(NaturalNews) Political cartoon animator Mark Fiore has released a satirical flash animation depicting the use of "downer" cows in the human food supply. Created after the unveiling of an underground video exposing the meat industry's extreme cruelty to cows and illegal use of diseased cows in the food supply, Mark Fiore's animation is entitled, "Doreen the Downer" and can be viewed in any web browser at the following address: http://www.markfiore.com/doreen_downer_0

The animation offers a satirical look at the lapse in ethics and safety in the meat processing industry, revealing how cows are fattened up with grains and food byproducts, injected with hormones, denied healthful environments, and then dragged onto meat processing lines in order to be slaughtered for profit -- even if they're diseased and can't walk! The cartoon isn't gross or graphic, but it is quite sad, and it offers sharp commentary on the inexcusable conduct of the beef industry today (and why consumers should stop eating beef).

I recommend that everyone watch this informative animation. View Doreen the Downer at:

What could be wrong with "Voluntary Regulation?"

Another flash animation by Mark Fiore exposes the fraudulent regulatory mechanism called "voluntary regulation" which allows corrupt government officials to announce pro-consumer solutions while giving greedy corporations the ability to keep selling dangerous products that actually harm people.

A few years ago, for example, Bill Clinton announced a "children's health" agreement with the soft drink industry that he claimed would remove soda vending machines from public schools. The problem with the agreement? It was based on voluntary regulation. The result is that soda vending machines are still in the public schools, and nothing has actually changed. It was great P.R., but ultimately made of nothing but empty promises.

Politicians and corporations love to announce voluntary regulation agreements, because it gives them lots of positive P.R. but doesn't require them to actually change the way they behave. This animation by Mark Fiore exposes the ridiculousness of voluntary regulation in an informative, entertaining way.

Defend the military budget, soldier!

In the realm of politics and national budgets, Mark Fiore has also released a hilarious animation depicting a drill sergeant teaching military recruits how to defend the most important thing in the world: The Pentagon's military budget!

In this video, entitled, Basic Budget Training, you'll learn how the Pentagon budget has driven the United States into bankruptcy and why the pro-war fanatics running this country keep shoveling more cash into the war machine.

Petro for President!

Finally, Mark Fiore's most recent animation reveals that no matter who wins the current presidential election, the country is still ruled by oil! "President Petro" shows why oil continues to dominate the U.S. economy and global finance, and why rising oil prices will lead America into depression and financial ruin.

As these videos demonstrate, Mark Fiore does an outstanding job commenting on many of the most urgent issues of our times. Now here's the question: Can we encourage Fiore to do a video on the drugging of our nation's children with Ritalin and SSRI drugs?

If you get the chance, send Fiore a polite e-mail and ask if he'll consider creating a video about the mass drugging of schoolchildren with pharmaceuticals. We'll feature it on NaturalNews, of course, and we can even schedule a joint announcement with Fiore. Tell him NaturalNews sent ya! (And be polite, please. He's a busy guy...) Here's his contact page:

About the author:Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com) and a globally recognized scientific researcher in clean foods. He serves as the founding editor of NaturalNews.com and the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation. Adams is also highly proficient in running liquid chromatography, ion chromatography and mass spectrometry time-of-flight analytical instrumentation.

Adams is a person of color whose ancestors include Africans and Native American Indians. He's also of Native American heritage, which he credits as inspiring his "Health Ranger" passion for protecting life and nature against the destruction caused by chemicals, heavy metals and other forms of pollution.

Adams is the founder and publisher of the open source science journal Natural Science Journal, the author of numerous peer-reviewed science papers published by the journal, and the author of the world's first book that published ICP-MS heavy metals analysis results for foods, dietary supplements, pet food, spices and fast food. The book is entitled Food Forensics and is published by BenBella Books.

In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition. Through the non-profit CWC, Adams also launched Nutrition Rescue, a program that donates essential vitamins to people in need. Click here to see some of the CWC success stories.

With a background in science and software technology, Adams is the original founder of the email newsletter technology company known as Arial Software. Using his technical experience combined with his love for natural health, Adams developed and deployed the content management system currently driving NaturalNews.com. He also engineered the high-level statistical algorithms that power SCIENCE.naturalnews.com, a massive research resource featuring over 10 million scientific studies.

Adams is well known for his incredibly popular consumer activism video blowing the lid on fake blueberries used throughout the food supply. He has also exposed "strange fibers" found in Chicken McNuggets, fake academic credentials of so-called health "gurus," dangerous "detox" products imported as battery acid and sold for oral consumption, fake acai berry scams, the California raw milk raids, the vaccine research fraud revealed by industry whistleblowers and many other topics.

Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.

In addition to his activism, Adams is an accomplished musician who has released over a dozen popular songs covering a variety of activism topics.
