I think you will have to leave it at that. Some people (like me) don't need a lot of proof or too many studies to convince me that chemically manufactured goods aren't good for me. Other people need a lot of proof. Like I was saying, it's not necessary to convince others, as long as you can convince your family then you've done a lot of good in the world.

"Binging is a descent into a world where every restriction... is cut loose. At its core is a feeling of deprivation.. a feeling you can never get enough. Binges do not signify a lack of willpower or inability to care for yourself. On the contrary, binges are a urgent attempt to care for yourself when you feel uncared for. They are the voice of survival. Binges are the mark of the self that says, 'I am tired of feeling deprived, of being told I am wrong, that I am bad." - Geneen Roth
