Fear mongering comes in shrimp size bites too
Why You May Never Want to Eat Shrimp Again
When it is inspected, some of the top reasons it's rejected are "filth," salmonella, and residues of banned veterinary drugs. (Hungry yet?)
Overseas, shrimp is often farmed in ponds that are treated with a long list of chemicals: urea, superphosphate, diesel, piscicides (fish-killing chemicals like chlorine and rotenone), pesticides, antibiotics (including some that are banned in the U.S.), sodium tripolyphosphate (a suspected neurotoxin), borax, and occasionally caustic soda.

The truth in animal protein production slowly but surely leaking out
Industrial Meat Bad, Small Farm Good? It's Not So Simple
And when it's harder to feed animals, they also produce more emissions. For example, cattle scrounging for food in arid East Africa might release the equivalent of 1,000 pounds of carbon for every pound of protein they produce. Compare that with many parts of the U.S. and Europe, where a cow might generate about 10 pounds of carbon per pound of protein.
The paper also reminds us that India is the world's biggest producer of milk and China, the largest producer of pork. Asia accounts for 55 percent of global pork production, dwarfing Europe (26 percent) and the U.S. (17 percent).

Chirikof Island Government Killers
By Trent Loos
I have received many inquiries in the past three weeks about the "wild cows" on Chirikof Island. I have been somewhat silent, waiting for developments to happen without causing any problems. Today I can report the last developments.I was on Chirikof Island from Oct 19- Oct 26. When we left, the boat was to be at the beach within twenty-four hours loading the 80 head that were in a 100 acre pen caring them back to the mainland. It is a thirty boat ride from Kodiak Island...200 hundred miles out to Chirikof Island. The boat arrived about two days later than expected. Now the rush is the winter weather. Evidently, the Pacific Ocean is not an ideal road if you know what I mean.

Cattle herds on remote Alaska islands face threat
Federal wildlife managers have asked this month for public comment as they seek to remove nearly 1,000 animals from the uninhabited, isolated islands in southwest Alaska.
"The purpose is to stop the grazing on these two islands," said biologist Steve Ebbert with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge. "We know we have a problem."
