Some say that the spike in mental conditions like Alzheimer's, Attention Deficit Disorder, Autism, etc. coincide with the spike in the use of aluminum cookware? Did these conditions exist when everybody used cast-iron skillets?<quoted text>

"Cotinine is a major metabolite of nicotine and is currently regarded as the best biomarker for exposure to tobacco; exposure of both active smokers and of nonsmokers to ETS. Cotinine measurement is preferred over measuring nicotine because, although both are specific for exposure to tobacco, cotinine is retained in the body much longer than nicotine. Cotinine can be measured in blood (i.e., in serum), urine, saliva, and hair. Nonsmokers exposed to typical levels of ETS have cotinine levels less than 1 nanogram per milliliter (ng/mL), with heavy exposure to ETS producing levels in the 1 to 15 ng/mL range. Active smokers almost always have levels higher than 15 ng/mL, sometimes over 500 ng/mL."
..."less than 1 nanogram per milliliter"...
Are you old enough to remember the scare about sugar substitutes causing cancer? As it turns out, a human would have to consume the equivalent of a car full compared to the amount tested in rats.
Sugar substitutes are used everywhere now.
Same with eggs and high cholesterol. People were afraid to eat eggs like the plague for a long time. Until another study came out and said, "Oops, we were wrong about that."
The moral of the story: Don't believe everything big government agencies tell you. They are often wrong and exaggerate the data.
Just like "less than 1 nanogram per milliliter..."

Liberals would like people to believe that the reason Walmart workers' wages are so low is because the CEO's salary is so high. If CEO Michael Duke forfeited his entire annual salary and distributed it evenly among every Walmart employee, each one would receive about $8.

So you want millions of people to die from poison air, poison water and radiation from nuclear power plants, just so giant corporations like Wal Mart and BP can make even more obscene profits on the backs of their slave workers? That's exactly what would happen if not for the EPA and other environmental watchdog groups. Look at what's happening in China.

Image that! A Federal Court Judge from N.C., a staunch Republican in the pockets of N.C.'s tobacco industry, strikes down part of a report from an environmental group. Say it ain't so!
#810923 Nov 25, 2012
So how long have you been working at Walmart?

Make no mistake, if Obama gets his future Supreme Court picks confirmed (which he will) and makes it even more liberal than it already is, he can change plenty! The legislative and executive branches of government don't make the final decision on which laws and constitutional rights are valid, the judicial branch, i.e. the Supreme Court does.
#810925 Nov 25, 2012
Well Carol, all I can say is don't make stupid statements in your posts because I'll call you on them every time.
As for being spoiled brats, that's rich. All you have to do is read some of the comments from those on the right calling for impeachment and secession with American Lady even suggesting states withhold their vote totals in order to thwart to will of the American people.
#810926 Nov 25, 2012
One of the best things about this election is that Obama will be able to put together a Supreme Court that can deal with the 21st century instead of the 18th!
Undo some of the damage Neo-Con Repub buttclowns have done to this Nation since Reagan.

Marilyn Monroe is hated by Republicans because she slept with JFK.
In Sex Scandals GOP Trumps Democrats.
Republicans have more scandals 35 to 28, but Democrats have bigger ones, based on their methods of determining.
Democrats seem to have more problems with harassment, staffers, and underage girls.
Republicans tend to have more problems with prostitutes, hypocrisy, and underage boys.
#810929 Nov 25, 2012
Agreed! America has to get rid of all these deadly guns, shut up right-wing hate radio, stop tying the hands of law enforcement officials and allow President Obama to serve more than two successful terms.

God did not make Muslims. They were created in Hell by Allah and sent here by his pal Satan and instructed by Mohammed to torture and kill everybody who doesn't worship Islam at any cost, even the lives of their children. The Muslim culture could have only been created in Hell.
#810931 Nov 25, 2012
Not gonna happen , unless you want war right here in our streets and countryside .
#810932 Nov 25, 2012
But ghetto-rats are sure proud of their Obamaphones. Everywhere I go they're showing them off. They just wish they could get one the "color they just done gots their nails did".
#810933 Nov 25, 2012
I wonder what the outcome of the election would have been if one of the requirements to vote was to have a High School diploma or G.E.D.? That would have thinned out about half of Obama's supporters.

Paris Hilton has just opened a ladies handbag shop in Mecca just in time for the annual pilgrimage. Muslims are outraged and are threatening to burn it down and take out a bounty on her life. Well, I guess Muslims aren't all bad.
#810936 Nov 25, 2012
I get confused in the morning sometimes. Can one of my lib brothers or sisters help me out? Ok, I just woke up and need to know what to think and say today.and also should I take my prozac before or after I smoke the crack?
#810938 Nov 25, 2012
You gun nuts would be no match against Homeland Security and U.N. forces, but it would be fun to watch you try. Imagine a bunch of alcoholic tobacco-chewing deer hunter wannabes against some of the best trained and armed forces in the world. Like I said, it would be fun to watch you shoot at something that could actually shoot back. You guys better get rid of those beer guts, get in shape and learn to run like hell!!
#810939 Nov 25, 2012
Due to the mass exodus of employees from Walmart and their record Black Friday losses, maybe you can get a job there. And as luck would have it they don't drug test, so you're a shoe-in as a greeter!
#810940 Nov 25, 2012
great idea. Thanks. That counts a 1 more job obama created right? But will they expect me to actualy work?
