(Milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) - 07) The milkweed seed pods are depicted in this photo, from the immature (in the background) to the more mature (foreground-right).  The milkweed plant was also used to treat dropsy, a fluid accumulation in the cell tissue caused by a failing liver.  More recent scientific studies of the milkweed plant revealed that it contains the same cardiac glycosides that are used in modern medicine to treat this disease.  A low fat and unprocessed food vegan diet is also good preventive medicine.

lamb-right lamb-left Presented here are just a few of the countless components of God's creation.  Just as we cannot have human and animal life without water and plants, neither can we have lasting peace without love and compassion.  It is our hope and prayer that this series will motivate people to live and act in a cruelty-free manner; that we would no longer hurt or destroy each other, the animals or our environment.
