Alcohol Exposure Makes Fish Anti-Social

At first glance, studying fish eggs may seem like an unusual approach to explore alcohol's health effects on humans. But scientists beg to differ.

noted, they didn't need to experiment on fish eggs, have those "scientists" have ever been to a pub? They should have seen first hand the effects of alcohol on people.

Do these scientists do not have anything better to do? The alcoholism makes people antisocial. You know why cockroaches do not cross a chicken coop? Here is a good subject for scientists occupy themselves. Let the poor fishes in peace.

Another dumb experiment where thousands of hard-earned, hard-to-come Ėby tax dollars are wasted in form of grants to keep some idiotic scientists in business. Get rid of these dead-beats! Donít we have enough alcoholics which demonstrated for decades how anti-social they become? We know what alcohol does to the body and pregnant females or even alcoholics fathering children. This is outrages!

I encourage everyone to follow me and write to the University of Toronto and include a copy of this article. Demand to re-evaluation this individual.
Activists: put notices up in the campus, write in student papers and your local papers. Money is poured down the drain. Encourage sponsors to withdraw their support. Sponsors are usually listed on a plaque in the university or obtain info via Freedom of Information Act Canada.
Governments must pull all grants on such universities to teach them a lesson!
I feel sorry for the poor fish.

Alcohol "Changed their social skills". Are they serious? The poor fish probably felt like crap. I think research money could be better spent than forcing fish to live on a perpetual bender. We know alcohol causes birth defects, liver damage, personality changes, blah, blah, blah.

Now go get some stem cells and solve some REAL problems.
