    From todays Arizona Republic:

    Nearly three years after the candy giant Mars Inc. said it stopped producing a line of mexican candy because of "dangerously high levels" of lead are still being sold in California and still contaminated!!!

    The state dept of health warned this week that Lucas Limon and the Lucas Limon Con Chile made by a mexican subsidiary of Mars were found at the site of a candy distributor in San Jose....

    Another mexican candy Tama Roca banderilla made by a differant manufacturer also tested high in lead!!

    The orange county Register said the candies were the subject of an investigation 3 years ago,,,,and state and federal regulators had known for a "decade" about the candy but did little to warn the public or remove the products from the stores!!!

    The state legislature approved a bill to make it a crime to sell lead-laden candy,,,,an attorney for Mars Inc. said,,,"the candies must be old"!!!


    This my friends is what awaits us when we start importing more of our food than we manufacture!!!!!

    This is what happens when the USDA removes warnings on food!!!!

    Thru NAFTA much of our food will be coming in free from inspections,,,,free from warning labels!!!!

    Arizonas farmers have threanted to move south of the border already...No big deal to you in New York State you say!!!!! Well guess what,,,,,,all your green veggies come from arizona and california in the winter!!!!!

    This is not good people!!!!

    Much of that lead-laden candy was also being sold at K-Mart AND Walmart!!!! But it had warning labels on it that warned of lead content,,,,but only in Arizona,,,,those warnings have since dis-appeared from the bags!!!!

    Wait until they finally admit what comes in mexican fruit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Our leaders are too busy preening.

  3. Interesting letter to the editor in today's Columbus Dispatch from a development paint chemist who reveals the fact that millions of gallons of lead pigmented paint have been used on highway bridges , guardrails and road surfaces (striping) by municipal and state govts :
    " If the Ohio Supreme Court allows the case aagainst 10 paint companies to continue this should open an expansion to include state, county and city govts and/or responsible people in office during a time when these agencies and people specified and applied lead-based paints to our roadways " . The author goes on to point out the leaching of the lead pigment into waterways etc and that lead pigmented paints were in use 2-1/2 decades after 1978 when lead was recognized as a toxic carcinogen. To quote pogo ...." we have met the enemy and he is us "
