Comment: I found the "toxin du jour" using the search engine and it is what I have
received in my email. However, I do not see where you have given it an
evaluation as to it's veracity. Please advise.

Thanks! If this is true, we DO need to spread the word, but if it isn't,
I don't want to forward it.

Come on, isn't it obvious. The page is true. It's true that all those stories have been passed around; of course, some of the INDIVIDUAL stories are false.

Oh of COURSE it's legit. Most of those e-mail spammers are just junk, but those trivita sellers, they mean BUSINESS.

Sell trivita? What IS trivita? If it's trivia, you can get more and you'll ever WANT for free. All you need is an e-mail address and at least one gullible friend who likes to forward junk.

TriVita is a company that apparently sells nutritional supplements, among other things.

Comment: I have received an e-mail from an acquaintance that I
should refrain from buying from the following brands as
they either discriminate against Israel or actively
support Arab terrorists. Do you have any info on this?

Actually, nobody is buried in Grant's tomb. Grant and his wife are embalmed in it, but not buried. If they were buried, it would be called "Grant's Grave." (ducks the fish!)

Hum, there's this quote:
