    who the hell are we to tell the Japanese what they can and can't do? I'd be seriously pissed if a bunch of Indian 'filmmakers' came over here and did a hyped up film about the making of hamburger.

    Right, dolphin are contaminated with Mercury that comes from burning coal. Factory farms cram as many animals as possible in tiny spaces. Because they are confined in close quarters with thousands of other pour souls, they are fed "sub therapeutic" levels of anti biotics ( this promotes resistant bacteria like MRSA). Cows and pigs are fed growth hormones on top of the other stuff. Then we can talk about environmental impacts of the industrial production of animals. If you're interested in where your food comes from, check out Food Inc. an excellent documentary. :eek:

    The Jap's are beefing up the children of the future army - high levels of mercury will surely turn them into stronger and more powerful killing machines, making them the dominating country in the world.

    Brilliant! I can't believe I didn't see this before. Combine the mercury with the high radiation levels of our 2 nuke attacks and you've got a race of mutant atomic supermen capable of ruling the world.

    think they can surf better after eating dolphin meat?

    saw the movie and it's pretty freaking sad. I don't think any animals should be treated like that, but can't disagree that we don't have poor practices for our food sources. money is the root of all evil though, and these people are doing this just to get paid. The right idea is to turn this town into a tourist attraction for the dolphins, instead of a slaughter house.

    and seriously, who puts " the only good shark is a dead shark" i hope you get your face bitten off.

    You can get all your protein from milk. Or whole wheat bread and peanut butter. Or Rice and beans(tofu is made of soy beans). It's call food combing. These items contain all the essential amino acids when combined. Alone, they don't work. There missing amino acids.(except for milk and eggs which is the highest quality protein) Milk provides all the b vitamins that you need to survive and carbs and other vitamins. It truly is very healthy in it's natural form without hormones. It's meant for a growing baby! Very nutritious.

    You can survive on just bread. It's not healthy. You can't survive on just meat. You will develop scurvy and you'll be dead quickly on just lean meat like rabbit."Rabbit starvation" Meat is a luxury that people enjoy eating. Simple. I don't judge meat eaters or push my beliefs on other people. I'm just letting you know my logic.

    Talk to a dietitian. They will tell you what a joke "protein" powders are that they sell at gnc for outrageous prices. Just put some egg whites in a blender will milk and you have a super high protein drink! You don't need meat to be healthy.

    I actually liked the movie a lot, but you have to realize our own agricultural practices have significant ecological consequences as well.

    That bit aside, there was a really cool scene in the movie where a surfer tells a story about how a shark started circling him and a dolphin came and just chased it away.

    Alright, but everyone in America knows that they are eating cows, pigs, and chicken. People in Japan are not told that they are eating dopphin. In the movie, they show a part where they go to a fish market and many of the meats there are actually dolphin even though they are labeled differently.

    Of course the producers are saints and don't stretch the true at all??? Form some of the things I've read, the film crews went to great lengths to provoke confrontations with the locals just for shock value in the film.

    What they are doing to the dolphins is horrible... but are you really that ignorant? What we do to pigs, chickens and cows by the millions every day is just as wrong. raising cattle is messing up the ecosystem too, destroying rain forests to make room for cattle is having a huge impact. All the s*** and byproducts from raising cattle is no different. Dave hit it right on the money.

    knowingly feeding mercury laced meet to kids and secretly substituting dolphin meat is down right wrong and deceptive.

    All of that's fine. I just don't want to see you out protesting bear hunting in New Jersey(clearly a threat to people and overpopulated). haha. I actually think there should be bear hunting because of the threat these large predators pose to people. It's not safe having a 500 pound predator in your backyard. It's a public safety risk. Oh and It's new jersey for god sakes....not Yellowstone national park. Actually I think they should be wiped out from the state. The repeated killing of these animals is cruel. Just get rid of them. And how's it ok to shoot sweet bambi for fun and not a large vicious predator? I'm totally against deer hunting.

    Seems like you are trying to be provacative. If you're shooting a deer for the pleasure of killing something you're an idiot. If you're shooting a deer to feed your family I support it completely. Deer meat is delicious, they have a high quality of life, they are not shot full of antibiotics and growth hormones and I know exactly how it died and how it was handled when it was butchered ( I do it myself). In addition, their populations in the east are very high while their habitat is ever dwindling. When large predators like wolves were removed from the ecosystem, it became our responsibility to manage the population. Hunting is our primary tool for that.

    I personally disagree about hunting large mammals like Bear and big cats. Black bear are not predators, and not much of a threat to humans unless we are sloppy with our trash. I have friends who swear bear meat is delicious but that's another story altogether.

    Your talking about predator prey relationships. The idea that deer will starve if not killed. This is true in the short term, but not true in the long term. What ends up happening is that the deer adapt to not having any predators and there breeding cycle slows down over MANY MANY generations to adapt to a lack of predators and lack of food supply.

    This is why you can have islands where there are no predators and there is no overpopulation and if you introduce a predator they end up wiping out the prey species because the prey species has not had time to adapt to the predator.

    Look at lynx and rabbit populations in Labrador Canada.

    Low levels of rabbits = Lynx starve to death. Then less Lynx= more rabbits, then Lynx population starts growing and rabbits population collapses. This brutal cycle continues indefinitely.
