    Voices Carry for Animals # 39

    in Current Events

    Hosted by Debbie Dahmer


    Guest: Matt Dominiguez-  Public Policy Manager for the Humane Society of the United States Farm Animal Protection Campaign..


    GAG ORDER   With "ag gag" bills, Big Ag seeks to stifle reform


    Inside windowless barns, sows chewed the bars of their gestation crates, confined so tightly that they couldn’t even turn around. Brown puddles had formed from a diarrhea outbreak. And piles of dead piglets were being gutted—so that their intestines could be fed to their mothers.


    These images would have remained hidden there in Owensboro, Kentucky, if HSUS undercover investigators hadn’t videotaped the dark reality. It was hard to watch, but critical: The feeding of pigs to pigs violated state law. Other practices seemed to violate human decency.


    “At the end of the day,” an investigator reported, a sow “started making the worst sound I have heard since I started working [here]. I ran to her and she had gotten her nose in between the leverage bar that opens and closes the feed trough and a bar on her cage. … [She] scraped her nose about an inch long [leaving] her mouth bleeding.”


    If proposed “ag gag” laws are passed, moments like these will stay concealed from the American public. Introduced in state legislatures around the country the last few years at the behest of the meat, dairy and egg industry, the bills seek to criminalize whistleblowing by making it illegal to take video or photos on factory farms or to seek employment for the purpose of exposing abuse and food safety problems. They also sometimes require mandatory reporting with impossibly short timelines so that whistleblowers must “out” themselves and no pattern of abuse can be documented.

    The G-Spot with Meka Rae: Dying to Be Beautiful

    in Women

    Hi Bedroom Playmates

    Come play with us in the bedroom as we discuss the need for a big butt, big tits etc. What's the price of beauty? Why is it necessary? Why don't women feel they are enough with booty, tits, and face that were given to them during birth? What drives a woman to "hate" or dislike themselves so much that they must spend thousands or millions to look "beautiful?" Is beauty really in the eye of the beholder or is it in the hands of the plastic surgeon or the so called "butt injector?" 

    Lets talk booty pills, black market butt injections, and the need for bigger breast. What's driving our society to value beauty over brains? Is this all worth it? Women are literally dying to have bigger asses...

    Do you want a bigger booty? If so why? What's driving you and/or what's stopping you if you haven't received it. 

    We have a lot to talk about! 

    Let’s talk!

    Tami Ross shares lessons on Diabetes

    in Lifestyle

       Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, with 1.7 million new cases diagnosed each year


    -86 million Americans age 20 and older had pre-diabetes in 2012, up from 79 million in 2010


    -Approximately six million Americans use insulin to manage their diabetes*


     


     


    Nearly 30 million Americans have diabetes, and about six million people use life-saving insulin to manage their diabetes. The disease is complex and often overwhelming, creating barriers that may prevent people with diabetes from enjoying the same opportunities as everyone else.


     


    Certified Diabetes Educator and Registered Dietician, Tami Ross joins us today to talk about things people with diabetes can do to simplify their lives. Welcome!


     




    What are some of the challenges people with diabetes face on a daily basis?



    What tips do you have for people to best control their diabetes?



    Can you tell us about the “Dynamic Duos” education campaign and the role diabetes educators play in working with patients?



    Are there new technologies that reduce the steps to insulin injection and conceal the needle?



    How much of a game changer is this new needle where you don’t have to actually see the needle itself? How big of a deal is that for diabetes patients?



    Where can we go for more information?


    Diabetes requires continual blood sugar monitoring, meal planning, exercise and stress management. Medication may be needed for the rest of their lives, including insulin, which often requires multiple injections per day.

    Acids in the body - Dr. Phyllis Canion

    in Health

    Wondering how sugar affects human pH? Wondering why you should care? Dr. Canion talks to Shirley about how this works and why it’s important. In dentistry we know the teeth can withstand a critical pH of 5.5 before the teeth start to show effects. The body has a similar pH critical level. A healthy body is not acidic. Acidosis is one of the diagnostic tools that “alternative” medicine doctors use to make a diagnosis of disease and start treatments right away.
