Exclamation Food of the Gods

A pro football player named Morgan is on the island for a hunting trip with his buddies when one of them is stung to death by Giant Wasps.. After ferrying his friends back to the mainland,he returns to investigate.. Also thrown into the mix are Thomas and Rita , an expecting couple; Jack Bensington, the owner of a dog food company, who hopes to market the substance; and Bens assistant Lorna,a "lady bacteriologist".
In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία) is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods (or demigods), often depicted as conferring immortality upon whoever consumed it.. It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves, so it may have been thought of in the Homeric tradition as a kind of divine exhalation of the Earth..Ambrosia is very closely related to the gods' other form of sustenance, nectar..Asafoetida is the dried latex exuded from the rhizome or tap root of several species of Ferula, a perennial herb that grows 1 to 1.5 m tall.. The species is native to the deserts of Iran, mountains of Afghanistan, and is mainly cultivated in nearby India..It is also known as asant, food of the gods, giant fennel, jowani badian, stinking gum, Devil's dung, hing, kayam and ting... is by nature the dominator drug par excellence. Control of content, uniformity of content, repeatability of content make it inevitably a tool of coersion, brainwashing, and manipulation...
