How could it be possible to even debate whether or not to share that information? If your child were diabetic, would you not tell them? Or if your child had lupus, would you not tell them? Why is celiac disease different?
People in professions without ongoing customer relationships have less of an incentive to behave well. And unless you're a real estate investor with deep pockets, you're unlikely to be a repeat customer -- so an agent isn't automatically losing repeat business if they screw you over.

Deforestation is one of the fastest ways that environments are changing dramatically, while climate change is creating vast fast changes on a global scale.

Many Americans believe that we are extraordinarily open in welcoming "the needy and oppressed." But the refugee crisis in Syria, followed by the attacks in Paris and California, has brought out the worst in some people. It's time for another private sector initiative to help solve the refugee crisis.

Is there any cause truly worth dying, let alone killing, for? Life, perhaps, but liberty is just one path to lead life.
