Science is still out and more testing should be done. Like everything "new" I am skeptical as to whether the benefits are outweighing the drawbacks, but I'm not entirely crazy and have been eating clean. There is a group on SP about eating clean; see the groups I belong to on my SPage. I grow 90% of my vegetables in season; the rest of the time I have to be extra careful because even the so called health food store had some 8xxxx food labels. When I confronted them, they told me that the 8 was used because they ran out of numbers with the 9xxxx! Liars. As the article said, it's voluntary. Watch gov't bills when they are being proposed and write your politicians, sign petitions. Not a whole lot we can do against those big biz; maybe one day we'll make enough noise and they'll listen. They did for transfat.
