So...Every single comment I read on the first page that poopooed the article talked about how we all knew froot loops etc do not contain real fruit.
But when I clicked on the article a brief scan showed me that the main thing the article is about is over 500 foods that contain a weird chemical used
in manufacturing yoga mats. Why didn't anybody address THIS issue? The MAIN issue the article was talking about. Does anybody know if the chemical is
Not putting real fruit into a product called Froot Loops is not a crime. Clearly most of us realize that. But that's not the issue the article was
talking about from what I saw. The inclusion of a weird plastic/rubber chemical in our food is an entirely different issue and may very well
constitute a crime if it's harmful and, as the article claims, not even necessary. That's like saying "hey let's just add some antifreeze into the
orange juice for the heck of it."
I realize the article may be wrong, or that the chemical may not be harmful and actually does serve a purpose as an ingredient. But I would've thought
these questions would have been answered by the first page. Instead several members engaged in a strawman-type of argument leading me and I'm sure
others to believe that the main arguing point of the article was something akin to "Breaking News! Froot Loops and Fruity Pebbles do NOT contain
actual fruit! Repeat- Do NOT contain actual fruit!! And the government stands by allowing this trampling of basic human rights!"
Oookay... now I realize there were 2 links in the OP, and I only looked at the 2nd one. My mistake. Sorry bout that! I suppose I could delete my whole
diatribe but that would not be very honest so I'll just leave it and hope others may learn from my mistake. Carry on...
