    I have just noticed that people may respond (and may have to me before) to what someone posts hereon. If anyone heretofore has been kind enough to respond to something I’ve written (even as critique) I apologize for my “neglect-due-to-oblivion” . Two readers of my latest (regarding the immune disease death) piece were in touch. The following I sent, as noted 1 &/or 2 to each personally. But I think it appropriate to share my thoughts with others as well.
    To respondents I & 2
    Thanks for your thoughtfulness and prayers. The death of a child, any child, and the grief of those close in relationship, any "those" often brings actual tears in my eyes. To share intimately that we are each others' beings (so to speak) is where we all should be at. I was not a close-relative to this little girl, so am not bereaved per se. But I wept a couple times, and now, writing, my throat tightens and eyes moisten.
    And I'm moved that another is moved to touch me with caring, as you. Thank you.
    Now that I've finally noticed (!!) that people may respond to my verbose posts, I'll correspond personally as well as continue to dissertate prodigiously.

    I agree with you that aspects of modern life's "advance" have been destructive: climate, pollution, factory farming of animals, etc. Also, of course, excessive antibiotics resulting in resistant strains of disease microbes.
    But looking back in history . . . the filth and plagues and pandemics were so much worse in actuality than what we might project as dire potentials now. There was no control then. Medicine was manipulations of the mythic (humours, biles, bad air, gender “constitution”, etc.)
    At least, in worst-case scenarios, those afflicted with the incurable don't suffer the insufferable thanks to modern medical and pharmaceutical advance. Go back to basics and there's leprosy and scarlet fever and polio and . . . AGONY . . .. I'll opt for less prescriptions (even over-the-counter), thus more immune system "exercise". But I'll advocate progress, research, the ongoing evidence of, actually, natural process (of which man his science and tech is but part).

    I do send my condolences to you over the death of a relative but also someone so young, but I had no idea what you were posting ,in regards to all of the medical jargon, and I still don't know, other than the causation of death ,what you were to trying to explain, sorry for my ignorance.

    Thanks for your reply; however you did not answer why we are in this critical phase in the world; as I said "nature" will take revenge on over-population. Therefore, as I said nature wants a "balance" with all living things; we are disturbing this balance drastically. Sure you are right that we have better medicines, but this did not help my best friend either, regardles of that he suffered terribly. Churches should stop promoting unwanted child birth or prohibit birth control, in order to fill their coffers; I consider this pure criminal. Also there should be much more control related to parents who wants a child, and should have them throughoughly checked for health and the health of the baby; look at the story I wrote about the Australian christian "parents" who want to give birth a totally deformed kid with two heads; very sick indeed. Then as last we should cleanup our industrial waste, like here in Florida; because our leaders here get "kickbacks" from the poluting industries so nothing gets done. All the drinking water here is poluted. I guess in other places the same thing is happening.
    Sorry humanity is digging its own grave, because of greed. Again my condolences; I hate to hear these things; a lot of people around me have died from cancer, so I know how that feels .

    I think you just "hit the nail on the head." MOST of this is possibly due to water pollution. We are systematically destroying water in every place on earth. And fracking here is ruining any water nearby, for the lousy excuse we "need" more tar sands oil. Excuse me, but DEAD people will not need any more fossil fuels or gasoline.. and once the water supply is totally polluted, people will be extinct shortly afterward.

    Did you hear about the "earthquakes" in Oklahoma lately? Over 100 earthquakes per day. NOW they are saying that these all were caused by the "fracking" they are doing to get oil out of the ground there. Gee, isn't it enough they are causing huge Oil Spills in our Gulf Coast & up in Alaska, but now we have earthquakes in Oklahoma, causing huge cracks to appear in people's new houses? And anywhere they do this fracking, it ruins the water supply nearby. It will poison our water & the crops that are irrigated with this water. And we are SURE going to have many more immune disorders and diseases as a result of all this. What will it take to make this pollution STOP?
