The American diet is made up of animal products. Americans believe animal products are a healthy food source because of the protein in meat, dairy, and eggs. Young children are taught to drink their milk because they need to grow and have strong bones. The USDA has a food pyramid showing two to three servings of dairy, eggs, and meat a day, that is almost every meal. As well as taste and appearance, animal products are packaged so they are easy to cook at home. But what Americans are not aware of is the way these animal products are made so they taste good. Cows, pigs, chickens, and all other animals that are farmed to be eaten are pumped up with antibiotics and hormones in order for them to appear more appetizing. Consuming these antibiotics and hormones leads to health problems such as resisting antibiotics prescribed by your doctor, as well as early puberty development in girls. However, there was a time before the industrial era when all food was made naturally, or organically. And today, there are many farms and grocery stores that provide organic animal products. If Americans start buying more organic products, eventually there will be less animal products processed with hormones and antibiotics. Then one day, everything will be made organically. Antibiotics and hormones would only be used in doctor’s offices and hospitals. The American people will be more natural and healthy again.
Sexual assault happens everywhere. The assaults happen in Hollywood, in government, in the workplace, on the street, in school, and in our homes. It has been televised and written about enough times in the media for this to be common sense. I think we can all agree, both men and women, sexual assault against women has gone too far and needs to stop. Women need to take action so these wrongly accused men will no longer be in danger of prosecution. A great number of them never actually go to jail or prison. But still, the mere possibility of going to jail must be stressful. And I know, as a woman, I would feel great shame in causing a man to rape me. So, how will men ever feel safe again, and how will women not feel shame ever again? I have a simple, easy proposal that should be put into action because time is up. Women must take responsibility and become educated on how to prevent sexual assault.
