YourTurn - 9/3/10

Watch for YourTurn normally scheduled to air at the end of Heartland News at Noon on Mondays and Fridays, at the end of Heartland News at 10:00 on Saturday nights, and following The Breakfast Show on Sunday mornings.

Deborah Quinton Dulworth from LaCenter, Kentucky:
"Regarding Mike Smythe's ViewPoint on the purity of ingredients in prescription drugs…I will swallow NO drugs today. Except for a daily capsule of fish oil to help fill a deficit of Omega 3 fatty acids in my diet, I avoid pills of all kinds. I still believe in and depend upon exercise and a good wholesome balanced diet of natural foods, not pills, to maintain good health. Advertising of prescription drugs and health related news dominates television…in my opinion, drugs should be banned from advertising (on television) just as cigarettes and liquor have been for many years…I don't expect to see my comments on KFVS12…still, people must learn to think for themselves and not depend on television for all of their information…I will swallow no pills and no television commercials today."

Brenda Williams from Bloomfield, Missouri:
"Mike Smythe talks about vapers (e-cigarette users) and hopes that (smoking in public places is banned) everywhere. I would rather have smoke in my space than someone in the public drinking… wine or beer. I would rather be in front of the smoker driving away from a public place than the person drinking…if you need proof, look me up."
