Acrylamide

I went to a coffee shop in LA the other day, and while I was waiting for my cup of Joe I spotted a fairly large sign about Prop 65, a “right to know” law that requires the State of California to maintain a list of chemicals that cause cancer or reproductive toxicity (such as birth defects or other reproductive harm). Businesses that knowingly expose patrons to such chemicals above certain levels are required by law to display warnings. In this case, the sign was about acrylamide, a substance found in coffee and baked goods sold in the store. I watched as others scanned the sign and expressed brief looks of concern or confusion. While nobody opted to cancel their order, those who took the time to read the warning did seem a bit unsettled. I imagine we’ll be hearing a lot more about acrylamide in the near future, not just in the Golden State, but nationwide. Here’s what you need to know:

Why am I so concerned?
Well I know a bit about acrylamide. Since 2000 (with the exception of a little less than two years) I have worked for a company that makes this stuff. Yes, it isn’t just produced naturally. And it really isn’t all that good to ingest this stuff. The link above, is just one informational link. Look it up yourself. Don’t just take my word (experience), do your own research.
Could you chalk it up to something like the cyanide that is found in apple seeds? Personally, I’ve never let a good apple seed go to waste (eating the core and all). But sadly, not all apples are good for you like much commercialized food these days.

I’m not trying to scare you, just inform, because I’m pretty sure you just don’t know. Do your own reasearch, and make up your own mind.

My blog, My way Welcome to a little piece of my life. Here you will find things concerning my everyday experiences and or my thoughts on everyday happenings. For instance you may find thoughts of my Farmstead, which is as my wife calls it, our Accidental Farming life. Perhaps on a whim, I might just jump on a soap box about what's going on with my crazy family (the immediate one, that is).~You don't need to put a penny in the coin slot for any commentary there~ You may find, new additions to what I call "Hobby-time". Ahh yes, my hobby... I make pinback buttons (some call them badges). Sorry for the shameful plug ;-) *** And then there is the outside the box or "Offtrack" thinking, part of me. Which can be anything else from aliens to the zoology of the Loch Ness monster, but will probably be more mundane as health concerns, for instance, to vaccinate or not. Is the Earth Flat or is it Hollow? Is there a dome? Is any of it real? Do you really want to know? Police brutality and the continuing corruption of established government, Big Business, Big Oil, Big Brother. Can we survive? Should we survive? The coming montrary collapse. There is so much going on, more then we see outside our windows.

  1. Perhaps using a link that references proposition 65 wasn’t my best idea, after looking at that 1986 proposal.
    Still; acrylamide is created in food (the way it’s cooked) and polyacrylamide (less dangerous) in so many other commercialized products.
    Just “food” for thought, in this heath conscious society.
