People feeding crap to your dog despite your warnings.

Obviously leaving you to deal with the vomiting and diarrhea of the dog all night long.

Why would they feed them raw chicken?
Because it’s “good for dogs to eat raw things as they would in the wild” tells you the guy who never had a pet in his life.

Pretty sure he must an anti vaxxer too.

Oh ffs, firstly dogs aren't in the wild, we've bred them so far from them being in the wild that most wouldn't survive that long.

Have you tried un-friending this moron?

She got discharged, it's viral or bacterial so they wait for the results to treat it and gave painkillers in the meanwhile.

I really freaked out as when I hear cyst, lump, growth I immediately feared a cancer but it's discarded.
Part 2 of the story. They did analysis, found a bacteria but the pain started again yesterday.

Did an ultrasound right now, it's a peritonitis, she's going straight to hospital.

Really not my day...

It seems the moronic anti-science is spreading. I keep seeing more and more people who seem to be against GMO, MSG, transfats and and and and. Argh it is annoying

I fully agree with the EU's precautionary principle on GMO (not an outright ban but just being cautious). That's the only of these I agree with.

Why though? What basis are you agreeing with it?

Mostly regarding cross contamination and cross pollination.

Don't forget that I've had a cancer whose origin is totally unknown (risk factors are rather unknown too) but that affects mostly developped countries young people and whose rate has increased heavily. Everything points to external and environmental factors (since it's not genetical) so I became quite wary of any "new" thing since it probably comes from one of these new factors.

You're afraid that some corn seeds would go and cross pollinate with another non gmo corn? Even if it did they are technically only supposed to allow that crop to grow once and let the other farmer know. The fear of GMO is scary that even Europe is just swaying to popular belief instead of reason. For one of the first times in history famine is less then any other time in history and we have a population of 7.6 billion, this isn't because of organic farming methods in fact it's because we've used science to extend food.
It's unfortunate that you did get cancer though the chances it came from your food is probably very slim, unless you really loved corn, sugar beets, cotton seed oil or egg plant? It could be from many external factors, more diesel cars in Europe (thanks to falsified reports that it's better for the environment), vaping, climate change etc... But pinning it on GMO I'm not sure on. Also GMO has been around for 21 years or so.

I'm not afraid, it's proven that some GMO crops cannibalize other crops and it's impossible to prevent. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pollen_drift

I don't pin it on GMO or something in particular.

Could be soda, could be plastic, could be air pollution, vaping is excluded since I did not vape once before having it, could also be GMOs, I just don't know, I just avoid everything that's not necessary and that is a potential factor. I don't need GMO to eat or survive so if I can I avoid it until I know it's safe.

GMO has been around for 21 years but not in my food, the rates started to increase at the same time than GMO got commercialized and I got the cancer after 7 years in SA (going from not eating GMO to eating it). I haven't found any study studying the correlation between GMO and that cancer so I remain cautious and not eating GMO does not harm me either.

I don't think diesel could have an impact since the rate is higher in the US and they use very little diesel compared to Europe.

I don't have a clue but I adopt a precautionary principle, I might be totally wrong since it's based on no proof (since it's a mistery for science and there are no proofs or correlations to date).

How do you know it wasn't in your food? Before the scares a few years ago it could've been.
