Actually JohnC and I much of the time think the same of matters. However, we articulate different. Nothing wrong with that. But is proves that DEK is always here just on a 'anti Kurt' crusade. Never write a comment himself.

Dek missed the point that I supported/added to JohnC's comment

@Kurt   First of all I can't see any relation to the article in your comment. And could you please cite a reliable source where it says that kidney,liver ,cancer or blood pressure diseases are unproportional higher here because of pesticides etc.used in Thailand compared to other countries. Or is this just another baseless assumption from you ?

Kurt | 12 August 2022 - 13:55:10

@JohnC, pesticides, chemicals,  hormones used in Thai food growing/processing is common, and big burden for Thai people health. Not for nothing many 50+ age Thai suffer kidney-, liver-, cancer-, blood pressure diseases.

Do these baby shrimp originate from the shrimp farms in Ranong province that are so full of chemicals and hormones that they are not even natural?
