Nearly everything has a known lethal dosage even water and oxygen that can both kill you in higher doses, as does a slew of common foods we eat everyday so yes like Cinnamon one should keep in mind the limits... No one is says soak your eggs in Sharpie ink overnight or whatever, writing a date is a minute amount of exposure, and even less when you consider what might actually make it inside the egg if any...
As for smoking, lets focus on the subject at hand, writing on an egg with a Sharpie is not equivalent to smoking in any regards, that is just a silly highly exaggerated comparison...
Would you empty 100 sharpies into a glass and drink it? I believe not. Would you even lick a sharpie? I believe not.
Would you grind up the graphite/clay/binders in 100 pencils into your glass and drink it? Lets, be realistic here, focus on the application and hand and avoid the hyperbole extremes, OK?
We are talking about writing the date on an egg nothing more... So can we stick to the relevant subject and exposure potentials of that taskalone, while avoiding absurd exaggerations and hyperbole of unrelated topics and substances?
I take it one step further and would not write on eggs that I plan to eat.
I try to avoid processed food, perfumes and parabens in shampoos, cream and so on, so it's more a general believe than a sharpie-phobia
And that is your choice, doesn't mean those who do differently are wrong...Edited by MeepBeep - 11/20/15 at 12:39pm
