This is the sort of thing that makes me mad as hell.

The big wigs at the huge chemical and pharmaceutical companies don't give a flying **** about you, or me, the creatures of the world, or the environment. Billions of dollars worth of mass marketing and manipulation creates a society that thinks all of these meds are "needed". People cram meds down their throats for everything from indigestion to having a bad day.

Genetically modified organisms, pharmaceuticals, herbicides and pesticides, chemical and nuclear dumping, etc. etc. All of this crap is coming back to bite us is a very short period of time.

"If all the medicine in the world were thrown into the sea, it would be bad for the fish and good for humanity" O.W> Holmes, Prof. of Med. Harvard University.

Heh, I forget which online newpaper I read it in recently, but apparently downstream from some prison, the snails are breeding like crazy. It seems the mentally ill prisoners are dumping their prozac, its getting into the water and it acts like viagra for snails LOL
