Sad to think crime has to take place to buy items which have evil written all of them eg homogenized/heated/ processed milk is one of th unhealthiest food products on th planet. TV isn't exactly th healthiest hobby to have, altho better than a 'smart' phone; and raw food is much healthier than what comes off th stove! Better off not to have committed the crime and continue a healthier life drinking spring water from th mountain, playing football, dancing or meditating and eating fresh raw green leafy veg from your own garden. Seeds are free.

@Bule Kampung, oh wow, that's a great argument. Do you have the same when it comes to processed food? That's still much more worse : )

@Martina, well, Martina, nobody has understood you. As I can see the comments, we, as a society and humankind, are getting lost (or we are lost already).

Yes, I do agree with you.

@Martina, have you sent in your soil sample to a lab to test it for heavy metals and other chemicals? Generally construction workers leak chemicals in your soil as well as heavy metals like mercury and chromium. Not to mention aluminum dust from concrete that can lead to all kinds of mental issues.
