"If you eat too much of this food, you become sick and also FATAFAT. And no amount of FATAFAT pills will help you."

‘Stop taking painkillers if you want to breed vultures’

For thousands of years in parts of India, they've used a funeral system that relies on the sun and carrion birds to dispose of dead bodies. See here.

These ferocious birds, a kind of vulture living there for thousands of years, have almost all been poisoned of late - by the pain killer drugs found in the bodies of the dead.
"The nation-wide decline of vultures has been linked to diclofenac - a drug used in a variety of medicines including painkillers - that causes kidney failure in birds."
If the painkiller drugs in our bodies cause fatal liver failure in these big birds - animals that have been recycling dead bodies for centuries - think of what those pain killers are likely doing to YOUR body.

Life forces were created to dispose of and transform living things now dead (including our dead bodies). You know, to make room, recycle, and clean up the place for the new.
But now those clean-up crews are being fatally poisoned by our own (dead) bodies. How can the living things of earth create new, healthy life?
Are today's pain killer drugs really worth all that?

Guess What's In Your Canned Soup...

And tuna, and juice, and...

Consumer Reports. Tests of canned foods, including soups, juice, tuna, and green beans, have found that almost all of the 19 name-brand foods tested contain measurable levels of Bisphenol A (BPA).
BPA is bad. It's in the soup can liners. And it's been linked to "a wide array of health effects including reproductive abnormalities, heightened risk of breast and prostate cancers, diabetes, and heart disease."
Federal guidelines currently put the daily upper limit of safe exposure at 50 micrograms of BPA per kilogram of body weight. But that's based on old studies...More here.
My take? There should be ZERO TOLERANCE for BPA in foodstuffs big food sells us. Don't we have enough exposure to toxins in our environment? Why would we allow anything more than ZERO BPA in soup can liners? Think of your kid slurping up BPA.
Of course you should buy fresh. And stuff in glass containers. But still...

Here's the story.
