After a lot of thought, this is my answer: I did not set out to change anyone's mind; it is not my place to tell people what to think. My goal was more basic... present my findings and hope that at least one person, just one, would start to think more about it and ask questions for themselves. If that happened, I had accomplished what I had set out to do.
I have always encouraged everyone to do their own research and not take my word for it. I am happy to tell you, that more than one person has looked into this on their own and started asking those questions. Some are taking steps into brave 'new worlds' like starting their own stand alone shops. Some may remain where they are...that's fine. We are all different and that is what makes the world go round.
I have done all of the research I intend to do. Although there is a lot more to the story, it is time for me to concentrate on the things that are important to me: my family, my friends and my new shop! I want to thank everyone who has supported me along the way!
If you have been offended by any of the facts presented regarding this subject, look to the source of the 'bile'...not to the 'bad humans' who have reported of them. Like they say... 'Don't shoot the messenger.'
