Beautiful chimps

This new movie from Disney called Chimpanzee shows how chimpanzees are cute in nature.
This is true of course, but unfortunatly thousands of chimps are imprisoned for life in laboratory, tortured, victims of useless and painful experiments. Unlike other lab animals, chimps are often used in many experiments instead of being killed in a single experiment... so some chimps live all their life in cages, being injected viruses, or used for testing alcohol, toxic products or drugs. Between living a long life like this or being killed quickly after just one experiment, maybe the second choice is better, eventhough both are horrible.

Chimpanzees used in biomedical research tend to be used repeatedly over decades, rather than used and killed as with most laboratory animals. Some individual chimps currently in U.S. laboratories have been used in experiments for over 40 years.[56] According to Project R&R, a campaign to release chimps held in U.S. labs—run by the New England Anti-Vivisection Society in conjunction with Jane Goodall and other primate researchers—the oldest known chimp in a U.S. lab is Wenka, who was born in a laboratory in Florida on May 21, 1954.[57] She was removed from her mother on the day of birth to be used in a vision experiment that lasted 17 months, then sold as a pet to a family in North Carolina. She was returned to the Yerkes National Primate Research Center in 1957 when she became too big to handle. Since then, she has given birth six times, and has been used in research into alcohol use, oral contraceptives, ageing, and cognitive studies.[58]

With the publication of the chimpanzee genome, there are reportedly plans to increase the use of chimps in labs, with some scientists arguing that the federal moratorium on breeding chimps for research should be lifted.[55][59] A five-year moratorium was imposed by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 1996, because too many chimps had been bred for HIV research, and it has been extended annually since 2001.[55]

Other researchers argue that chimps are unique animals and either should not be used in research, or should be treated differently. Pascal Gagneux, an evolutionary biologist and primate expert at the University of California, San Diego, argues that, given chimpanzees' sense of self, tool use, and genetic similarity to human beings, studies using chimps should follow the ethical guidelines that are used for human subjects unable to give consent.[55] Also, a recent study suggests that chimpanzees which are retired from labs exhibit a form of posttraumatic stress disorder.[60] Stuart Zola, director of the Yerkes National Primate Research Laboratory, disagrees. He told National Geographic: "I don't think we should make a distinction between our obligation to treat humanely any species, whether it's a rat or a monkey or a chimpanzee. No matter how much we may wish it, chimps are not human."[55]

oh chimps are not humans ? really ?? and that suffice to give the right to use them, torture them or kill them ? chimps are not humans - so what !? this guy thinks that only humans should not suffer, and everything else is shit.

Some Essential Products

  • Miso: at first it looks expensive and just tastes salty with no pros... But, it is only around 5-6$ for 250gr (22,50$/kg) and this little 250gr can last you for a while, because miso tastes VERY salty, so you rarely need to use a lot. Got all amino acids, besides, its got many health benefits. and prevents infection, diseases, etc. You can put it in anything: stews, soups, etc.
  • Other fermented soy products like Tempeh: much better for health than tofu! more expensive, though.
  • Bragg's Liquid Amino Acid soy sauce: made of soy amino acids, 0 calories, low sodium: much better than regular soy sauce or Tamari sauce! More complex taste also, doesn't taste just salty.
  • Hemp seeds: another complete protein. High in protein, not a common allergen, excellent in salads, cereals, soups... everything!

réponse à un commentaire sur un article sur le site de radio-canada

J'ai écris ce commentaire mais il fut rejeté par le modérateur car jugé "injurieux".
Je le publie donc ici!


"En outre, il faut arrêter de mettre de la morale ou il n'y en a pas. A lire votre pseudo, je pense comprendre que vous êtes du genre à considérer la mort d'un animal comme un sacrilège. C'est bien. Alors vous êtes choqué quand un lion tue une gazelle?
L'homme mange de la viande, pas parce que c'est bien ou mal, mais parce que c'est comme ça, c'est la nature. On tue donc des animaux pour ça. Je ne vois pas en quoi utiliser un animal en recherche est différent."


Dans votre tête, le monde est sans loi ni morale. Un animal peut en tuer un autre, donc un homme peut tuer un animal, ou est le mal, puisque vous dites que le mal n'existe pas...
Je vais vous expliquer quelque chose: en effet les animaux carnivores n'ont aucune notion de ce qui est bien et mal, ils ne font pas la différence, et ils tuent en n'éprouvant aucun remord ni culpabilité. Aucune sympathie ni compassion pour autrui. Ils ne sont pas humain. Et vous voulez vous comporter comme ces charognards, comme un psychopathe, et revenir à l'état sauvage, ou le meurtre serait impuni. Un chat qui prend plaisir à faire souffrir une souris, ce chat est incapable de se mettre à la place de l'autre. Cette faculté est réservée aux humains. Mais je vous dirais que, même si le Bien et Mal n'existe pas concrètement en dehors du sens que l'esprit humain lui donne, le Bien et Mal existe tout de même dans la Nature, tout comme le Jour et la Nuit, il faut un équilibre de prédateurs et proies, etc (en passant l'humain dépasse largement une fonction de prédateur, et cause un déséquilibre). La preuve que la notion de Mal existe: lorsque ce même chat qui torture une souris, pour reprendre l'exemple de tout à l'heure, si on prend ce chat à la gorge, qu'on le brasse, qu'on le lance au mur, qu'on lui crie dessus, il aura peur, il aura Mal, il sera terrorisé. Il ressent alors ce que c'est que d'être la victime, mais il ne fait pas le lien lorsqu'il cause cette même souffrance aux autres. Si on caresse ce chat il ronronne, il se sent Bien, en harmonie, paisible, ce sera un état différent, il est bien certain que le bien et mal existe d'une facon ou d'une autre, ou sinon rien n'existe ou tout est la même chose.
J'éprouve de la compassion pour la gazelle parce que je m'identifie à elle, je suis capable de me mettre à sa place, mais vous vous identifiez au lion, et vous justifiez ainsi qu'on a le droit nous aussi de causer de la souffrance.

(seulement cette dernière partie fut publiée)
Bref, est-ce que le meurtre du lion par la gazelle est bien ou mal? Pour le lion il n'y a rien de mal, pour la gazelle peut-etre que oui - ou du moins il y a peur et souffrance , qui fait plus partie du mal que du bien, on s'entend -, pour l'humain, il y a mal. Un humain digne de ce nom ressent de la compassion en regardant un animal souffrir, et il sait aussi que tuer est mal.
Concernant la recherche sur les animaux, la recherche sur les animaux est cruelle, inutile et inefficace. Il y a souffrance, malgré ce que vous dites concernant les règles à respecter, qui ne sont bien sûr pas toujours respectée. Il faut toujours tester ensuite sur les humains, car ce qui est vrai sur une souris n'est pas transposable à un humain, qui est une autre espèce, avec une physiologie bien différente. Il existe des moyens plus efficace, comme l'expérimentation sur humains, in vitro , cellules souches et simulation informatique.
Et toute la recherche est vaine, car malgré toutes les avancées en matière de nouvelles technologies en science moderne, il y a aujourd'hui encore plus de maladies, malades et de morts qu'avant. Les taux des cancers ne cessent de grimper, de même que l'obésité et toutes les maladies qui y sont reliées, comme le diabète.

Good deals in Montreal for Food

Raw nuts can be pretty expensive but at Tau on St-Denis corner Rachel you can buy raw cashews for 10,29$ per kilo. They're broken in half or smaller pieces so they're not whole cashews but it tastes the same anyway.
Fresh dates are expensive at most places. I remember just 1 or 2 years ago I could find 550 grams boxes for 2,50$ but now they're around 5,50$ everywhere. Some places its 4,50$, which is not to bad... But the other day I found out at La Vieille Europe on the Main (3855 St-Laurent) it is 4$ for 550 grams and they are mellow, tender, sweet frash dates.
Not far away from there, some more raw nuts: raw peanuts 90 cents per 100 grams, at Frenco (3895 St-Laurent)é
Also, Ruth's Chia Goodness, usually over 7$ everywhere is 5$ at Tutti Frutti, on Maisonneuve east, close to metro Beaudry.

"Do your best, don't worry, be happy" - Meher Baba

Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go - Oscar Wilde

Breathe. Meditate. Live.

We are all prisonners in prison or in our mind.
Hostage of our emotions, fear and anger.
If you cannot solve the problem, then you are part of the problem yourself.
We are all human beings, therefore we deserve to be treated as human beings.
(documentary "Doing Time, Doing Vipassana")

Things are gonna slide in all directions
Won't be nothing you can measure anymore
The blizzard of the world has crossed the threshold and its overturned the order of the soul
When they said Repent
I wonder what they meant
I've seen the future
It is murder
-Leonard Cohen, The Future

I am not Scientific

I am far from being infallible. I will learn more as I go along. But as between my world and that of the "science of medicine" and the " science of dietetics" I'll await the verdict of time with calmness and without fear, I am not "scientific" and in the present state of " science" I would be a fool if I were. I'd rather be right than to be " scientific".
