Links to articles which may be of interest to candobetter visitors

(Published Friday 17 June 2011 by Ethan Huff in ) Millions of people eat and drink from plastic and styrofoam cups and containers every single day, and the US government now admits that many of these consumer products contain known cancer-causing agents. The formaldehyde preservatives found in many disposable coffee cups and foam take-out containers, as well as styrene, another chemical additive used in such products, have both been added to the federal government's list of known or suspected carcinogens. 

(Published Sunday 19 June 2011 by Paul Craig Roberts in ) While we were not watching, conspiracy theory has undergone Orwellian redefinition.

A “conspiracy theory” no longer means an event explained by a conspiracy. Instead, it now means any explanation, or even a fact, that is out of step with the government’s explanation and that of its media pimps. 

A note to interested readers: If you know of articles likely to be of interest to other readers, you could consider adding links as comments here. We can then add the links to this page. Of course, also please continue to include links in comments in response to other stories or in our section. For those unfamiliar with , the HTML source for the ">link above, as I typed it into the Drupal page editing form, is:

<h4><a href="" id="example_link">Disposable coffee cups, carry out containers filled with cancer-causing agents</a></h4>

The surrounding <h4></h4> tags could have been replaced with the <h1></h1>, <h2></h2>, <h3></h3>, <h5></h5>, <h6></h6>, or <p></p> (paragraph) tags or even omitted altogether as a Content managed web-site will treat line-breaks as paragraph ends (although strict HTML doesn't). Even if the link were to be included in a comment as only or even just we would still be able to make use of it, but please at least include some descriptive words or the title, so that we can know what the link is likely to lead to before we follow it and can be more confident that the post is not spam.

Also, please feel encouraged to post here your thoughts about the linked articles, whether supportive or critical.
