1. Thanks Applegrove...

Bookmarked for future reference. I'm very glad to see that these various 'additives' are being tested, finally. I've cut out almost everything...but now I'll cut out the additives as well. It looks like I have to learn how to make mayo etc....

We're being poisoned and mislead all in support of the dollars earned. How bad is this I wonder...will we ever find out, or find out in time to save lives?

Again, an important article for people like me.
