Yeah, that's right, his new diet and illnesses coincided. His runny nose, constant cough, difficulty breathing, chest tightness, muscle aches and face swelling all happened once his main meals consisted mostly of meat. Specifically "hamburger" and "cow meat".
Anyway - For nearly 2 years the doctors are stumped to find drugs to help rid Doug of his ailments... In fact, his symptom have only escalated.
But now I see this report: FSIS RESIDUE VIOLATION INFORMATION For Week Of Jan 14, 2010. This 110-page list includes almost 900 names of dairy businesses that have been cited for infractions. And the Cattlenetwork says "Not only does this list present a negative image for the cattle industry, it is a target for increased scrutiny from industry critics. We must eliminate antibiotic residues in food animals and make this list go away. This is an issue that must be taken seriously. The reputation of individual producers and the entire livestock industry is on the line."
I'm no chemist be here are some of these antibiotics and drugs found in these poor murdered calves and cows:
AMPICILLIN, FLUNIXIN, GENTAMICIN, TULATHROMYCIN, NEOMYCIN, PENICILLIN, OXYTETRACYCLINE, TILMICOSIN, DESFUROYLCEFTIOFUR, TETRACYCLINE, SULFAMETHAZINE...
I mean... How SICK are these "healthy" animals anyways?
"Industry critic" - (that would be me)... Will be sending a copy of this report to Doug. He might get some answers as to why none of the pharmaceuticals he's been prescribed are working... Sure, I know the industry will say that everything is "safe" because these "products" never reached the market... Hum - Just like the "recalled meat" that was fed to school kids.
I certainly can see why Doug's "two all beef patty" diet may have really compromised his health and immune system! Maybe this information is just what he needs to GO VEGAN!
