OMG, this is the LAST thing we need. To have to question something that is thought of as part of the fight against these organisms. I'm already compulsively paranoid about everything......from the air quality in my house, to the quality of the tap water, which I don't drink, but I do bathe in and you breath in all those contaminates through steam, to every time my cats use their catbox, i obsess about what they are tracking all over my house. Getting rid of them is not an option.....even organic herbs (are they REALLY organic? Is this brand the most effective? What kind of container should I store them in? Do these glass jars have lead in them?) AND now I need to question my trusty ACV which I use in my homemade salad dressings, enemas and drink? Noooooo!
I swear, when i first saw those videos, I wanted to throw up 1000x to make up for all the times I have ingested ACV. Of course, that wouldn't help, but the ewwww factor made me ill. I hope someone here has a microscope and can do their own investigation. Someone please look into this!
I remember countless times when I would see the "mother" in a glass of ACV I had prepared in some water to drink and it would weird me out; it did look kind of 'wormy', but I would give myself a pep-talk that it wasn't creepy; it was good for me and drink it down. I'm going to try to not run away with this as fact, until we get some more evidence. For all we know, that was a bad batch or something. :-/
As far as Kombucha, I don't drink it, but I do drink coconut kefir waters....by the gallon. God help me if the 'healthiness' of that ever gets questioned...
***PS. I have no idea why this got posted in the Tobacco forum. It was an accident and I can't see how to fix it. Sorry guys over there!
