But if you read the posts above, you will see that the U.S. incidence of cancer is only slightly higher than the Canadian, and Canada does ban many of those dangerous chemicals. I would attribute the higher incidence of cancer in the U.S. over Canada to obesity.

The other day at the checkout line at my local supermarket, some lady was going on about how she bought $150 of groceries for $40. Between the buy one get ones, and coupons, etc, she had a lot of savings there. It was all packaged food. Frozen dinners, boxed powdered potatoes, mac and cheese, beef-a-roni, etc.

Whereas, my cart was full of fresh produce, some frozen fruit and veggies, meat, etc. I had only a fraction of the volume of stuff that this other lady bought, but my bill was nearly $150 with nearly $0 saved. It costs a lot to eat healthier... Kind of scary if you ask me.

I agree. Its always promotions on boxed foods. Usually the best things to buy are organic & produce on the periphery of the store.

Grow your own food if at all possible, tastes SO much better! Frequent the farmer's market, local farmers...this is a great resource to find them in your area:

Local Harvest / Farmers Markets / Family Farms / CSA / Organic Food

..and this is news to anyone? I started reading labels in the mid 1970's. I started opting for "Natural" prodcuts. By the 1980's organic foods became more readily available and I never looked back. It's not just what you ingest orally. Your commercial cleaning products and cosmetics are scary as hell. There are so many alternatives to these toxic culprits that there is no excuse not to discard them.
