What’s the difference between a dead dog in the road and a dead lawyer in the road?

The first three ingredients that Wilberforce reads off are iron supplement, vitamin B2, and vitamin B1. The disodium phosphate is used for anti-caking, or thickening, or for faster cooking as it is fast to absorb water.
I just laugh when I hear the hue and cry over GMO.
People have been modifying crops and animals for thousands of years. (and yes I know how monocropping is a bad idea)
They can quit putting brominated vegetable oil in citrus soft drinks, though: that stuff can be toxic if you drink a lot of it.
Our main issue is that we refine sugar (and corn syrup) in mass quantities and eat it like it’s a staple of our diet. This wasn’t the case before the 20th century. It’s ironic that the “health food” of 110 years ago was cornflakes, and all too soon, sugar coated cornflakes. Before that, breakfast tended to be bacon and eggs, sausage, potatoes, etc. But once sugar was mass marketed the changes began.
It is NOT the fat in the diet that makes us fat. If this were the case, then everyone in that turn-of-the-century time would have been pudgy. Instead, you see that only a few were: well-to-do individuals who were able to afford the sugar-rich foods that at that time were specialty items. Thus at that time being portly was seen as a measure of success.

Play stickball in the street with the other neighborhood kids. Ride my bike around town. Play in the park on the swingsets/monkey bars/ carousel. Hide and Seek in the twilight hours, untl our parents called us in for dinner. Southern California in the late 1960s/early 1970s.

The name Lloyd is Welsh. A slightly Anglicized version is Floyd.
The double L in Welsh would represent a sound more like HL as one would pronounce the LL at the same time blowing a stream of air past the sides of the tongue.
Thus a single L would not do.
Aaron has a Semitic origin. It is thought to be a Hebrew borrowing from Egyptian, where it was pronounced Aharon. The Hebrews may have shortened the pronunciation to simply be a glottal stop and the vowel sound. Since spelling out names from one alphabet to another is fraught with issues of varying lettering systems and orthography, one tends to end up with an approximation. For instance, see all the English spellings for modern Middle Eastern or East Asian names.
