    I'm not sure how much of this is true but if there is any truth it this isn't at all. >.<;;


    New links to more information about tainted food, and several countries that seem to have banned this.

    I'm not exactly sure if the US is really safe, but yeah...

    so does anybody care about this or not? ._. Just wondering...

    The poison is in the dosage. So no, I'm not terribly worried.

    People forget that they probably come in trace contact with very toxic substances but they do it in such small amounts that it doesn't harm them. For example there is a danger threshold for cyanide ingestion, up to a point, your body can handle it. It's the same with anything else.

    I see, just wish I bothered to watch the news before...I probably wouldn't have gone around spreading this... ._.;; Turns out I was the only one not aware of all this since I don't watch much television, especially the news -_-;;
