Let me quote Stefen Loran with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency as
part of a communication to us today, February 10, 2001.

"""1) Linking your logo and trade names "Lifespan (clock)" and
"extropian" to
"nutritional stress" on your label is not permitted as this claim gives
the impression to the consumer that eating the bar, compared to other
foods, will selectively increase life span. Remove references to
nutritional stress. Please also note that if "extropian lifespan" means
increased or extended life span, then this would also be considered a
violation of the Canadian food labelling regulations and subsequently
must be removed from the label."""

I'm furious with this attitude on behalf of those who openly aspouse to
"protect the stupid by not providing information which they might not

I have composed a response to protect our position.
