Soy Foam Cushions
So there I was, watching good ol' Ty Pennington change the life of another woe-struck family.
Other than the fact that members of the happy family kept saying "Oh, my God!"-which struck my ear as blasphemous since they used it as a throwaway expression that actually had nothing to do with God-I enjoyed the show.
But, then! Yikes! They gave the go-green family a new Ford, proudly exclaiming about the seats being made with "environmentally-friendly" soy foam. Are they kidding me?
Soy is anything but environmentally friendly. It destroys the land it grows in, and the plant itself is poison.
• Sucks the minerals out of your system-minerals you desperately need • Causes kidney stones • Depresses thyroid function • Damages the hypothalamus part of the brain, which damages the endocrine system, wreaks havoc on the nervous system and plays a major role in autoimmune diseases • Does a real number your DNA because it's a genetically modified organism • Throws your estrogen, testosterone and progesterone for a death-defying loop, giving men breasts, women endometriosis, girls puberty whilst in diapers and boys a low testosterone level that lasts a lifetime. And then there's the not-insignificant matter of breast and prostate cancer
And they want me to spend hours plastered up against this poison as I drive?
Global warming and going green seem devoted to seeing no science, hearing no science and speaking no science. They've become feel-good causes for the brain-dead.
My guess is Ford decided to save a buck on cheap foam, but sell it as an environmental decision. But that's just a guess. Hard to believe that nobody in the company checked the facts, though.
I'm in the market for a car. Ford just talked me out of buying from them. Now I have to find out what other car manufacturers are similarly obtuse. Sheesh! Always a complication.
P.S. An aside: If you send me a sales pitch featuring OMG, the answer's 'no.' If offending people is a part of your sales strategy, please count me out. Lots of us feel this way, so I thought I'd give you a friendly heads-up.
God is good,
