    • My passion in life is human health issues.  The multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical companies in this country is killing us along with chemical plants in our it relates directly to the foods we eat, the water we drink and even the toys our children play with.  

      It’s great for you to get that information out there because I, myself try and share as much of it as I can with my friends and family so that they can become aware.  We may not be able to help everyone but if we can help one person and they help another person and so on, then maybe the message will get across and our government will get off their A@% and start to make the changes necessary to educate all Americans on the real issues facing the Health Crisis of today.

    • I agree!  We are killing ourselves through ‘progress‘.  It is not just the government.  We as a society want more.  We want it easier and faster.  Businesses and government are just giving what we have been asking for.  

      Now is the time for us to educate ourselves that more and bigger is not necessarily better...and it is killing us!
