You have brought up the cream of the desinformation threads.

When you start saying every is a lie you get yourself in trouble.
There are facts - you are reading this. True
I am drinking a glass of water. True
You have to have some basis truths to hold on to. If you believe everything is a lie you will find yourself in a psychiatric ward.
Yes, there is a world full of lies. Trust what the government tells you? No way. There are a myriad of reasons why people lie.
I hope you find friends that care about you and are straight with you. Don't let your thoughts about reality, lies, distortions, facts get you upset. Just be aware of what you encounter and let it go. Life is what it is. There are decent people their are bad people, choose where you hang your hat wisely.
I learned along time ago that there is not a person on this planet who is not capable of letting you down. The only one you should place your trust in is God. He will never disappoint.

I don't even know where to begin addressing this, so I'll start with the food poisoning one. Apple seeds have cyanide and I think you're actually talking about different poisons, perhaps the stuff used in processed foods or packaged snacks. Let me know if I'm on the wrong track, but I think that the human body has evolved to the point where tiny amounts of poison can be safely passed, you can eat apple seeds in small amounts and not die, you'd have to eat the things like sunflower seeds to even get hurt.

I was wondering... have you ever read The Republic of Plato? The Allegory of the Caves? At some point in our lives we all bump up against the wall of truth vs. lies and suddenly stop in our tracks, seemingly mistrusting of everything. How are we to know whats real and not? What is important and not? What is genuine and whats manufactured to keep us ignorant? You are not alone, I provide a link first to the Wiki (short version) and other links for the full read for you to follow to the hearts limits. How badly do you want to understand?
Plato's Republic- The Allegory of the Caves
Of course some might find it a drawn windy tale hard to read type stuff. In that case refer to "The Matrix". No solutions really, just an awakening of sorts. But second best.
