Lou Gehrig's Disease


Lou Gehrig was part of a
German family. His mother
fed him, long after he was
an adult, bratwurst, many sausages,
braunschweiger (made from livers) ,
frankfurters, hamburgers,
Schweinebraten (made from pig flesh) .

Perhaps the sausages and hot dogs
were in 'natural casings'... the actual
intestinal links of the murdered
animal.

He got sick over time from eating animals
and now people are asked to
give money for torture of animals
to an organization, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) which doesn't
warn people not to eat animals.
