What about GMO fish bladder?  I want my fish to have the biggest, most bodacious bladder around.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

There seems to be too may people who think they are getting out of this alive.  I really wish they would notice that we all have an expiration date and just let the tiny little threats go once in awhile.  Too much of anything is bad for you, don't seat the small stuff.

Have not read that in detail.

As the famous undertaker/poet down the street says - "with one birth you also get one death."

Thomas Lynch is who I refer to. He has written many books on the dismal trade (undertaking). Those are thoughtful, and excellent reads.

This is my thought process when people look at me weird when I eat "unhealthy" things like pan-fried chicken and homemade macaroni and cheese. Hey, you only live so long and I ain't going without fried chicken! ...but I also don't eat it but once every two months or so.

This article lost credibility with this line in the first paragraph "loaded with both toxic and genetically modified ingredients, including GMO corn syrup, GMO coloring and fish bladder". Are fish bladders toxic or GMO?

Halfway through, I said to myself it was cribbed from the Food Babe, which was confirmed with the link towards the end.

I wonder how they feel about plastic being used in the beer? PVPP is even Reinheitsgebot compliant, since it is not found in the finished beer.

Yeah, but that's not the point, at least to me.  The point is the length and quality of life.  Not that I agree in any way with the article, but I just find this to be a weak argument without much thought behind it.
