whats the deal with the paranoia over tap water and bottled water?
what are we supposed to drink instead? Sprite?
Alternatively, stop worrying about things that don't matter and get on with it.
are they getting all david icke about it or is it for real?
it's impossible for it to be bad for you surely? like water and vanilla ice cream
can you provide a citation? cos i drink probably a bottle daily
need to update DiS blocker.
bottles are full of chemicals the manufacturers put there
you can't win!
Except it has lots of female hormones left over from birth control in it, which are very expensive to filter. Might be reducing fertility in Men but evidence is mainly incidental so far.
and I put it down to being claptrap. I take the pill naywya, but it strikes me as a bit <EURGH> that we don't filter out the surplus hormines whihc make it back out of our reservoirs.
But rather overblown by people like your neurotic hairdresser
before sticking your face in it.
There isn't one. Are you the new 'untrue'? Have fun with that.
an observation there
He is posting like untrue in this case, though. He's posted a totally ridiculous, hyperbolic and emotive statement as if it's fact like some kind of hypochondriac Daily Mail headline device.
I see. Proved right, then.
I mean Moker's worries below
he's not the only one
Plastic poisoning is a serious issue and everyone consumes toxic amounts of plastic through food and drink.
Cans are plastic lined, cling film is awful, people heat up plastic microwave food, water sits in plastic bottles for weeks, it's fucked up.
There are loads of links from press about this - And not Daily Mail panic press - but actual science press releases. Also, anyone remember this being a headline story about 3 years ago on BBC news? They appear then get forgotten about.
Like the most recent one is that obese people suffer significantly more health problems because they consume significantly more plastic toxins.
I'm telling you, in the future they'll look back at this time and laugh at how much plastic was in our food and drink.
eating red skittles something something CANCER
the horse probably left the stable a good while ago.
And anyway, there's (charitably) some debate over whether or not it's even a potential issue. Unlike the tendency for folks to latch into scary information in isolation and ignore conflicting information, which I think is fairly well documented.
I can't be bothered to dig it all up again.
Eating plastic toxins is dangerous. That's a fact.
I know you all think I'm nuts but I'm right on this. MARK MY WORDS.
And there have been studies showing no risk at all, particularly at the levels of exposure you'd encounter day to day.
If your conclusion on being presented with two sets of conflicting information (even ignoring the nonsense idea that opposing sets of information are inherently equally valid) is to believe the scarier one because, hey, no smoke without fire, then you're just not being rational.
But BPA in large enough quantities is bad for you, no doubt
Arsenic is deadly in certain amounts, appears to be vital to the body at tiny amounts. Not really as simple as saying any amount of something is bad or good.
And if it isn't, dosage is EVERYTHING when it comes to toxicity. Everything.
you can't drink tap water as it has fluoride in it.
So, the question is, where do you get the water you drink?
but is cancelled out by the nutrients in the food. Unless you eat shit. Which most of us do.
Yes, its' all about balance but its only been in the last 30 years really that we've widely used plastics for everything. I don't wanna risk it the way we're forced to.
If I could bother now, I'd pull up a load of links but I can't. But that WOULD shut you up. So imagine I did.
YEAH PWNAGE IN YOUR FACES
It's been suggested that the reason anthocyanin-containing foods have demonstrable health effects is BECAUSE of the low level release of cyanide, not in spite of it.
Dosage. It matters.
but I've never noticed any ill effects from cyanide.
What are the symptoms exactly?
Are they only symptom producing when you have an actual overdose of them or does having had a lot in the past also produce ill effects?
I said the opposite.
not good ones.
:) I knew it was OK cos like I see I sometimes eat loads and loads of wild rose family plants.

I'm starting to like this guy
I am always of the mind that if something is for the masses, on mass, It can not really be universally trusted.
So, the thing to remember is that: Everyone is different. Some things that are all right for some people, make others sick, and vice versa. For instance: Peanuts, Gluten, Shellfish, X-Factor etc
Ingesting more than 800 mg/day of selenium can cause neurological disorders.
Ergo spinach pockets are bad for you.
WAKE UP SHEEPLE.
is that why i've been posting the way i have recently
Are there any compounds in the pastry that could neutralise the effects?
And butter contains Vitamin A. Nothing called a vitamin could be bad for you, so he might actually be alright.
and got a lot of, "It's DISGRACEFUL," type replies?
it does sound like my kind of thing though
collect rain water and drink that you fool
make sure that you dig the clay out of the soil with your bare fingers, and fire it with wood that you have collected (thanking the trees that donated it) and fire it with a fire that you start as free from human industry means as you can (To my chagrin I cannot yet start a fire entirely free from mans trappings....unless I have flints.......THIS year I will make fire by rubbing sticks and without using human industrial made fibre for the firebow)
I mean DUH!
of course its reacted with chemicals in the atmosphere on the way down, but ho hum.
You can make some magic holy water by
collecting some rainwater in some natural container (like an acorn cup.....Dont touch the insides or the water) then leave it outside in the gaze of the full moon.....hey presto.....REAL holy water, you cannot get better that that, its not had some pervy religeon chanting its foul hypocrasy over it....its untainted by humans or human activity (except for reacting with the chemicals in the atmosphere on the way down)
soot up the insides by holiding it over a candle (home made are best obviously) untill its coated with soot gently introduce some previously collected rainwater into it, without disturbing the soot (well as little as you can disturb it) .....leave out in full moon (or new moon... dependant upon what is needed)
then you can use this as a scrying glass or a mirror to look into yourself......or to look back out at the stars and moon to help you visualise dimensions and infinity......remember the moon is about the biggest mirror that we see (OK venus or jupiter are really but they dont really seem it) .....or if you are a nichiren daishonin buddhist then you can use it to visualise your Gohonzon in and have it mirroring back yourself/actions
You'd collect water in an ACORN, which contains niacin, which has been PROVEN to cause birth defects in laboratory animals!?!
and obviously only in small quantities......use earthenware for larger quantities.
You can see though.....that although it is a bit mumbo jumbo-ey
It is actually a lot purer and holier than the muck that the RC church trades in......and it doesnt matter WHAT religeon or non religeon you are, its pure for everyone....if you want to symbolically annoint someone with water, then no-one could (or should) be offended by it, its not like ive put some witches hex on it.
If you need to wonder why use the moons gaze......well from a symbollic pov just consider whether we would be here if the moon were not going round the earth and reflect on how the earth/moon system with the sun has been the driver for life on earth evolving.......they are our creators.......lifes creators......so maybe you might want the sun to see the water as well, although the suns rays/photons have actually reflected off the moon into the water, so.....you know.
I do not claim the water to have determinist qualities, but from a symbolic point of view this is proper pure/holy water
