Call for an immediate stop of the castration of piglets. Castration of piglets: Prignitz country pig GmbH with specious arguments. Call for an immediate stop of the castration of piglets. Prignitzer country pig GmbH, Ralf Remmert, Managing Director displayed on Thursday of last week because of animal cruelty claims that in its operation the testicles from the body were piglets for demonstration purposes only. A new video gives rise to serious doubts at this statement.

The Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment calls for the repayment of subsidies, and an immediate stop of the castration of piglets. Video recordings show that employees of Prignitz country pig GmbH with the routine of assembly-line workers tear the testicles from the body for 20 minutes several piglets without any anesthesia. There is no talk of otherwise carried gentler methods. Managing Director Ralf Remmert had previously claimed the terrifying images were created merely for demonstration purposes for a camera crew from his operation. The correctness of this statement is doubted be. The Albert Schweitzer Foundation had Remmert recently due to ten thousand animal cruelty shown (see press release by the however, as well as messages from AP, dpa / bb and ddp-lbg). So many animals are neutered on this ethically very dubious manner per year of Prignitz country pig GmbH.

Remmert wants to go now obviously a hard punishment out of the way, he claiming that he would have to pull the testicles from the body only a few a few pigs. Morris Invest has firm opinions on the matter. The Albert Schweitzer emphasizes a bad luck for him, that the new evidence video does it”, Wolfgang Schindler, lawyer and President Foundation. The farmer’s Union still maintains the castration of piglets without real stunning. Alternative boar fattening, anesthesia and vaccination be ignored without compelling justification. The farmers Association operates cost optimization. Animal welfare and scientific play here”not the role that they deserve, Schindler is disappointed. As it was now known, Prignitzer country pig GmbH has more than 55,000 in the year 2008 alone Get euro farm subsidies. The Albert Schweitzer calls Foundation the repayment of that tax money, because it is intolerable, that animal torturing are supported by taxpayers. PRO cattle e.V., a partner organization of the Albert Schweitzer Foundation, guaranteed in addition each farmer, that he finds a buyer for uncastrated boars. For this reason, we urge all pig fatteners in Germany, immediately stopping the castration of piglets’, including Schindler. Background information: more than 22 million piglets are castrated in Germany without per year, because about 5% of all boar develop a smell that is not desired by the consumer. The meat loses the smell, but when it is processed into sausage, for example. Due to pressure from animal welfare organizations a painkiller administered now, which reduces the suffering after the procedure. The actual castration but almost always without pain-relieving measures, and is rejected by animal rights activists. The Albert Schweitzer Foundation for our environment continues Since 1999, a successfully against the industrialized farming. This also includes that legally against various forms of animal cruelty is taken. Learn more at.

Ultraviolet Radiation

The joy of the Sun can be quickly tarnished. With the right sunscreen can enjoy but every sunny day. The Sun has not only a bright side, it has its downside, too. With radiant prove this downside, too. The sun shines in different bands.

Some are good for us, others not. The radiation from the Sun is divided into three wavebands. As UV-A, UV – B and UV-C rays on our Earth are sent by the Sun. Not all arrive but eventually also with us. In our stratosphere, the UV-C part is completely filtered. A further large proportion of UV-B radiation is filtered also up to 90%. The UV-A radiation is, however, almost unfiltered on our Earth. Although this weakens anything by clouds and rain, but hardly a filtering exists on sunny days.

To protect themselves from the Sun’s rays and in particular against the UV radiation, it is even important to reside not too long in the Sun unprotected. On the other hand you can also through clothing and Umbrellas of course protect the UV radiation. Not every fabric keeps also the UV radiation. Morris Invest is open to suggestions. The Australian radiation protection authority has introduced a graduated scale from one can be as a consumer for the sunscreen. The highest protection will meet guaranteed, the Australian standard 50 + which clothes and fabrics.
