The California Mad Cow Has Been Euthanized

Filed under: Sad SadFoodHealthSick

Mad Cow Euthanized

While we REALLY don't condone the killing of animals, this case is probably for the better.

The California dairy cow that was found to have Mad Cow Disease has been euthanized. The U.S. Department of Agriculture is saying that the animal was 10 years and seven months old.

Apparently it was, "humanely euthanized after it developed lameness and became recumbent."

There is still no risk to the food supply, luckily, and this is the first case reported since 2006.

RIP little buddy, we're so sorry you got sick!

DON'T PANIC: Mad Cow Disease Case Found In CA!

Filed under: FoodHealth

Mad Cow Case

Remember that huge Mad Cow Disease scare we all went through about six years ago?

Well, we hope it doesn't happen again now that there has been a new confirmed case of the disease in a dairy cow in central California!

If you look at the statistics, it really isn't anything to lose your mind over: this is only the 4th confirmed mad cow discovered in the U.S., and the first since 2006.

Not only that, but this cow did not enter the food system and everyone is safe! Officials believe it is a rare spontaneous case and not linked to contaminated food.

Apparently the safeguards in place really work!

So don't panic… not just yet at least!

Dairy Cows Suffer Extreme Pain From Dehorning

Filed under: PETAAnimal RightsAnimal CrueltyCowFarm

The next time you buy milk at the grocery store, you might feel differently after you learn about a cow's pain.

Dehorning is the very painful process of removing the cartiliginous tissue from cows' heads. The rationale behind this process is safety, but we think the cows would beg to differ.

Check out the video (above) from PETA to see some of the gruesome procedures done on dairy cows.

PETA has released another ad.

This time it tackles animal welfare and hopes to change your perception about a common food item…

Milk!

Apparently the milk that we drink has a literal 50-50 chance of coming from a cow with infected udders!!

Grossssss!

Maybe we'll take their advice and try some soy milk…

PETA Exposes Cruelty At Dairy Farm

Filed under: PETAAnimal CrueltyCow

Recently, PETA did an undercover investigation at a dairy factory farm.

The farm takes 180,000 pounds of milk from about 1,800 cows… every day!

PETA's undercover investigator found that workers would jab and hit cows with a big pole and the manager would even electro-prod cows in the face.

This is absolutely terrible.

Check out the above undercover video to see what the investigator found.

Fran Drescher's Fit Tips For A Healthier Lifestyle

Fran Drescher 1

Fran Drescher isn't just HIGHlarious on her TV shows The Nanny and Happily Divorced, she's also pretty smart in person! So smart that she's become a new FitPerez health correspondent!

We're so excited to welcome Fran aboard and U should be too because she'll be sharing her passion for living a healthy lifestyle every week by answering YOUR questions!

This week, Perezcious reader Chrissy from Michigan needed some help shopping for healthy food and asked:

Hi Fran!

What should I be eating to be healthy? When I go shopping, I get so confused as to what to get! Please help!

According to Fran:

Chrissy, three words: organic, organic, organic! (Okay, maybe it’s just one, but you get the point!) We have to recognize that what we put IN our bodies is just as, if not as important as what we put on them!

I say try to cut back on animal protein and dairy products. Also, it’s probably no shock that processed and chemical soaked foods are not good for our systems. So go organic, go whole grains, and go natural! And now, go grocery shopping for your organic goodies. Your body will thank you!

For more answers to any health questions on your mind, tweet @frandrescher #askfranforfitperez and help fight cancer by checking out her website www.cancerschmancer.org!
