How to Make Foie Gras (Fatty Liver) ?

I heard from Jessica Soho about this expensive delicacy call foie gras. I have not eaten or seen anything yet in actual. Bistro Filipino restaurant is serving foie gras salad for 588 pesos. The delicacy has awesome taste according to customers.

Foie gras,fatty liver, is made by forcing mixture of grain and other fats into male duck by means of a tube that goes through their stomach. They are force feed three times a days to make their liver ten times bigger than normal size. They are individually placed in a narrow cage to prevent movements. Ducks eventually die through the method.

This video shows how foie gras is made. (Please report if broken!). It also emphasize that foie gras is related to Amyloidosis-related disorders like type 2 diabetes and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD).

According to PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), Foie gras is so inhumane that in 2004 California passed a law banning the sale and production of foie gras effective in 2012. Force-feeding has also been outlawed in the U.K., Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic, Finland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, Denmark, and Israel.
