One Response to Arthritic Moose Offer Insights into Nutrition

    I realize that this is a study on moose and other animals, but it certainly seems to pertain to all mammals, including humans. When I see the diet of most children and teenagers, so lacking in proper nutrition, based on soda and junk food, I predict even more disease for them, as we have seen with diabetes. Why not other diseases such as OA, early onset of osteoporosis, heart disease, etc. The moose have no choice, but people do have a choice.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
