Awesome. Given that Brazil, India, China, and Canada are some of the other largest producers of GMOs - and that really the only commercial GMO product in Europe is corn that I know of - this figure just shows how it can't possibly be GMOs responsible for mental disorders since they are so prevalent in various parts of Europe, while far less common in, e.g. China, where GMos are quite common.
Please provide one such peer-reviewed study. lol that "studies of GMOs" section is bullshit. We've had studies now for 20+ years. Nothing. I believe the "mouse" study they are referring to was the thoroughly debunked Seralini paper, which used rats, and was totally sensationalized. see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Séralini_affair for details, though I doubt you actually care enough to bother. ARSEN, why not find me an actual scientific study that has not been retracted that shows health effects of GMOs?
Please link me to the research HBO cited that suggested that GMOs were responsible for mental health issues in this country (lol) edit: and fyi a big part of that is the nature of how government agencies determine if something should be sold... for a lot of food items it is a difference between "has it been demonstrated to be safe" versus "has it been demonstrated to be dangerous." and anyway GMO corn is a major crop in Europe, and tho most of it goes to livestock, the starches from it are big in food production. While the US has higher rates of mental illness than other countries, it is possible that has to do with the nature of the reporting. There are countries other than the US with high mental health illness rates, and some countries have higher rates of antidepressant usage than the US.
for one, transgenic crops have not been on the market for 30 years. for two, there is no evidence of harmful effects of any gmo on the market today that has not been thoroughly refuted/retracted. for three, I think I love you for suggesting GMOs are causing mass shootings. I just... think that is the best thing ever.
This is incorrect - the brothers still maintain that their mother is innocent and did so at that time period, too. At no point in the article do they claim their mother was anything but innocent. They admit their father was a spy, though they question the use of the death penalty on him. See http://www.nytimes.com/2015/08/10/opinion/the-meeropol-brothers-exonerate-our-mother-ethel-rosenberg.html?ref=topics. Given that his accuser has flat out admitted he lied to protect his wife, there is no way anyone can argue that it was not a wrongful conviction. edit: you can read Sobell's interview at http://www.nytimes.com/2008/09/12/nyregion/12spy.html. Given the way in which he refers to Ethel, why do you suspect that the brothers would believe she was guilty now?
Do you include plastic surgery in this etc? I think that people who get gender reassignment surgery do need help - and they actually do typically get it, but help doesn't mean that they wouldn't get the surgery, it just means counseling. Gender dysphoria is a diagnosis in the DSM V I believe, though how long it lasts there is another question
I didn't think you could compel a spouse to surrender information that would implicate their spouse. edit: but I've not read the trial transcripts so I don't know specifically what she said. She may or may not be someone that should be honored, but she was likely wrongfully executed. Even if she did lie under oath, this is not a reason to execute someone, regardless of the nature of the lie. Then again I am not much in favor of the death penalty, so your mileage may vary :p
From everything I've read, Ethel Rosenberg was likely not involved with the espionage, but did not stop it, either.
edit: The point is not whether or not Julius was a spy, but whether or not his wife was, and there is no evidence that still stands that she was involved in espionage. She shouldn't have been given the death penalty. Julius' handler also disputes that he received information on the atomic bomb from Julius and that Ethel had not been a spy, and Khrushchev says he had no direct knowledge of what was shared, so his memoirs are not reliable sources for whether Ethel was involved or not. Greenglass admitted to lying to protect his wife, Sobell's confession also suggests Ethel wasn't involved, though she was aware... is that worthy of an execution? Red scare and all, I guess.
No. It wouldn't. From what I've read, it would add 18 trillion if estimates are correct, all new programs added are simply additional programs and not replacements for current programs, and most importantly, if he did not raise taxes. In what universe do you live in where you think Bernie Sanders isn't going to raise taxes?
