Guess what. When food finally is broken down by the digestive process it becomes merely simple molecules that can pass the intestinal barriers into the blood stream.

Think about how an orange gets into your blood stream to do what it needs to do elsewhere in your body. It gets broken down biochemically into very simple sugars(along with its other nutrients), pretty much the same as a See's scotch mallow.

The body does not know the source of the simple sugars, just that they are the simple molecules that can pass into the blood stream. It doesn't know if it started out as a McDonald's apple tart or a chunk of organic dried mango, once it all gets down to a molecular level.

There are no toxic foods. They would kill you outright if they were in fact toxic. But there are "toxic" quantities of normal foods. That is a human problem; not a food problem.

One gets ahead of the game promising not to over-eat; not by committing to under-eating. Or paying someone to tell you what you just learned here for free.

Cleaning out the free-loading RV's from our prime tourist area is helping. Allowing them to fester in our own neighborhoods is not.

Did FrenchFry Girl think the no eating on the metro rules were for someone else? Is it the intentional commission of the illegal act, or the volume of the illegal consumption at stake here?

The best thing about global warming will be diluting the effects of all the hot air expended on this topic. East Beach, apply this same level of scrutiny to both sides of this issue. Dr Dan, get a muzzle for all the straw dogs you unleash. BTW: those dogs don't hunt no more. Woof.

Nativ1 - I never lie. Say what you want if you don't like what I write, but I never lie.

Everyone knows Bush side-stepped Congress and based his actions on a very loose interpretation of his powers as Commander in Chief, which was done with Congressional approval. Otherwise why all the teeth gnashing in 2008 over Hilary Clinton's "approval" of the war as senator. Obama played fast and loose with that one. Was Obama lying?

Obama's alleged protest against the war as a civilian, when he himself admitted he didn't know what he would have done had he actually been in power as an elected Congressional member and be required to vote in public on this ersatz delegation of powers to Bush and go against his Democrat party majority who was braying for war, or at least "revenge" - which Capps was willing, and quite safely able to reject.

Had Obama voted his usual "present" had he been in Congress, as he did so often when in the Illinois legislature, how would that have played in 2008?

Seems like Wendy McCaw Derangement Syndrome runs neck and neck with Blame Bush Derangement Syndrome in this forum - odd since it is now 2012, and amnesty is the word of the day.

Ahh shucks KV, busted. I lumped you in with the rest of those here who evidence a clear case of Wendy McCaw Derangement Syndrome. Thank you for clearing your good name. And I shall drape black crepe around mine. Please world, retract those electrons in which I besmirched KV.

This isn't talking about eating; this is talking about purging. Dubious in theory at best; junk science sold to the gullible in practice at the worst.

I have seen diss-ease from unhealthy thinking. Superstitious beliefs in junk science magic totems and magic rituals is but one example of unhealthy thinking.
