    The belief that life begins at conception is just that --- a "belief." It is certainly not a fact. In order to have any validity, court decisions must be based on facts, not beliefs.

    It seems to me that those restaurants refusing to send obviously sick employees home are breaking health code laws!! Why would ANY state want to overrule such laws?? Has this country become so corrupt, that the rights of companies/corporations have become more important than those of each individual?? What has happened to our legislators?? Have they turned themselves into commodities, which corporations can buy and sell?? We need strong legislation to protects our citizens' rights -- not our corporations' to break the laws!!

    When enough customers get sick after eating fast food, the "market" will correct the problem, just as
    the tobacco industry was eliminated once it was found that it was killing millions (worldwide) per year.

    Let the market work: it will take care of the sick worker problem just as it got rid of cigarettes.

    Typical intellectually lazy Right Winger, don't like what I hear deny it and demand someone else research it. Then you can deny it with some Fox ignorance.

    My husband's cousin died from this [confirmed diagnosis] 20 years ago. I find the comments about medical transmission very interesting as well. Disclaimers I have read for years state that MCD lives in the CNS and connective tissues of the cows.
    Well here's a little known fact for you: if you are having a bone graft : spinal ,jaw bone or otherwise, please note that the standard of care in the USA [at least in the sinus lift I needed] is a Bovine Collagen Sponge matrix infused with Bone Morphogenic Protein as a growth stimulant. If they tried to sterilize the sponge it would melt and the BMP is genetically modified in Hamster Cells[because hamsters & guinea pigs grow teeth non stop] This product is implanted inches from your brain [or spinal cord in back surgery] and has been shown to MIGRATE to a forming fetus, kidneys,& liver or ..... Long term European studies have shown it & calcium biphosphinate [heavily infused w/toxic doses of fluoride] products to grow bone slightly faster than cadaver bone [more expensive & highly sterilized] but also fails around five years so you get to do your expensive implants all over again. Not only a racket for the dentists but may expose you needlessly to bovine & hamster diseases. I went to Costa Rica & got better cheaper care with safer ingredients.
