Hey, Americans: Are You Suffering from Pervasive Peanut Butter Avoidance Disorder?

While American consumers are running scared over the possibility of tainted peanut butter, it's worth pointing out that the number of people sickened by salmonella (529 at last count) is absolutely dwarfed by the number of people harmed or killed by toxic chemicals that are intentionally put into the food supply.

How many children die of cancer each year from eating sodium nitrite in hot dogs, bacon and processed meat?

How many adults suffer neurological impairment and ultimately die from drinking artificial chemical sweeteners?

And for that matter, how many U.S. adults have been killed by FDA-approved pharmaceuticals? That number is at least 100,000 per year  and may be much higher. At 100,000 deaths per year, over 8,300 Americans are killed every month by Big Pharma's medicines.

In contrast to all that, how many people have been killed by tainted peanut butter?
