"I think that if X was bad for you/dangerous/toxic/poisionous THEY would have told us by now/withdrew it from market/stopt making it. I don't think there is any need to worry"
- I totally agree; I trust them and think if they its safe then is is
- I agree somewhat; on the whole I believe what they say/sell and think if it was dangerous they/somebody else would have stop them selling it
- I don't believe everything they say and try to make up my own mind of things; but unless something is prooven as dangerous I won't not buy it/use it
- I am sceptical and aire on the side of caution; I try to research myself and don't take safety claims on face value
- I am highly sceptical and don't trust them at all. Everything I decide I decide fro myself based on lots of research. I believe we are told very little of the truth or the truth is not investigated for varies reasons.

How do you feel about this statement/s??

I'd say 4, I research everything!
I hate it when people say they wouldn't sell it if it wasn't safe - Cigarettes being a huge example, plus with baby things/foods etc I've found Australia is behind on most things or takes its time in getting around to changing eg: the chemical idodpropynyl butycarbamate was banned in Europe years ago but some baby wipes in Australia still contained it, ( we did petitions on bubhub last year to get it removed) and GMO in baby formulas etc

#4 for me too. I'm not a highly sceptical person, but I do like to make informed decisions based on my own researchs, whether is parenting related or not(vaxxing, circ, BF/FF, or chosing the family holiday, which insitute to study at etc.) There are so many differening opinions out there that it would be sort of foolish to make an informed decision based on one opinion so I think it really does to pay to do your research.

I would say I am more #3 however I have moved from a #2 so I am learning to be more critical in my consuming.
Some things I take great care to research and try and read all views before deciding but other things I just do/buy. And I must say that I am definitely guilty of not doing much research on food items/formulas beofre buying them... however that is slowly changing and while I still do get waylaid sometimes our food choices have never been healthier and Im researching what milk is best for DD instead of just giving her one at random. My change in thinking is definitely partly due to bubhub and realising that not everything is 'as it seems'.
I remember hearing about the babywipes thing and being that they can sell poisonous things for babies.
Needless to say the things we have/do with child number 2 will be better researched.

#3 for me. Can I point out, in option #4, it should be "err on the side of caution" not "aire"?

3 or 4. I used to be more 4 but I've gotten lazy....
I would never think that "they" look after our best interests and only allow safe products to be sold. That's incredibly naive.

Number 3 mostly, however there are some things I do research.
