Scenario 1) The world is writhing with poisonous fire, get used to the flames so your scars are thick enough to resist the toxicity and you can venture out into the toxic chaos.
Scenario 2) Stop living in a toxic world.
Hmm, really tricky choices, huh?
For the record, when I lived entirely on processed food, my face was dripping with pus, I'd get home from work and pass out on the floor or couch or bed, only to wake inside of a body that audibly creaked with every painful movement. I lived on pain-killers and candy and boxes of wheat in different forms. There was no hormesis, no adaptation to the toxicity, only obesity and intense pain all day, all over. These people advocating intake of modern, artificial poisons to which the body should NEVER have to adapt are outright lunatics, willful liars and brazen heretics worthy of suffering any pain they have inflicted. If I listen to these bozos and eat a few cookies every week, that means I'm inflamed and living in pain for HALF of my life, and what of potential damage to my arteries? If my face is dripping pus and I am infinitely hungry and cannot stop eating more and more fake food, how is this beneficial to my longevity? Should I visit you every morning and smack your forehead with a pointy hammer just to make sure you can take it in the real world? Is that hormetic enough for you, you sick puppies? I'd be more than happy to, just let me know!
EDIT: Yes, to this day, even after months of pure paleo, a few cookies with wheat and/or margarine will create joint pain and face/back boils for three or four days. There is no healing from things that kill you.

Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
