Did you know that all the grains used to feed the livestock could feed a population of 8 billion people, and could solve the world's starvation problem? Lowering meat consumption or going vegetarian/vegan could solve so many health problems we have in this country, especially the obesity epidemic. Did you also know that the San Joaquin Valley ranks as one of the most polluted areas in the whole country not only due to the major freeways/highways that run through it, but also do to the methane gas the many cows release when they fart? Pretty gross if you ask me. From all the knowledge I have gained thus far from my formal education and from other very knowledgeable educated people in the health care industry, I am happy that I am a vegetarian not only for health benefits but for the beneficence of myself and the future populations of this world. Knowledge is power. Do research. Talk to people. Read a book. Many of the increases in diseases in this country are mainly due to the food that we consume. Chronic diseases begin formatting in your early 20's, many people wont see the effects of their choices till later on in life. As for my self, I plan on taking care of my body. The choice is yours. Read labels of processed foods you eat that come in packages. Most of the chemical preservatives and artificial ingredients Ive made in my chemistry labs (before studying nursing I was a Chemistry major). Boy have those chemistry classes opened my eyes...

Methane and Vegetarianism
"By far the most important non-CO2 greenhouse gas is methane, and the number one source of methane worldwide is animal agriculture.
Methane is responsible for nearly as much global warming as all other non-CO2 greenhouse gases put together. Methane is 21 times more powerful a greenhouse gas than CO2. While atmospheric concentrations of CO2 have risen by about 31% since pre-industrial times, methane concentrations have more than doubled. Whereas human sources of CO2 amount to just 3% of natural emissions, human sources produce one and a half times as much methane as all natural sources. In fact, the effect of our methane emissions may be compounded as methane-induced warming in turn stimulates microbial decay of organic matter in wetlands—the primary natural source of methane.
With methane emissions causing nearly half of the planet's human-induced warming, methane reduction must be a priority. Methane is produced by a number of sources, including coal mining and landfills—but the number one source worldwide is animal agriculture. Animal agriculture produces more than 100 million tons of methane a year. And this source is on the rise: global meat consumption has increased fivefold in the past fifty years, and shows little sign of abating. About 85% of this methane is produced in the digestive processes of livestock, and while a single cow releases a relatively small amount of methane, the collective effect on the environment of the hundreds of millions of livestock animals worldwide is enormous. An additional 15% of animal agricultural methane emissions are released from the massive "lagoons" used to store untreated farm animal waste, and already a target of environmentalists' for their role as the number one source of water pollution in the U.S.
The conclusion is simple: arguably the best way to reduce global warming in our lifetimes is to reduce or eliminate our consumption of animal products. Simply by going vegetarian (or, strictly speaking, vegan), , , we can eliminate one of the major sources of emissions of methane, the greenhouse gas responsible for almost half of the global warming impacting the planet today."

I have a word for the idiots that call Medicare, one of the most successful Federal programs in history with very little overhead. a ponzi scheme. I have news for you idiots, private insurance is a ponzi scheme, that's why AIG failed. Is health more important than insuring a fucking derivative contract? A government program CANNOT GO BROKE OR BANKRUPT, like a private company can. They can back any program with their full faith and credit that any sovereign entity can. For those that want privatization just look at what happened to all of the 401k programs, now gone in bankruptcy.
Fracking is a huge disaster waiting to happen but we should just accept the words of corporations that they are not poisoning our very future lives by contaminating our ground water that we need to LIVE. There are chemicals in the injection solution that they will not release the contents of but we should just trust them that it isn't deadly even though we know already that some of them are in fact deadly. They drill through the ground water, fracture the shale, siphon off the gas and release methane and all kind of environmental problems. And people talk or less regulation. Sure let's do it, kill ourselves quicker. Corporations do not care if they murder you because by the time it goes to court they will have raped as much profit as they can and the judgement if it comes will be a pittance. AND FRACKING CAUSES EARTHQUAKES.
