> Hi Netters,
> 1st. Rolf Harris has a Vet programme on Channel 2 at 6pm. During
> a part of one programme a couple brought in a sick chicken. The vet gave the
> chicken an anti-biotic injection. The next day the chicken was OK and gave
> the owners this warning. Do not eat any of the eggs for three days as the
> chicken will pass any excess anti-biotic into the yoke. This is really bad
> for you. Hope there is no anti-biotics put into chicken feed with the eggs
> we eat.
> 2nd. If I awake during the night I turn on the ABC News Radio.
> During the night there is news from Germany, Holland and England. The news
> story from Holland was disturbing. Seals were found dying along the coast
> from Denmark to Holland. A vet check found the seals were dying from
> chemicals including PCBs.
> After intensive investigation the following was the result. The
> report said that chemicals coming from millions of computers made before
> 1998 contained these chemicals. They went up into the atmosphere and then
> were washed down by rain and then into rivers to the sea. How will this
> effect the birds?
> 3rd. The Norwegians were thinking of selling excess whale meat
> to Japan. A check of the whale meat found it to be unfit for human
> consumption due to the same chemicals. Whales being bigger were able to
> store the chemicals in their meat and blubber. One person said that from the
> start of the manufacture of chemicals, there are now approx 85,000 available.
> I think I will turn off the TV and radio, then do more birding.
> All the Best
