Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

This might be one of the best explanations for why we need vaccinations I’ve ever seen.

"It’s not a public health issue" my ass.

SOY DEFORESTATION

Most people associate soy with tofu and soy milk. However, only a small portion of soy is consumed directly by humans. In fact, most of the world’s soy crop ends up in feed for poultry, pork, cattle and even farmed fish. The expansion of soy to feed the world’s growing demand for meat often contributes to deforestation and the loss of other valuable ecosystems in Latin America. 

To grow soybeans, vast expanses of land are needed. Production is overtaking huge areas in fragile ecosystems such as:

  • The Brazilian Cerrado (a relatively flat, mixed woodland and savannah area of central Brazil),
  • the Amazon,
  • the Chaco, and
  • the Atlantic Forests of South America.

This threatens wildlife and biodiversity. It also adversely affects people, the global climate, water reserves and soil quality. 

In South America, almost 4 million hectares of forests are destroyed every year, 2.6 million of them in Brazil alone.

Limiting (or you know, completely avoiding) consumption of animal-based food products, particularly meat, is one thing people can do to help end this devastating trend.

THIS POST IS IMPORTANT.

It’s interesting to note that that the garments that have a cross over style when worn correctly are all worn with the left breast over the right.
