Comment 3 by JuJu :

If larvae are stressed to the point of death prior to metamorphism doesn't that mean they aren't surviving long enough to pass on their genes? So wouldn't that characteristic eventually fade out based on the principles of natural selection? And wouldn't the ones that don't stress out to the point of death, or lack of development, be the ones that survive to breeding age and spread the genes that don't exhibit theses behaviors. Rather wouldn't they spread the genes that allowed them to avoid that fate in order for the species to survive. Wouldn't the genes that code for stressful dying eventually become less prevalent within the population?

They are stressed to the point of death in THAT specific environment, not in the wild. Stress is adaptive in natural conditions, it makes them stronger, faster and heal quickly (increased cellular growth) to the expense of their health... It's a tradeoff

I'm not embarassed AT ALL by the canadians efforts, giving money to the people is just going to enrich the tyranic elite and allow them to keep all their stolen wealth.

Pakistan just bought 1.7 billions of dollars worth of F-16 and would need only 400 millions to fix everything. The top 10% does not pay a cent of taxes. You CAN NOT compare Pakistan to Haiti...

Keep your money to save lives, this cause is wasted money
