Think Twice before Eating Foie Gras

Foie Gras is a well-known delicacy in French cuisine. It has a rich, buttery, and delicate taste, unlike that of ordinary duck or goose liver.

The delicacy is made by force-feeding corn to a goose or duck with a feeding tube to fatten the liver though other countries produce the ingredient by naturally feeding the duck or goose.

The ducks are force-fed twice a day for 13 consecutive days while the geese are force-fed three times a day for around 17 days before they are slaughtered after 100 days for ducks and 112 days for geese.

This dish that is crafted out of mainly, inhuman methods of preparation, is often served as a side dish for foods like steaks and meatloaves.

The dish is even protected by the cultural and gastronomical heritage of France.

鵝肝是法國最上等的名菜。一份肥美的鵝肝料理,在高級餐館至少要好幾十美元才吃得到。正因為此物有價值,卻因此害苦了鵝。。。看看這視頻,讓你知道肥美的鵝肝是怎樣催生的。。。好恐怖!好可憐!。。。「為了製作肥鵝肝,工人們一天內數次用金屬管把重達兩公斤的穀物、玉米和脂肪硬打入鴨和鵝的胃里。結果是,動物們的肝臟腫脹到比正常大小大十倍以上,他們因此生病而經常動彈不得。餵食管經常刺穿動物的喉嚨,牠們之中的許多因此流血致死。看看被強迫餵食的鳥類屍體,可以發現嚴重的內出血、霉菌及細菌感染,和肝性腦病——這是一種由肝衰竭所引起的腦部疾病。在野外生活的鴨子平時喜歡搜尋糧草、游泳,並養育後代,但在肥鵝肝養殖場上,他們被剝奪了對他們來說自然及重要的一切。」

The dish is only served in mainly fine dining establishments and can cost up to hundreds of dollars a serving. Because of their high market price and rich flavor, Foie Gras is a popular dish and is high on demand on the market among consumers, making geese and ducks, victims of this cruel trade.

Watch the video to see the inhuman process that goes on behind the scenes to produce the popular ingredient. It is nothing less of horrible, inhumane, and sad.

Force-feeding the ducks and geese the corn can cause deaths as the process hurts their throats and they often die from excessive loss of blood.

Imagine being force-fed food even after you’re full. You’ll most likely get serious internal bleeding, bacterial infections and hepatic encephalopathy (A brain condition that causes liver failure). Then, the next day, you repeat the same process again, only to be slaughtered 100 days later.

You are getting fattened up to get eaten by others. Things like this should only be left as ideas for stories, myths and movie ideas. It’s like the story of Hansel & Gretel who were fattened up by the witch in the ginger bread house before they were cooked in a pot for her dinner.

Stop the cruelty. This is nothing like us humans. We are capable of immense love and compassion. How those involved in this cruel trade managed to abandon their humanity for the sake of profit is beyond me.

Stop the cruelty today.
