Okay… first lets talk about this for a second, before I give you links…
Lets think about chlorine. It’s a disinfectant, right? And it evaporates at a very high rate, right? And we find it in most things we eat because a disinfectant is better than bacterial infections, right? Because foods that go through any kind of factory are going to have a risk of infection, right? So… if you think that food you find in bags doesn’t have some kind of treatment applied to PROTECT your health… you’re just deluding yourself.
Lets now consider my job in the Navy… we *MADE* potable water. Made it. Made it from ocean water, then brominated it, then drank it. These things don’t harm us, they help protect us. Like many things in life, it’s not WHAT it is, but HOW MUCH you ingest. The amount of chlorine present on baby-cut carrots is so minimal (and sometimes non-existent due to evaporation) that there is essentially none to even consider by the time it reaches your face.
Also: Wash your damn food!!!! Unless it came from your own backyard… why would you stick it in your face without washing it? Because it’s in a bag? Seriously people… c’mon. You know better than that. Hundreds of hands have groped your food and you’re going to just nom on it like it ain’t no thang? Then you’re going to complain that companies provide disinfectants??? I seriously don’t understand the population.
Slow your roll people. Panic is silly.
