Fake Meat That Tastes Like Chicken.

In Animals, Food/Drink, India on June 8, 2010 at 7:02 am

Full Post At Time: This spring, scientists at the University of Missouri announced that after more than a decade of research, they had created the first soy product that not only can be flavored to taste like chicken but also breaks apart in your mouth the way chicken does: not too soft, not too hard, but with that ineffable chew of real flesh.

Positive news for the environment and hopefully a reduction in the carnage that is the factory farming of animals and birds killed for meat, milk and eggs.

Of the 10 billion land animals killed annually in the United States, 95 percent are birds, and the overwhelming majority are “broiler” chickens raised for meat, 1 million killed each hour. Additionally, nearly 300 million laying hens(6) are raised for eggs, and more than 250 million turkeys(7) are slaughtered for meat. (Humane society of the United States)

Tranquil Moment For The Day.

Whenever we have a stressful day, or as it seems today, a stressful start to the week, with bad weather, transportation, work politics, etc, we find ourselves drawn back to the tranquillity of the “Ashes and Snow” exhibition from a few years back.  The soundtrack and insanely beautiful photography seem to put everything back into perspective!

Endangered Species Condoms – Giving Other Species A Chance To Survive.

In Animals, India on April 28, 2010 at 7:34 am

A clever way to start a conversation about how human overpopulation is driving extinction of endangered species.

The Center for Biological Diversity has distributed 250,000 free Endangered Species Condoms at Earth Day events in all 50 states — as well as Canada, Puerto Rico, and Mexico — to highlight how unsustainable human population growth is driving species extinct at a cataclysmic rate.
