Fix the Fairy tails…

Fairy tails; Veggie Propaganda, a Catchy, Sing-song Animation. Fix the Fairy tails…

Veggie Propaganda is a quirky, sing-song animation that puts a spotlight on animals, our relationship with them and their rights. It explores childhood myths about animals vs. the reality of their lives in a human-centered world, where our food really comes from and how by simply eating less meat individuals can make an astounding positive impact on their health, their finances and the environment. This 2D fine-art/digital animation features original music performed by New York City band, The Penultimate.

Most Chicken Harbors Harmful Bacteria

Most Chicken Harbors Harmful Bacteria

83% of Chickens Tested for Consumer Reports Had 1 of 2 Sickening Bacteria.

Consumer Reports says — that “fresh poultry may [does] carry naturally occurring bacteria and should be properly handled and cooked,”

Dec. 4, 2006 — Even if you go for the more expensive organic or antibiotic-free chicken, the chicken you buy at the grocery store probably contains bacteria that can make you sick.

Careful handling and aggressive cooking can reduce, but not remove the risk!!!

A startling 83% of the chickens tested in the recent Consumer Reports investigation were contaminated with one or both of the leading bacterial causes of food-borne disease — salmonella and campylobacter.

That is way up from the results of 49% in 2003, when the group last reported on contamination in chickens, and similar to the contamination found in 1997, when almost three-fourths of the broilers Consumer Reports tested were positive for salmonella or campylobacter.

In their new report, “Dirty Birds”, investigators with Consumers Union, which publishes Consumer Reports, concluded that paying more for a chicken does not increase your chances of getting one free of illness-causing bacteria.

In fact chickens labeled as organic or raised without antibiotics and costing $3 to $5 per pound were more likely to harbor salmonella than were conventionally produced broilers that cost more like $1 a pound.

Jean Halloran of Consumers Union reports that fewer than one if five birds tested (17%) were free of both pathogens (Not free from all pathogens only those two for which they were tested), that’s the lowest percentage of clean birds recorded since the group began testing chickens eight years ago.

Investigators for the independent consumer group tested 525 whole broiler chickens from leading brands like Perdue, Tyson, Pilgrim’s Pride, and Foster Farms, as well as organic and other brands raised without antibiotics.

The chickens were purchased at supermarkets, mass retailers, gourmet shops, and natural food stores in 23 states in the spring of 06.

Among the findings:

15% of chickens tested were contaminated with salmonella, compared to the 12% reported by Consumers Union in 2003.

81% harbored campylobacter, up from 42% in 2003. This bug is the main identified cause of bacterial diarrhea illness in the world.

13% of chickens were contaminated with both bacteria, up from 5% in 2003.

84% of the salmonella organisms analyzed and 67% of the campylobacter were resistant to one or more antibiotics. In the 2003 report, 34% of the salmonella and 90% of campylobacter were resistant.

“The problem of antibiotic resistance is related to both the widespread use of antibiotics in animal feed to promote growth and the widespread use in humans,” Halloran says.

Major brands tested did not show better results than smaller brands, overall, based on tests of 78 chickens from each brand.

Halloran says it is clear routine testing is needed.

“81% [campylobacter] contamination is intolerable, in our view,” she says.

The Pastures Aren’t So Green

The Pastures Aren’t So Green

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories.

The following is excerpted from the GoVeg site @ http://www.goveg.com/factoryFarming.asp

The green pastures and idyllic barnyard scenes of years past are now distant memories. On today’s factory farms, animals are crammed by the thousands into filthy windowless sheds, wire cages, gestation crates, and other confinement systems. These animals will never raise their families, root in the soil, build nests, or do anything that is natural to them. They won’t even feel the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto trucks bound for slaughter.

Animal Communicator

Animal Communicator

In this wonderful mixed-up world there are 1001 empty justifications for animal abuse.

Interestingly, a great number of flimsy excuses are recited by self proclaimed “Animal Lovers“. Just the other day I overheard it again. I have heard numerous versions many times before. The conflicting statement generally stems from a discussion about the best diet for one’s pet. This time, per usual, the speaker was a thoughtful animal lover. Typically, but not always, the animal-lover/animal-abuser is intelligent, articulate, and a loving person. She/he may even be a devoted caregiver, and/or work with her/his healing hands in the health care field. This is a person who “Thinks” and “Cares”, albeit, selectively. This is a person who will do anything for the welfare of her companion.

The declaration usually proclaims something to the effect that; “I contacted such n’ such Animal Communicator” or “Over the years I have talked to many Animal Communicators…” The interaction with the ANIMAL COMMUNICATOR leaves the client feeling assured that the animals sacrificed [murdered] by humans for lunch-and-fashion are happy, even honored to serve the “Higher” beings in this way. The comforting assurance being based on the report(s) directly from the various non-human subjects through the psychically attuned medium are often just what the client was hoping for.

No Meal is an Island

No Meal is an Island

When you fuel your being with the products of compassion and wholesome-ness, you become a product of compassion and wholesome-ness.

If you fuel yourself with the products of pollution, pain, inefficiency and failure, you are a product of pollution, pain, inefficiency and failure.

There is a lot connected to (Many fingers of association) the production of a food. And all of the embodied, accumulated history of the food’s life becomes part of the body and “Energy” of the consumer.

Koreans Say U.S. MAD COW is Bull

Koreans Say U.S. MAD COW is Bull

South Koreans took to the streets. Young and old, people from all walks of life protested in huge numbers and in no uncertain terms, the lifting of the ban on proven dangerous U.S. beef. Some in the Korean government have bowed to the unfair and unrelenting pressures from the U.S. and the powerful cattlemen’s lobby.

80,000 Protest US Beef Imports in South Korea

In South Korea, public outcry over the lifting of a ban on US beef continues to bring the country to a standstill.

On Tuesday, more than 80,000 people took to the streets of Seoul to demand the ban be reimposed.

It was the largest rally so far since daily protests began more than a month ago. The entire South Korean cabinet has offered to resign in response to the protests. South Korean lawmaker Kang Gi-gap said the cabinet had been ignoring the people’s wishes.

Potluck, or Guess Who Else is Coming to Dinner

Potluck, or Guess Who Else is Coming to Dinner

What’s not to like about potlucks?

Many of my SAD (Standard American Diet) friends seem to have trouble understanding why some of my CAD (Compassion Affirming Diet) friends sometimes shy away from full participation in potluck functions.

Most CAD people that I know love to eat. Typically we very much appreciate the preparation, presentation, arrangement, color-play, aroma, texture, flavor etc. of a good meal, we even find it fulfilling to contemplate where all of the ingredients came from; the apples in the cobbler starting from a seed, growing into a tree, the tree sprouting fragrant blossoms, blossoms giving way to tiny sour apples, the growing apples drawing nutrients up through the structure of the tree, while swinging in the breeze, basking in the sun and bathing in the rain.

We think about, and give thanks for the nature-given orbs getting juicier and sweeter everyday until their weight demands picking. We are generally delighted at the beauty; aroma, color array and creativity displayed, and appreciate the care and laboring of love that brings such healthful layouts to the party.

The friendly, generous and well-meaning SAD folks in attendance generally offer a distinctly different type of presentation.

The first sensory experience that usually hits me when arriving at the party is a powerful and often nauseating olfactory sensation. This sensation immediately triggers a certain sadness.

Just as the scent of progressively rotting body parts that permeates the ‘common air’ near the meat counter in a supermarket, and most regrettably in many pseudo-natural food stores as well, sickens the sensitivities of the inhaler, so is the scent of ‘heat-treated’ cadavers on display at the party a bit challenging to handle even for the heartiest of plant eating folks who understand what is represented by the sometimes cleverly disguised meaty dishes.

It is well to keep in mind that the ‘scent’ or ‘smell’ results from actual physical particles of the stuff behind the glass or on the table coming into intimate contact with receptors in the scull. The scent of rotting flesh may be experienced as mildly offensive, horrendously objectionable, or even pleasurable, I am told, depending on the mindset, programming, culture affiliation or ‘source-knowledge’ of the person having the experience. So, while some, passing by the bloody counter/table will be powerfully repulsed, many will think nothing of it. It will, in fact smell just like the interior of the refrigerator at home.

But for the oblivious and the aware alike, there is no sensation of smell, no activation of the olfactory mechanism, unless, as stated, particles, millions of them, actually come into contact with living tissue in the head of the person doing the smelling. Along with the particles of flesh, blood and bone, Etc., are also millions of disease-producing microorganisms, mostly bacteria. Everyone breathing that air gets the little bugs, and takes them home, now circulating throughout the bloodstream, for free, like it or not… No purchase required.
