    all I can think of is all the animals that were slaughtered just for that one boat. When you start thinking about all of it.....always comes to mind what someone said to me, "the animals can't take this demand". Yeah I was a Quality Control Inspector for the largest Beef Slaughter Processing Companies known as IBP. Ppl need to see what these places are like & the places they come from. This eating 3 meals per day our bodies were not created for this. This came from those who wanted to be rich & didn't care that telling you this is healthy for you that is good for need to eat 3 times per day. Well that depends how active you are or not....what health problems you have & most of all blood type. Type O Blood is the only blood that can break down red meats n others into energy. Even tho' they can do this doesn't mean Type O's can eat however much &/or whatever they want. They too must eat in moderations. Type A blood your body is an Alkaline Environment you do not have the stomach acid to break down red meats...pork etc. Feels like a lead brick on your stomach makes you very lethargic because that's also acidic to your body & it goes right to weight gain. The best way to consume meat is about 3-5 servings per week. Type A....along w/A&B you'll do much better keeping that portion down. Want to know how to keep your body in great shape & not rely on all those fake diets here's what they don't want you knowing.....get the book "Eat Right For Your Type...4 Blood Types 4 Diets by Dr Peter Adamo & Catherine Whitney". I found out about this long after Med. School & I was angered that this was NEVER MENTIONED. When I started eating according to my blood type WOW GREAT ENERGY ACTIVE WAS AMAZING...!! Also have less bowel problems. I learned why I NEVER LIKED TOMATO'S....Bad for My are Banana's...ripe banana's just their odors sickens Me......if there is a food your child fights you over not wanting to eat it....more than likely it makes them feel ill & not just being a picky eater. Is it any wonder they want to knock down the population...wish I hadn't watched this now

    Cruise ships are the most disgusting polluting garbage centers on the planet. They literally dump their human waste into the oceans, along with massive amounts of oil. They try to bribe local officials in cities they want to over take, and then blackmail the cities if they don't do what they want. The cruise industry is terrible.
