The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.

—Charles Darwin, English naturalist (1809–1882)

Wild animals never kill for sport. Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow creatures is amusing in itself.

—James A. Froude, English historian (1818–1894)

If you visit the killing floor of a slaughterhouse, it will brand your soul for life.

—Howard Lyman, author of Mad Cowboy

A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral.

Rice that does not need to be cooked is cultivated

subota, 4. rujna 2010.

Indian scientists have managed to cultivate a special kind of rice for which is enough to be soaked in water.

In most parts of Asia, rice is the basis of nutrition to billion people, but problems often arise in the absence of conditions for food preparation. However, one species of this plant, soft Assamese Rice does not need to cook and is therefore suitable especially for the poorest strata of the population.

Researchers from the Institute for Research in rice Oris managed to grow a hybrid type of rice which is enough to soak overnight in water to become edible. What is more important, this will be able to grow rice farmers in all climatic zones of India, which should reduce the number of hungry Indians.

This is the first successful attempt of growing soft rice Asama outside the northeast, the region where a very high humidity and temperatures are still higher than in Asam.

India and beyond, despite the great economic progress in the last twenty years, there is still a third of underfed children in the world, so the researchers hope that this hybrid could become a major asset of government in the struggle against poverty and hunger.
