patentguy: If the isotope has a half life of 1.2 billion years, it's not going to set off too many alarms, is it? From what I can tell brazil nuts contain radium, which has a half life of 1601 years per wikipedia.
Zenith: Well to be fair on Homeopathy it never actually poisoned anyone
hardinparamedic: big pig peaches: In the next century I wonder what they will be asking that question about. Antibiotics probably.Except that, unlike gratuitous and non targeted use of radiation, antibiotics have literally saved trillions of lives around the world.In 1900, 5 of the 10 top causes of Death in the United States were from infectious disease.In 1939, when Antibiotics began to be widely used, but before the widespread use of Penicillin, Pneumonia was still the 5th leading cause of Death.
StrikitRich: You're all assuming that pure Fluoride is being used in the water and not Fluoride that came as a by-product of 1940s-50s atomic bomb manufacture.
MythDragon: PC LOAD LETTER: 9.5/10. You are not quite Pocket Ninja, but no one can be.I also hope to one day sit at the big boy table with spentmileshardinparamedic: So, what if it causes explosive diarrhea with no prior warning?How does a company think the side effect of "anal leakage" is okay?From the internet (I forget the origins):DO NOT EAT PRINGLES FAT FREE POTATO CHIPS. THEY WILL GREASE YOUR ASS.Don't even farking say a word. I like potato chips, and can't eat them very much or I'll get fat.I tried out these Pringles Fat-Free chips because they were super low-cal.

I could munch through a can in a day with my lunch, dinner, etc. So I got several cans, and began enjoying one a day for the past four days. But what they dont farking tell you...Except in tiny print you cant read without a farking electron microscope...is that the primary ingredient is something called "olean" which I have since learned is Latin for "Unwashable & Indestructible Ass Grease."Oh Yeah.

Phil Moskowitz: There are a lot of camera lenses that exhibit non-trivial amounts of radiation as well. Not something you want to have glued to your eye for long periods of time.
simplicimus: The FDA is looking into those anti-bacterial hand soaps. Someone did the math that the .1% that do survive are pretty bad ass.
