You can come back an amend your answer.
Taken the time to maybe keep track of what your eating and come
back and change the result. Lets see how it changes over time.

i think the more important question is why does 'additive' have a negative connotation?

I don't see the negative connotation in the poll. i just intrested in seeing what the feedback is. so why did you think it was negative?

I don't, generally, regard "additives" as a bad thing per se... food with too many colourings or sweetners tend to be rather nasty, but I'm all in favour of many types of preservative (means I have to spend less of my time shopping).
"Additives" is a pretty broad term... all sort of things have E numbers.

i didnt mean to say that your post about additives had a negative connotation- rather i was making a social observation. weve all seen the juice ads; "who wants all those ADDITIVES and PRESERVATIVES in their juice?"
