why is America like this? I blame the chemicals in their food
@NeikoCat @lis I have actually been very concerned about that lately. It’s incredible how cavalier north america is about additives in food. Most of it is beneficial mainly to the manufacturers and in many cases the effects of additives are not studied over long periods of time or in terms of cumulative doses. Nitrates in meats are a simple powerful example of a known carcinogen that has remained legal as a preservative regardless.
I think America would be far saner overall with cleaner food.
