TELL CONGRESS TO END THE OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS ON OUR FARMS-a link to a petition.
I have a soft spot in my heart for all farm animals in general, but cows in particular. Having been raised on a farm, I remember questioning at a tender young age what we eating, then asking why we were eating these gentle creatures. There was no good, reasonable answer given, and like most kids of the 50's, I continued to do what I was told. I regret that it took me so many years to come to terms with the bad health ramifications of ingesting animal proteins and the horror, pain and suffering inflicted on factory farms and in slaughter houses. I vow to now do my part, exposing the truths behind the big business of exploiting animals for financial gain, since the undisputed fact is: consuming animal proteins causes cancer and a whole host of diseaes, and the enormous amounts of grain it takes to produce animal proteins could be used to feed the world, and alleviate world hunger! It's all about money....it usually is... Saving animals starts one bite at a time! Check out the link below to see one cows fight for survival!
June 18, 2011: Kayli, a young "beef breed" cow, made a dash for her life from a slaughterhouse just outside of Philadelphia. She was being loaded into the holding pen of the Madina Live Poultry market where goats, sheep, chickens and other animals awaited death. This particular market is a Halal slaughterhouse catering to Muslim customers, but such "live kill" markets are extremely common in urban areas — they sell meat to people from many different cultures. Kayli saw an opportunity and made a break for it--running through the streets for close to an hour searching for safety. Wouldn't anyone? But sadly she was captured by police and returned to the same pen with the other terrified, doomed animals.
