Actually, you and Grace are not far off. Many preservatives are
anti-oxidants…you know…the stuff that keeps us young and prevents cancer.
Some are fit for human consumption and some are not. BHT/BHA used to be in
Triscuits. As soon as they were found to be excellent anti-oxidants for
humans (with no unhealthy side effects) they were replaced by something of
more questionable health qualities. Go figure!

Steichen died two days short of 94.
In "Eat Starch Mom" Grace Slick once crooned:
"Preservatives might just be preserving you. I think that's something you
might have missed. Ya, you missed it...vegetable lover."

Judy and list,
Well let's see a quick search came up with this.
Ansel died at 82
Stieglitz also 82
Edward Weston was 72
Minor at 68
I couldn't find the cause of death.
Hummm - either I have 2 or 12 years to go.<g>
Hope this helps
