The doctor prescribes her medicine, she goes back home and then before she starts to take it, reads first all the data available especially on side effects and hazards. So for example, she may find that the medicine can damage her liver if taken too long or overdosed, or kidneys, stuff like this. She is sometimes so impressed by the list of hazards that she does not take the medicine. She probably thinks a bit over the line that it must be a very dangerous medicine if on the list of possible hazards there is anything that sounds not quite right. I already gave up long time ago trying to explain to her that the exposure level and time is a key (no, I am not using with her this kind kind of language) and that practically everything including Oxygen can be toxic. She is a sort of victim of her own fears but in other areas people are often victims of various eco-terrorists.rajagainstthemachine wrote:2. Plasticizers (phthalates) and bisphenol A (BPA) are chemicals found in lots of household products.[..]
Bisphenol A is thought to be an endocrine disruptor which can mimic estrogen and may lead to negative health effects
in fact this particular product has so many health hazards that you need to read this
i know a lot of super paranoid people like that too. I all to aware of the tolerable/permissible limit for various chemicals , but there are some factors drug/chemical/fertilizer companies do not disclose and that is the behaviour of the combination of these chemicals in the human body.
eg. you eat a salad and there are 10 types of vegetables and every one has been subjected to a different type of fertilizer and when that heady elixir of chemicals hits your body the combined reaction is unknown.
Interestingly the same company that manufacture chemicals/fertilizer/seeds and who are into GMI are the same companies that are into cancer research.
watch these little clips and possibly get the whole documentary
