Cassie, thanks so much for that! No, you are not fear-mongering. I'm just becoming more aware a little at a time. I only just started this healthy thing in February, so I've got a long way to go and a lot to learn. I'd like to give my family healthier things than packaged, boxed, processed foods. I hope you can find an appropriate thread in the Food group to continue the conversation. I'd love to hear more from you on this. I will definitely start looking things up. I'm a "researcher" and learn most of what I know from the internet. My first project is going to be to make home made Bisquick
If I have any questions on anything I read, now I know who to ask.
You may not be an expert, but I bet you know more than most!
