    About the health and safety of Americans to begin with, and not about Corporate Power, and enabling Corporations to make and sell risky products, I am sure that far fewer people would be cancer-free.

    Instead we have a rigged system, wherein Corporations design the tests and the data collection and then they design the published results that say the products are safe, when they aren't. Plus often  the Big Corporations simply outright lie. For instance, when RoundUp was undergoing the EPA approval system back in the early 1970's, Monsanto simply lied and did not disclose that formaldehyde was one of  the chemicals  used in its formula! Had they revealed that formaldehyde was part of the mix, they would not be able to sell it over the counter in the state of California!

    And every single time I see ads for Febreeze and for Glade and Lysol, with images showing that it can and should be sprayed inside a baby's nursery, i get physically ill knowing what the components of those things are doing  to America's kids and infants! (You will never hear an announcer's voice SAYING you can spray this stuff near children, pets or infants, because that would be illegal. So the images suggest the product is safe in being used that way!)

    Offer your heart some Joy every day of your life, and spread it along to others.
