It's all too confusing now.  I used to get a little hot seeing that avatar, knowing it was jnjn - I've seen the #1s. Then webdude and tasb come along and co-opt that image.  And now I'm just feeling a little skeeved out... :undecided:

Yeah, thinking about TASB's shoes just doesn't have the same effect.  I've never seen webdude's shoes, but I'm willing to bet they ain't that exciting. :bowl:

Don't forget to grow a buncha herbs.  They're generally more expensive to buy fresh.  Basil = pesto!

"What happens to the arsenic fed to chickens?

Turns out that when you feed arsenical drugs to livestock, the arsenic doesn't just magically disappear. Instead, trace amounts of arsenic fed to chicken are excreted in their manure -- and when hundreds of thousands of chickens are raised on a factory farm year after year, the arsenic can accumulate pretty quickly, eventually contaminating soil, groundwater and surface waters.

 

But not all the arsenic is excreted in manure; some portion also ends up in the poultry meat that U.S. consumers eat every day. The newly published CLF study is the first to quantify concentrations of specific forms of arsenic (most notably inorganic arsenic) within chicken meat, and the first to directly compare arsenic concentrations in meat samples from birds likely raised with arsenical drugs to samples from chickens raised without these drugs."

 And this is why I eat free range, grass fed beef from a trusted source, and a trusted butcher.

 

I know this is a thread about not eating meat, and if someone chooses to not eat meat to not eat an animal, I 100% agree on your choice. However, if you avoid meat for reasons like this, you should know that there are options out there, you just have to be selective on what you eat, and where you get it.

But a new Harvard study out Monday revealed that eating a single serving of red meat per day might increased the risk of early death by 13 percent. And, according to the research, a daily serving of processed meat, including one hotdog or two strips of bacon, carried an even greater risk at 20 percent increased risk of early death.

"It's not really surprising because red meat consumption has been linked to an increased risk of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease and cancer," Dr. Frank Hu, co-author of the study, told ABCNews.com Monday. "What is surprising is the magnitude of risk associated with very moderate red meat consumption."

plant-based diet made it into the blue zone - from three areas on earth with the longest life spans:

 

"Residents of the first three places produce a high rate of centenarians, suffer a fraction of the diseases that commonly kill people in other parts of the developed world, and enjoy more healthy years of life"

sure maggots prolly won't kill ya, but many might prefer to know they are eating them. :)

 

and lots of times what people don't know could kill them, including babies crawling out into the middle of traffic, kids not knowing to avoid dropping electric things into baths, not knowing you have a fatal peanut allergy, Joanna Nash who didn't know she was eating a burger tainted with  E.coli0157 and died a few days later from kidney failure...

When undercover investigators made their way onto Chinese fur farms, they found that many animals are still alive and struggling desperately when workers flip them onto their backs or hang them up by their legs or tails to skin them. When workers on these farms begin to cut the skin and fur from an animal's leg, the free limbs kick and writhe. Workers stomp on the necks and heads of animals who struggle too hard to allow a clean cut. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxVwsA2MLWA&feature=pla

yer_embedded When the fur is finally peeled off over the animals' heads, their naked, bloody bodies are thrown onto a pile of those who have gone before them. Some are still alive, breathing in ragged gasps and blinking slowly. Some of the animals' hearts are still beating five to 10 minutes after they are skinned. One investigator recorded a skinned raccoon dog on the heap of carcasses who had enough strength to lift his bloodied head and stare into the camera. Before they are skinned alive, animals are pulled from their cages and thrown to the ground; workers bludgeon them with metal rods or slam them on hard surfaces, causing broken bones and convulsions but not always immediate death. Undercover investigators from Swiss Animal Protection/EAST International toured fur farms in China's Hebei Province, and it quickly became clear why outsiders are banned from visiting. There are no penalties for abusing animals on fur farms in China—farmers can house and slaughter animals however they see fit. The investigators found horrors beyond their worst imaginings and concluded, "Conditions on Chinese fur farms make a mockery of the most elementary animal welfare standards. In their lives and their unspeakable deaths, these animals have been denied even the simplest acts of kindness." Living Hell On these farms, foxes, minks, rabbits, and other animals pace and shiver in outdoor wire cages, exposed to driving rain, freezing nights, and, at other times, scorching sun. Mother animals, who are driven crazy from rough handling and intense confinement and have nowhere to hide while giving birth, often kill their babies after delivering litters. http://www2.peta.org/site/PageServer?pagename=skinned_alive The globalization of the fur trade has made it impossible to know where fur products come from. China supplies more than half of the finished fur garments imported for sale in the United States. Even if a fur garment's label says it was made in a European country, the animals were likely raised and slaughtered elsewhere—possibly on an unregulated Chinese fur farm. Please think about when you buy a fur! The only way to prevent such unimaginable cruelty is never to wear any fur.  Fur comes from the extremely cruel fur industry. We have absolutely no right to remove the skins of animals and wear them ourselves. We are the paying consumers- we create the demand! Don't contribute to animal suffering.
