Readers ask

When you put the question up about what they want to read in this blog to readers on Facebook

Tati suggests:

How aspartame is now going to be labeled a natural sweetener.

Well, Tati, I don’t know either. Aspartame is the only so-recently-called “natural product” that consistently gives me a headache right after I drink or eat it. Here is some basic information about the name change. I couldn’t find more than a few references to the change to “natural”, not even on the FDA page, but it is being talked about.

Finally, for today, Tere wants to know:

why did we believe that green M&Ms would make us horny when we were teens? did we really need the extra boost?

Tere, we needed something to blame for our raging hormones besides our natural horniness. Oh, and we needed an excuse, too. Here is a bit more info on that myth.

Other comments & suggestions to be continued tomorrow.

    This post made me laugh. It reminds me of when you were an advice columnist for that Hispanic magazine. Maybe you should do that again but for random Laredo questions. But there aren’t any good real Laredo magazines.

    Que Fregados, I’m a big fan of M*A*S*H and I would like to know what ever happened to Jamie Farr.
