Do you love eating fried chicken or any other meat products. Maybe you are a meat lover. Well, think again after watching this video.
I cannot understand clearly the message of this video. (1) Is it convincing us not to eat Kentucky Fried Chicken, KFC. (2) Telling us not to eat any kind of meat ( go vegetarian ) or. (3) It promotes animal welfare, to slaughter the animal in most humane way.
In slaughter, the animal should feel the less possible pain. According to this study: the most humane way of slaughtering animals is by means of Slaughtering with a knife (The Islamic Method).
Here are the result of reading base on electroencephalograph (EEG) and an electrocardiogram (ECG).
1. The first 3 seconds from the time of the slaughter (in the Islamic Method) as recorded on the EEG did not show any change from the graph before slaughter, thus indicating that the animal did not feel any recognizable pain during or after the incision.
2. During the following 3 second, the EEG recorded a condition of deep sleep-unconsciousness. This is due to the large quantity of blood gushing out of the body. The sudden and profuse bleeding from the incision on the neck causes a shock resulting in a state of unconsciousness due to severe shortage of blood supply to the vital centers located in the brain.
3. After the above-mentioned 6 seconds, the EEG recorded zero level, showing no feeling of pain at all.
4. As the brain message (EEG) dropped to zero level, the heart was still pounding and the body convulsing vigorously (a reflex action of the spinal cord) driving out a maximum amount of blood from the body, thus resulting in hygienic meat for the consumers.
My question: Is there really a humane way to slaughter animals?
