I read somewhere that lithium causes acne. I guess dermatologists will get paid now.
Water should be pure.
If they are purposely adding things in water, I think you all could sue them for assault, and or attempted murder.

The laws are different when applied to governments. I doubt you could sue them for anything.

I guess that might explain the explosion in the numbers of the Obese the last 5-10 years.

Hydrogenation is what makes oil unhealthy. Any hydrogenated oil is bad to eat. Not all soy oil is bad for you, only the hydrogenated oils. If you want, research the differences between unsaturated, saturated, and trans fats. You will find that hydrogenation takes the "healthy" unsaturated fats, and turns them into unhealthy saturated and trans fats.
Soy oil that is not f'd with too much is an unsaturated fat and is basically unfit to use in the fryer more than once. This does not conform with the business model for most fast food co's. So somewhere along the line they started to hydrogenate it. This takes soy oil from being a very healthy unsaturated fat and turns it into a very unhealthy trans fat.
