"Whatsoever have fins and scales viagra pfizer cheap in the waters in the seas and in the rivers, them shall ye eat" (xi. 9). " Vet these may ye eat of every riving creeping thing that goeth upon all viagra online wiki four which have legs above their feet to leap withal upon the earth " (xi. 21 I. " Even these of them ye may eat: the locust, beetle, and grasshopper, but all other flying creeping things which have four feet shall be an abomination unto you " (xi. 22). " And these are they which ye shall have in abomi- nation among the fowls: they shall not be eaten : eagle, ossifrage, osprey, vulture, kite, raven, owl, night- hawk, cuckoo, hawk, cormorant, swan, pelican, stork, heron, lapwing, and bat"(xi. 13). It is interesting to note what the Koran says in this connection, viz.: "Ye are forbidden to eat that which dieth of itself, and the blood, and swine's flesh, and tli.it which has been slaughtered or killed by a blow or by a fall or by the horns of another beast, and that which has been eaten by a wild beast." June 13, 1896] MEDICAL RECORD. 849 The Jews eat nothing that has been shot or trapped ; in fact none but domestic animals, and only those that are properly slaughtered. This brings us to the most important part of our subject, except perhaps the pro- scription of pork, namely, the method of slaughter. A Russian by the name of Dembo has investigated this question, in its relation to cattle more viagra online wiki particularly, and I shall quote quite extensively from him. Before taking up Dr. Dembo's work I will quote from Prof. Dr. W. Preyer, of the University of Berlin: "As I have declared in a report based on viagra online wiki observations and experiments in the laboratory and in the slaughter house, the method at shechita which is practised bv the Jews with remarkable success is superior to all other methods of killing, because it is the safest and most expeditious, because the animals killed bv it are sub- jected to the least amount of pain, and by it the re- moval of the blood is effected in the most complete manner." I am too little acquainted with the history of the Jews and with the Jewish ritual law to understand why they have for centuries adhered to the latter with as- tonishing pertinacity; but that this consistency is well justified from the standpoint of physiology, that it much better answers the humane purpose of the pro- tection of animals than the uncertain methods of the Christian butchers, and that it is better calculated to further the well-being of the nation than the other, is proved and established. Dr. Dembo claims that the Jewish method of slaugh- ter is more humane, more hygienic, viagra online wiki and more eco- nomical than any other method, and he proceeds to prove his claim in viagra online wiki a lengthy monograph. The matter of determining which of the methods of slaughter viagra online wiki is most humane is of great importance and is gone into at considerable length by Dr. Dembo, and as a result of many personal observations in the slaughterhouses of England, Prance, Germany, Switzerland, and Italy, he concludes that the Jewish method is most humane, because consciousness on the average is lost sooner than by any of the other methods, as, for instance, transfixion; stunning with a mallet, with a poleaxe, Pruneau's mask, shooting, or the neck stab; conscious- ness is lost in from three to five seconds by the tirst- named method. Approaching the subject from a hygienic stand- point, I shall first give a butcher's viagra online wiki reasons tor using the Jewish method: " Because it combines the most humane treatment of the animal with the greatest safety viagra online wiki in killing it. The shechita cut is indisputably the most rapid and safe- mode of slaughtering. The fact that the cut is made with a sharp knife, which occasions no swelling of the arteries and allows a great outflow of blood to take- place in a few seconds, shows this to be the most rapid and at the same time least painful mode of slaughtering, for the sharper the instrument the less painful the cut. Stunning is attended with much more danger and too viagra online wiki often with much more pain to the ani- mal. '" It often, when the hand that carries it out is not a thoroughly practical one, results in torture to the ani- viagra pfizer cheap mal. The slightest movement of the head by the ani- mal at the moment of striking will cause the blow to fall wrong, the most skilful slaughterman being unable to prevent this, and no matter whether the ill-falling blow cause the animal pain or whether it be only frightened and excited to movement by it, the result in any case is that the killing is protracted and made more difficult. viagra online wiki " Viewed from the viagra pfizer cheap standpoint of economy the stun- ning viagra pfizer cheap methods are unquestionably more advantageous to the butcher, for every stunned animal yields a greater weight of meat: this is because the blood re- mains stagnant in the veins as the result of the blows, and when the arteries are afterward cut the blood flows out very slowly, the total loss of blood being al- ways less than in viagra pfizer cheap the case of throat cutting direct, and the weight of meat consequently greater. But the consideration of the few pounds of meat less by the Jewish method is many times outweighed by its hygi- enic advantages.
