Home Grown Terrorist - The American Farmer!

The excellent film documentary, KING CORN investigates the pervasive and devastating roll that corn plays in the American diet. This cheap, over-produced cash crop, that is used for ingredients in a multitude of unhealthy food products, contributes directly to an obesity epidemic that is killing more citizens than those pesky foreign terrorists could ever hope to kill.
And if you don't believe it...

THIS JUST IN!
(Nov. 1) -- There is more evidence than ever that a person who weighs too much is more likely to develop cancer, a landmark report said Wednesday.
An international panel of experts reviewed more than 7,000 large-scale studies and spent five years developing the report (www.dietandcancerreport.org).

Excess body fat increases the risk of cancer of the colon, kidney, pancreas, esophagus and uterus as well as postmenopausal breast cancer, the report says.

"This was a much larger impact than even the researchers expected," says Karen Collins, a cancer institute nutrition adviser. "People forget body fat is not an inert glob that we are carrying around on the waistline and thighs. It's a metabolically active tissue that produces substances in the body that promote the development of cancer."

--The evidence linking red meat intake (beef, pork and lamb) to colorectal cancer is more convincing than it was a decade ago, the report says. It advises limiting red meat to 18 ounces of cooked meat a week. The cancer risk is minimal for people who eat that amount, but beyond that the risk increases, Collins says.
--Every 1.7 ounces of processed meat consumed a day increases the risk of colorectal cancer by 21%.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Over production of Corn = Cheap food + red meat - minus self control + lack of exercise = Cancer + Death.

THIS JUST IN! Vice President Al Gore on 30 Rock, nails it!

I'll get around to "Home Grown Terrorist-The American Farmer".../:]

But, for right now, this'll do..

"contributes directly to an obesity epidemic that is killing more citizens than those pesky foreign terrorists could ever hope to kill."

Typical, liberal, irresponsible, twisted logic, fact manipulating, SPIN!!

Nobody is forced to eat more than they should. I've yet to have any food ever force its' way into my mouth. It's called personal responsibility. It involves choices and the freedom thereof. And the maturity and wisdom to make the right choice.

Shoes4Industry said...

Nice try.

Shoes4Industry said...

Well it looks like "maturity and wisdom" are in short supply in this country, especially in the Whitehouse.

Lee said...

So, let me get this straight. Because Americans eat cheap food, red meat, lack self-control, lack self-responsibility, & don't exercise makes the American farmers terrorists???!!!

YOU are one SICK puppy! BUT, a typical liberal one. Always blaming someone else.

Shoes4Industry said...

They are part of the chain of profiteers exploiting and damaging the health of the American public.

Pinko Commie Talk!!

Shoes4Industry said...

No, just the Truth.

Get on board!

Gus said...

Speaking of Welfare, what say we get read of all farm price supports?

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

1% feeds the other 99%....sounds like terrorism to me.

Shoes4Industry said...

Depends on WHAT they are feeding the 99%. Poison is poison.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Stop eating...

shoes4industry said...

Again, you miss the point.

Stop eating crap.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

I'll stop eating crap when you stop spewing it...

shoes4industry said...

It's your funeral!

Lee said...

Shoes, you obsess over global warming and now food but not the REAL threat - terrorism. You are the one that needs to "get on board."

shoes4industry said...

OK, Prove it.

How are you threatened by terrorism?
How many terrorist attacks have occurred in your city or where ever you live?

shoes4industry said...

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

That's the whole point...geezuss...

Lee said...

There haven't been any in my particular city but ONE 9/11 was ONE TOO MANY!

I'm not selfish to think if it doesn't happen where I live I don't care. One doesn't have to live in the particular place where a terrorist might strike to be affected. They will do enough damage (wherever it is done) that will affect people all over this country.

If terror attacks only happened in this country, maybe you would have an argument that the govt. is trying to scare us. BUT the terrorists have struck all over the world. Take off the blinders.
Get over the fact that Bush is the president and his administration has so far done a decent job against attacks since 9/11.

On another note: A little tid-bit I just recently read in the newspaper -

In the last SEVEN presidential elections, NO Democrat has WON a MAJORITY of the popular vote (although Clinton & Gore won pluralities). Clinton FAILED to WIN a MAJORITY despite running as an incumbent during a time of great prosperity against a weak candidate. Foreign policy - a Democratic weakness since the McGovern candidacy in 1972 -wasn't an issue in Clinton's two elections.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Algore couldn't even win his home state...shows how "popular" he is/was.

shoes4industry said...

We failed to mention that eating MEAT is also the leading cause of GLOBAL WARMING! The Methane gas created by the cattle feedlots contributes as much or more great house gas then all the carbon dioxide. This is all made possible by the production of cheap CORN feed.

So they are no only Killing Americans they are destroying the atmosphere...

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

LMAO!! Typical Goreon Moron drivel.

shoes4industry said...

Researchers at the University of Chicago compared the global warming impact of meat eaters with that of vegetarians and found that the average American diet – including all food processing steps – results in the annual production of an extra 1.5 tons of CO2-equivalent (in the form of all greenhouse gases) compared to a no-meat diet. Researchers Gidon Eshel and Pamela Martin concluded that dietary changes could make more difference than trading in a standard sedan for a more efficient hybrid car, which reduces annual CO2 emissions by roughly one ton a year.

Home Grown Idiot-The American Vegan...

Red meat causes GW...what a bunch of bullshit.

shoes4indstry said...

Look it up, it's there.

Lee said...

Just curious. Where have MoneySmith, Nicole and all your other loyal fans disappeared to?

moneysmith said...

I'm right here, lee. Did you miss me?

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

hmmmm...and all this time I figgered you were out on the farm harvesting tofu...

moneysmith said...

"30 Rock" rocks! But I prefer to think of him as President Al Gore. It makes the trolls squeal louder than usual.

Lee said...

Sure you STILL prefer to THINK(?) of Gore as president - STILL DELUSIONAL, STILL IN DENIAL, STILL NOT BEING ABLE TO ACCEPT DEFEAT.

And the only loud squealing you hear is the one coming from YOUR mouth and all the other Gore Sore Losers.

It's been 6 years - GIVE IT UP!

Shoes4Industry said...

6 years? hmmmm

Lee said...

6 years? HMMMM! Thanks for clearing that up Shoes.That's right the whinning has gone on even longer than 6 years.

LifeBeginsAt200MPH said...

Ya' gotta' understand Lee, these yahoos don't even know how the Electoral College works...let alone the fact that we live in a Republic and not a Democracy.

They are also masters of manipulation and twisting statements and aficionados of promoting The Big Lie aka Herr Goebbels.

It doesn't matter what the subject matter is. Everything that has anything to do with Hetero White Adult Males is Evil.

They're believers in the "everybody is a Victim of the white man" Syndrome. The more insane the better. The KKK is Blackwater. Bush/Cheney caused the Cal fires through GW, Katrina was GWB/FEMA's fault, there are no Terrorists, and all the other BS theories they come up with.

Shoes4Industry said...

As that putz Bill Maher said:
"Ask your doctor if PAXIL is right for you."

Lee said...

Note that Shoes did not deny anything you wrote LB, about "victim of WM syndrome"?

The Paxil thing was the best he could to.

Shoes4Industry said...

Racists!

EXCUSES!
