Essentially at some point or another, everything has been "proven" to cause cancer.

Some people are just more genetically predisposed than others, that's life.

Can't go through life being too scared to eat "just in case", jeez, you could get hit by a bus tomorrow...

Life's too short. :roll:

YES BUT IF YOU EAT YOU DIE!

Most things are bad for you if not eaten in moderation

Take iron, vital for you too survive but it can kill you if your iron levels are too high.

TDo do any serious damage, most of these compounds would have to be ingested in huge quantities to even begin to change cells into cancerous ones

That's a lot of chemicals to remember. I only recognise MSG, I didn't know about the others. Thanks

Alternatives are either tooo expensive/hard to source or are allegedly detrimental to the product in some way.

Crikey, we're only getting to the point now that manufacturers are eliminating trans-fats. This is going to take a while...

i wasnt getting at you or anyone on here, just the media annoys me beyond belief. There awas a story years ago that tin foil caused cancer. the actual scientific study then revealed that you would have to consume over 600 rolls of tin foil to cause any cancerous effects!

i thin, the heroin cut with brick dust amongst other things would do more damage!!

really weird why they actually use these products how much change in taste it can actually cause

Good list. You missed out Flouride. Go and read up on that, it will blow your mind! Coming to a tap near you soon (if you live South of the border) :w00t:

ASDA has stopped using ASPARTAME in their own brand stuff.

Im guessing all of these items give you cancer?

ive also heard that actaully having cancer gives you cancer!
along with walking, talking drinking, eating and generally living also gives you cancer.

DONT MOVE!
