I was set off on this tangent when someone, in response to me pointing out a flaw in someone's rational for buying fancy chicken sausage instead of regular pork stuff, said "[Preservatives] are in everything."

It was a resignation kind of comfortable acceptance of that fact. Like it was okay to be consuming chemicals that are designed to prevent stuff from growing.
