...can anyone with a concern for the environment
or respect for the human body buy shares of one of
the most horrific company in the world? If Monsanto
carries out its plans, none of the food we eat in the
future will be made by mother nature, it will all be
genetically engineered by Monsanto. This is so very dangerous
I can't believe people aren't outraged. Monsanto is
manufacturing the future where there is no prevention of
disease (can't make a profit on something that hasn't
occured, like sickness, if the population is healthy);
there is only the "treatment" of symptoms with stronger
and more devistating chemicals that will, over time
and with continued consumption, change the very
make-up of our bodies, minds and our children's bodies
and minds as well (not to mention create more
powerful and resistant strains of viruses and bacteria --
which will infect animals and plants as well, creating
the additional need to immunize/treat plants and
animals with more Monsanto-made solutions). Monsanto
claims to love the environment (as in a recent ad in the
NYTimes) - but if it did, it wouldn't destroy it with the
introduction of structurally (genetically) altered species.
These species do not fit into the balanced cycle of
nature. No one can know the intergenerational effects of
such synthetic disruptions as these, not only to the
human body but to the natural world as well. I urge
everyone to think about these issues and ivestigate what
this company is really doing. Do you want to be part
of it? There are so many other companies
contributing constructive things to society while making
massive profits for their stockholders. Dump Monsanto so
they'll stop dumping on us. And no, I do not hold any
positions on MTC.
I never thought I'd ever agree with
Nancy Reagan on anything, but I can't say this more
strongly: Just say no to drugs.
A problem with a post-industrial society is that
many people don't have to worry about where their next
meal comes from. If those persons viewed their
existance as a struggle, which it still is, they would be
much less likely to give animals human attributes, and
would worry much more about their survival
These same people, if given their way, will have their
dog registered to vote. I suppose you vegans don't
get a guilty conscience when you kill bugs on the
windshields of your cars, or do you?
You're just beginning to
find out that this guy is screwed up. He is
hemicephalic. If I were you I wouldn't respond on the board.
It's a waste of time. He is still in the 19th century
selling snake oil and honey.
Wish you a Happy Fourth.
I always seem to be out of sync with you but I
recently changed my diet after 3 years of religiously
counting every calorie, fat-gram, protein and fiber
because I had been putting on weight, in spite of aerobic
exercise 3X/wk, walking up to 25mi/wk and lifting weights.
My cholesterol level was 220 even with a diet of
less than 20% of my caloric intake from fat.
switched out of desperation to a low carb diet and now eat
milk, cheese, eggs, bacon, red meat, fish and chicken.
small amounts of fruit (mainly
berries), no white bread, rice, or
what??? I have lost weight and my cholesterol is 160. Go
For some high cholesterol is self-induced.
However, there are many people with inherited high
cholesterol that cannot be modified by diet. My experience
Mark, indicates that such generalizations are
my statement about genetic defects. Fishingfreak
claimed that high cholesterol is caused by a genetic
defect. I said if this is so, then "why do people with a
"Western diet" have a disproportionate amount of genetic
defects?!" What I meant was high cholesterol does not really
exist in countries who do not have our meat-centered,
high-fat, low fiber diet. So if "we" have all the high
cholesterol then, if as fishingfreak says, we have all the
genetic defects (since we have all the high
My point was that high cholesterol is not primarily
caused by genetic defects, but by diet. Certain people
might have a genetic predisposition to develop high
cholesterol, but in most cases won't develop it if their diet
is plant-basd and if they exercise. If high
cholesterol was caused by genetic defect, then more people
around the world would develop it. UNLESS, as I
facetiously said, we have all the genetic defects!
