Perry attorney Larry Walker penned an interesting article on wild hogs and describes their increasing destruction of flora, fauna, and property — a scourge and a serious concern to citizens in more than 40 states. He cites corroborative evidence from the University of Georgia (UGA). Wild hogs, as I have written elsewhere, are indeed a growing problem.

There are many ways to assess a civilization. It all depends on your point of view. Some people believe we are advancing. These people point to a woman's "freedom to choose," more "rights" for those accused of crimes, and greater "tolerance." Other people believe we are declining. These people point to nearly a million babies killed every year, up to the time of birth and sometimes even after. They point to increasing reluctance of the law-abiding to rely on the legal system. They point to widespread cheating in schools, in business, in government, and in relationships.

Without a doubt, Health and Nutrition Secrets That Can Save Your Life, by the eminent neurosurgeon, nutritionist and associate editor of the Medical Sentinel Russell L. Blaylock, M.D., is a brilliant and compelling tour de force that will reverberate in the field of health and nutrition for years to come.(1)

From the Dedication to the Afterword, this is a beautifully written and brilliantly composed tome --- definitely a welcomed addition to his previous opus, Excitotoxins: The Taste That Kills (1994).(2)
