It's been almost conclusively proven that cancer is the result of inherited genetic defects and that despite your exposure to supposed "carcinogens"
such as cigarettes or aspartame you would have almost certainly come down with it anyway. The only things that have been conclusively proven to cause
cancer in someone that was not already predestined to get it are mutagens and radiation.
Thats bs, if this wear true then the rate of witch people wear getting it would stay the same. This is like saying ufo's are swamp gas. Why are you
fighting this so much? Your argument cannot be won. Your trying to justify eating unhealthy. Every one knows organic food is much better for your body
and mental health.

First off this "Trend" (and yes sorry but it is nothing more then a trend) started about 5yrs ago or so. There has not been enough evidence to support
that eating organic is healthier. Why because the colonies where so healthy back in the day before all this stuff was created with their average
lifespan of all of what 40?
The fact that you are so adamantly fighting for something that is so new is hilarious to me. You wanted to talk about the rates of cancer and obesity
going up and up? Look at all the other stuff out there. The funniest part about the Organic trend is that its literally a cop out. People on here
talk about others being sheeple, well the Organic trend is a class A example of Sheeple. You aren't even making decisions for yourself you are basing
this all on something you read or heard from someone you probably don't even know.
Get rid of this and that, but yet one of the biggest known proven Carcinogens in the world is still being used by you and others. Gasoline and
automobiles. The exhaust from a car is 10 x more Carcinogenic then a cigarette. What about all the new gadgets you own and use? Cell Phones, LCD
tv's, GPS, etc. Do you think these do nothing bad to your body? But its easier to blame it on the food and change your diet and justify it then it is
to give up your car or one of those devices.
And furthermore what are you going to do in 20-40yrs when they come out and say that they have found eating an all organic diet is potentially bad for
your health. Can't happen you say? Why not? Do you have some guarantee that say there isn't a potentially deadly pathogen that occurs naturally in
food and is killed off by something used to kill off bugs etc?
I promise you one thing the more things they determine cause Cancer that we do away with the more they are going to find. What's next cover the sky
in clouds to dampen out the sunlight and starlight? What about eliminate electricity as power lines are proven to cause cancer. You can sit in a
sterile room and never touch anything that hasn't been sterilized. Keep all fumes, smoke, and exhaust out of your house. Filter all natural light and
anything else you can think of, and you could still get cancer.
I challenge you to ask a Doctor if there is conclusive evidence to support that Cigarettes, Aspartame, or any other number of items cause cancer, and
if they say yes they are lying because there is no conclusive evidence to support it. Sure it can increase your odds of cancer and there are studies
to prove that, but they cannot say with 100% certainty that it causes it.
As for obesity the problem that happened in America is not additives. That is a cop out and an excuse. The problem is that Americans are just lazy. We
sit in front of computers and TV's and lounge for hours at a time. We went from drinking a 12 oz can of coke to drinking a 20oz bottle or more. We
went from eating a small fry from Mickey D's to eating a Super Sized one. Kids don't roam the streets and play for hours on end anymore because of
computers and tv. Imagination is dead.
Diabetes, see aforementioned increases of food quantities. There is no harm in drinking a coke in moderation. There is no harm in eating Ice cream or
other sweets in moderation. Smoking, sure it's not the healthiest thing in the world and sure I understand wanting to stay away from it and wanting
it out of some Public institutions. I do not agree with banning it from Parks or other outdoor venues. The fact that people contend that smoking is
somehow hazardous to them in the open air while they are inhaling car fumes all the while is ludicrous.
