Population Limiters in Effect

I read Darren’s comments on an article regarding the cancer-causing agents in red meat. Not that anyone has said there are carcinogens in steak, but there seems to be some sort of accusatory game going on. I’m neither a vegetarian nor a carnivore, but rather what humans were meant to be; omnivores. Darren is too, actually – he just doesn’t partake in the bloody stuff. The way I see it, humans are beginning to hit their mortality rate limit. We live too long, and there are probably too many of us. Wars bring about a good amount of losses, though we’re getting better at those too. Gone are the days of World War II and its high-ranking monthly death toll. In an effort to cheat death to the end, the 80’s began a new era of investigating every cranny to find possible risks to mankind. There isn’t much these days that won’t give you cancer or give you a heart-attack eventually. I don’t know if our food has changed so drastically through time, if we’re just living longer / eating more and seeing the effects, or if nature has turned against us in order to stamp out the humanoid virus. Whichever it is, the end result is pretty much the same. We all die…eventually. Some Jedi wisdom for everyone out there:

“Death is a natural part of life. Rejoice for those around you who transform into the Force. Mourn them, do not. Miss them, do not. Attachment leads to jealousy. The shadow of greed, that is. Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.”
