To Spank or not to Spank

One hundred years ago men were allowed by law to 'spank' or otherwise physically punish their wife if they saw fit. As time is passing we are evolving to a point where most can recognize that all types of physical 'punishment' is barbaric, and used by those who do not have the intelligence or patience to guide their children in a more loving, respectful and appropriate manner. There are no excuses, with all the research available nowadays, the communication amongst parents, and the fact that we really are evolving into a more loving and respectful species; it is clear that there is no room for striking children or any human being for that matter. If you want your children to have confidence and respect for others, then you can't treat them like animals. Plain and simple. Any denial of this is just a result of cognitive dissonance

GMO and your health

There are no epidemiological studies investigating potential health effects of GMO food on human health. With no epidemiological studies, claims that “trillions of GMO meals” have been eaten with no ill effects have no scientific basis. Epidemiology is the study of human populations to determine whether something is harmful or beneficial, and is the scientifically accepted means of determining impact on human health
