PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.
Calalily, I think a great deal of the article is quite sound, but some of the conclusions the writer is drawing seemed forced at best. It's a mixed bag. Conspiracy theories like this make me uneasy, but I have no use for the Susan B. Komen Foundation even aside from whether or not this is totally accurate, due to their stance on Planned Parenthood.
Just found it interesting, not necessarily agreeing with all the writer had to say.
Everywhere one goes they take x-rays: the dentist wants them every time I get my teeth cleaned, the dr wants them yearly for mamograms, orthopedic dr wants them for arthritis...I think it's too much radiation. I tell my dentist now he can take limited x-rays every 18 mos to 2 yrs!
I have always told my dentist that if he sees something that he needs to check out, x-rays are fine, but not on a routine basis. I wouldn't let them x-ray my kids or grandkids, either, unless it was for a specific reason.
I am suspicious of conspiracy theories also. But the Monsanto problem is bigger than that. Some sort of public action is necessary to prevent the denurtuizing of our basic food supply.
The problem is not just cdonspiracy--but public information, and public action and what is necessary to "just say no" and quit messing with our food.
