Ate what God intended

Dear Mr. Bush:

Thank you so much for veto on the Stem Cell Research bill.  Even though NBC News stated that the polls said that people were in favor of Stem Cell research.  I do NOT believe the polls.  It would be like playing God, and that we should NOT even attempt to do.

I would highly recommend that the scientists who are so upset about not being able to use Stem Cells, start reseaching what CAUSES these diseases which did not exist a decade ago.  Could it be all the chemicals the manufacuturers of the food industry put in food to give it a longer shelf life?  We know that food industry puts in all kinds of substances in food for longer shelf life, thereby increasing their profit.  Are these same chemicals causing all kinds of disease?

In the Bible you hear nothing of the types of diseases that we have now days.  Was it because people only ate what God intended, foods in their God created state, not preserved for longer shelf life and bigger profits.

My vote will go to the person who clamps down on the food industry by putting stricter controls on what can put into food to give it that longer shelf life.

In the book, "Fast Food Nation" many facts are presented concerning how food gets to market.  This book is only one of hundreds now on the market which addresses what manufacturers put into foods.  When is someone going to take the big step and finance research into what all these chemicals can cause?  Yes, the drug companies and food manufacturers may loose some money, but I'll just bet our nations health would improve tremendously.

But then again, sometimes I think it is all about who is in whose pocketbook.  Who makes the most money wins.  Which is really sad because I truly believe it is NOT all about money.  It is about living a wonderful life in the beautiful county that God gave us.  Are we destroying that gift in the name of profit?  Perhaps, God please help us.

Thanks for listening,
