"I guess we just have to hope the packaged and processed foods we do buy don't have a lot of harmful chemicals in it."
ALBERTJON, unfortunately, if you don't have a guarantee on the packaging of you food that there are no creepy additives, there are almost certainly creepy additives. If you eat major label foods (you know who they are...but I won't name any names), you are absolutely eating weird crap that they want to hide from you.
That's why so many of us eat organic. But don't think eating organic will save you from the fear of consuming chemicals and other yucky things. Weird things still creep mysteriously into organic foods. It's been documented many times.
So, the best thing to do is to stay alert. Don't just shove any old thing in your mouth. Do your research and figure out which brands you think you can trust the most. And grow your own food if you can...but be sure to buy organic plants to grow that food from. Many starter plants you can buy these days are actually genetically engineered.
