Mark Morford on living with chemicals and choosing your battles wisely and sin...

This is what we have to accept: You do not avoid poison. You do not escape toxin or chemical or gravity or modern synthetic residue even if you move to the woods and build a humble off-grid shack made only of fresh pine needles and bird dung and make your own jam out of river moss and beetle larvae because, hey look, up there in the sky, it's the very air itself, full of chemicals and pollutants drifting over from China and India and, um, Marin County, and you're breathing it in and it's coating the very trees and raining down upon your organic tomatoes right now. Sorry. Please enjoy your salad.
