The funny thing is that the illegal chemical is certainly going to be my systems (yes, I came from England) so worrying about it is pointless, just another scare story coming from tabloids. *shrugs*

Actually, I came directly from the Food Standards Agency, not the tabloids. This is official.

Yeah, but you know the tabloids will brick themselves and cry "OH MY ****ING GOD! WE'RE GOING TO DIE!!!!"

The fact that this chemical is recently outlawed isn't going to appear on their radar.

If you count recently as three years ago.

No one said "OMG! WE'RE GONNA DIE!!!!". Infact, they did completely the opposite. It wasn't in ANY tabloids. However, it was on TV news (Sky, BBC etc.), but by no account did they say anything to panic anyone. They said it's best not eaten, but not likely to harm in small doses.
