This Email is Dye-Free
I was at the drugstore making my annual purchase of a huge bottle of ibuprofen and I noticed that bottle right next to the one I normally buy said "dye-free" ibuprofen. Since I'm quite certain that the dye isn't what gets rid of my headaches, and it's not like I need to have my pills dyed to make them more appetizing, I selected the dye-free option. Then I noticed that dye-free costs $1 more than the dyed version. Listen, unless some dye company is paying the ibuprofen makers to take dye off their hands, that doesn't make sense. So, not only have they been poisoning me with unnecessary dye for decades, but now I have to pay them to take it out.
