I received the below Thomas Jefferson quote in an e-mail recently:
"If people let the government decide what foods they eat and what medicines they take, their bodies will soon be in as sorry a state as the souls who live under tyranny."
Thomas Jefferson (1778)
It is my opinion that if we don’t take matters into our own hands, the label of "sick men and women of the Americas" will be apropos.
By taking matters into our own hands I mean: we grow our own food, have our own milk cows, etc., or we will be made ill by the processed food manufacturers.
The cattle ranchers, as a business, need to return to an existence where they raise cattle without the tampering by way of cloning and the cutting of corners to make more money, such as by using growth hormones and antibiotics. They need to grow the animals in a healthy way in a healthy environment. Just let a sick cow get well using its own systems in a healthy environment!
What happened to the free market?
