(update: now a recent Stanford study has linked pesticides and air pollutants to autism, adhd, and other once considered genetic ailments- since pregnant women have been found to contain 70x the concentration of these dangerous chemicals than typical people do- and the study also found that autism is about two thirds environment and one third genetic- which would be why we’ve seen the rates of these socalled genetic conditions rise 30x over the past decade!

 
The thing we were talking about taller being better– may not be true. Im not sure this isnt due to hormones being put in our foods– Ive talked to pediatricians who think that our generation’s thyroid problems can be traced back to the crap the FDA lets food companies put in food. Also, rates of cancer, diabetes and heart disease are much higher. I kind of think you feel as I do that as a society we are going backwards rather than forwards. GMO, sugar substitutes, growth hormones and antibiotics in our food is really going to have deleterious effects on us, especially in the long run. There are no existent studies on these chemicals over decades of consumption and what we have seen in studies on rats shows that even in short term usage at very high levels they can cause brain problems, hormonal issues and even cancer. But you know the FDA-drug industry meat train needs its passengers LOL

BTW pesticides in our food were recently linked to leukemia, I think it was the first study that has ever linked pesticides to cancer– they’ve already been linked to neurological conditions like Parkinson’s.

Dude– you have to look for something online. I was shocked when I read it and saw it. Farming states like Minnesota and Iowa are making it ILLEGAL for workers to record the bad working conditions on animal farms (like chicken and cattle farms.) Im amazed they can do this– and it looks like Monsanto basically owns the whole state of Iowa. There are laws getting ready to be passed in like 7 other states that would make it a felony for workers to video tape bad working conditions and unsanitary conditions at farms.

WHO ARE OUR LAWS MEANT TO PROTECT ANYWAY? It’s stuff like this that makes me want to burn the flag and to say to hell with patriotism…. looks like the downfall of the Roman Empire reloaded is happening around us.

I would fit in really well with the 60s counter culture– those must have been awesome times lol. People today are just lazy and don’t stand up for what they believe in and let government and corporations run roughshod all over them.

Department of Justice is running an investigation on the guy who said there was no link between vaccines and autism because they found out he took a huge payoff from the drug industry– but they said it has no connection to the validity of his results LOL. The other thing which was interesting is that a federal judge has blasted the USDA because the USDA said it doesn’t have enough money to regulate biotech companies like Monsanto (where is our tax money going?) and is going to let them regulate themselves. Hmmm, I wonder how well that will work out….. The USDA is acting suspiciously like the FDA does with drug companies.

Once again I ask…. IS THERE REALLY ANYTHING IN THIS COUNTRY TO BE PROUD OF? LOL

Obama is as much of a hypocrit as Bush was (the dude is hiring all industry insiders for his posts in the government, there really is no system of checks and balances anymore)…. there has been no real change…. our country is still a plutocracy.

our society is a bunch of home grown sheeple that doesnt see the twin cancers of government and large greedy corporations
they mindlessly cheer at osama’s death, which while a good thing, doesn’t change the fact that our society is in a steep decline and the military
isnt going to be able to do anything about it
its a cancer that started from within society and guns and simple violence wont do **** to stop it– actually it will just make it worse
people are just really dumb and dont see that long term problems CANT have short term solutions

Yea I knew about that. It’s scary the **** that goes on. Do you ever watch Dirty Jobs? The host goes on farms all the time and you see animals caged up like it’s no big deal. One time Mike was in a hen house type of thing w/ thousands of turkeys. His first job was to get all the dead turkeys that died during the night. There were about 10-20 of them. He asked the farmer why they die in the middle of the night and the redneck said that they just drop dead from time to time. Yea, I wonder why? LOL. The farmer then said that 10-20 roosters die every single night and that first thing each morning he grabs them before other turkeys get sick. 

Speaking of farming, did you know about the Corps of Engineers blowing up a 2 mile levee to save Cairo, Illinois? Missouri didn’t want them to do it and it went to the Supreme Court. The SC used some BS technicality from the early 1900’s to rule in favor of Illinois. So now there are billions in damages to farmland. But at least some redneck dying town might be spared. 

The CoE is a joke. These are the same idiots that dump toxins into streams into North Carolina, introduced non-native fish (trout) and had the honor of both discovering a new species of fish and declaring it extinct at the same time. Good job guys!

It’s not recent. This was back in the 40’s and 50’s. They tried to introduce trout into the mountain streams of NC near the AT to boost the local economy and get people to go fishing. But fish call madtoms were eating all the eggs before they had a chance to grow. So the CoE dumped chemicals into the streams that were safe for trout but deadly to the madtoms. It turned out that these madtoms were region specific and localized to 1 or 2 streams in the area. So they wiped out like 10 sub-species of madtoms. They didn’t realize it until after biologists saw what happened but by then it was too late.

Oh and no one bothered to fish for the trout so it didn’t help the ecomony. LOL.

The CoE is inept. Back in the 80’s, they cut down the budget and laid off a bunch employees. Then later that summer they spent $500,000 on a party for the National Forest Service.

the one good thing about the pharmaceutical industry is when they do something wrong as happens a great deal, you can always sue 😉 I love how Merck got sued over forging Vioxx research and of course the Avandia scandal was well covered. And then there’s Astra Zeneca and Crestor muhaha. I love when these tyrannical corporations have to pay 🙂 And that doesn’t even include the biggest tyrant of them all, Monsanto, which loses billions of dollars every year in lawsuits for poisoning the environment (ever heard of PCBs in Anniston, Alabama or what they do in third world countries?) Yeah, I investigate and bust all these companies and am proud for doing so– someone has to fight the good fight, since the FDA and USDA are in collusion with these companies since they hire people on their board of directors from the very companies they are supposed to be regulating!

And let’s not even mention how the drug industry has been testing its wares in third world countries or how the CIA tested psychotropic drugs in New England on unsuspecting mental patients in the 70s or how radiation experiments were performed in the 50s on unsuspecting citizens or the japanese americans who were placed in concentration camps and how Blackwater is abusing children in Iraq and merely had to change their names to XE and now works for Monsanto. Or how the FDA fails to regulate drugs, hormones, pesticides and other chemicals in our food because the very people responsible for putting them there work for both the drug companies and the FDA! Merck’s chairman is on the FDA board and doesn’t have to answer for the bribing and threatening of doctors in Australia for Merck drugs they would not sell? It’s horrifying to think that this is all a microcosm of our society today so we just need to look at ourselves for the reason why these people are in power today! It’s the same old poison of greed, power and selfishness at play here and we need to make those in power see that they need to fear us rather than the other way around!

Of course now Japan is irradiating its own people and the government is lying to its own people– gee, I wonder who they learned that from?  And the teacher is changing the radiation limits for “safe” exposure– now that’s subjectivity for you!  Objectively, the safe radiation exposure is ZERO!  Or how the FDA fails to regulate drugs, hormones, pesticides and other chemicals in our food (not only that, their safety studies are a joke because only take into consideration short term exposure, not what happens over many years, which we are learning can cause an accumulated build up of chemicals with toxic results,like with Aspartame, Saccharin and Splenda, for instance), because the very people responsible for putting them there work for both the drug companies and the FDA!
