PLEASE SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS WATCH THIS PODCAST ON YOUTUBE TEMPLE GRANDIN Dr. Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State. There is a movie about this amazing woman! It's simply called Temple Grandin. She's also been in Time Magazine. She grew up using tools. This is a great thing for children. It makes them think and learn. Dr. Grandin started by designing equipment. The equipment was an attempt to make treatment of cattle better, but people were still engaging in bad behavior. Things turned around when some activists won a case against McDonalds to do with treatment of livestock. Dr. Grandin took a bunch of executives, like those at McDonalds, on a tour of a cattle farm and they saw the terrible, inhumane conditions. Animal welfare went from an abstraction to something real. Dr. Grandin also believes in low carb high fat. She lost lots of weight and she just feels better overall. ETHICAL TREATMENT OF LIVESTOCK Dr. Grandin came up with a simple auditing program and she taught McDonalds how to use it. Wendy's and Burger King signed on. If you could not kill 95% of your animals in five shots, you lost your place on the supplier list for big companies like McDonalds. You could also fail in other ways, too. Acts of abuse were automatic fails. It was like traffic: you had to figure out what to control and make it very clear. Only three out of 75 suppliers had to buy new equipment. 1999 was the tipping point. Now, Dr. Grandin wants to fix issues on farms, and these are harder to fix. Housing is a big issue, genetic issues are a big issue, lameness is an issue. It's a significant minority who face these issues. Supply chain people need to get out of the office and see where there food comes. AUTISM Dr. Grandin is also a huge autism advocate. She was non-verbal until she was 4. Art made a big difference for her –– staying away from electronics is also important for autistic kids. Some autistic kids are visual thinkers, some mathematical thinkers, and some verbal thinkers. When she was a kid, people didn't understand autism, so she didn't receive the diagnosis until later in life. Doctors would think of her as 'retarded.' A big motivator for Dr. Grandin was that she wanted to show she was not stupid. In fact, she is brilliant. FAT DOC 2 IS AVAILABLE ON iTUNES and AMAZON Please also share it with family and friends!
