they can make you genger confused. Aluminum, thimerosal mercury and formaldehyde (all vaccine components) are endocrine disruptors, meaning it screws you male/ femaleness. Inject these into a child who has little gender identity and they grow up thinking they were born that way.

They are not my go-to bean, BUT they have potential if prepared well. Maybe with some zingy tomato, herb-forward, cheesy goodness they could be good....

Fava beans I can deal with, I mix them 25% to 75% garbanzos (dry) to make my falafel mix......good stuff.
A fava and a lima bean are almost the same thing.

I had a hot, baked lima/fava bean dish at Aziza SF once....so tasty, tangy and zesty. The falafel sounds yummy. You will of course have to educate our Canadian friends about Falafel....

Vaccines Cause Autism

Anti vaxxers must be afraid of this doctors article. Instead of debunking what he states, anti vaxxers simply claim he's sociopathic (which isn't even a true word). Wakefield, McCarthy nor Mercola has any background in vaccine research or production, either and they never did. And also note, although this doctors wife had concerns, their children do not have autism.
Maybe it was the "there exists an overwhelming preponderance of medical research against the "vaccines-cause-autism hypothesis." that anti vaxxers are so afraid of????
We're not afraid, we're appalled by an industry that uses consumers as test subjects then denies the results. Then we get idiots like Dr Ballard thinking she has the gift of convincing us and she's a pro-vac messiah. Someone who doesn't research or produce vaccines, isn't a victim of vaccines and who's life is rosy while victims flap their hands, mumble and scream and have their potential destroyed and life shattered.

The crazy ones are the anti-vaxxers, who have no valid scientific evidence to prove that vaccines cause autism. If vaccines caused autism, then the autism rates among vaccinated kids would be significantly higher than among unvaccinated kids, and they are not. The rates are the same, according to numerous peer reviewed studies, as Dr. Ballard rightly indicates.
If Commander Bunny isn't already a member of the Crazy Gang, he should be.
ric99%dumb, the 13 year old didn't get the toys he wanted for Christmas. No he's having a tantrum. Chin up bloke maybe next year.
