ALL FOOD IS CHEMICALS
There are a lot of very misleading videos going around about food right now... talking about how cabbage doesn't burn and chemicals used for cleaning being in cereals. This is your friendly reminder from a scientist:
EVERYTHING has chemicals in it with big scary names. Some of them have just been given names that are easy for us to pronounce. Doesn't mean those foods are any safer than the ones that haven't been given common names. Sodium chloride, dihydrogen monoxide, acetic acid, (2R,3R,4S,5S,6R)-2-[(2S,3S,4S,5R)-3,4-dihydroxy-2,5-bis(hydroxymethyl)oxolan-2-yl]oxy-6-(hydroxymethyl)oxane-3,4,5-triol... all commonly used in foods... all dangerous when ingested in varying doses. You may know these things as salt, water, vinegar, and sucrose (a type of sugar).
Take this apple for instance:
Harmless yet full of chemicals...🙈🤔🤔
