When I interviewed Mercola he also said your remote control car door opener car will kill you - and underwire bras, and microwaves, and electric razors, and your kids’ vaccinations, and swimming pools, and toothpaste, and all girls named Heather…
Not saying he’s wrong, just a wee bit paranoid. I think there are much bigger issues people need to worry about. I mean, you have people afraid to use Splenda yet they drive cars. If you really wanted to stay alive a long time, you’d skip driving, because statistics show that’s how most of us are going to die, barring disease.
Sort of reminds me of when vegans won’t eat “unhealthy” meat yet they smoke.
And if we use sugar instead of Splenda then we may be fat. And being fat will kill you way faster than any artificial sweetener.
In short, Mercola is an interesting guy, but he majors in minor things. His big ideas are pretty good, but he gets a little paranoid when he gets down to the minutia.
Me, I’m still going to buy Splenda by the box. A big one.
Here’s my interview with Mercola:
