I think we are all aware at this stage that there are two worlds.
There is the world we live in where real science states that "the dose makes the poison" or words to that effect, and then there is the surreal world of the Puritan, where there seems to be "no safe level" of a rapidly increasing number of items.
We know for example that in their world there is no safe level of nicotine, second hand smoke or alcohol. I'm sure we will shortly see a "no safe level of sugar" [if they haven’t declared that already]. Now that they have found themselves a nice little catchphrase, I can guarantee the the "no safe levels" will increase exponentially. In the real world that we inhabit we of course know that this is a load of bollox, otherwise we would all be long dead.
I came across an item a little while back. I forget it's source [Twitter?] but it gave pause for thought.
So the American EPA is considering reducing the "safe level" of Formaldehyde to a level that is well below the natural level found in our own breath? What this means is that every time we exhale, we are naturally surrounding ourselves in a carcinogenic cloud and there is fuck all we can do about it. Every single one of us is breathing dangerously high levels of a carcinogenic gas all the time. You can move to Mars, live in an artificial atmosphere, eating organically grown food and drinking distilled water but you can't get away from that evil noxious gas.
As I pointed out recently, our bodies naturally contain quite a few items that I'm sure the EPA should worry about. Surely there is no safe level of Uranium or Radium? Not in their world anyway?
So the bottom line must be that the natural contents of our own bodies have "no safe level" and must therefore be avoided at all costs?
Maybe I just accidentally hit on the solution a couple of paragraphs ago?
Let's just send all the Puritans to Mars where they can suffocate in their own cancerous breath.
