Shark Cartilage – 11 July 2007

These words appeared in a heading on page 9 of the July-August 2007 issue of the AARP Bulletin: “…Shark Cartilage Is Out.” Katherine Greider, the writer of this article, states:

“And forget shark cartilage for treating lung cancer. A three-year study of 384 patients by Houston’s M.D. Anderson Center found that those taking a placebo lived an average of 15.6 months, more than a month longer than patients on shark cartilage.”

We say – better yet, forget any animal-derived product. Why would anyone want to treat him/herself with anything produced through the suffering of any creature?

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
