Green Vaccine's... why not.
I just wonder how far reaching the "green" movement can go. According to the Planet Green Network there is a growing movement for our vaccinations to now go green. Apparently, other than injecting a virus into your body like standard vaccines, there are additional chemicals that come along for the ride.
If this picture (top of the posting) is any indication of the "power" behind this movement, there seems to be five people very interested in seeing that mercury and aluminum find no place in future vaccinations. My curiosity is what does "green" mean anyway? I thought that being green had something to do with the environment and with energy conservation. Does "green" have a definition or can we just call me defecating on my lawn for fertilizer considered "green" because I am using renewable organic resources?
Is there something that can't go green? Green, green, green! This blog is green right? No paper used in its creation? Or do our computers need to be solar powered to be considered a green blog? As Kermit The Frog once so prophetically stated, "It isn't easy being green".
