I can appreciate (to a certain degree) zoos and 'water zoos' that take good care of animals and let people view them in a large natural setting, but once you cram animals into small spaces or make the animals perform, it becomes sickening and you want to spread the word that animals should not be forced to entertain us. Animals should be treated humanely, even the ones people are going to eat.
Ideally, you'd raise your own free-range animals and kill them in a more humane way if you are going to eat meat. Life is murder and plants are alive. Whether you eat plants or animals, you are killing something so you can continue to live. It's a necessary evil. Strapping chickens to your feet and riding them around your backyard would be an unnecessary evil.
Kids need to learn that animals (and people) are not our personal playthings that we can abuse for our entertainment. If that sinks in, they might turn into kinder teens and good-hearted adults. When you refuse to take your kids to circuses that force enslaved animals to perform, you're doing them a favor, not punishing them.
Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I’ve been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.
Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn’t bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can’t tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.
If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. Most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.
Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from surroundair.com. A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.
Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground.
Hydrofracking is bad for you, your family, your friends, and the environment.
