Good golly! I change my position 360 degrees with this news. Ice can cause hypothermia when consumed while wearing cotton clothing and hypothermia is deadly.

You may have saved a life today

And that (ice) is just frozen dihydrogen monoxide which we know can kill you if you have too much.

The worst part is that dihydrogen monoxide is in all our drinking water and has been found in high concentrations in all the oceans.

Indeed. It's very scary to think about. I just try to stick my head in the (dry) sand most days.

I still stand firm with my assertion that nobody is getting out alive.

And if you infuse that dihydrogen monoxide with carbon dioxide and drink it real fast you can make some really rad belching.

Apart fom the fact McDonalds products are tasteless crap, and the company has questionable business practices, they’re an environmental nightmare.

McDonalds are evil, and anyone who consumes their products are tainted.

Consider me proudly tainted! Every business morning for breakfast, and quite often throughout the other days for $1 large Diet Cokes and Ice Teas!

Oddly enough though, I rarely eat there outside of breakfast sandwiches and the parfaits.

Not just McDonald's, but all fast food establishments are environmental nightmares. Think about how much paper and plastic garbage a store produces in a day, then multiply that by 1,000 or however many stores exist. Just the nature of the beast. Still, I find it hard to totally avoid fast food places because of that.

Here's a tip: if something is actually a poison, it has a skull and cross bones label on it. Calling food "poison" just makes you sound like an extremist.

if you buy store bought milk, Pasteurized, homogenized, chilled, watered down, fat removed, standardized, plus more. All processes that pretty much destroy any and most nutritional value. which begs the question, why drink it? You don't need it for the calcium. Oh because a group of people making $ on it told you, that you needed it, Brawndo, "It's got what Plants crave"! comes to mind.
If you want Milk, why not fresh raw milk, It still has the living enzymes, and living beneficial bacteria that are good for you! If it does go sour the acid content discourages pathogen growth. fat content between 3-7%, if that is too much for you, don't you people preach the "moderation" thing anyways? why lower the fat to 2% just so you can "over indulge" yourselves with milk?

carrots if I have to explain the difference between raw and baby carrots.... this conversation is pointless. If you need someone else to slice real raw carrots for you.... well that also explains why you need skull crossbones and other warning labels.

Nature didn't come with warning labels. Please don't leave the city, you might find water hemlock, or worse!!!!

I am not an extremist, I just remained free from indoctrination.

some people need to be told to not touch fire, others just need to be taught what happens when they touch fire.

most people cough on smoking their first cigarette. it Is an automated immune response to harm. but then smokers slowly teach their immune system to ignore the harm.

basically if McDonald's food doesn't make you Nauseated after eating it. You're the last person I want nutritional advice from. Kind of like a smoker saying they are not bad, once you get passed the coughing.

then they say look, they can even smoke one without keeling over dead on the spot.

people are keeling over dead from bad diets!
and from also smoking.

Here's your answer to the milk question:

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), raw milk can harbor dangerous bacteria that can pose serious health risks to you and your family. The milk pasteurization process kills those bacteria.

Does pasteurization change milk?

No. According to the CDC, pasteurization does not significantly change the nutritional value of milk. In fact, you can get all of the nutritional benefits of drinking pasteurized milk without the risk of illness that comes with drinking raw milk.

When it comes to milk’s nutrients, all of milk’s minerals stay the same, but there is one small change when it comes to the vitamins. Raw milk contains a miniscule amount (<10 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance, so it’s not considered a good source) of vitamin C, which doesn’t survive the pasteurization process.

I fixed your quote for you. chilled milk and all the new milk processed stuff is less than 100 years, but hey in that last 100 years obesity is on the rise, heart disease is on the rise, diabetes is on the rise, adhd is on the rise, asthma is on the rise, autism is on the rise, not saying its connected to milk, but It most definitely is connected to the new way of viewing diet.

It's like asking why people need to get immunized for polio when there hasn't been a case for years. So much hype about nothing.

Here's what's in their ice cream (which they describe as Vanilla Ice Milk). Not really a toxic cocktail of chemicals at all:
Milk ingredients (milk, cream), sugar, glucose, soy mono and diglycerides, guar gum, dextrose,artificial vanilla flavour, carrageenan, cellulose gum.

well we could do an in person bicycle ride/race diet vs diet, fuel vs fuel "real life facts" if that works better for you.
