Foie gras is made from Geese and Ducksí diseased livers. Researchers with the University of Tennessee Graduate School of Medicine recently discovered a link between foie gras and amyloid-related diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimerís disease, type-2 diabetes, and tuberculosis. If you eat diseased food then you can expect to develop a disease yourself.
Foie gras farmers ram metal pipes down the birdsí throats two or three times a day and pump (force-feed) as much as 4 pounds of grain and fat into the animalsí stomachs. The pipes inevitably puncture the birdsí throats, sometimes causing them to bleed to death. Their livers expand to around 12 times their normal size - a disease known as ďhepatic steatosis.Ē The birds have difficulty standing, and they become so stressed that they tear out their own feathers. Many suffer from internal haemorrhaging, large sores and bleeding from their rear ends which is further exacerbated by rats near their open wounds, fungal and bacterial infections, and hepatic encephalopathy, a brain ailment caused when their livers fail.
The mortality rate of birds raised for foie gras has been found to be as much as 20 times higher than that of birds raised normally, and murdered Ducks and Geese show wing fractures and severe tissue damage to the throat muscles.
Please visit the links below to find out how Ducks and Geese are violently murdered, abused and squeezed into filthy, tiny cages, not large enough for them to fully stand or stretch their wings. These conditions are horrific, and yet this is how the poor birds are treated in the U.S., China and countless other countries.
