    Do you need a study to tell you that eating food grown without chemical pesticides and herbicides is better for your health? Meanwhile, I'm happy to err on the side of caution and ingest as little of that sort of thing as possible.

    Even if there were a ream of studies that said chemical X, Y or Z didn't harm one's health that would still be something of a canard. The biggest problem with how the safety of chemicals is assessed is they are typically studied in isolation. Perhaps one can rightfully say that Chemical X is safe, but what happens if you take Chemical X and add a dose of A,Y,Q and L? Nobody knows.
