    Covig 19 will clean the lot of us humans out as it mutates, the white and red meat animals will then belch and fart in peace... :D

    My initial thought when first hearing about the virus was along similar lines - that mother nature appears to be getting her own back...o_O :wideyed:

    Do we believe everything the environmental scientists say about global warming emergency. For instance, to take the news that such and suh a day the raifall was a record and the highest since records began?

    Now the truth may be coming out

    How do we think the current crisis will affect this cause? Will it make people more prepared to listen? Reconsider health as a priority? Will figures show metabolic dysfunction as the risk factor we in here largely view as the huge elephant in the health world and finally make authorities look at diet as the powerful tool it is?

    What can we do as we come out of crisis to highlight our point of view? As a society many have some extra time right now. We should use it to plan a cohesive strategy ready to be deployed at the appropriate time

    No. We will just triple-down on low fat healthy whole grain and hope the last fifty years were a dream.

    Ok so maybe a rare moment of misplaced hope in the midst of the doom and gloom :(
