"Cows are injected with bovine growth hormone, causing the animal to be highly diseased. They are given massive amounts of antibiotics and other drug injections, making them diseased and sick. They do not exercise. And when they are slaughtered, the trauma that the animal experiences during the slaughtering and killing process spews adrenaline into the tissue. The animals routinely die in their own urine and feces. The animals are butchered and produced in a manner where they are full of pathogens, disease, bacteria, germs, and disease-causing agents."

"For example, in a remarkable animal study, examination of the brains of sacrificed animals showed that 85% of the brain cells observed in the animals exposed to chronic stress showed signs of degeneration. It is this type of cellular degeneration that can lead to long-term cognitive difficulties. Amazingly, when Ashwagandha was administered to chronically stressed animals, the number of degenerating brain cells was reduced by 80%! (Jain S, Shukla SD, Sharma K, Bhatnager M. Phytother Res. 2001 Sep;15(6):544-8)."

"ANIMALS Although people may say they are allergic to cats, horses or birds, in fact they are allergic to 'dander', the tiny particles of skin and hair that the animal sheds constantly. Even entering a house where a cat has been in the past can give susceptible people an asthma attack. Avoiding that particular type of animal is really the only solution for such asthmatics. OTHER ALLERGENS Of course, there are many other allergens that cause asthma."

"If you're bitten by a dog or other domestic animal, especially if it was an unprovoked attack or the animal is obviously sick, and the bite breaks the skin, the animal must be checked for rabies. If the bite is from a squirrel, raccoon, or other wild animal, assume that the animal is rabid and seek medical attention immediately. And while bites from a large animal such as a horse or camel may look benign, they should be examined by a physician."

"And when they are slaughtered, the trauma that the animal experiences during the slaughtering and killing process spews adrenaline into the tissue. The animals routinely die in their own urine and feces. The animals are butchered and produced in a manner where they are full of pathogens, disease, bacteria, germs, and disease-causing agents. The meat itself is not natural, it is unhealthy, it is loaded with drugs, growth hormone, as well as feces and urine. The meat is aged, allowing more bacteria to grow."

"The pig is cooked for a long time, the fat is skimmed off, and the rest of the animal is used in a stewlike dish. "Okinawa people eat most every part of the pig," Taira said. "There is a lot of vitamin Bl and B2 in it, and collagen, which is good for you." This was different from many Japanese, who derive more of their protein from fish. Too much animal protein can increase your chances of obesity; the Okinawan centenarians traditionally ate meat only during infrequent ceremonial occasions. THE POWER OF THE GARDEN On our fifth day, I got an unexpected call from Craig. Dr."

"Lewis Mumford (1895-1990) Man is a metaphysical animal. • Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860) Man is the only animal that laughs and weeps; for he is the only animal that is struck with the difference between what things are, and what they ought to be. • William Hazlitt (1778-1830) It bothers some dualists to note how much we have in common with nonhu-man animals. Descartes thought that humans have souls, but that nonhuman animals do not. And this is certainly a big difference, if it's true. For Descartes, the soul or mind was the theater of conscious experience."

"Its products are not tested on animals and none of them contain animal by-products. However, the company's claim that none of the ingredients it uses has been tested on animals since the 1960s is disingenuous. Several of their skin-care products contain ingredients that have been shown to be effective through animal testing done in the 1990s, including sunscreen, vitamin C, and alpha hydroxy acids.

"Seven grams of protein equals an ounce of animal protein foods. If you weigh 150 pounds, you will be having a minimum of 8 to 9 ounces (56 to 63 grams) of animal protein (such as beef, chicken and lamb) each day. Remember, though, this does not mean that having an 8-ounce steak for dinner fulfills your protein requirement. The daily protein should be broken up into three servings, one at each meal. Eating a huge amount of protein at one time creates a lot of work for your body since it takes a lot of work to break down. Don't make your body suffer by trying to do it all at once. "

"The same thing happens when the amygdala of an animal is removed. The animal loses its capacity for fear and anger. It also withdraws from social relations with other animals. But what occurs when the amygdala of an animal is stimulated"? Of course: The opposite happens. The most dramatic evidence of this was seen when the amygdalas of animals were stimulated with mild electrical charges. In experiments, cats and monkeys were allowed to trigger the stimulation of their own amygdalas. When they were given this opportunity, they did it incessantly—up to ten thousand times per hour!"

"In case you thought this section might be about complementary and alternative therapies for animals here's a website for the International Alliance for animal Therapy and Healing at www.iaath.com. As with people, care for animals is becoming more holistic too. USER COMMENTS: "I was visiting the West Valley Children's Crisis nursery weekly with my dog. With my history, I really wanted to give back to kids, of any size and age, what ever I could and also do something fun with my furry friend. I'd heard such incredible stories about the impact the teams had made with some of the children."

"Chloroform, "because of its animal carcinogenicity and likely hazard to human health." • Vinyl chloride, as an ingredient in aerosol products, because of its carcinogenic effects. • Methylene chloride, "because of its animal carcinogenicity and likely hazard to human health." In 1979, the FDA expressed concerns about significant nitrosamine contamination "in a variety of cosmetic products." The Agency asked "for voluntary industry action," and left open the possibility of taking regulatory steps."

"Genetic engineering can create virus-resistant and protein-rich plants, improved breeds of animals, vast supplies of animal proteins, and microorganisms capable of producing proteins and hormones and improving photosynthesis, but it can also produce lethal biological weapons and pathogenic microorganisms and destroy the diversity and the balance of nature."

"Animal studies suggest that the lower the levels of magnesium, the more rapidly the animal ages and the sooner it is likely to die. Young animals who are deprived of magnesium develop vascular changes and neuromuscular abnormalities that resemble the health problems of aging animals—yet when these younger animals are given magnesium supplements their aging symptoms disappear. Clearly, magnesium protects the cells against aging in a variety of ways."

"All four are in evidence throughout the animal kingdom, and are evolutionarily designed to save us from immediate physical danger. Yet unlike most animals, stress for humans is not so much about actual physical danger, it's about social behavior. Your most recent stress reactions, like rapid breathing, shakiness, and increased heart rate, were likely to be your response to speaking in public or an argument. We've all seen people respond physically to social stressors. Picture someone you know who always resorts to fight or preemptive attack when cornered."

"Animal rights activists gathered and protested at the zoo because they didn't like that Snowball had been turned into a docile caged animal. Snowball was taken off Prozac. In America, schools resist children being taken off behavior modifying drugs, no matter how serious the ill effects. If only they treated children with the humanity extended to a zoo animal. Below is the statement of September 29, 2000, from Patricia Weathers, speaking during a Congressional inquiry into schools pushing ADHD drugs."

"Bring out the animal in you. Animals are another image that helps people become less clumsy. "What is the most graceful animal that you can think of? A cheetah? An eagle?" Dr. Gersten asks. "Imagine yourself as that animal. Feel yourself as that animal. Feel how every muscle in your body works together. Feel the wind in your face as you run or soar through the air in perfect balance with yourself and with nature." Practice this imagery for five to ten minutes whenever your self-esteem is low because of an episode of clumsiness."

"An example of such an adjustment in the rest of the animal kingdom is the thickening of an animal's coat prior to winter. The animal's body obviously cannot wait for the first snowfall to be reminded that it is time to put on its overcoat. This system of responding to light is very important, inasmuch as animals in their natural environments breed on a seasonal basis and therefore need to have their bodily functions closely synchronized with nature. The degree of this synchronization, however, is directly related to where the animals live."

"Studies also suggest that diets with a higher ratio of animal to vegetable proteins increase the rate of bone loss in women 65 and older. In an observational study, women whose diets contained the highest proportion of animal protein were almost four times more likely to suffer a fractured hip than women whose primary source of protein was vegetables. This is just a sampling of some of the research that doesn't get pushed out into the public's awareness by commercial sponsors. Where might you find additional information about bone health to guide your decisions?"

"To circumvent this major limitation, researchers turned again to animal "models." In these models, observable, quantifiable behaviors in animals are presumed to bear some relationship to depression in humans. Among the animal models used for antidepressants is screening for drugs that heighten aggression. The studies involve giving drugs to selected members in colonies of laboratory animals. Observers then evaluate the medication-enhanced animals for their aggressive behavior."

"The EPA lists 1,4-dioxane as a probable human carcinogen, while the National Toxicology Program recognizes it as an animal carcinogen. Most parents and caregivers are unaware that the FDA does not require safety testing on cosmetics before they are sold to the public, which means that manufacturers can legally sell many products containing a cocktail of unproven, potentially unsafe chemicals. Thousands of these products are marketed to children. For a listing of the products tested, and the amounts of 1,4-dioxane found in each, visit: www.ewg .org/issues_content/cosmetics/pdf/14-dioxane.pdf."

"Free radicals are atoms or group of atoms that has at least one unpaired electron and is therefore unstable and highly reactive. In animal tissues, free radicals can damage cells and are believed to accelerate the progression of cancer, cardiovascular disease and age-related diseases. and chemicals added to the food we eat. Even the air that we breathe contains free radicals." "How do they cause the body damage? " Dr."

"Kids' immune systems are suppressed—you can't have normal immune function on a diet with so much processed foods and animal products and a diet so low in fruits and vegetables and beans and nuts and seeds. You can't expose the body to so many immune-stimulating challenges and not expect to have some damages in the DNA." Toxic Triggers and Childhood Cancer I had many different motivations for founding my environmental center, but fighting childhood cancer was always at the top of my list."

"Yes, it does a great job of absorbing moisture, but it has also been linked to cancer in some animal studies—do you really want your baby to come into contact with such a substance? A healthier alternative is arrowroot powder—that's what I used when Wyatt was a baby. I also used calendula cream on his bottom to prevent diaper rash. Weleda and Jurlique both make great calendula creams."

"The fat contained in animal proteins is also an important nutrient. There are many nutrients that are contained in meat that the human body cannot produce. People who eat only plant-based proteins and do not take nutritional supplements, mainly amino acids, to supply them with the nutrients they are missing by not eating meat will eventually develop debilitating and dangerous nutritional deficiencies. Meat is not the enemy! FIRST SURPRISE: Meat can be an important protein source. Eating meat is the right thing to do. It provides energy."
