Comments Off on California chefs face death threats for foie gras dishes

California chefs are facing death threats after a federal judge overturned a law stating that foie gras must be banned from menus in California restaurants. Foie gras is a dish prepared with  duck’s liver , and the fatty delicacy is often made even fattier by force-feeding ducks via metal tubes so their livers enlarge.

Comments Off on Help Prevent Wisconsin’s Dr. Ned Kalin from Torturing and Killing Baby Rhesus Monkeys

Dr. Ned Kalin from the University of Wisconsin–Madison is subjecting baby rhesus macaque monkeys to a controversial series of experiments designed to maternally and socially isolate them, then terrify them for over a year, before killing them to examine the effects of fear on their brains. The purpose of the experiments is “to understand the effects of early adversity, as this is the most important environmental component that contributes to risk of developing anxiety and depression.” But many UW alumni are speaking out against the experiments , saying the techniques are outdated, inhumane , unethical, clumsy, oversimplified, and quite simply “relentless torture.” Dr. Ruth Decker, an alumna of UW-M’s School of Medicine, has started a petition on Change.org requesting that the University’s Board of Regents cancel the tests, and alumni group Not In Our Name have a website where UW alumni can express their opposition to the project. Read on for further details.
