Do you eat meat, Rox?

I've probably asked you this before I know, but I can't remember the answer tbh.

I do but can take it or leave it and I do know where are coming from but the cruelty with which the animals in the Yulin festival are dispatched is not something that can be compared to the slaughter methods used here, I'm not going to put up any more pics of it but it is hellish, here's no other word to describe it, also, their fascination with ivory has placed Africa's wild elephants at risk and their demand for rhino horns is doing similar harm to Africa's Rhino population, likewise their demand for tigers which is in turn putting those animals at risk. The medicinal claims relating to these animals are largely bogus of course.

Endangered tiger parts such as bones, eyes, whiskers and teeth are used to treat ailments and disease ranging from insomnia and malaria, to meningitis and bad skin. Chinese texts state that the active ingredients in tiger bone; calcium and protein, which help promote healing, have anti-inflammatory properties.

Western medical experts tend to discount all claims of any curative power in tiger bone, as they do the rhinoceros horn, another popular Chinese medicine. And, it is well known that aspirin contains similar properties and produces the many of the same results as tiger prescriptions in patients.

Despite this, in Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, South Korea, Vietnam and in Chinatowns across Europe and North America, Chinese medicine stores do a steady trade in tiger wines, powder, tiger balms and tiger pills. Many Asian communities believe that tiger bone, in powdered form or prepared as, “tiger wine,” soothes rheumatic pain and cures ulcers, malaria and burns.

These derivatives make international trade and consumption possible in the wake of the, Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) treaty because they are not easily recognizable as tiger parts.

In recent years there has also been a resurgence of interest in traditional values and cures derived from nature in Chinese culture. Thus, the use of endangered tiger parts for medicinal properties is seen as a status symbol, a way to retain customs amid rapid change and as an alternative to the shortcomings of western medicine.

The Chinese culture believes that nearly all parts of the tiger can be used to derive some medicinal cure for any number of ailments. Here are some examples of how tiger parts and their derivatives are used in traditional Chinese medicine and causing the tiger to be a critically endangered species:

Tiger claws: used as a sedative for insomnia

Teeth: used to treat fever

Fat: used to treat leprosy and rheumatism

Nose leather: used to treat superficial wounds such as bites

Tiger bone: used as an anti-inflammatory drug to treat rheumatism and arthritis, general weakness, headaches, stiffness or paralysis in lower back and legs and dysentery

Eyeballs: used to treat epilepsy and malaria

Most Chinese against that as well, it is not a race thing it is the political imposition of a ruling junta.

Ok,you have eclectic taste buds, fair play, but what do you think of the trade in endangered species which are used for "traditional" Chinese medicines?

Do you know that studies have shown that pigs entering a slaughter house have the intelligence to know they're going to be killed?
