It has long been known that processed red meat products – such as bacon, sausages, ham and pepperoni – are bad for human health. Their high saturated fat and salt content have been linked to cardiovascular disease, obesity and stroke.

But there is now considerable scientific evidence that such products also increase the risk of developing bowel cancer.

Cruelty to ducks on Amazon

April 5, 2014

Amazon.com is being urged to stop profiting from suffering and end its selling of cruel foie gras.

A campaign launched by Mercy for Animals is aiming to do in the US what VIVA managed to achieve in the UK – convince the online retailer to drop ‘torture in a tin’, the liver of birds that have been violently force-fed.

An investigator for the Los Angeles-based organisation documented a “culture of cruelty” at an Amazon.com foie gras supplier.

Captured video shows workers grabbing ducks by their wings and necks and shoving metal pipes down their throats, tossing ducks by their fragile wings into transport cages and birds with bleeding wounds left to suffer in tiny wire cages.

Also filmed were ducks being shackled upside down and having their throats cut.

“Force-feeding animals to produce foie gras is so cruel it has been banned in California and more than a dozen countries,” Mercy for Animals outlines on Amazoncruelty.com. “No socially responsible company should be supporting this type of blatant cruelty.”
