To Break Frames To Start Frames


This is to ask why people are so intrested in e-coli? The digestive bacteria (like Acidophilus) that help us use food and that (seem to) keep pathegens like e-coli in check are more important. I have more links and a proposal that goes with these Appendixes. What am I after? I am a student that is trying to stay in school and also a writer, looking for someplace that is intrested in my writing!

Some one dropped a note in my mail box saying that Texas has tried to put in a law making it a crime to be compensated for giving nutricinal advice. So, could I be sued if I were paid for asking some of my questions since - they might be considered 'Advice'? That note has to be a urban legend, it is against free speech.

"Adding antibiotics to livestock feed can lead to antibiotic resistance in foodborne pathogens." " That can make cases of food poisoning difficult to treat of even deadly." "prevalence of antibiotic-resistant enterococci bacteria in chickens declined from 82% to 12% in three years."

      Looks like this is World Wide.
      Weird that people are pussy footing around. If you are going to play by the rules that someone else is citing and not think around those 'rules'. Put it down to the lowest common denominator! Then follow the money trail...
      What is fertilizer? What is in this 'fertilizer'? Is this 'fertilizer', fertile? A food slander law that says if farmers lose money, international sanctions. Seems as if the US is losing money over-all. A bit here, a bit there.

"Too much sugar, a bad diet, certain oral contraceptives, aspirin, corticosteriods, yeast, and too much streess…enabling the harmful bacteria to flourish, thereby causing putrefaction and the manufacturing of toxic products."

The first lawsuits against the American A-bomb program were not over radiation, but over fluoride damage, the documents show." "'…shows that evidence of adverse health effect from fluoride was censored by the US Atomic Energy commisssion…" "Human exposure to fluoride has mushroomed since World War II, due not only to fluoridated water and toothpaste but to environmental pollution by major industries, from aluminium to pesticides, where fluoride is a critical industrial chemical as well as a waste by-product.'" "Animal studies which Mullenix and co-workers conducted at Forsyth in the early 1990s indicated that fluoride was a powerful central nervous system (CNS) toxin and might adversely affect human brain functioning even at low doses." "Today, news that scientists from the A-bomb program secretly shaped and guided the Newburgh fluoridation experiment and studied the citizen's blood and tissue samples is greeted with incredulity."
