This is such a true comic. I hate the way our society has become “There is a chance you could get cancer this product must be taken off the market!” Little do you know that that chance is near 0%, and the case it’s based on is full of other variables that no one takes into account (kinda like the whole global warming issue huh?!).
If there’s one thing wrong with the way we live it’s in too much fear. We fear the slight chance that one day we will get a cold, so we use bleach to clean every area of our house. Sure it allows us to live in a germ free environment, but the minute we get some germ, our immune systems are so underdeveloped that we quickly go into a tailspin and end up in the hospital (which in effects reinforces our germophobic habits). Now, don’t get me wrong, bleach is an awesome product, and useful for cleaning up blood evidence, lots of things, but you don’t have to go spray the door handle right before you touch it.
When did we forget to live life to the fullest, and instead live life in fear? Why must every product we buy/sell be 100% chemical free, antibacterial, biodegradable, not tested on animals (or humans), and guaranteed to not harm ants? Where are we going as a society like this? Nowhere.
This is a major problem in the way American’s live. Remember the 1950’s, we were king of the world. Everything we did was exciting, and new. Thing’s didn’t have a purpose, no one cared if their shampoo was tested on a monkey, as long as it didn’t make their hair fall out, they were fine with it, and kept buying it. People traveled the world, got sick, and then got better. They weren’t afraid of getting sick from something just because someone else got sick before them.
What has changed us? Money. Money has caused the media companies from moving to reporting real news, to whatever they think will get the most people to watch. Not only that, but frivolous lawsuits have all but destroyed the legal system of this country. What once was common sense, is now written law. And if it’s not written down, then you don’t have to follow it, and if you get hurt, it’s not your fault, it’s the other people, because they didn’t tell you that when you pull the trigger of that gun, it shoots something that can really hurt you.
Change your habits, be more open minded, take chances, and stop caring if you might get sick from some minute particle that only appears when there’s a full moon, and you say the magic words. If you live in fear of getting cancer I have news for you, just kill yourself now, because nothing you can do will prevent you from an act of nature. Sure some things are more likely to cause cancer (radiation poisoning), but unlike the State of California, some things are useful to life, and make it worth living.
Live life, stop worrying, and have fun.
