Pamela Anderson Lends Star Power To Fight Against Foie Gras In France!
"In many national cultures, there seems to be at least one cruel tradition that stands out as identifying that culture," said Anderson. "Be it the bullfight in Spain, eating dogs in Korea, the slaughter of dolphins and whales by Japan or the bloody and obscene massacre of seals in my own native Canada."
Yeah, right, Pamela. I'm all in favour of animal rights. But what about human livers? There are approximately 4 million in the USA and 750 million world-wide that could easily be saved?
I have thought this too V, and add to that list now cured (via peg/inf) Mr Steve Tyler of Aerosmith, who could help as well. I recall the breaking down of stigma and the support for HIV by stars and royalty alike, and the global awareness of poverty with Geldof's We are The World, people won Grammy Awards, received Queens honours and so on...these are worthy causes indeed. These are causes that should be incessantly lobbied, yes.
The stats on HCV are still really unknown I think , we only can go by who has been tested, and I don't like to think about the lack of testing in less developed countries with an unwell GDP and little ability to run on Primary Resources or to develop sustainable infrastructure in Health, Housing and Education.
I am sure a projection could be made by a statistician as to the probable number of infected people based on those of us who have been accounted for, and the other data coming into play.
Lately many people with public profiles have died as a result of the ongoing fight with HCV. I thought that when Bowie passed away his high profile might have urged some of these rockers to get together and speak up.
I think 2016 we will witness more loss. I hope that these people who have huge social media presence, who have global music markets and the finances to actually break stigma, raise awareness and to assist the global eradication of HCV come to the party.
Thank you for your post, you spoke my language,
