Why do people preserve food with petroleum-based substances that are known carcinogens, allergens...?

 

Why do people think that petroleum-based substances are hygienic, or 'smell nice'?

I can tell you how-to avoid petroleum-based substances in food. I can show you what to use to clean that isn't petroleum-based...

 

But - I'm up against big business and having to do a hard lobby, to get the regulators of perfumes and hygiene products to stop allowing these substances, in cleaning and personal care products that will make people suffering particularly in closed spaces like public transport, or workplaces.

 

Tell authorities that is time to stop forcing the population to consume petroleum-based substances on this massive scale, that all that money spent on research into cancer, diabetes, obesity and allergies is really cruel, given that the researchers know that the huge amounts of petroleum-based substances in our everything are causing the problem.
