Truly. I posted about this issue under another thread. Bugs in your coffee is just the tip of the iceberg. Bugs, rodent hairs, poop, etc. end up in everything - including things you might think safe like frozen broccoli. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=28561
I was watching a video on the VSH website a while back by Dr. Milton Mills (I think). He listed on one side of the board things that people get themselves worked up about (think pink slime, 'Starbugs', etc) and on the other side things that actually will kill you. The two lists had no overlap.
OK I'll take the bait--what things that will actually kill you?
This was the talk:

This is a GREAT lecture and should be watched by anyone with a recalcitrate relative. Preferrably BY the relative.
Dr. Mills shows a slide with the things that people fear the most. They are:
Accidents (plane crash)
Scary Disease d'jour (whatever the media is on about at the time)
What people fear is lack of control.
Then he shows a list of what people actually die from:
80% of these deaths could be prevented through diet and lifestyle changes. So those thing we CAN control we don't fear - and we should.
