When I am in a dog park or on the street and see a dog, it only takes two seconds for me to recognize a kibble fed dog from the one that eats raw or cooked wholesome food.
I often catch myself struggling between...
Yes, I know I know, I should be doing other things than getting all fiery about the recent E.Coli scare. But I can’t help it. There is no way I can be untouched by the recent media propaganda about the European outbreak of E.Coli.
CBC radio has proclaimed that large number, exactly 18 people died as of today, from this aggressive strain of E. Coli. While this itself is a tragedy, it is nothing in comparison to thousands and likely more people dying every day as a result of drug side-effects, exposure to chemicals in the environment, cigarettes and junk food.
I can’t help myself thinking: “What a crazy system!”
Why don’t we blame an organic produce growers and distributors? They are evil! They do not want to use GMO foods, they are against pesticides, imagine! Organic producers have come up with the crazy idea that this planet is worth saving and it is more valuable than stash of cash in an off shore account! Ridiculous!
What frustrates me and other likeminded people is that this crazy cycle of destructive “legalized criminal activity” kills millions and no one is responsible.
Now, when I have described this bleak picture, I want to yell out loud: “People, it is not all lost! We can make difference. We can reduce the use of drugs by whooping 90% in veterinary and human medicine. I have seen it in my practice, it is possible. We just have to learn more and keep learning and be feisty for the sake of our children, families and this planet.
I hope that the Canucks will win Stanley cup because their winning may inspire us and win the real life battle against LEGALIZED CRIME.
I am looking forward to hearing your comments.
