I'm never sure why so many see a transaction as only going in one direction.
    I disagree. Unless you don't know what in the product this is false. If I tell you the cyanide would make you popular and you knew it would kill you and you took it them you are 100% guilty and I am 100% innocent. It doesn't matter what I tell you if you know the truth.

    So far it looks like 8 voters who perhaps rode the short bus as children and are incapable of being responsible for what goes into their mouth.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    So if you eat salmonella tainted meat you believe it's your sole responsibility?

    Who sells salmonella tainted meat as a product? Unless you have a valid source this argument is over...

    IMO...

    Any substance that is intended for consumption, injection, or any form of introduction into the human body...should have all of its ingredients listed on the label.

    Now, if we start requiring a list of all possible effects on the human body for each and every one of those ingredients, we'll end up with small books glued to cheetos bags.
    And very few would read them in any case, so doing such would have no effect on the ingestion of chemicals and/or substances that might have unwanted effects on the person consuming them.

    No, what we have to do is tell people to read and understand the substance labels…
    For example, there is this powdered creamer for coffee that is provided free in the break area where I work – now, I’ve examined the labels of these containers several times – one brand had some compound that included aluminum, and another a compound including titanium…Now, I’m not entirely sure what these compounds do, but I’d frankly rather drink my coffee black than consume metal derivatives…so I do. Edit: Unless some milk-based liquid creamer with no additives (well, far less) is available.

    A person cannot abdicate their responsibility for their own action or inaction regarding their choices then blame others if they become obese or suffer ill health.

    No, that would fall under not honestly disclosing the contents/ingredients of the product you are selling. Unless you told someone that it was tainted with salmonella and they ate it anyway. And then it would be their sole responsibility.

    I should have posted this video and said in honor of the 8 who are incapable of being responsible for what goes into their mouths.
