Rats help save humans.

4 The Love Of Animals

Rats help save humans. Long before CAT scans, X-rays, blood samples and colonoscopies, physicians used the good sense they were born with: their sense of smell. That’s because bacterias, cancers and infections create unique smells. Sweet, fruity breath could mean diabetes.

Trader Joe's Eggs NOT Humane

Here's what they say about Trader Joe's eggs (definitely does not sound humane to me.) I decided to look online for some information regarding the "Organic Free Range Eggs" that Trader Joe's, my favorite store, sells. Here is what their web site says. A Note About Eggs At Trader Joe's we listen to what our customers tell us about the choices we give them. Thanks to their valued feedback, in 2005 we made an important change in our egg selection.

Best Opinion Ever on Humans and Nature

Critter News

He wants to save the planet for humans alone. Tags: nature climate change human behavior environment uganda At least to me. Read it yourself as I can't do it justice. It's by a Ugandan political scientist. I'm sure it will make a lot of people angry. But it crystallizes the conclusions I've been heading towards for the last 40 years. By the way, if you ever read Jared Diamond's Collapse, you'll understand why I also think this is the perfect response to his book.

Why Humans Are the Only Ones with Rights

Critter News

Someone posted a question about why humans have human rights and whether they should considering that others do not. Please note the vast generalizations here, but, in the areas of religion, at least orthodox religion and there are varying levels of how fundamental you want to go, there is only one species with a soul and that is the human. In the matter of science, and there are varying levels of this viewpoint, the human is the most advanced of creatures.

Humane Society Endorses Obama

Critter News

The Obama-Biden ticket is the better choice on animal protection, and we urge all voters who care about the humane treatment of animals, no matter what their party affiliation, to vote for them. As an Illinois state senator, he backed at least a dozen animal protection laws, including those to strengthen the penalties for animal cruelty, to help animal shelters, to promote spaying and neutering, and to ban the slaughter of horses for human consumption.

Humans Not Natural Milk Drinkers

Critter News

I've heard this before, but it's fascinating every time it comes up. There is such a push in society to drink milk for calcium for strong bones. But really, it's not natural for us to be drinking milk past infancy. It's the perfect example of a market being created out of nothing. Of misinformation that is repeated so often it becomes fact. If you really think about it, how many prehistoric people were grabbing pregnant cows to suckle on? Lactose intolerant people are actually the normal ones.

On Nonhuman Animals and Human Babies

Salmon Threatened by Humans, Not Sea Lions

Critter News

Here's someone else who agrees with me that sea lions are not the true threat to salmon. She highlights dams, but that is only one of the four H's (hydro, harvest, habitat and hatcheries) that are obliterating this beautiful creature. I think this opinion is pretty wide-spread. It's just easier to kill sea lions that to break down dams.

A Look at Humane Farming

Animal Ethics

Although the farmers can easily answer that their animals are treated more humanely whilst alive, their discomfort about being asked questions regarding the slaughter process is visually and audibly obvious. This is as humane as "humane farming" gets. After watching the film, the viewer can decide whether giving these animals a few weeks of "a relatively happy life" is humane enough to justify taking these animals' lives for products that no one needs
