Here is a very interesting article about Raw Food for Pets that also applies to Humans.

Fast Growing and Far from Just a Fad - So Why Do These People Discredit It?

Story at-a-glance
• A veterinarian at Colorado State University’s James L. Voss Veterinary Teaching Hospital wrote an article recently taking a stand for the university against raw food for pets. This is discouraging, but not unexpected, since nutrition instruction in U.S. veterinary schools is often “delegated” to major pet food companies. As a result, most of the nutritional information veterinary students receive involves processed pet food.
• With growing interest among consumers for healthier food choices for pets, in response, processed pet food manufacturers seem to be taking one of three tactics: 1) develop a raw food product themselves, 2) buy one from another company, or 3) campaign to discredit the feeding of raw food. Unfortunately, a number of professionals in the traditional veterinary community are also working on behalf of the processed pet food industry to scare pet owners away from raw feeding.
• In her article, the Colorado State veterinarian uses a number of standard anti-raw tactics to scare off pet owners. These include referring to raw feeding as a new and passing fad; discrediting anecdotal evidence provided by vets and pet owners who have seen first hand the value of raw food; and advising pet owners to search for scientific research (which doesn’t yet exist) on the benefits of raw feeding.
• Additional typical anti-raw arguments also found in the CSU article include exaggerating the risks of feeding raw, and suggesting to pet owners that dogs have evolved over time and should now be fed grain-based diets.
• There are innate risks to feeding all types of commercially prepared pet foods. In 2013 the overwhelming majority of recalls were from bacterial contaminants in dry pet foods, something anti-raw proponents never discuss. Dr. Becker recommends that if you’re already feeding raw or are thinking about making the switch, it’s important to keep in mind that the campaign against raw pet food is primarily driven by those with a financial interest in the processed pet food industry. It’s important to do your own research, and consult with a holistic or integrative vet or veterinary nutritionist who is knowledgeable about raw diets for pets.

Indeed, the TRUTH has ENEMIES!!!

Shills exist. They are real. They walk among you, and they pay special attention to your popular gold-bordered WATS posters. You should be aware of this. What you choose to do with this awareness is up to you.
