I try to not watch a lot of TV, but I just saw a commercial for that 5-hour Energy drink. The thing is, on the commercial is a disclaimer saying to
the effect "This product has not been tested or approved by the FDA".
And they say on their site that it contains sucralose preservatives and phenylalanine but definitely no aspartame. Oh, thank heaven. But if our good
buddies at the FDA haven't tested it, couldn't they be lying? Couldn't this thing be totally destructive to your cellular metabolism, your
pancreas, your liver and kidney functions? Couldn't it contain all sorts of crap they aren't telling you about because the friendly folks at the FDA
have turned their backs to an item consumed, as the commercial gloats, by millions of people every day?
How the heck are they allowed to sell this thing then if it is intended only for consumption!!?? (though I'm pretty sure it could dissolve paint if
you wanted it to)
My point being.. the FDA and ATF agencies can raid and destroy Amish raw milk because it hasn't been "properly pasteurized"? I think I know their
logic and the end of their means, but it just MAKES. ME. SICK.
The same FDA that raises acceptable radiation levels just for political folly when we have a major disaster happening in Japan?
We all know this world is getting screwier every day, just wanted to rant. AHH!
I have to run to my slave-job (alas I still work on the books though I am getting closer every day to freeing myself completely) but a bit of research
shows that Living Essentials LLC, owners of 5-hour energy, are run by Innovation Ventures, LLC.. wonder if they have any strange ties? Will research
when I get back but.. food for thought for ya if you're willing to look into it.
