Strange Canned Foods

Not only may contain, but DO contain (gulp)! Blergh! Could you eat these strange canned foods?

(hamburger, whole chicken, tongues, cheese, bread, whale meat, fish mouths [THAT one looks gross!], scorpions, roasted crickets with eggs, silk worm pupae)

(hope you didn't read that over lunch)

A winning entry?

Certainly haven't run across any good labels of late, but maybe this post will contain a winning entry for the iPod Touch contest being run by PriceCanada.

Wacky Warning Labels

The Michigan Lawsuit Abuse Watch website has a wonderful website dedicated to Wacky Warning Labels! Visit it to learn such useful tips as, "don't use a lit match or open flame to check fuel level", and "Don't try to dry your phone in a microwave oven." Fun stuff

Personal labeling

OK, another actually useful bit of information. Here's a site called that allows you to enter your own text (name, address, emergency contact info, type and severity of allergy) and it will output a nice wallet-type card for you or your loved one to carry around. Of course you could do this with MS Word, but this is a nice little application.

That's a lot of cosmetics!

I was just reading the current issue of Allergic Living Magazine, and there's a brief article about how new labeling laws for cosmetics go in to effect in Canada on November 17th. Basically ingredients have to be in plain English after that date, so "lactis lipida" becomes "milk lipids", etc. (apparently everything's currently in Latin, which afaik was never the language of the common people!). You can read more about the new regulation in this Health Canada pdf.

What really caught my eye though, was the following statistic: "...each Canadian, on average, uses between six and 12 cosmetic products every day..." Holy Crap! That doesn't say each Canadian woman, but each Canadian. Let's see, I use deoderant each day, and shampoo, and soap. So if I'm using 3, someone out there is using at least 9, just to get to the lowest average number. What are you people doing to yourselves!!!!!
