"Rather not have it in our food. But the all the things I'm looking at several of them are additives that we actually know cause cancer at least an animal's an air food laws say that you can't approve any additives that are known to cause cancer in animals or humans. So in other words, even if we don't have the humidity really shouldn't be in our food. But some of them have been in use for so long. That. Sort of still allows them based on a sort of historic precedents there and people will hear grass generally recognized as safe things that we've been eating so long that people finish. They've we do have evidence for some of these that they're not safe. My goodness. Does that mean like in certain cases, it's below a certain danger level like other some semantics involved here? Well, the FDA has restrictions on some of these. They're supposed to be used in a certain way, they've worked for with baker's, for example, to make sure that they the way they use the two ingredients in do ADA, and and potassium bromide that they will not be dangerous at the be under certain levels at they'll make it way. But for the purest might think that even at a low level why have cancer causing green? And for these two things the choir to make bread you can make bread perfectly well without passing bromate and ADA. It just makes the dough rise more. Look, look prettier B B B. Be there. Go conditioners. They make them maybe feel different outlook different. They're not required for making bread. Goodness. So so this is a shelf life or pretty things up is is that a lot of these things. I mean, there were some preservatives VHA mbh, those are preservative news and food. They are listed on labels. If you buy things at the supermarket. You will see them on the label, and that's one thing the FDA points out you as a consumer can look and decide not to buy things that happened. They do extend the shelf life absolutely food coloring again, make things prettier. They may not even be used in foods that are green and yellow and blue they're they're they're using other foods, but again, they usually are listed. They should be listed. You can use things without going. Consumer pressure is tremendously powerful because when food blogger started writing about potassium bromate in ADA years ago several chain started stopped using them. So there's nothing like consumer pressure. People people don't buy things they won't sell. If people communicate to chain restaurants, especially when you don't know what's in your your son or your burger. That is incredibly as incredibly powerful speak with Ronnie ribbon health right here at the New York Times. She's got a piece called what foods are banned in Europe. But not banned in the US, she's responding to a a reader question. So your your reference that the video the brominated vegetable oil, it's the citrus-flavoured soft drinks.

It's an amazing health. Care system. And it's about to be dismantled. If veterans don't get it and really start objecting to this. Well, I I certainly agree with you on that. And the question becomes, you know, that there are some problems, obviously within the VHA a, and I think what one of the things that you brought up is they keep cutting their budgets back. And so they're not able to you know, to hire people they want the right? The doctors need to be paid accordingly, and as a staff need to be paid accordingly and the one thing I've noticed that RV here in Ann Arbor is the camaraderie between the different departments. You know, a large percentage of the people that work. There are veterans themselves for one third of people probably a third of the almost three hundred thousand employees in the VA or veterans, and they of course, they can empathize with whatever issue you've been through many. Of them, of course, have gone through the same issues. Let's put it that way. And you were mentioning all the support programs that are out there. I think the one thing they need to do is to publicize these ideas, more and more because as you mentioned there's end of care. There is long-term nursing if necessary there's there's. What is it called? I can't remember now companion care peer support and caregivers support. But all of it depends on funding and staffing, and what we've seen. Now is that they passed in June. They pass the the mission actor it's called the mission act the VA mission act, which is about to destroy the mission of the VA.
