The entire "organic" schtick in environmentalism was originally created by health nuts who assumed that any manufactured food additives or fertilizers were "bad" for you, even though they meet FDA or EPA or USDA safety requirements.
So now counterculture health nuts have started slipping their tracts into environmental propaganda. Now heres the answer. An auto engine is going to burn and breakdown any residual additives that somehow make their way into fuel grade ethanol. In other words, it makes absolutely no difference.

Originally Answered: A Super Bowl in snowy environment?
The game will be played in New Jersey in 2014 so there's a very real possibility we could have a Super Bowl played in the snow.
However, this year the game will be played in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis so there will be no chance of snow, or cold weather for that matter, impacting the game.
LOCAL is better then ORGANIC hands down...

Organic means nothing if you need to ship it in a truck or plane!
What I want to know is what happened to those electric cars I remember back in the early 1990's...
There is a movie you NEED to watch called "Who killed the electric car".
It isn't one of those Propaganda, anti-republican, doc's your used to... This actually uses FACTS to get their point across... Not lies and emotion.
Modern Marvles did a show in the last year about alternative energy too and they showed the wind turbine on top of Jay Lenno's house and how a compact and reasonably affordable design like theirs will be on the roof top of every home in the next 20 years!
Wind power tech is advancing 100% faster then solar... I can't understand why it isn't on everyon's roof right now!

ethanol is an overall bad idea. It raises food costs, and all the machinery involved in propogating, growing,harvesting, and processing uses almost as much fuel as they produce.
One report said for everyone 1.3 gallons of ethanol produced, 1 gallon of gasoline was used in the machinery to do it.

yes. so is hydrogen power.
i WISh someone would start to market those water vapor injectors that they used to use (as options) on older engines before computer controls came into being. Those injectors helped engines run cleaner and use less gas.

yes, they dont contibute so much to eutrophication or habitat loss, and neither do they add to bioaccumulation of pesticides.
fyi, hydrogen power takes more energy to crach the hydrogen than you get from it, so its only good if you use renewable sources to produce it

No, the immune system would still be there, and would work.
Here's the deal, though:
A new baby still has some immunity from its mother, and more from mother's milk. So it can slip in easily, and get introduced to new diseases gradually.
Also, when a child is growing, the cells are dividing rapidly and the immune system is very active. Later, after the person is grown, the immune system slows down too, so it takes a little longer to develop a new immunity. (In the general course of things, the person would already be immune to most things by the time the system slows down.)
How the immune system works: The body recognizes foreign proteins, and reacts against them. But to recognize that protein, the body has to have been introduced to it at some time. The first time can be rough.
That's the purpose of immunizations: They introduce the immune system to the proteins of some really nasty things, in a safe way. After that the body can react properly to the proteins of, for example, mumps or measles, without having to have first had the disease.
