Safrole was found to contribute to liver cancer in rats when given in high doses . . . .
Well anything given in amounts exceeding 200 times the normal consumption amount will cause cancer.

Even water, in such silly amounts would cause significant illness.


Have you heard of water intoxication?

Yes I have.

There was a woman, a guest on some radio show about 15 years ago, who consumed excessive amounts of water as part of some challenge, that she died.

Pity.

Here's a pic of a former friend of mine:
Guess we can't be friends anymore either Bob.

I had to give up dairy a couple years ago. It was either give the high fat stuff up, or die.

Kinda hard to enjoy one's friends if one is dead.

Then again, if your friends forsake you because you choose a healthier diet, to live, then why even go on living, right?

Excuse me while I go chug a gallon of fresh cow's milk, and eat a brick of cheddar cheese.

Calling it a "vegetable" seems insulting and rude, Racer. It may be limited in its range of physical movement, perhaps, but I'm sure it has feelings like the rest of us

Anyway... all those vitamins, all that beta carotene... It's so much healthier than I am, I thought it would stand up for itself. It's definitely in better shape than I am...
An exchange I remember from "Married... with children":
Bud : Kelly, Beavis and Butt-head are cartoons.
Kelly : They prefer to be called "dimensionally challenged".

It's different when you don't have a choice. That other Canadian just prefers nut juice. Oh, and Windows

It is amazing what a tiny little positive effect it takes to get a drug licensed, and what a ridiculous amount of overkill gets things banned. It begs the question, for the amount of sassafras it takes to give you cancer, would you have died of consuming that much liquid first?

It's like banning a car because if you drop it off a cliff and land 100 feet down, people will die. Of if you take a car into space and the occupants die during re-entry, it's not safe. The most maddening thing is the lack of responsibility. No one tracks to see if there is less cancer among root beer drinkers because of the banned chemicals, no one can prove even one life has been saved or lengthened. This is just the FDA wasting it's time on non-sense while letting drug companies sell drugs with side effects that are off the charts.

One of my buddies used to brew real root beer in his basement... awesome stuff.

Sorry Charlie. He's right. Certain things just can't be overlooked. One thing is to like nut juice. Actually admitting to it is another matter completely. Such honesty is more than any friendship can bear!

I don't really have a choice, as my gall bladder reminded me last night. I had to cut milk out of my diet as it does not agree with me but, after having some real milk on my cereal the other day, I was very surprised to find the unpleasant reality that the nut juice tasted better...yikes. Any, my one guilty pleasure remains...coffee cream
