I think we're actually closer to lemmings than sheep. I mean, a long time ago I learned that birth defects can happen to the third generation. In other words, you can be affected by something your grandmother did. Well, when I was a child, diabetes was really uncommon and mostly something you got in childhood. Eventually I heard a lot about what was called "Adult Onset Diabetes". Seemed really common in the boomer generation. Now it's called Type II diabetes because children are getting it. There are lots of studies where the first generation is exposed to a bad substance, the 2nd generation is somewhat affected with birth defects or other problems, then the third or fourth is unable to reproduce. So now we have what used to be an adult disease happening in children. We have Low T commercials on TV. We have PCOS. Infertility treatments are common. So many problems with our hormones. How much you wanna bet the young people being born now find it very difficult to get pregnant 25 years from now? How much you wanna bet their children will find it almost impossible? A freakin' farmer could see something was up if he saw this sort of progression happening in his cattle or pigs but we can't see it in the human population? I'm not going to call people who can't see this trend sheeple or whatever. I wouldn't even expect anyone to link it to something as mundane as sugar and industrial seed oils. The first thought would be cancer-causing chemicals or GMO or something scary-sounding, not stuff associated with happiness and health. But you'd think university professors or doctors or SOMEBODY with brains would notice what is happening to us and figure it out.
