"Food Pets Die For: Shocking Facts About Pet Food." By Ann N. Martin. NewSage Press (1997).
Food Pets Die For; a Book Excerpt

Television commercials and magazine advertisements for pet food would have us believe that the meats, grains, and fats used in these foods could grace our dining tables. Chicken, beef, lamb, whole grains, and quality fats are supposedly the composition of dog and cat food.
In my opinion, when we purchase these bags and cans of commercial food, we are in most cases purchasing garbage. Unequivocally, I cannot state that all pet food falls into this category, but I have yet to find one that I could, in all good conscience, feed my dog or cats.

Pet food labels can be deceiving. They only provide half the story. The other half of the story is hidden behind obscure ingredients listed on the labels. Bit by bit, over seven years, I have been able to unearth information about what is contained in most commercial pet food. At first I was shocked, but my shock turned to anger when I realized how little the consumer is told about the actual contents of the pet food. As discussed in Chapter Two, companion animals from clinics, pounds, and shelters can and are being rendered and used as sources of protein in pet food. Dead-stock removal operations play a major role in the pet food industry. Dead animals, road kill that cannot be buried at roadside, and in some cases, zoo animals, are picked up by these dead stock operations. When an animal dies in the field or is killed due to illness or disability, the dead stock operators pick them up and truck them to the receiving plant. There the dead animal is salvaged for meat or, depending on the state of decomposition, delivered to a rendering plant. At the receiving plants, the animals of value are skinned and viscera removed. Hides of cattle and calves are sold for tanning. The usable meat is removed from the carcass, and covered in charcoal to prevent it from being used for human consumption. Then the meat is frozen, and sold as animal food, which includes pet food.
The packages of this frozen meat must be clearly marked as "unfit for human consumption." The rest of the carcass and poorer quality products including viscera, fat, etcetera, are sent to the rendering facilities. Rendering plants are melting pots for all types of refuse. Restaurant grease and garbage; meats and baked goods long past the expiration dates from supermarkets (Styrofoam trays and shrink-wrap included); the entrails from dead stock removal operations, and the condemned and contaminated material from slaughterhouses. All of these are rendered.
The slaughterhouses where cattle, pigs, goats, calves, sheep, poultry, and rabbits meet their fate, provide more fuel for rendering. After slaughter, heads, feet, skin, toenails, hair, feathers, carpal and tarsal joints, and mammary glands are removed. This material is sent to rendering. Animals who have died on their way to slaughter are rendered. Cancerous tissue or tumors and worm-infested organs are rendered. Injection sites, blood clots, bone splinters, or extraneous matter are rendered. Contaminated blood is rendered. Stomach and bowels are rendered. Contaminated material containing or having been treated with a substance not permitted by, or in any amount in excess of limits prescribed under the Food and Drug Act or the Environmental Protection Act. In other words, if a carcass contains high levels of drugs or pesticides this material is rendered.
Before rendering, this material from the slaughterhouse is "denatured," which means that the material from the slaughterhouse is covered with a particular substance to prevent it from getting back into the human food chain. In the United States the substances used for denaturing include: crude carbolic acid, fuel oil, or citronella. In Canada the denaturing agent is Birkolene B. When I asked, the Ministry of Agriculture would not divulge the composition of Birkolene B, stating its ingredients are a trade secret.
At the rendering plant, slaughterhouse material, restaurant and supermarket refuse, dead stock, road kill, and euthanized companion animals are dumped into huge containers. A machine slowly grinds the entire mess. After it is chipped or shredded, it is cooked at temperatures of between 220 degrees F. and 270 degrees F. (104.4 to 132.2 degrees C.) for twenty minutes to one hour. The grease or tallow rises to the top, where it is removed from the mixture. This is the source of animal fat in most pet foods. The remaining material, the raw, is then put into a press where the moisture is squeezed out. We now have meat and bone meal.
The Association of American Feed Control Officials in its "Ingredient Definitions," describe meat meal as the rendered product from mammal tissue exclusive of blood, hair, hoof, hide, trimmings, manure, stomach, and rumen (the first stomach or the cud of a cud chewing animal) contents except in such amounts as may occur unavoidably in good processing practices. In an article written by David C. Cooke, "Animal Disposal: Fact and Fiction," Cooke noted, "Can you imagine trying to remove the hair and stomach contents from 600,000 tons of dog and cats prior to cooking them?" It would seem that either the Association of American Feed Control Officials definition of meat meal or meat and bone meal should be redefined or it needs to include a better description of "good factory practices."
Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal (2001) is a book by investigative journalist Eric Schlosser that examines the local and global influence of the United States fast food industry. First serialized by Rolling Stone[1] in 1999, the book has drawn comparisons to Upton Sinclair's classic muckraking novel The Jungle.


The End of Food
In this carefully researched, vividly recounted narrative, Roberts lays out the stark economic realities beneath modern food—and shows how our system for making, marketing, and moving what we eat is growing less and less compatible with the billions of consumers that system was built to serve.
At the heart of The End of Food is a grim paradox: the rise of large-scale, hyper-efficient industrialized food production, though it generates more food more cheaply than at any time in history, has reached a point of dangerously diminishing returns. Our high-volume factory systems are creating new risks for food-borne illness—from E. coli to avian flu. Our high-yield crops and livestock generate grain, vegetables and meat of declining nutritional quality. Overproduction is so routine that nearly one billion people are now overweight or obese worldwide—and yet those extra calories are still so unevenly distributed that the same number of people—one billion, roughly one in every seven of us—can't get enough to eat. In some of the hardest-hit regions, such as sub-Saharan Africa, the lack of a single nutrient—vitamin A—has left more than 3 million children permanently blind.
Meanwhile, the shift to heavily mechanized, chemically intensive farming has so compromised the soils, water systems, and other natural infrastructure upon which all food production depends that it's unclear how long such output can be maintained. And just as we've begun to understand the limits of our industrialized superabundance, the burgeoning economies of Asia, where newly wealthy consumers are rapidly adopting Western-style, meat-heavy diets, are putting new demands on global food supplies.
Comprehensive and global, with lucid writing, dramatic detail and fresh insights, The End of Food offers readers new, accessible way to understand the vulnerable miracle of the modern food economy. Roberts presents clear, stark visions of the future and helps us prepare to make the decisions -- personal and global -- we must make to survive the demise of food production as we know it.

The End of Food
Super Size Me is a 2004 American documentary film directed by and starring Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker. Spurlock's film follows a 30-day time period (February to beginning of March 2003) during which he eats only McDonald's food. The film documents this lifestyle's drastic effects on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being, and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit. Spurlock dined at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, eating every item on the chain's menu. He also always "super-sized" his meal—but only if it was offered. Spurlock consumed an average of 20.92 megajoules or 5,000 kcal (the equivalent of 9.26 Big Macs) per day during the experiment. As a result, the then-32-year-old Spurlock gained 24½ lbs. (11.1 kg), a 13% body mass increase, a cholesterol level of 230, and experienced mood swings, sexual dysfunction, and fat accumulation to his liver. It took Spurlock fourteen months to lose the weight gained from his experiment.
The reason for Spurlock's investigation was the increasing spread of obesity throughout U.S. society, which the Surgeon General has declared "epidemic", and the corresponding lawsuit brought against McDonald's on behalf of two overweight girls, who, it was alleged, became obese as a result of eating McDonald's food [Pelman v. McDonald's Corp., [237 F. Supp. 2d 512 [1]. Spurlock points out that although the lawsuit against McDonald's failed (and subsequently many state legislatures have legislated against product liability actions against producers and distributors of "fast food"), much of the same criticism leveled against the tobacco companies applies to fast food franchises whose product is both physiologically addictive and physically harmful.[1][2]
The documentary was nominated for an Academy Award for Documentary Feature.[

McDonald's food is full of fat and not good for you?


Water is wet?
Up is up?
Down is down?

If people are stupid enough to eat that crap, then let them, just don't impose some kind of socialistic "health care system" that makes me pay for their medication and surgeries.

It seems like there will be no choice as to what kind of medicare is coming.
You yanks will get what we have suffered for decades.
You will find it is a mixed blessing, actually blessing and curse as it is nice to be looked after when you are injured, but you get little decision as to what kind of care.
And they are limiting the options even more.
Amazing what a well financed lobby group can do to change legal reality so that it favors the profits of the backers.

Cow slaughter [which embodies the sin, "Thou shall not Kill" ~what to speak of then eating the 'kill'] especially since the function, for all intents and purposes, of the Cow and her husband is to be "Mother" of society [the Cow & Bull (oxen-ized) is Agrarian Culture's rock-of-Gilbralta].

Yet, OTOH, slaughter and consumption of the flesh of the cow ---Leads to societal conflagration. This is the verdict of India's Vedas. This is what the Brahmins always taught the Warrior/Administrative Caste ['kshatriyas' --('protectors of the field')].

So soon after Upton Sinclair's the book 'The Jungle' emerge for the 'un-carved block' ---the civilised western world sent their most handsome University Graduates followed by common mens everywhere to a War Field.

<<<Its 2010, have you read your Bhagavad-Gita as it is as translated by A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami yet? >>>

And now something for all those up and coming stupid vapid insipid gallery gagglers:

Spiritually bankrupt commerical advertising.

A Burger-King "hideous" food-prep hawked by a Flying-Pig Man.

A Burger-king commercial that has taken the idea that
Kali yuga is a time of the ignorant leading the ignorant to its enth degree.

[SIZE=+0]You will not believe your eyes!! [/SIZE]
Next it will be Herman Monster in the white house saying "White Meat to Eat Please" as a slogan.

This is a commercial meant to lure suseptable customers to take heed!

Instead of handsom spokesmen ---the is a hideous creature asking us to join in the eating of another "hideous" food-prep.

[SIZE=+0]A] BurgerKing Commercial: [/SIZE][SIZE=+0]Half-man-half-pig-half-bird advises us to eat their slop (to attract customers):[/SIZE]

Don't you love this yuga?:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
Since the golden age is the yuga where we are the most enlightened and god-like, then this yuga is the one we are the most animalistic, so these things which are so perverse actually make sense, not that I condone them, but I see why it is so.

But this too is passing.

Ahh, does everyone remember when a liter of Milk was cheaper than a liter of petrol??

Those must have been gay ole times indeed.

Alas, the status quo is Milk MUST COST MORE THAN Petrol! Yes? Oh Yeah! That's right baby!

To think of all those rumptured pipe lines along African outbacks that explode and take local denizens straight to that petrol paradise in the sky.

Alas, Milk is not combustable. At least mom's meat is eatable after she dries up.

sardornic-sisms by,
If one is going to sermonize on the Ten Commandments, do not be ignorant of the Ten Commandments. The word translated as "kill" in older English versions actually specifically means "murder" in the sense of "unlawful and intentional killing of a human being".

Failure to actually know ones subject makes one only look tendentious and foolish.

"Thou shall not Kill [Murder]" ~what to speak of then eating the 'kill [the Murdered Corpse]'

Eating killed sub-humans is the preferred cuisine.
Eating murdered humans is 'not cricket'.


Not to be confused with Semites; nor with the eating of crickets.

BTW, speaking of semantics:
Your logic is "Terrific"!
[feel free to Extrapolate alternative meanings to your dog-heart's content]

"Your Honor, my client only killed that man; but he certainly did not murder that man.
My client is a killer, not a murderer. Anyway, my client is only guilty of Canabalising that man he killed. So he not lawfully a murderer."

I didn't realise Dogbrain was familar with 6,000 year old hebrew synonyms.

So it is alright to kill --especially when there are so many murderers out there.

But capitol Punishment is not universally upheld as the most merciful means for treating murderers ---too bad that the surviving victims of attempted murder must always pay their tax increases promptly or they'll get murdered by the legal system.

The logic is clear isn't it!
Here's some homework DogBrain, when you're not barking at passing car tires.

As inspired by the book "Fastfood Nation":

1] Create a city map that shows your local slums
and place a "push-pin" at all the meat-monger-vendor locations.

and then,

2] Repeat the same process by placing a "push-pin" at all the homicide locations meantioned on the front pages of your News Tabloids [before the Employ adverts & Sports tallies & the Telly schedules].

You will need extra "push-pins".

The logic is clear isn't it!
Failure to actually know ones subject makes one ignorantly blissfull ---like a beast. No?

BTW, what do you think the ratio of Killed corpse(s), is to murdered corpse(s) ???

Are all killed corpses Kosher?
"Correlation fallacy".

Really--do learn basic logic.

Likewise, the Hebrews did not consider killing a food animal to be murder.

I realize that you revel in your ignorance of both Judaism and Christianity--it is the only thing that permits you to indulge in the lie that Hari Krishna is somehow identical to the "real" meaning of Christian doctrine.
Dearest Dog,

Thank you for your kind thrown gauntlet.

Let the best man be a Vegetarian!

Devotional serviced to Godhead [aka, Bhakti yoga ---the the school ultra-orthodox yoga propagated by the HARE KRISHNA ~Trandition! Tradition!!].

I'm a Zionist!

Vegetarianism is all about ‘AHIMSA—non-violence”. Not about our sentiments. Meatless living is all about warding-off bad (ugra-) karma for humans. It’s not about compassion for the animals welfare but about the welfare of children being indoctrinated into a life based on killing inorder to live up to a false standard of ‘living’.

The cow is sacred because = the cow is the quintessentially perfect species for agrarian society—the husband of the cow ‘the bull’ is the best beast of burden for farm life; the cow gives milk, cheese(s), yogurt, butter, panir, ghee, ice cream, whip cream, caramel sweets, medicinal urine, fuel, fertilizer. Oxen, leather.

Our (B-)Rabbinical breatheren, the Jews, the descendents of Judah, who make Koshering of meat a religious ritual are the authorities that we must go to argue with, armed with scriptural references, to convince the Biblical scholars of the extent of the consequences of meat eating; especially the cow.

"Oh maybe in a Hundred years . . . there will be peace in all the world" --from the play "Three Sisters" cir 1880's by Anton Chekhov.

Those were the hopefull decades of enlightened intelligensia ---but alas, it was simply wishfull thinking by those that were exempt from being born amongst the lower classes of the era ---but there was those in the know, ie: Waldo Emerson, Upton Sinclair ("The Jungle") and how about Dickens:

Charles Dickens’ 19th Century English novel “Oliver Twist” [about the orphan boy named Oliver] starts with the Schoolmaster of the orphan-asylum arriving at the home of the new foster parents, inorder to the retrieve Oliver whose tantrums had made trouble for himself and his newest adopting parents. Upon arriving at the home, the Schoolmaster unlocked the closet whence the boy was arrested by the parent. As he drags the boy back to the orphanage the Schoolmaster scolded the parents thus, “I told you not to feed the boy meat, I told you to feed him porridge”.

While your past re-births were embroiled in so many mundane chewing of the cud and you are accustomed to daily violence with out hope of it ending ---I say, Welcome to the Future Dogbrain!

Check out the very beginning of the child's film
"The Muppit Movie"
which starts with Dom DeLouise asking Kermit the frog,
"Can you help me? I'm disoriented" and
Kermit the frog answers, "Have you tried Hare Krishna?"

your bhakta-janah,

There once was a novice student that challenged Matreya with the charge,
"Correlation fallacy"-- Really--do learn basic logic.

Matreya replied, "First, Learn what is meant by the word 'Ahimsa' in the context of Dharma. Second, Try not to get lost in the forest wearing pink".
Pharmacists give themselves cancer from dispensing toxic chemotherapy chemicals


One of the side effects of chemotherapy is, ironically, cancer. The cancer doctors don't say much about it, but it's printed right on the chemo drug warning labels (in small print, of course). If you go into a cancer treatment clinic with one type of cancer, and you allow yourself to be injected with chemotherapy chemicals, you will often develop a second type of cancer as a result. Your oncologist will often claim to have successfully treated your first cancer even while you develop a second or third cancer directly caused by the chemo used to treat the original cancer.

There's nothing like cancer-causing chemotherapy to boost repeat business, huh?

During all this, the pharmacists are peddling these toxic chemotherapy chemicals to their customers as if they were medicine (which they aren't). While preparing these toxic chemical prescriptions, it turns out that pharmacists are exposing themselves to cancer-causing chemotherapy agents in the process. And because of that, pharmacists are giving themselves cancer... and they're dying from it.

Chemotherapy drugs are extremely toxic to the human body, and they are readily absorbed through the skin. The very idea that they are even used in modern medicine is almost laughable if it weren't so downright disturbing and sad that hundreds of thousands of people are killed each year around the world by chemotherapy drugs.

Now you can add pharmacists to that statistic. For decades, they simply looked the other way, pretending they were playing a valuable role in our system of "modern" medicine, not admitting they were actually doling out chemicals that killed people. Now, the sobering truth has struck them hard: They are in the business of death, and it is killing them off, one by one.

The Seattle Times now reports the story of Sue Crump, a veteran pharmacist of two decades who spent much of her time dispensing chemotherapy drugs. Sue died last September of pancreatic cancer, and one of her dying wishes was that the truth would be told about how her on-the-job exposure to chemotherapy chemicals contributed to her own cancer.

Truthfully, chemotherapy has more in common with chemicals weapons than any legitimate medicine.

So today, while workers are protected from secondhand smoke in offices across the country, pharmacists are still being exposed every single day to toxic, cancer-causing chemicals that OSHA seems to just ignore. The agency has only issued one citation in the last decade to a hospital for inadequate safety handling of toxic chemotherapy drugs.

As the Seattle Times reports, "A just-completed study from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) -- 10 years in the making and the largest to date -- confirms that chemo continues to contaminate the work spaces where it's used and in some cases is still being found in the urine of those who handle it..."
