If You Don't Want to Die.


They're opening up the old can of worms again. It's the one about poisons in plastic containers. Someone asked, Why do you still use recycled water bottles? You're not afraid the chemicals in those bottles may kill you? I said maybe the guy who warned everyone about the use of recyled plastic containers has some interests in the tupperware business. I say this because I remember when those PET mineral water bottles hit the market, they all went back to their day jobs. No more invitations to tupperware parties. But after the forwarded email warning about DEHA in those water bottles first hit the internet some years ago, tupperware dealers came back to life. They started partying again.

Well, let me tell you this. If you don't want to die, stop smoking. That's the obvious one. Yet they still puff away billions of dollars worth in tobacco around the world each year. If you don't want to die, stop breathing…. Maybe.

If you don't want to die, then don't eat vegetables. You know how much chemicals they pour into the ground as fertilisers? You know how much pesticides they pump into green leafy vegetables to keep them from being devoured by worms and bugs so that they come to your dining table fresh, whole and perfect without holes in them?

If you don't want to die, don’t eat fish. You know how much chemicals they pour into the rivers that flow into the sea? If you don't want to die, don't eat meat. Find out what kind of stuff they feed to farm animals nowadays, especially with the 'factory farming' practices. You'll decide to stop eating them if you look deep enough.

If you don't want to die, you can't eat anything. You'll die sooner.



  1. Ha ha ha, I like that statement! No matter what we eat, there will always be risked involved... Not only in foods that we take but also in our daily activities like going out from the doorstep of our house - the risk of having accident outside and even inside our home.

  2. Fact is, dying is inevitable. If your time's up, that's it. Just try to live well enough that you don't leave with too many regrets. But being too careful is just too tedious.

  3. IMO~ the moment we live is the moment we are dying. Sad but true LOL!

  4. Ha ha well and simple.and sensible..that motto seems to hold good here

  5. Yes, I came up with many people who were afraid to die. Can a person live forever ? No is the answer. Live and let's live is my motto, Well, maybe they are afraid to go to hell not so much about death.
