English: Boris the bull was rescued by Hillside Animal Sanctuary in England, from an industrial farm where the awful conditions under which animals are kept made him ill. Once rescued, he was cared for at the sanctuary, but he didn’t survive. Before he died with the carer by his side, he cried, real tears, perhaps from gratitude to his carer, perhaps from sadness because he knew he was losing the battle. All animals have feelings and suffer.

Español: Boris el toro fue rescatado por Hillside Animal Sanctuary, Inglaterra, de una granja de producción industrial donde las espantosas condiciones de existencia lo habían enfermado. Aunque una vez rescatado se le proporcionaron todos los cuidados, no logró sobrevivir. Antes de morir, Boris lloró con su cuidadora, quizá por agradecimiento, quizá por pena por no tener ya mas fuerzas. Todos los animales sienten y sufren.

Researchers Keep Finding More Ways Our Flawed Agriculture Model Breeds Antibiotic Resistance

April 14, 2015|302,646views


By Dr. Mercola

American farmers routinely use antibiotics to make their livestock grow bigger and faster (in addition to preventing disease caused by cramped, filthy quarters, and an unnatural diet). As a result of decades of this practice, antibiotic-resistance in humans has dramatically risen.

According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention1 (CDC), two million American adults and children become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria each year, and at least 23,000 of them die as a direct result.

A recent report commissioned by UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, estimates that by 2050 antibiotic resistance will have killed 300 million people; the annual global death toll reaching 10 million. Experts are now…

Denmark’s Drug-Free Pigs


Later On

Barry Estabrook writes in the NY Times:

PRESIDENT OBAMA didn’t need to issue a $1.2 billion National Action Plan for Combating Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria, which he did last week, to figure out how the United States could reduce the antibiotic-resistant bacteria created by the country’s agriculture industry. He could have simply spent a day with Kaj Munck, a Danish hog farmer.

Mr. Munck is a husky, loquacious man who lives about an hour south of Copenhagen. His operation looks and smells a lot like the factory pig farms I have visited in the American Midwest. The 12,000 pigs he raises each year — making his operation larger than the average American producer — live in cramped stalls with hard floors inside low-slung warehouselike structures. Mr. Munck can produce pork at prices low enough to compete in the same international markets as American pork. In fact, a large number…

Pit Bull Kidnapped In 2013 Miraculously Comes Home ​—​ With 10 Puppies

By Sarah V SchweigFollow

Fed nothing but chicken feed and held captive for more than a year, a resilient pit bull has finally been rescued from kidnappers and returned home to her family.

WBTW13Nina Louise was stolen in December of 2013 from the front yard of Northam and April Morris’s home in Bennettsville, South Carolina, reports local news station WBTW 13.

‚Alien-Like Creature‘ From Tragic Viral Video Has Been Rescued

By Stephen Messenger

An endangered bear with a mysterious illness has been found and rescued more than two months after footage of the „alien-like“ animal went viral online.

„The bear is in a good and safe place,“ Nickson Robi, from the Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC), told The Dodo. „She has eaten the food and drank the water we gave. But she still is hairless and sick, and we need to find out what the sickness is.“

YouTube/The Borneo Post SEEDSThe „strange“ animal was first spotted in late January by a group of plantation workers near the village of Sibu in Borneo. Uncertain of what she was, the workers reportedly hit her with sticks, driving her back into the forest.

A video showing the animal fleeing her attackers has been viewed online nearly…

McDonald’s Downfall: Even Kids Aren’t Eating Fast Food Anymore

mcdonalds-kids-fast-food

Despite the billions in endless marketing on all major children’s programming avenues, even kids are eating less disease-breeding fast food. That’s the declaration from the latest statistical study on fast food consumption that comes along just as McDonald’s continues to lose profits month after month.

And we’re not talking about a small change here. You have to remember that the fast food industry absolutely thrives on convincing children to eat their chemical-laden garbage. It’s the heart of their ‘unchanging market’ as I would call it. A market that, quite unfortunately, cannot process the reality of what they’re eating.

After all, how many times do you recall chowing down on some french fries as a young child and only thinking about the next bite? You weren’t concerned with the toxic ingredients like high-fructose corn syrup, MSG, trans fat, plastic yoga mat chemicals, preservatives…
