Vegetarian Ideal


Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth
as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.

Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world. - Howard Zinn

with reverence in order to give it true value.

Hadyn Parry: Re-engineering mosquitoes to fight disease

Hadyn Parry presents a fascinating solution: genetically engineering male mosquitoes to make them sterile, and releasing the insects into the wild, to cut down on disease-carrying species.
