“Has science gone too far?” has become something of a meme of late.

Preventing illnesses in humans is a high priority for scientists that devote their lives to finding cures and techniques that keep people healthy, but sometimes a plan comes along that is so wild it can cause even the most devoted science fans to furrow their brow.

Stop feeding your pet this popular pet food immediately

April 14th, 2021

Pet owners will do whatever they can to keep their pets healthy (if you have a pet and don’t feel that way, you probably shouldn’t have a pet), and that includes providing quality food. Unfortunately for cat lovers, one of the most popular brands of cat food just issued a recall for bags that were …
