Whoop there it is

The past 30 years has seen an extraordinary increase in consumer demand for safe, effective and cost-effective natural healthcare. Naturopathic medicine has emerged as the health care profession best suited to meet this demand. Although it almost disappeared in the mid-twentieth century because of the popularity of drugs and surgery, naturopathic medicine now offers safe, effective natural therapies as a vital part of the health care systems of North America the twenty-first century.”

Who’s job is it really to stop Global Warming?

POLAR BEARWhile debates of Global Warming and what we can do to stop its devastation are taking place, we need to realize it shouldn’t be completely our job to fix the problem.As earth’s temperature rises, our polar ice caps are melting and footage of polar bears being stuck on ice shelves, lost at sea, are being shown to bring pity to viewers in an attempt to make them try and do what they can to stop Global Warming. But since most civilized human beings do not live near a melting glacier, is it really our job to save the polar bears? If they don’t want to become extinct, maybe they should start stepping up, too. So to all of you polar bears: you guys need to start doing your part to stop Global Warming. I mean I don’t see you guys planting a tree, or driving around in a hybrid car. Instead you fish all day and swim. How fucking productive is that? Quit being so lazy and start doing your part. When you all die off I will feel no pity for you. You have been warned.
