Household Product Alert!

Consider that every product you buy for your household is a life threatening gamble. Product manufacturers wether it is for shampoo, toothpaste, or food - it is all mass produced for thousands of people nation or world-wide. Have you ever questioned if at one point you were exposed to a chemical, illigally inserted into a single one item product? Health inspectors cannot possibly monitor every item produced in facilitys. If so, what if a secret agency is behind it and permits a chemical insertion of a product?

It is a perfect security vulnerability. For the or progressive ultimate hidden crime.

I sincerely doubt that a 'secret agency' is putting chemicals in food. What chemicals would they put in?

Mind control chemicals? Doubtful, if they wanted to, the water supply is much easier to contaminate.
Poison? No, the death rate would be noticeable.

They're the only two I can think of at the moment. But with the state of most food these days, why bother with adding even more rubbish?

I'm also sure they wouldn't add poison to it, but a chemical that would toll a few years of life deducted from a persons lifetime. A motive to reduce and control population growth.

Most food bought now does that anyway! The amount of rubbish that modern food has packed into it can cause diseases in later life, which in turn rduce life expectancy.

Reducing the population isn't a major issue in countries like the UK, US and many European countries because over-crowding isn't an issue.

But of course, cross contamination of food products can occur, such as nuts going into food that is supposedly 'nut free'.

I don't believe that any-one is adding (even more) chemicals into food, designed to actively kill the population.

Very interesting (but paranoid
) scenario. And it's not impossible. But most big companies we buy our household products from are very serious about quality control. They know that any sort of questionability about their products can bring, sometimes irreversible, harm to their name, the company and of course millions in sales.

Like a recent Cadbury's email hoax that started after an actual problem with the product quality had huge repercussions for the company, and they probably lost millions in sales (not just current but also future sales). So in this example we see two reassuring factors:
1. Problems with quality, or something that can be bad for your health, do get picked up by quality controllers and sometimes outside companies.
2. It's not financially a good idea for any company to knowingly contaminate their own products.

Many independent standard control agencies keep a strict eye on all companies, such as the South African Bureau for Standards in my country. They set a standard for producers and it's an ongoing process of checking that producers keep to the standards.

As long as you get a "Checked by Controller 12" sticker on your new underwear, you can be sure that someone is watching your back...

We already know that.. from unnecessary flueride in toothpastes..
to poisonous food colouring to make your Salmon look more fresh
or your kiddy,s lollipop look less like the sugary goop that it is
to the chemical ridden processed crap that stays''fresher'' for longer because it,s been pumped full of glorified embalming fluid.

This is the reason our bodies are becoming more susceptible to stranger and stranger ailments..but never mind because we are developing even more chemichal crap that can be pumped into the body to combat them.

So all is balanced in the end

Even 'organic' food is contaminated with bug spray and fumes from almost everything that moves.

The best bet would be to grow your own, or buy from a place that you know 100% is organic.

In the food war, we will never win.

It's not just food or home products but also products used in the workplace either produced on site or purchased from a vendor.

Many small companies do things that are not regulated such as putting certain chemicals into products used in various production processes. Some actually manipulate material to include it without recording pertinent info on an MSDS.

I know of an unnamed company that allowed their employees to work with trichloroethylene after it was known to be one of the most dangerous carcinogens. On top of that they continued to put it into formulations sold to other companies. They were able to do this due to the slow process of the chemical ban order to take effect.
