War keeps taking and taking and taking… we need to care for those who serve.

Before there was PTSD, there was just combat fatigue; men and women were just supposed to forget about it or suck it up.

Many men and women who served in all our wars suffered during their time in combat and many silently for years after their service in WW One and WW Two, Korea, Vietnam, and then Desert Shield. Finally they put a real name and some real treatment together for what had ruined all too many lives years after the combat was forgotten.

Don’t forget, don’t let them down. Think even longer and harder before sending them in harm’s way – please.

While I always felt his PTSD was “justified” in a way, his wife’s behavior after he returned home always seemed bizarre to me.
When talking with her, she’d drone on and on about having “secondary PTSD;” she developed the same symptoms as her husband.

Planet and People Killing Lessons from Lilly and Monsanto

This article notes how Eli Lilly give women cancer and treats it as well. Monsanto develops (GM) seeds that will love and depend upon its Round Up pesticide and probably spawn a reaction by the natural system akin to cancer and then Monsanto can develop an even stronger pesticide that will give people and the planet cancer at the same time. Look for a partnering strategy between the two.

Breast Cancer Action Asks You To Be The Billboard

Eli Lilly has taken pinkwashing to a whole new level. By adding rBGH to the products they sell, Eli Lilly has completed its cancer profit circle: it creates cancer with rBGH, it sells cancer treatment drugs like Gemzar, and it sells a drug, Evista, to reduce the risk of breast cancer in women at high risk of the disease. Eli Lilly’s cancer drugs made $2,683,000,000 for the company in 2008. Its potentially carcinogenic dairy hormone made millions of dollars in the same year. Eli Lilly is milking cancer.
