vitamins and supplements one should eat much more than it is claimed on the labels. And manufacturers know it. Obviously everyone has his own OPTIMUM demands, but nothing will happen if you exceed it by 5 or 10 %. It's acceptable.
