    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    I agree that this "legislation" is anti-semetic.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    I am against female circumcision. I do think abortions are worse. Its murder.

    'Intactivists' to San Francisco: Ban circumcision

    Bottom line: It is the parent decisions. Parent decide a lot of things fro their children- like what they eat, what they wear and if they should take them to the DR if they are having a 104 fever or if they should not. The goverment should butt OUT of our personal business. Maybe abortions should be illegal again. Is that not "mutilation", does that fetus has a say? I am Jewish and proud to be. I am circumcised and proud to be. I am following the traditions of my ancestors who have been circumcised since Abraham and Isaac. Jesus was Jewish and I bet he was certainly circumcised. If your against it than don't do it, and don't circumcise your sons. Done and Done.

    Too many choices.

    I do think that children have feelings of entitlement. I think that teaching a sense of obedience and work ethic is important. Example: get your new x-box if you get straight A's, must do all your chores, clean your room ect. To give a little you have to get a little. Cell phones were not widespread amoung children and teenagers 10-15 years ago and everything was fine. I would not give my child a cell phone until they were in high-school and had a job and could pay the bill every month. You have to give a little to get a little. I also think that buying your teenager a brand new car when they get their license is absurd. I think they should get used cars to learn on, and if they get into accidents or fender benders its not as big as a deal if it was brand new.

    On a downward spiral

    Your feelings are normal. It is okay to wallow, eat a gallon of ice cream and watch lifetime movie marathons. It is important to remember that: "This to shall pass". You need to get it out of your system in able to move on. Little by little that pain will subside and you will start feeling good again. Spend time with friends and family and surround yourself with your support system. Take a vacation, buy some new clothes, go to the spa--you need to relax, and reflect.

    Mineral Oil- Why it is BAD!!

    I rather not take the chance of mineral oil that is purely refined to be safe when there is evidence that their are carcinogens in unrefined mineral oil. Heavy direct contact with the skin I think would be indicitive of people using moisturizers with mineral oil/petroleum as the main ingredient (which the majority of them are) multiple times a day everyday which is when people moisturize their skin. Since mineral oil is so abundant due to the high demand of gasoline it is extremely cheap. It makes more sense for major cosmetic companies (almost all of them) who use it as their main ingredient not to discredit it. There is something called: "common sense" that tells me that putting refined fossil fuel on my body is not much to be desired. I think if those studies are good enough for OSHA who uses it for their safety regulations than it is good enough for me, I hope I can find updated research since discrediting others is my new past time. Unlike me, I am sure you are much older than 1985 so should I discredit you as well? I would never, because you would not allow me :)

    Mineral Oil- Why it is BAD!!

    Is OSHA good enough for you? "Effects on Animals: Mineral oil mists can affect the lungs of experimental animals, and certain mineral oils are carcinogenic [ACGIH 1991]. However, skin painting studies suggest that certain mineral oils are carcinogenic in experimental animals; in general, the less severely treated oils are carcinogenic" "Effects on Humans: Exposure to mineral oil mists can cause eye, skin, and upper respiratory tract irritation as well as central nervous system effects in humans. In addition, certain mineral oils are carcinogenic in humans [Hathaway et al. 1991]...Many studies confirm that poorly refined mineral oil can induce skin and scrotal cancers after prolonged, repeated, and heavy direct contact with the skin [ACGIH 1991]. In addition, repeated dermal exposures may result in dermatitis [Genium 1985]." "EXPOSURE SOURCES AND CONTROL METHODS The following operations may involve mineral oil mist and lead to worker exposures to this substance: The manufacture and transportation of mineral oil mist Use as a lubricating oil Use as a solvent for inks Use in rubber extenders, food additives, and pharmaceutical preparations Use in cosmetics, agricultural sprays, corrosion inhibitors, soaps, and defoamers" Occupational Safety and Health Guideline for Oil Mist

    Mineral Oil- Why it is BAD!!

    perhaps reading is not your forte. i did not say mineral oil=crude oil i said mineral oil is a byproduct of the crude oil to gasoline process which is a fact. so if it is not a derivative of crude oil than where does it come from unicorns and rainbows? "liquid byproduct obtained through fractional distillation. baby oils of the past used to be just mineral oil with some fragrance, but consumer consciousness began to sway from using byproducts related to gasoline and petroleum. digesting mineral oil can cause cramping, diarrhea and nausea. it can also irritate the skin, eyes and lungs." mineral oil comes from crude oil (i.e., gasoline). it is merely the liquid form of petroleum jelly. as you know, petroleum jelly acts as an additional layer of skin when applied; preventing external substances (including vitamin d from the sun) from being absorbed. continue reading on examiner.com the truth about mineral oil - richmond natural beauty | examiner.com the truth about mineral oil - richmond natural beauty | examiner.com read more: how is mineral oil produced? | ehow.com how is mineral oil produced? | ehow.com fossil fuel on my skin sounds delicious.

    Mineral Oil- Why it is BAD!!

    Mineral oil is BY PRODUCT OF THE CRUDE OIL REFINING PROCESS. So it is a derivative of crude oil. I will stick to my sunflower seed oil, olive oil, and grape seed oil. Also I use Moroccan Argan oil which comes from the rare Argan tree. One tree only produces one liter of oil per year so it is expensive but is loaded with antioxadents. None of my products are "all natural" I dont care about that. I was just giving advice you should look into Signature Club A and Serious Skin Care for your anti-aging help.

    Mineral Oil- Why it is BAD!!

    If it works for you that's great. Many of the research that is done is by independent studies. I rather not put gasoline and crude oil on my skin. I do not need any research to realize that.

    The Mother Who Didn't Like Her Child

    If I was to ask my mother who her favorite child is she would say "all of you are". We each have qualities that she praises for instance my sister graduated from Cornell with her BA and masters in 4 years of college education and has 2 beautiful children, my brother was in the Israeli army for 3 years, me the best looking and best baby and Salutatorian of my nursing class and so on. My parents came to this country for their children to have a better life than they had. It makes her very happy to have the American dream and see all her children's successes.

    The Vegetarian Thread

    I can only comment on what I witnessed on my drive upstate. I saw many happy cows that were frolicking in meadows, relaxing under shaded trees, and surounded by the Berkshire mountains. It was a beautiful. I am not denying nor ever denied feedlots and bad conditions. It is disrespectful to the dairy farmers who brake their backs to make a living and provide for their families when they treat their animals like gold. Please do not make arrogant assumptions that all farmers or those that eat meat "condone" animal abuse. Do you take prescription medication? If so than it is most likely that rats were used as "guinea" pigs and tortured, and given disease to test drugs. Are you going to inform your patient every time you have a med pass that they are condoning and contributing to the affliction of rats? I plan next weekend to visit the dairy farms b/c I saw where their milk comes from (I saw happy cows as I have said in lush pastures at their farm) and buy fresh milk and meat if they have with a smile on my face b/c I know their animals are raised with respect and given acres upon acres to enjoy. Last I will comment on this.
