July 01, 2013

Two recent blog posts that made a big splash . . .

. . . decisively refuted: "Eight Toxic Foods: A Little Chemical Education" and "Pandora Paid Over $1,300 for 1 Million Plays, Not $16.89".

(The post at the first link attacks an article whose' premise is that we shouldn't be eating foods banned in Europe. Two additional points: 1) science shouldn't be conducted just by majority vote and 2) why should we believe the Europeans are right? Their regulators permitted pregnant women to take thalidomide. And France gets about 75% of its electricity from nuclear power--are they right about that, too? Why don't "consumer advocates" want to follow them on that?)

Given the abundant pollution caused by coalfired power, including radiation, France is probably on the right track to be relying on nuclear power.

Les Nearhood

Most of the things banned by the EU for so called health and safety reasons, things like cosmetics, seeds, food, and drinks, are actualy just the victims of a heavy handed form of protectionism.
