As I said before (and feel you are purposely ignoring, as you feel others are purposely ignoring some of your points), some people feel that, although MIC toys are suspect enough that they'd rather not have them in their homes, they aren't proven to all be contaminated and therefore have chosen to let other families make that decision for themselves.
With used items you never know if the recall information was received.
If you believe (and I don't think you do, which is why I'm surprised that you made the comparison a couple of times) that people who have made such a choice would also leave used syringes and rat poison lying around, I really don't know what to say.
To me it's very much like leaving a syringe or rat poison around. Or car exhaust, or any number of other chemical things that affect the nervous system or the endocrine system. When you have lost years of your life to environmentally aggravated illnesses, things like this make me wonder what else we have been exposed to. A friend's son suffered permanent brain damage from an environmental toxin, and when I hear that lead can cause developmental delays...I can't help but make a mental connection, yk?
I just found out that some pharmaceuticals have chlorine and fluoride in them, for example, two things that are known for suppressing thyroid function. I think there are patients who would want to know those things upfront, but I have never had a doctor tell me anything of the sort when prescribing medication, have you?
I'm a bit of a zealot about this stuff because it affected my life. And the more I learn, the scarier it gets. Don't misunderstand my passionate response as anger, because I'm not angry with anyone here. I'm passionate about the subject at hand because I think it's important. I think we are being poisoned by our environment, and MIC stuff is only a very small part of it. Because of that, I would have to know any person who I gave a MIC toy to had at least heard about the concerns.
I'm sure I'd feel differently if I had not had these experiences, but years of going to doctors and being told it was all in my head while I was too sick to work or even feed myself has changed my views a lot. I'm really not trying to say I'm better than anyone else, I just can't imagine how awful I would feel if I found out someone went through the same hell and I was even a little bit responsible.
