The majority of humans I have met are vastly humane. Comparatively, the majority of Government decisions are seen as exasperatingly profane.

It's amazing we grow into healthy adults at all when you consider the mistakes we make raising our kids. Like feeding them rice cereal at six months, for example. That's no longer allowed, according to the latest in parenting news that came from a statement released by Health Canada last week.

Today, fast and processed food is a daily occurrence due to its availability and the lack of time in our lives. According to the National Restaurant Association, nearly half of the money North Americans spend on food is in restaurants.
