Bear in mind anything can be tolerated at some level or another, and anything can kill you at some level or another. Quantity is extremely important with things like this, and it's the factor that always seems to be left out when people panic about an ingredient in something.

What levels are we talking about here? Have you considered the possibility that other countries have wrongly banned it?

Isn't it the point to reduce the fat and enhance the meat percentage?

In fact, drugs in the same class are currently being used in experiments to actually fight cancer in humans.

I considered that Canada, USA, Brazil, Australia and some other countries
have allowed it, even though it's not necessary, and although no one really
knows if the stuff is bad for us
, no one can really guarantee that it's all that good for us,
and when farmers start adding crap to our food, and making us eat that stuff in tiny amounts,
just so they can add 1% profit, when we add everything up - fungicide in our apple juice,
hormones in our meat, pesticides on our strawberries - when we add up all those tiny amounts
of drugs and chemicals- we'll all be the losers. And the drug companies/agribusiness will be the winner.


So you admit that no one knows if there are any ill effects.

No one dies immediately. All the problems happen long term.

It's what we want. So they give it to us.


The same thing is put in our bodies as a cure for cancer - why would you object?

I see you don't answer questions but here's a thought for you - it's possible this is about politics.

THE TIME THIS CRAP SHOWS UP IN CANCER STAISTICS, NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO PROVE IT.'

Doesn't make sense if it is being used in order to treat cancer.

Not all chemicals will have long term health effects. Stop assuming that just because it's a chemical, and some guy somewhere believes it's harmful, that it's bad for you.
