    Stopping you right there. Read up a bit on arsenic and you'll see why my comment wasn't as ridiculous as you think.

    It is naturally occurring in food. So what's the acceptable safe dosage? Wait, you didn't even know it was in your food in the first place. How were you to determine what was safe to eat? You've gone and provided support for my very-roundabout point: you and I are not informed consumers. The world is too effin complicated for us to make a rational decision on everything we're going to come across in our lives. And for-profit companies don't have a particularly compelling reason to make sure you're doing that.

    Ya, so we need a government to tell us what to eat because people are simply too stupid to undertake such a challenge...

    Please let me know how you can tell if an apple was grown in an area that the soil is tainted by arsenic.

    Besides a personal HPLC to test each apple in your crisper drawer....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Would you rather Monsanto or whoever just decide what you eat? With even telling you what it is

    It doesn't say in the Constitution that the government can prevent companies from dumping strychnine in the water supply, but we stop them from doing that too.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I remember as a kid being told how "Bad" eggs were for you, that you should only eat one or two a week...

    Imagine if they banned eggs?

    I don't like the government telling me the things I can or cannot put into my body voluntarily. I don't think trans fats necessarily fall under that umbrella.

    Well, since the point was more about being told WHAT TO EAT as opposed to simply maintaining safety standards, the comments are less relevant than intended.

    That said; ideally would be to grow your own food. Next is buying organic food, since there are stricter limits on the types of chemicals that can be used, an beyond that you are really just going on faith that the food is safe, but even with organic food there is a level of faith that foods are handled properly.
