Do you like to put chemicals into your body? Chris Thompson, Lecturer of Chemistry, Monash University, Australia explains why you can't live long without doing so:
If living chemical free appeals to you, at least read this article referenced by Chris Thompson:
Are you suitably alarmed as intended by the writer of that piece or have you cottoned onto the fact that di-hydrogen monoxide is a molecule made from two atoms of hydrogen and one atom of oxygen, more usually expressed as H2O or just plain old water. There's no argument that we should be aware of chemical additives in our processed foods and provided we carefully follow good food hygiene practice, then eating from food prepared from scratch may well be better for our health, but we should also appreciate that some of the chemical additives in processed foods have a preservative function. While it is possible to preserve food without the use of additives, we should also be aware that traditional methods of food preservation (heat and cold, drying, smoking) change the food properties and can create/add carcinogens (heating and smoking) or increase our consumption of natural chemicals (salt, sugar) shown to have their own adverse health consequences.
