Percutaneous pulmonary valve replacement: a new development in the lifetime strategy for patients with congenital heart disease

Grace Bayston's insight:

According to this article it would be very useful to use swine heart valves to help treat human heart diseases.  I think it would be a great idea.

Grace Bayston's insight:

It is interesting and suprising how much the vaccination market is growing. Everyone always focuses on the meat produced, however this article shows the amount of vaccinations that have to go into each animal to insure their meat is safe. In the next couple of years not only will meat production be increasing, but vaccinations will be as well.

Blizzard kills thousands of cows, while shutdown leaves ranchers on ice.

Blizzard kills thousands of cows, while shutdown leaves ranchers on ice. | ALS Animals | Scoop.it
Western South Dakota lost an estimated 10 percent of its cattle over the weekend, and ranchers are unable to get aid.
Grace Bayston's insight:

The pictures taken for this article are trying to catch people's attention by showing how tortured some of these animals living environments are.  But to be honest, captivity is practically all these animals know.  They were most likely born or rased in a "cage" and would not have high of chances surviving in the wild.  Yes, the pictures make the animals look miserable, but they don't know anything else.

McLean County wrong to gas animals
Bloomington Pantagraph
In 2010, animal welfare groups applauded the National Animal Control Association's condemnation of gassing companion animals to death.
Grace Bayston's insight:

I agree that animals should not be gases to death, however there has to be a specific reason these counties refuse to sumit to the state law which prohibits the gassing of these companion animals.  The article is bias toward the protection of the animals therefore you cannot form a true opinion on the topic. Aren't there other processes for killling animals other than gassing them?
