Keepin, I am not qualified to evaluatethose boys' behavior or their developmental progress. But there is enough evidence to suggest that our childrens development is being hampered and th reality is they are ingesting poisons on a daily basis. Go back and look at the last three or four mass murderers and check whatever limited background that has been examined. What I am saying is if this rape deserved national and international attention and media reverberation then the fact that our children are being attacked daily, not sexually but as importantly their minds anf bodies. This damage that is also something that will do irreversible damage to our youth. I just don't think that people will go after large corporations and government agencies to get justice for our kids and if they do I don't see Nancy Grace and Roseanne Bar or any of the media for that fact proving a voice for the people.

Listen, I'm not going to argue this anymore after this commnet. The issues you bring up may be valid and need to be more thoroughly examined. Fine. But these possible toxins in our food have nothing to do with what these boys did to that girl. THEY ARE TWO SEPERATE ISSUES.

"We have to break through our kind of private idea that kids belong to their parents or kids belong to their families and recognize that kids belong to whole communities. Once it’s everybody’s responsibility, and not just the households’, then we start making better investments." , said Obama Administration member Melissa Harris - Perry.

No wonder the famed Steubenville big Red ' Rape Crew " is clueless on ethics, morals, principals, and common decency. Where were the parents? At the Spot Bar gambling ? The world is giving " Da Ville " a full rectal examination to see what makes parents like " Steubenville Jill " Watkins, and The Nodianos parents tick. They couldn't understand the lack of humainty or empathy. It's a Steubenvill

Your unwillingness to acknowledge this daily attack of your children shows your limited scope of concern and the target of your vengeance. You rally for justice and ignore the immediate threat to your children. Your lack of commitment to justice and the safety of your children shows,

After tradgedies such as Sandy Hook which makes more sense....to find certain guns to blame the tragedy on or examine what is wrong with the brain of someone who could do such a thing. There must be a multitude of causes for the differences in behaviors between todays youth and the youth of decades ago. I am just trying to get people to think outside the box and ask the harder questions and see how much help the National media gives when you question corporations and government agencies on an issue as important as mental and physical health. People can call for the dismissal of teachers and coaches, well what about the Directors of the FDA who used to be CEO of Monsanto one of the mainplayers exposing our food chain to elements that have no positive role in the food chain.

Keepin, I apologize for calling you hatefuel when I should have realized you more correctly emotionally motivated. My intent was not twist the two issues together. Attempted to correlate the ways our children are violated and the collateral damages incurred. I also displayed an interest on how dedicated those very vocal and determined protestors are in the face of mental and physical attacks that take place on a daily basis and how much support they would get from the media if they tried to get to the bottom of a serious threat to our children in the form of innapropriate treatment of our food chain. There is a definite link between delinquent behavior and the poisons introduced to the human brain from food additives. I am not attempting to create a dfense for this particular case. But the growing delinquent and violent behavior of young people show a possible link to the ingestion of elements that were never intended for the food chain. (cont')

@maverick: you don't know me or anything about me. you took the topic of the rape case and twisted it with an entirely different subject matter, trying to correlate the two together. i was simply pointing that out. do i have a strong opinion? absolutely! but just because it differs from yours doesn't make me "hateful". i don't hate anyone or anything. dislike, sure, but don't label me with things that are inaccurate because i argue the other side. isn't that what this forum is for?? you have an opinion, so do i. it's a free country.

Keepin, I just supplied you with information and sources and it appears you have no opinion on the violation of all of our children on a daily basis. You chose to respond to my letter for only one reason and that was to clariffy your position on the rape case. Do you have children. If you do I am sure that you will be talking to them about the threat of rape but it doesn't seem like you care about the daily assault on their minds and bodies. I do believe tht you are a hateful person locked into one mindset, a rather small mindset.

The research goes on. If you have children I recommend you do more research. If you can't see a corralation betwenn these food additives and behavior modifications in young people It is because this rape has hit an emotional chord with you and you would prefer to be motivated by hate before considering what may be the real problem that I assure you will not go away.

Rather than destroying the leftovers, the manufacturer shipped remaining hormones to Puerto Rico where the farmers liberally injected their chicken, pork, and beef herds. Shortly thereafter, thousands of children as young as two were found to have reached full sexual maturity.

Hormones and additives are added both to the feed and medicinally to animals to increase consumer attractiveness, and while "additives are being designed to increase shelf life and consumer appeal, however, two major additives are being used that have estrogenic qualities" (Knoblauch, 2010, p. 1). These additives and hormones are actually added to mimic human hormones and "anabolic steroids such as trenbolone became popular in the 1970s. They were claimed to have only slight side-effects, and improved food-conversion efficiency" (Hormones, 2005). As such, it is becoming increasingly apparent that children are approaching puberty and or gaining more weight much earlier than forty years ago. In fact, certain studies are showing that increased uses of hormones in poultry production are jump-starting children into puberty earlier and earlier. "In the late 1970s, the U.S. banned a growth hormone (DES) known to cause cancer. (cont)

More facts:Aspartame is a neurotoxin and carcinogen. Known to erode intelligence and affect short-term memory, the components of this toxic sweetener may lead to a wide variety of ailments including brain tumor, diseases like lymphoma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue, emotional disorders like depression and anxiety attacks, dizziness, headaches, nausea, mental confusion, migraines and seizures. Acesulfame-K, a relatively new artificial sweetener found in baking goods, gum and gelatin, has not been thoroughly tested and has been linked to kidney tumors

Here are some facts yu will learn from my sources:There are a growing number of clinicians and basic scientists who are convinced that a group of compounds called excitotoxins play a critical role in the development of several neurological disorders including migraines, seizures, infections, abnormal neural development, certain endocrine disorders, neuropsychiatric disorders, learning disorders in children, AIDS dementia, episodic violence, lyme borreliosis, hepatic encephalopathy, specific types of obesity, and especially the neurodegenerative diseases, such as ALS, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, Huntington's disease, and olivopontocerebellar degeneration.

"1 in 3 kids are overweight" because 1 in 3 parents don't have their children involved in daily activity. "1 in 6 kids a have learning disability" because 1 in 6 parents want to obtain an IED and get a disability check for the kid instead have them apply themselves in class. (don't get me wrong, i know true disabilites are out there, i am speaking on the less than honest people in the world) "1 in 9 have asthma" medical condition. "1 in 10 is ADD/ADHD" because 1 in 10 have 3-5 game systems in their home and are not participating in physical activity. (again, yes, there are some true cases, but far too many are due to the lack of physical activity.) "1 in 12 have food allergies" sorry, those have been around FOR DECADES "1 in 20 have seizures" again, medical condition, not food related. "1 in 88 have autism" medical, not food. "50% of all American kids have chronic illness or are overweight" 50%????? wher

Children eat the food they are given. If they are given fruit, they eat fruit. If they are given fast food, that's what they eat. Nutrition is important, yes, but a cheeseburger didn't make them do it. At some point, you sir, need to MAKE THE PARTIES RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS INSTEAD OF BLAMING IT ON THIS, THAT OR THE OTHER. Sometimes kids make bad choices, but sometimes it's bad kids doing bad things. That has, also, be going on for decades. You can't blame the music, the movies, or the food. It's CHOICES that caused this to happen.

There is evidence that some food additives actually attack the brain and other organs. Look at the youth crimes on the rise. Mass murder, rape,bullying,assault and battery. Young girls having babies and placing them in a dumpster. Do you want to blame parents, citizens, teachers,cops and others for the increase of these crimes. These crimes r being commited by kids who r out of touch with reality. There exists a variety of components that sends a child into a killing frenzy. So it is like a recipe of negative influences that doesn't impact everyone so you can not point to the kids with minimal exposure and say there is no excuse for these others to act out other than them having bad parents or horrible role models. Ue can choose to ignore the way our childrens' mental capacity is being damaged but sooner or later you will have to consider these outside factors because gun control, invasive social media and masked protest aren't even going to scratch the surface of the problem.

nkelley, that is where u r wrong. What I am saying has to do with the terrible behavior of all kids' Juvenile misbahavior is on the rise as well as juvenile impairments such as ADD/ADHD and autism, which is increasing at an alarming rate. If u would do some research on the consequences of the variety of contaminant additives that find their way into the developing minds and bodies of our children you might see where making real time judgements for young people can b impaired or clouded. I am not blaming this entire rape case on poor nutrition, and media information laced in drugs, sex, and violence. But I am pointing out the way our youth r violated on a daily basis and the repurcutions from the damage done during the developmental stages. During the teen years when the the body's glands star adding fresh hormones into young people that stimulate the titilation and growth of all bodily organs, the FDA allows the dumping of steroids and growth hormones via the food chain into kids.

No maverick, it's not the same. Your putting attention on something that has nothing to do with the terrible behavior of these kids. I think what your saying goes on another letter that has nothing to do with this rape.

Nkelly I am suggesting that the physical and mental well being of our children are under daily attack from the additives to the foods that the FDA allows on the market, the contamination that they breath and assimlate from the environment and the stimuli both audio and video that they are bombarded with through mass media. There is evidence that the growth hormones, steroids, pesticides, preservatives, genetically altered seeds and processes that dramatically alter our food chain severely impacts the development of our children through their formative years. This has been going on for decades now and gets increasingly worse. Even the parents of these kids may have impaired reasoning because of these factors. My question is, "doesn't these types attacks on our children deserve the same type of protests? isn't this abuse also uncalled for? is it possible that the damage to the brain caused during the developmental years plays a role in delinquent behavior?
