Re: Anthony, would u please tell me if u approve of these ingredients?
Actually, you did say that there were (at least) 2 types of PABA & Padimate O - with the naturally occurring ones being the ingredients Aubrey uses & are thus safe (& the chemical compounds not being so).
From your post:
>"This is incorrect. Para-aminobenzoic acid in an organic, i.e., carbon-based, chemical compound form, or in synthetic, i.e., chemically synthesized or manufactured, form, may cause such mutations. PABA derived from foods containing Vitamin B is "natural," i.e., found in nature, and does not. This naturally occurring, food-based water-soluble PABA derived from Vitamin B used by Aubrey has no evidence of causing DNA mutations in the same way that naturally occurring PABA found in mushrooms, spinach, whole grains and other foods pose no such threat."
>"The naturally occuring or natural Padimate O derived from Ester-C, also known as PABA Ester, and used by Aubrey Organics is also distinguishable from the organic chemical compound Padimate O, which is derived from condensation of 2-ethylhexanol and 4-dimethylaminobenzoic acid, as well as synthetic Padimate O, which may cause allergies, DNA damage and the sorts of problems that you refer to generally here."
Yes, I do feel that if someone posts something contrary to what someone previously stated, they SHOULD back it up with research. Some people are easily swayed into using products because "someone said they're safe." By the way, I did ask you nicely when I wrote: "So if you're going to "correct" any of my information, please give us all links to outside research." By that, I meant you need to give specific links (that relate to the topic at hand) so that we can research the topics for ourselves, not generic ideas as to where to look. I thought it was pretty self explanatory.
...Finally, I don't know why you would be "stunned" to read my posts about BC pills. You have no idea what I went through, so you are certainly in no place to pass judgment, but I will give you a little taste. I started my period at 9 years old and was bed ridden for 7-9 days at a time (& that's IF my cycle was actually regular - very rare!) from extreme cramping and loss of blood. Sometimes I went for 2 STRAIGHT months, then would skip 3-6 months! Also, I had to go to the gynecologist every 3 months for many years, as I was always having precancerous cells removed. Needless to say, it grossly interfered with my ability to function daily, and at that time in the world, there wasn't an internet or even alternative health outlets for you to have options. So it was either get on BC pills to regulate & cut down on the size of my cycle or suffer. I don't think it would be a tough decision for anyone.
And I'm outta here. This post has already used up way too much of my energy for no conclusion to ever be reached. Off to Europa I go!!!
