“So much of the area near my home and my mom's home has already burned. That photo above is the area I grew up. So sad to see so many beautiful trees burned and empty hillsides. They estimate that we will have to be more concerned with mudslides for the next 3 to 5 years.”

“If we eat more of the healthy foods and less of the unhealthy foods, there would be even more healthy options in the future. Manufactures will make what is profitable for them. If people don't buy the junk they wont make it.”

“I agree wholeheartedly - F&F number 126 from the UK

Perhaps an even more effective solution is for as many people as possible source their own food as locally as possible, cook it and eat it with their families.

Manufactured food contains a lot of things that you wouldn't normally put on your plate, at least not in the quantities "hidden" within to enhance taste and appearance.

A personal solution I have found to have made a great difference to my world..

“In regards to the prices, theoretically, in areas where it truly is legal, the prices should go down over time. That is why many in the marijuana industry does not really want it legalized. By allowing medicinal marijuana stores in California but not really fully legalizing it, it allows them to keep their margins much higher. I have no desire to use it but I would like the prices to become dirt cheap so that the illegal activity will stop this area and hopefully reduce the violence it creates in places like Mexico, as well as reducing wasted hours on legal enforcement from keeping it illegal.”

“There is a lot more to it than what this article says. For example, using a silk pillow case is not important. What is more important is using bedding and mattresses that breathe and do not release toxins. Large mattress manufactures use chemical fire retardants and toxic chemicals in their mattresses. The bedroom should be a place to get away from those chemicals.”

“Why should everyone have to adapt to what you want? Can you at least try...just a little bit...to understand what it would be like to be transgender in this World? A little compassion and empathy would be nice. It does not harm anyone. There were no complaints from other members.”

“Of course there were complaints from women. Women do NOT want males in our showers, dressing rooms, restrooms, etc. We complain and complain but we do it discreetly because we don't want some crazy dude coming after us when we're naked and vulnerable.”

“Sexuality is inherent, not 'taught', as many would have us believe. Are breeders 'taught' to be breeders?
I get your point, simply wish to countermand this silly notion of inherent nature being somehow 'taught' to juveniles. Hatred and homophobia: THAT is taught certainly. If one is secure in their own sexuality, what need have they to hate one who differs? NONE.”

“It's not being banned from outside the stores... the retail outlets themselves are saying we don't want to irritate our customers by selling this issue. Pure market forces. RS has a right to free speech but they don't have a right to be placed in any retail outlet they want, the stores are simply exercising their rights. Pure democracy.”
