Good reasoning, Cleo. Every time there was a hunt in early times, there must have been a lot of dead or injured cave men as a result. Why all the thumbs down?

Many killers, when asked why they did what they did, will answer "I don't know". A gem of a movie about this was titled "Frailty" It has a great cast and a hole-proof plot. In this case, GOD was telling who to kill.

The comment of "what you don't eat", makes no sense. Only what you do eat can affect your health. I think people should just eat olives.....what makes them think only the oil is useful? Nuts with their protein and great oils are probably better for your health than olive oil. If anyone lived on a diet of veggies, fruit and nuts, seeds, they probably would live as healthy a life as is possible, from food. Nuts, especially, are a ready to eat food that requires no treatment (like olives do) to be edible.

The problem we have as humans, is the fact that the prison we are in (our bodies) is so tight around us, that we consider it "ourselves". Only people who have had "near death experiences" or have experienced "out of body travels",can really KNOW that the body and the spirit within it are two separate identities. It is the difference between experiencing, versus hearing, or believing something.
There is a large difference between knowing the pleasure of a wonderful experience, compared to hearing about it and trying to feel the pleasure. This is the reason for out lives....the feelings of our lives. To me it is not difficult to believe that if we can pop out of a vagina and be born to this experience, why can we not die our way into another experience? As far as
science is concerned; most of the Universe is composed of "Dark Matter", which is what science knows the LEAST ABOUT.
Read about Robert Monroe.

Is not accurately stating the kind of meat inside a box considered "mislabeling" or "lying"?. The easy solution is to buy your own meat and cook for yourself. Don't buy filleted fish...buy the whole thing with the head on. The high priced Sushi people pay for, does not necessarily contain the kind of fish it is advertised to be. Even things like bottled lemon juice can contain large percentages of water, which leads to big profits....the only reason business exists. The bottles of expensive oils also are suspicious; hard to identify the oils by taste.

The good news is that if they keep increasing their profits yearly, they will have aggravation in their personal and business lives, and will probably suffer some terrible illness before it kills them. They will discover they are only humans like the rest of us.

A self made fortune does not exist. To be self made, the person must invent,supply the materials needed, manufacture,distribute and buy the item himself. No workers and no customers except himself. Billionaires need an army of low paid workers and overcharged customers. Self made indeed.......the person would also have to have created himself.

They didn't ask the most important question; would you rather marry an ugly, poor, irritating man you don't love, or a handsome, rich and kind man you don't love?

On U tube, the inventor of the battery for the first GM electric, said he gave GM a battery capable of 200 miles between recharges, but they never used it. He also was almost finished on a 300 mile rechargeable, but GM never used either one. The man is now about 93. So as always, any company will only do what they can do to make the most profit possible.....and it will stay that way until the public is much smarter than they now are. What the car makers could actually make if they wanted to, will remain unknown to us.

It only shows how great the old-time athletes were, training on booze and broads. It also shows that these "experts" in reading body language are total frauds. Remember how they all shouted "He is lying about not doping" when he made is frequent denials? Neither do I, because none of them did.

Combine this with bad dietary habits and you have the reason why Americans die younger than same age people in other developed nations. I saw no t.v. news reports on the fact that Americans under 50 yrs. have a higher death rate, or that even older Americans suffered earlier deaths and worse general health than other equal countries. Worse general health for the under 50s also.
