Foie gras (translated literally from French as "fatty liver" and pronounced 'fwah grah') is produced by cruel and inhumane farming practices. At just a few months old, ducks are confined inside dark sheds and force-fed enormous amounts of food several times a day. A farm worker grabs each duck and, one by one, thrusts a metal pipe down their throats so that a mixture of corn can be forced directly into their gullets. In just a matter of weeks, the ducks become grossly overweight and their livers expand up to 10 times their normal size.

Foie Gras means "Fat Liver"
It's very very luxury menu that originates from France But this dish comes from FORCE FEEDING a goose to make them develop FATTY LIVER DISEASE.
Let's see the source of this wonderful dish
The geese are forced to eat.. even if it does not desire to
The metal pipe pass through the throat to stomach ...even if it does not want to eat anything
To make the liver bigger and fatter
Cages are very small and they force the geese to stay in one position to avoid using energy, thus converting all food into fat.
How sad their eyes show up
Their legs were bloated from long standing everyday. No need to sleep because they will be caught to eat again
Although they try to defend themselves But it is useless
How sad this life is, They are forced to eat until they are dead or their bodies cant stand with this
You see... the food is over its mouth, The left who survive have crapped to be inflamed asses...blood easily come up with the shit Not only mouth hurt, throat hurt , all time stomach ache from the food , Fat to bloated legs , no sleep , no exercise But also no free movement for life to see the sky or river This your Healthy Liver like those Chicken, To get the beautiful and white liver that becomes unusually big like this
As Liver-canned from aboard
Let Us Stop Eating this...Mcdonald & KFC Lovers!!!
How sad this life is..?!!
Don't U think?!!!
Ban foie gras in India.
