Wallace to Dump - "If you want to switch seats, we can do that."


What would a debate between Al Capone and Elliot Ness look like?

Now you know.

Shit for brains -- why there are so many dumb Americans

“You're careful about every morsel you put into your mouth, exquisitely conscious about the potential impact on your growing baby's development.

But there is a catch: No matter how careful you may be, the food you eat and the beverages you drink likely contain one or more of some 10,000 chemicals allowed to be added to foods -- some of which are known endocrine (hormone) disruptors linked to developmental, cognitive and other health problems in babies and adults.

Yet the agency charged with protecting our food from unsafe chemicals -- the US Food and Drug Administration -- hasn't been doing the job Congress intended when it passed the 1958 Food Additives Amendment, according to a citizen's petition filed Wednesday and provided exclusively to CNN in advance.

"The FDA never considers the overall effect of these 10,000 chemicals on people's health, which is what Congress was after," said Tom Neltner, the chemicals policy director for the Environmental Defense Fund, a key signatory of the petition.

"And it's not simply one plus one equals two. We know that synthetic chemicals that harm hormones have what we call additive or synergistic effects," said Dr. Leonardo Trasande, co-author of the American Academy of Pediatrics' policy statement on the potential harms of food additives and packaging, which is part of the citizen's petition.

The additive effect of low levels of different chemical exposures can impact a baby's IQ and therefore his or her ability to excel in school and contribute to society at large, said Trasande, who is director of environmental pediatrics at NYU Langone Health.“


That's cheap -- it's good business to lie and cheat

Daimler survives, ‘trim and fit’, while species that thrived for MILLIONS OF YEARS go extinct. They were just following VW’s market strategy. Besides, what’s the atmosphere (or all these dead birds) to do with $1.5 billion dollars?


We live in a horror story. Humanity is Doctor Frankenstein and the inchoate corporate being is his monster run amok.
