    I'd guess many people eat these since they seem to be the most readily available oysters in a non-offensive oil (olive oil). I just noticed on the side of the box it reads:
    [​IMG]
    Dont mind the "with red chili pepper" it is exactly the same on the "naturally smoke oysters in pure olive oil" can.

    Anyone have any idea what this is about? May have to stop eating these.

    Also does anyone have a recommendation for a better brand of canned oysters? Maybe there is something better out there (besides fresh) that I haven't been able to find.

    I'm not sure why so many people here eat those anyway. You can get the same Korean farmed oysters frozen at most asian supermarkets.

    I dont know much about it; but I have seen that exact warning somewhere before. A few months back I went to the hardware store to purchase a replacement metal door lock. That exact warning was on the package on the back. I asked the guy who worked there but he didnt really know, just mentioning it had to do with their laws and such. Obviously, this is different, since you woudnt eat a lock lol, but I figured I would mention this.

    So the lock can cause birth defects just from touching it? Yeezus, what is the world coming to? They have to put toxic chemicals on everything.

    Yeah I am not too sure. I wish I kept the packaging so I could post a pic of the warning itself; it may have been worded slightly different. And as silly as it sounds, I didnt want to touch the lock at first either :p

    Doesn't everything in California cause cancer?

    I bought a sleeping bag filled with duck down from Colorado and its got the California cancer warning on it.

    *it only causes cancer if its used in California, its ok in the other states.

    Starbucks coffee, McDonald’s french fries, and Disneyland all have similar Prop 65 warnings. The note is a CYA more than anything so they can’t be sued by morally hazardous lawyers. It’s interesting but not informative.

    Dear Cyclops,
    I can not be sure about the source of lead or cadmium here but anything biological that accumulates zinc may also, especially if zinc is deficient, or cadmium is in excess, accumulate cadmium as well or instead due to their physiochemical similarities. This does not mean that cadmium's properties are similar to zinc when it comes to biological effect. The same is true for calcium deficiency and lead uptake. 'Fast' metabolisms tend to pick up more, at least according to hair tests, FWTW, and excretion should be faster too except cadmium tends to compromise kidney function and lead active removal pathways are poor to non-existent. In heavy metal poisoning, slow metabolisms may be a biological adaptation to reduce heavy metal toxic effect as well as an inducerof, slower metabolism.

    I trust this is in some way helpful.
    Kind regards,
    Sheila

    Just listened to Ray Peat interview with John Barkhausen on Progesterone 3. he said in the 60's they started labeling everything with a cancer risk so that the real cancer causers could go into obscurity, like soot, radiation, smog and the other really bad chemicals. it was a hoax by the government to cover up cancer causing pollution and to let industry carry on with no restraints.
