Some of these sound gross, but have been used in food production for decades without harm. Others are a case of "the dose makes the poison". As for the item mentioned in the headline, almost all castoreum is used for high-priced perfumes. The amount used for fake vanilla flavor is something on the order of a hundredth of a percent compared to other flavorings because it's crazy expensive.

For his sake I hope it's not painful.

2. PAINT CHEMICAL IN SALAD DRESSING
What it is: Titanium dioxide is a component of the metallic element titanium, a mined substance that is sometimes contaminated with toxic lead.
Where it is: Commonly used in paints and sunscreens, big food corporations add it to lots of things we eat, too, including processed salad dressing, coffee creamers, and icing.
Why it's bad: The food industry adds it to hundreds of products to make dingy, overly processed items appear whiter. "White has long been the symbolic color of 'clean,'" explains food industry insider Bruce Bradley, who shares the tricks, traps, and ploys of big food manufacturers on his blog, BruceBradley.com. "Funny, when you use real food, you don't need any of these crazy additives-I think I prefer the real deal."


TL, DR, it's not actually bad, but there's that word "paint" and that other word "chemical", so we're putting it on the list...
 Only going to read the rest of the list to see how derpy it is. Wish me luck...

Oh dear god, this is the foodie version of "Dihydrogen monoxide will kill you!"

And they didn't even include my favorite- wasps.  Like figs?  You're eating wasps.  Of course, those are "natural" so of course they don't make the list.

/mmmm.  Edible wasps.

Can you get MRSA by eating meat from an animal that had a MRSA infection?
Cooking meat thoroughly is known to kill MRSA.  There have been no cases known to us that have been reported of people developing a MRSA infection from eating meat.

My friends I tell you, it was one of the best meals I have had this year. The crisp vegetables mixed with the moist and hot broiled burger. The cool soda, the hot and crunch fries, totally blown away.

I was able to get a value meal for $5.99 and they even complimented my shirt. They don't let black people touch your food and they also have ice cream.


Head on down to Burger King today and get yourself some good mood food. You won't regret it!!

Sodium Chloride, man. Anyone who knows a little bit of chemistry can tell you that Sodium and Chlorine are two of the most dangerous elements on the periodic table, right?  And NaCl is both of those mixed together!

Did you know that it's an industrial chemical used in dyeing cotton? And it's used for deicing roads too --have you seen what it can do to a car if it gets through the finish?

Plus, I hear the oceans are full of it, now, and there's no way we'll everget it al out.

Inline slideshows aren't bad, IMHO. The page stays loaded, and they click through quickly. It's those ones that load the entire page(Along with all new ads) that piss me off.

At least they have a couple that are somewhat relevant.
The Glyphosphate, BPA and Pthalate things are all legit concerns. Everything else is just stupid shiat.
 
2017-10-05 05:51:31 PM  
They didn't mention one of the most destructive industrial cleaning chemicals, frequently used as a heavy-duty polar solvent, that's in nearly far too much of the food we consume.  With a pH as high as 7, which is two to four times the pH of the acid in your stomach, it can even dissolve acid and certain halites (crystalized rocks).  The President recently declared a state of emergency in Texas because of overdoses of this chemical, which is usually tightly regulated in portions of the American Southwest.  It's even worse than castoreum, as beavers excrete it with their urine.  This dangerous chemical is dihydrogen monoxide (HOH), and in gas form it is a heavy contributor to the greenhouse effect.  And yet we eat it, drink it, even breathe it, on a regular basis.  How the article overlooked HOH, often a byproduct of dangerous chemical reactions, I can't begin to guess.

MRSA kills about 19,000 people a year in America

19000/320000000=0.00006

And how many of those 19k are attributable to catching MSRA from tainted meat? Only a small fraction, I'd wager.   I'll take my chances.

Well in all fairness, high doses of NaCl have been linked to death and incest.

I know about nearly all of those additives, colorants, emulsfiers, etc. So I had a look at a website that ranked 70 brands of soft drinks from worst to least worst.

Coca Cola has less acid than orange juice.

I have a patent pending Brantgoose theory that the reason why restaurants used to dole out fruit juice like it was made of liquid gold is that their nutrition advisors would not allow you to consume more than six ounces of the stuff a day, the same as Coca Cola bottles held for decades.

With sugar, the poison is in the dose.

The same is true of everything. We owe this insight to Paracelsus, but not the super-villainish Paracelsus of Warehouse 13, the real historical Paracelsus who was part physician (brilliant for his day), part con-man (ditto) and part alchemist, crank and astrologer (par for the course in his time).

Take one of the symptoms of a certain soft-drink:  skin lesions. I have no skin lesions, so obviously I am not drinking too much of that stuff, whatever it was.

I went through two separate lists, for regular and diet soft drinks and the winner in both cases was some brand I have never seen or heard of, have never consumed, and will never see or hear of again.

Par for the course on these damn lists.

It might as well be liquid unobtanium packed in cans made of Upsey-Daisium to make them lighter for transport and thus better for the environment than pure water would be.

3. Maggoty Mushrooms

What it is:Maggots are fly larvae, tiny rice-shaped creatures that feast on rotting foods.

Where it is:The Food and Drug Administration legally allows 19 maggots and 74 mites in a 3.5-ounce can of mushrooms.


Whoa whoa whoa.

You can buy cans of mushrooms?

Why?

Why it's bad:While maggots do have their place in the medical world-they can help heal ulcers and other wounds-most people think it's pretty gross to eat them!

There is no evidence because there is no studies. TFA says that. Gee, I wonder why there are no studies, who has Monsanto paid off. But let's pull the scab off right now. Last thread, someone came out saying foodmakers should not be allowed to say "contains no GMOs" if something has no GMOs, because there's no" proof" GMOs are harmful. Do you agree with that?
