Absolute nonsense. The US meat industry meets or exceeds the
standards for cleanliness, health and sanitation found anywhere in the
world. And if profit projections are important, that would
contradict your comment about wasted meat and needless slaughter, now
wouldn't it ? As for grotesque conditions, that's in the eye of the
beholder. A visit to an abattoir is not a tip toe through the tulips.
A few people faint at the sight of blood. Many people see a thick cut
of rich, red, juicy, prime beef and associate it with life's more pleasurable events.
Would you care to parse that sentence, and then offer some proof that
Europe's meat industry is more humane, or that kosher and organic
food have anything to do with sinus problems?
It's difficult to understand your broken English but you seem to be
saying milk and dairy products were responsible for a wide variety of
your medical problems. Unless you have a shred of proof for this, I
think you owe an apology to dairy farmers everywhere. Yes there is such
thing as an allergy. But an allergy should not be used as a stick with
which to beat an entire industry.
And the moon may be made of green cheese, but that will have
nothing to do with sinus problems EITHER. Once there was a FEVER
Hospital in Dublin. This was at a time when fever was believed to be a
disease. Instead of SYMPTOM of a score of different diseases.
Think of your sinus problems, Fealsamh, whether dripping or clogged,
not as a medical problem, but as a SYMPTOM of a viral infection in the
upper respiratory tract. To counter this infection the body sends
excess fluids and anti bodies to that area to fight the infection and
provide a degree of healing and soothing.
Next, think of Ireland with its moist, clammy, poorly heated homes,
schools and offices. Then think of the Irish tendency to congregate in
pubs and cinemas, none of which are overly sanitary. Now you have the
perfect conditions for picking up and transmitting viral infections.
Anti Histamine products such as Dristan will help dry up the sinuses.
Which of course is a mixed blessing at best. There are hundreds of
viruses involved, most of which have yet to be classified or identified.
And no preventive or cure has ever been developed to deal with them .
And because of their number and complexity it's doubtful there ever WILL
be. Taking one of the scores of non- prescription medicines available
over the counter will solve your problem in approximately one week.
Otherwise, expect this problem (called the common cold) to run its
course in about seven days ! Should it develop into bronchitis or
pneumonia, you're in luck ! Anti- biotics can usually deal with it.
But who knows ? Life is tough. Then we die.
Have a nice day, BMc.
