Food of the Gods



Food of the Gods

                In many of the ancient legends from around the world the Gods are known for their human qualities. Some Gods of the ancient world would participate in all manner of human activities like lying, cheating, stealing, hunting, warfare, doing drugs, gay pedophile sex, and one night stands. Just like humans the gods often had to eat and drink to stay alive. In these tales the gods are known for having special foods that only they eat and drink. Usually these foods and drinks will bestow great power or eternal life on anyone that eats of this food. Their food is usually forbidden to mortal man for this very reason.
                In the legends of Ancient Sumer we see gods that perform all the basic functions of humans and are human like in appearance. Often these gods are drinking milk and the honey beer that the Sumerians were known to make. The Sumerians taught that the Kings of Sumer were “Nourished by Ninhursag’s milk”. Ninhursag (Lady of Heaven) also referred to as Mami (Mother) was the fertility goddess associated with the cow. The Gods and Kings of Sumer grew strong from Mami’s milk.
                In the Epic of Gilgamesh, Gilgamesh asks Utnapishtim how he can become a god and gain immortality. Since Utnapishtim was once a mortal but was turned into a god as a reward for making an ark and saving humanity from the flood. As a favor Utnapishtim tells Gilgamesh a secret of the Gods about a thorny plant that makes one immortal at the bottom of the Ocean. Gilgamesh ties stones to his feet jumps into the ocean and recovers the plant. While bragging about what he would do with the plant a serpent makes off with his treasure and becomes immortal.
In Egypt Thoth the god of Knowledge and Wisdom became immortal after drinking the “White Drops” of an Immortality Potion. The Gods of Egypt would drink the milk of the mother goddess Hathor the Cow. Hathor is depicted as a White Cow and was often seen carrying a cup of her own milk. Hathor was closely associated with Wadjet the Snake Goddess.
                                In the Hindu religion the story goes that the gods churned the Ocean of Milk (Milky Way) that surrounds the Earth for a thousand years with a serpent. The best part of this milk called Amrita was collected and ate by the Gods to give them immortal life. The Nectar of Immortality that the gods ate of was forbidden to humans, only the gods could eat it. Still to this day the Amrita of the Gods is associated with milk, yoghurt, butter, and honey. A popular Hindu Religious dish is Panchamrita a food associated with Amrita. It is made from milk, yoghurt, sugar, clarified butter, and honey. It is offered up to the statues of their gods on certain festival days. The Milk Cow is revered in India as a mother goddess, because of the nourishment that it provides.
                In Greek Mythology the gods eat of Nectar and Ambrosia to stay forever young. People have long associated the Greek Nectar with honey but there has been disagreement to the nature of Ambrosia. Some say it is a drink, others say it is bread. Some claim it is wine, others say blood. I believe the Ambrosia of the Greek Gods to be milk or cream. The word Ambrosia is cognate with the Sanskrit Amrita and both are the drink of the gods. In Hindu tradtion Amrita is associated with milk products so it is probably the same for the Greeks. In the Greek tradition only the gods were meant to partake of the Nectar and Ambrosia. The Half-God Heracles was given Nectar and Ambrosia upon entering Mount Olympus. Tantalus was a mortal who was allowed to drink it and become immortal but he tried to give some to his human friends and the gods punished him severely.
The Myths of Greece say that the gods and men who drank Nectar and Ambrosia did not have the same blood as humans. They had what they called Ichor flowing through their veins, as a result of consuming the Divine Food. The Ichor was extremely dangerous and toxic for humans. It was said that the Ichor that poured from the god’s veins was a different color than mere mortal blood. Perhaps this is all an allusion to the “Blue Blood” of the White Gods and the complications of that come with Rhesus Negative Blood..
In the Jewish tradition we do not see Nectar and Ambrosia but they do speak of a land overflowing with milk and honey in the Book of Exodus. However, we do see trees in the Garden of Eden with fruits forbidden to man that only the Elohim can eat. The man Adam and his Wife Eve are tempted by a serpent to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. After learning what Adam did God said;
The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the Tree of Life and eat, and live forever.”
As a result of the infidelity of Adam and Eve he kicked them out of the Garden of Eden. This was to prevent them from eating of the Tree of Life, becoming gods, and gaining immortality. The god of the Bible likes meat, drinks, and bread to be sacrificed to him and it is said he actually enters the temple to consume them,
In Chinese Mythology we have human like beings called the Immortals that live forever as a result of eating the Peaches of Immortality from a special tree. The Immortals are said to be pale white skinned effeminate people that live in the mountains on islands and do not eat the food of humans. Their food is the Air and Dew when not consuming the Peaches of Immortality. They were also said to be very tall in stature and sometimes called Giants. Their name Xian in Chinese means super-human, pure-ones, or mountain men. They were often symbolized as dragons, White Stags, and Pine Trees. In the Book of Master Zhuang written in the 300’s B.C. the Xian are described in this way;
He said that there is a Holy Man living on faraway Ku-She Mountain, with skin like ice or snow, and gentle and shy like a young girl. He doesn’t eat the five grains, but sucks the wind, drinks the dew, climbs up on the clouds and mist, rides a flying dragon…
Obviously the Immortals are like the humans but they are more advanced and eat different foods than the regular humans do. If they did not eat the Peaches of Immortality gave to them by the Xi Wang Mu (Queen Mother of the West) it is said that they would get old and die.
According to the Book of Master Lie there was a whole race of immortals that lived on islands with high mountains and ate the Peaches of Immortality. These Mountain Islands drifted away from China to the North where some sank beneath the waves similar to Atlantis and to the West where they still presumably exist.
                The Chinese also have tales about a drink called the Elixir of Life. This drink could bestow immortality on the individual who drinks it. This Elixir of Life was sought after by many Emperors of China. Many Emperors of China died attempting to make and drink the Elixir of Life. The Elixir has many names in China and one of them is Amrita, the drink of immortality made from the cream of the Milky Way in the Hindu religion.
The Elixir of Life is a common story throughout the rest of the Earth as well. In Iranian Mythology the Cup of Jamshid contains the sacred Elixir of Immortality. This cup could give the drinker eternal life and powers of divination. In Irish Mythology the Cauldron of Rebirth brings the dead back to life. In Britain we see the legendary King Arthur in a quest for the Holy Grail. This was the legendary cup that represented the blood of Jesus Christ used at the Last Supper from which the Christian tradition of Communion is said to come from. In the religion of the Muslims they believe in a fountain that brings eternal life in Paradise.
                After reading about all the different foods and drinks of the gods all the stories kind of look like one story that goes like this: The gods eat and drink different foods than the mortals. The Mortals were not worthy or able of partaking of the food of the gods. The food or drink confers immortality on the people who drink it, and something about a snake.
                In the earliest tales from Sumer, Egypt, India and Greece one of the two foods of the Gods is consistently seen as Dairy/Ambrosia. The reason milk is seen as the earliest food of the gods is because milk was the actual food of the humans this book calls the White Gods. Caucasians and mixed Caucasians carry a gene that allows Lactose Tolerance into adulthood. At the present moment upwards of 90% of Africans and Asians are Lactose Intolerant. In the distant past these numbers would have been even higher because of less interbreeding between Caucasian and Non-Caucasian peoples. The ancient Caucasian tribes were often seen as dissimilar to other humans because they were lifelong milk drinkers and meat eaters. The tales of mortals being forbidden from drinking and eating the food of the gods may have had its roots with Lactose Intolerant people. They literally could not drink the milk of the White Gods because it would make them sick. 
The Milk was often mixed with the drug called Soma. Soma is known in America as Ephedra and it is a controlled substance. This drug was known to the White Gods for thousands of years. It was their stimulant of choice and was often used in their religious rituals. The Bharatas of the Vedas literally worshipped Soma. They believed the Soma drink would make them live for a very long time. It just so happens that Caucasians generally do live longer than most men of the world. Whenever foreigners may have asked the White Gods why they lived so long they probably told them it was the milk. Milk does a body good.
                Nectar the other food of the gods has been widely known as honey. Honey Bees gather the nectar from flowers and the animal domesticating White Gods would harvest the honey. They used the honey in many ways. They made honey sweetened cakes and tasty drinks. The most important of all the things they made with honey was their alcohol. They would ferment the honey with water and sometimes malt to make Mead. Mead or Honey Wine is considered the grandfather of all beer. It was known in Sumer, Egypt, India, Greece, China, and all the classical civilizations. In its most ancient Proto-Indo-European form it is called Medu. The word meant both Honey and Mead in this ancient language. The word Mead also means Honey in many other languages. This early beer was referred to as liquid gold. Beer is the Nectar of the gods.
                In later myths of other people such as the Hebrews, Persians, Irish, British and Chinese we see fruits, magic vessels, and elixirs that feed the gods and make them immortal. The two foods of the gods became mixed into one alcoholic drink over time. The drink is usually wine from a sacred cup in the rituals of today. Over time things have a way of becoming simpler. This could also be due to lactose intolerant people like the Chinese not identifying with milk drinking because of Lactose Intolerance. Over many years the various cultures made the original teachings of the White Gods their own, with some very distinct elements. Yet, they all draw from one original source, the White Gods. These people had several drinks they ritually partook of from Milk to Alcohol to Blood. Modern religious traditions derived from these ancient divine drinks are usually comprised of one or more of these beverages. In ancient times these drinks of blood, milk, and alcohol were usually involved in religious rituals that were meant to bestow eternal life. Often before spending a life together the Bharatas of India would drink a cup of Milk or Ghee (Clarified Butter) together as couples. This would seal the deal and the marriage would be final. It was said the ancient Scythians made cups from the skulls of their enemies and drank wine and blood from them. It is said that certain fraternities of their descendants still practice this custom today. Right now more than a billion people in the world drink communion wine symbolic of blood in remembrance of their savior Jesus Christ who bestows eternal life on his true believers.
                Apparently all the fables of Nectar, Ambrosia, and all the various Elixirs of Life that Kings have died for are all really just hand me down tales about the beer drinking and cow milking White Gods. These are humble origins for such a grand tradition. There is a kernel of truth in every tall tale. The people the ancients knew and revered as gods really did have a different kind of food. Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.
                It is interesting that the White Gods have a different diet than ordinary humans. Dairy was a staple food among them only they could eat. The food of the gods is forbidden and undrinkable to a majority of the world’s population today. About two-thirds of the world’s population cannot drink Milk Products into adolescence and adulthood, but the White Gods can. Why do they do it? How do they do it? Is there any real benefit to eating the food of the Gods?
                In the distant past all humans were lactose intolerant past the age of weaning. Lactose the main carbohydrate in milk can be digested in childhood because children’s bodies produce Lactase. Lactase the chemical that breaks down lactose is no longer produced after the mother stops breastfeeding. Lactose or Milk Sugar can be consumed by Caucasians because Lactase is produced their whole life as a result of a single genetic mutation that occurred around 10,000 years ago.
This Lactose Persistence Gene reaches its highest percentages in Northern Europe but it is also may have evolved separately in some African Tribes. The trait has been linked to pastoral people who have spent many generations living with cows. Although it would not surprising if these Black African tribes were descendants of White Gods. The Cameroonians are black Africans and have the R1b DNA of the British Isles. If this trait evolved separately then that proves people can gain lactose tolerance by drinking milk.
Did they gain tolerance and then start drinking milk or did they start drinking milk and gain tolerance? Evidently the first Northern Europeans to mutate Lactose Tolerance didn’t have much in the way of food. After many generations of continuing to feed their children Cow’s Milk after the mother was finished weaning their descendants gained a tolerance to it that lasted their whole lives. In a “what came first, the chicken or the egg” situation, this seems to be the logical answer. They probably did this because of limited food resources in the cold northern parts. If you don’t have anything else to eat you will take what you can get. People in these situations would want their children drinking milk from mother cow as long as they possibly could.
After a long period of these people relying on their herds for milk and the herd relying on the humans for protection they formed a symbiotic relationship. Symbiosis means “living together” in Greek, and it occurs when two different kinds of organisms live together, usually in a mutually beneficial way. The Clown Fish eats the enemies of Anemones and poops to make fertilizer to pay the “rent” for using the Anenome as its housing. The Clown Fish is immune to the Anemones stinging cells so it is well protected. This is a mutually beneficial relationship.
Some Symbiotes are called Obligate Symbiotes which means both parties need the other to live. Some are called Facultative Symbiotes which means that only one party needs the other. It’s that way with humans and cows, the humans need the milk in order to live and the Cows need the humans to live. Without Milk Northern Europeans will be not be healthy. They will have deficiencies in key vitamins and minerals. Without the Milk it is doubtful they could survive the long winters of the north. If the Cows were left to their own in the wild in their domesticated forms they would not survive very long. It is a mutually beneficial relationship that depends on each other for survival.. A true Obligate Symbiosis. Some would say this is a Facultative Symbiosis where only the cows need the humans to survive but I disagree. I believe that humans with Lactose Tolerance do indeed need milk to survive. They won’t die immediately but lack of these key vitamins and minerals will lead to grave health consequences over time.
 Some Symbiotes take the form of parasites. Humans drinking the milk of Cows and eating their meat seems to be a parasitic symbiotic relationship. The humans literally drink the Life Force in the form of vitamin, minerals, and fats out of a cow. The Cow depends on humans for protection and to feed them but Humans do not feed cows from their own life force. Perhaps the best description of this Symbiotic Relationship between Humans and Cows is a Parasitic Obligate Symbiotism.
                As a result of the endless supply of nutrition that the Milk Cow supplied it became an object of worship and veneration to the ancient White Gods. The cow was worshipped across the ancient world as a divine figure. The logic behind it is easy to understand. Mother’s gave milk to their children. Without the Cows the ancient milk drinkers would probably starve. The Cow is their mother and should be revered and treated in that way.
                In the Sumerian myth called “the Debate between Cattle and Grain” the god An creates the Cattle Goddess Lahar and the Grain Goddess Ashnan to feed and clothe the Anunnaki the civilizers of Sumer. This scripture is representative of the fact that the Anunnaki were Lactose Tolerant Caucasians. Before the Anunnaki showed up it was said that the Sumerians were running around naked eating grass like sheep and drinking water from ditches. The gods decided to bestow a favor on man and gave him Cattle and Grain so he could become civilized. The story says;
                The Anunnaki gods of the Holy Mound partook of the bounty of Cattle and Grain and were not sated; the Anunnaki Gods of the Holt Mound partook of the sweet milk of their holy cattle but were not sated. For their own well being in the Holy Cattle they gave them to mankind as sustenance.
                Generally speaking the Milk Cow was seen as a mother goddess because of the milk she produced. In other Sumerian Myths they worshipped bulls as well. The Bull Gods were generally recognized for their meat. They were generally bearded symbolizing the masculinity of the bull. In Sumerian sculptures they often had blue eyes. Gugulanna the Sumerian “Bull of Heaven’’ was worshipped in the Sumerian pantheon as a god and as a constellation. Many of these images of the Bull of Heaven were made of gold. This is a possible origin for the Golden Calve story of the Hebrew Bible in the Book of Exodus..
                Cows were a very important part of Egyptian life and religion as well. Apis the bull god was introduced to Egypt shortly after the Two Lands were united. He is often idenetified with Osiris and Ptah, and is known as the “Renewer of Life”. Apis was the most important of all the Sacred Animals worshipped in Egypt. If a farmer’s cow had the right markings he would be taken away worshipped as a God. He would be given a harem of females to breed and be used as an oracle to predict future events. Hathor was the milk producing mother goddess. In one of her forms called Hesat she is literally a milk cow. Her worship was extended to all Milk Cows. Both of these Cow Deities were often associated with the Kings and Queens of Egypt.
                In the earliest myths from India we see the importance of the Cow. The Bharatas the founding tribe of Vedic Civilization revered cows for the sustenance they gave. They were seen as symbols of wealth and power, no gift to a loved one was greater. The cow was considered sacred but was not literally worshipped as a God at this point in Hinduism’s development. Later the Cow was turned into a goddess. This is where the American term “Holy Cow” originally comes from.  Kamadhenu was a Hindu Mother Goddess that was said to be the Mother of All Cows and “Mother of All Civilization”. She was created when the Ocean of Milk was churned to create the Food of the Gods, Amrita. Since all cows are seen as earthly manifestations of Kamadhenu all cows are treated as divine. In India, in the modern Hindu Religion the cow is inviolable. It is a serious crime to hurt or kill a cow. Beef is not consumed by the Hindus of India but the milk is used to make yoghurt and Ghee which are very popular there. Mahatma Ghandi said that the “central fact of Hinduism is cow protection”. The Cow is considered divine in Hinduism and they are serious about it.
                In Ancient Greece cows were awarded divine status as well. Hera the Queen of the Greek Gods was originally a Cow Godess. She represented motherhood and fertility. Zeus often took the form of a bull representative of his position as father to the gods. The cow was especially important to the forerunners of the Greeks the Minoans. Serapis was a bull god that was worshipped which combined elements of Greek and Egyptian religion. This was done on purpose to help bring about peace and assimilation between the two nations.
                                Although idols dedicated to cow gods were destroyed in the Hebrew Bible the act of sacrificing cows was of major importance to the Hebrew Religion. Perhaps this was an ancient tradition they themselves inherited from an earlier forgotten time. Just like in Egyptian religion certain cows were considered more holy than others. In the Bible one of the key prophecies will be fulfilled with the slaughtering of a Red Heifer without a blemish. The Third Temple cannot be built until a Red Heifer without a single hair of another color is born in Israel. Red Heifers were also associated with Apollo in the Greek Myths.
                Even though the Chinese are generally Lactose Intolerant they have traces of Cow Worship involved in their earliest religions. In the worship of Shang Di once a year the King of China is to slaughter a bull to honor Shang Di their god. In this ritual there are offerings of drinks and food made to this Chinese monotheistic god. This is very similar to Judaism and the original Vedic Religion in that cows are revered but only God is worshipped not any animals.
                We have many Cow Gods and Godesses in Western European tradition as well. In the Mythology of the Norsemen the Cow Goddess Audumbla “the wet nurse of the giants” is the nurturing mother of humanity. It is said she nursed Ymir, the first primeval being, with her divine milk. The Irish Goddess Boann or “White Cow” sounds similar to Hathor the White Cow Goddess of Egypt. Boann is also linked to the Celtic Brigid the Mother Goddess associated with Dairy Cows. Brigid was also known to the Brittons as Brigantia and is known today as St. Brigid
MORE COW TRADITIONS
                There can be no doubt that the Cow Cults all have their origin with the milk drinking White Gods. It seems at first in the earliest religions Cows were literally worshipped as gods and in later traditions the cow became more of a sacrament without actual worship. It seems after time, long distances, and inter-cultural diffusion traditions lose their original meanings yet retain a semblance of the original practice. Who could guess that Lactose Intolerant China’s ancient Border Sacrifice of a Bull originally comes from a lactose tolerant people that depend on Milk Cows for their sustenance? I wonder if the people of India who are majority Lactose Intolerant wonder why their religion has so much to do with drinking milk. The Theory of the White Gods makes this unintelligible absurdity understandable. Most of the world’s religions and tradition comes from one original Lactose Tolerant source.
                In many of these myths and legends the Cow is viewed as a Mother Goddess because she gives man her milk. In the Hindu religion it is claimed that the Cow is the “Mother of all Civilization”. There actually may be something to this.  We know that the White God’s who are centered around the Rh- Bloodline were the first people to bring about widespread civilization. Perhaps the Milk is the secret to their success. Perhaps the Hindus have it right and the Cow truly is the Mother of All Civilization.
As the Ancient Europeans moved further into the Northern Hemisphere the colder the environment got. To survive these people would use the body parts of animals they killed for many things. It was very cold so they used the animals fur for clothes to keep warm. There was not much food around so they also used these animals for food. They used their bones and sinews to make tools, weapons, and fire.
 To make life easier these ancient people domesticated animals to make them more available. The Dog, Man’s Best Friend to the End, was the first animal to be domesticated by humans. Wolves were in the initial stages of being domesticated around 30,000 years ago. This coincides with the advent of Cro-Magnon Man. Dogs as a distinct species appear around 20,000 years ago in the country of Belgium in North Western Europe. European people have been around dogs so long we have higher levels of immunity to their dander than other peoples. They appear to have helped ancient man hunt other animals which were in turn domesticated too. Pictures of Horses started appearing in caves in Western Europe around 30,000 years ago. These horses were wild then and were hunted for food. The Date is disputed but the Horse was domesticated in between the time when the original horses became extinct about 14,000 years ago and 6,000 years ago when we have archaeological evidence for Horse Domestication. These Ancient Europeans were also the first to domesticate Sheep, Chickens, Oxen Goats. Pigs and Donkeys. However none of these animals seem to have been as important or more revered than the Cow.
Often with these animals that man has domesticated we see a larger number of their kind living with man than in the wild. These relationships are mutually beneficial for both parties. The Ox gets fed for its work pulling things for its human master. The Cow seems to be the only one I can think of that has achieved what I call an Obligate Symbiosis, where the mutual benefits have turned into necessities on both parts.
Man has bred his animal friends for certain characteristics. None of the domesticated animals are identical to their wild cousins. It is important to notice that it’s not so much that man tamed wild animals as it is we bred the wildness out of them. The Dog has been bred for smaller teeth and weaker Jaws for less harmful bites. Their eyes were bred to be considerably larger than wolves which make them adorable. Sheep were bred for their wool, Chickens for their breasts, Horses for their speed, and Donkeys for their strength. Cows were bred to have more meat and larger mammary glands to make more food for the tribe. The more milk and meat they have the larger the tribe can be.
Dairy production is a great way to sustain a large population. Dairy from Cows can make many more times the food per square acre than crops from agriculture can. This can account for the rapid spread of the Indo-Europeans. The food is also very nutritious which made the ancient milk-drinkers very large. Julius Caesar believed the Celts and germans were so large because they ate meat and drank milk.
All of the great conquering tribes of history like the Aryans, Arabs, and Mongols were known for riding around on domesticated horses and camels. The Scythians would drink the milk of their horses earning them the nick name of “the Mare Milkers”. Their nomadic lifestyle and eating habits were probably their greatest strength. They could travel great distances to invade other nations and not run out of food. If the ancient Chinese were to launch an invasion they might have to go home as soon as the rice is gone. The food supply of Lactose Tolerant Peoples are carried right along with them, literally on the horse.
                The gene that causes Lactose Tolerance to be present into adulthood is said to have mutated around 12,000 years ago. This is around the same time when the Blue Eye Gene first appears. Lighter skin probably also accompanied the Blue Eye Gene. These mutations were probably caused by a vitamin deficiency caused by low amounts of light in the Northern parts of the world. Most humans get their Vitamin D from the sunlight. In the darker places of the world there might not have been enough light to give people all of the Vitamin D and other nutrients they need. As a result of this deficiency nature did what it had to do to survive and adapted. They then lost melanin in their skin and eyes to allow for more production of this key Vitamin. They also got this Vitamin from drinking milk and eating meat. They adapted to their environment and it made them stronger.
This is also around the same time we see the very first signs of civilization in the form of cities. At this time we start seeing familiar symbols like the cross, swastika, and the serpent. Many of these symbols later became letters in the world’s oldest writing systems like the Vinca Culture Writing System. The Vinca Culture were also among the first humans to practice metallurgy. In this time we begin to see the giant stone megalithic structures and the stone burial mounds. An elaborate Calendar System and Zodiac were created to determine the precession of the equinoxes and the day of the year. The amount of knowledge and technology that was discovered during this period was revolutionary for mankind. We went from Hunters and Gatherers living in caves to shepherding nomads that subsisted on our flocks. We went from ignorant savages to civilized human beings capable of understanding the unexplainable mysteries of the Universe.
 All of this was possible because of the extra time in the day man had made for himself by delegating the responsibility of food production to the cow. With his newfound freedom from drudgery and the constant hunt, Man was able to ponder all of creation and create things to make his life even easier. He was able to travel the world because of the swiftness of the Horse. This Freedom allowed the people this book calls the White Gods to establish centers of civilization around the world. The armies of these nations were nearly unbeatable because like the Scythians they could win a war by not fighting. They could just pack it all up and go. Other nations were dependent on their crops and could not traverse the world waging war because they had Work to do.
Perhaps the Hindu Religion is correct in calling the Cow the Mother of all Civilization. Without the Cow we would have no White Gods and with the White Gods we would have much different world. Perhaps the Sumerians would still be drinking water from the streams and eating grass. If not for the civilizer gods the cultures that formed in Sumer, Egypt, India, Mexico, China, Greece, and Oceania among many others what culture would we have? For what culture has ever raised itself to prominence without the influence of one of these nations. All of the great centers of culture from the ancient world have the influence of the White Gods. It is quite probable that Lactose Tolerance did allow for the creation of all civilization. I’m sure the people in the old days that milked the Cow that give his family milk would understand this very well.
In our modern world we tend to be disassociated with the cows. This has allowed for an abuse of the cow. All of the things that have been done for the bottom line in the Beef Industry have put the health of cows at risk and when their health is at risk ours is too. The food they are fed is terrible and most often not their natural food source. This is usually done to fatten them up. This results in less vitamins and minerals for the Cows and the humans that eat them. They are also laced with many hormones and antibiotics that put both species health at risk. Truly, whatever we do to them we do to ourselves. This happens as a result of our Parasitic Obligate Symbiotic Relationship with the Cow Species.
We need to respect cows and give them the attention and care they need. They are the Mothers of Civilization. They helped create the modern world with all of its wonders…and it’s all the result of a single genetic mutation.
