Cow-Based Motor Oil for All Your Frying and http://meivending.com/cheap-viagra-online Lawnmowing Needs

There's too much cow fat in the world...

No, for real, there's so much cow fat that we no longer know what to do with it all. We used to be able to fry things in it, but saturated fats, when fried, turn into trans fats. And, nowadays, people are frightened of trans fats. So what are we going to do with the 200 lbs of tallow that result from the processing of just one cow?

Why...make motor oil from it, if course!

Green Earth Technologies is taking all of that excess, inexpensive, and previously useless tallow and turning it into cleaning solutions and motor oil for cars, lawnmowers, and boats. The company's slogan, "Be Green, Sacrifice Nothing," is kind crap...because your motor oil is one small part of order cialis in united states the impact of whatever device you're putting it in, but that doesn't mean this isn't pretty cool.

Their website talks a lot about sustainability...packaging made from recycled milk jugs, soy-based inks, etc. But it doesn't talk a lot about the fact that their products are pretty much made from lard. I suppose they're entitled to their marketing strategies but, honestly, the cow fat part is the coolest thing about this stuff!

I've always been a fan of using as much of the animals we eat as possible, and this fits right in with that, so I think it's a great idea, even though the www.deboerderijhuizen.nl environmental impact is negligible.

This is a fine idea as long as the demand remains at a level that is levitra generic brand sustainable with the amount of fats we already have. Otherwise you are just supporting factory farming, which is extremely far from Green or "eco"-anything. It's extremely important to good choice viagra one a day keep that in mind.

I think the better way to look at it is as a waste product. It's already there and I doubt there will be any cows grown simply for their fat (when you can probably get oil from the ground for far cheaper).

The only way it supports factory farms is by making a cow slightly more profitable. Of course the actual market force is always going to be our crazy obsession with beef for every meal.

Also they probably don't focus on the animal product too much because the kind of person who would buy a green product is also the kind of person that would probably have an issue with ethical treatment (or environmental impact) of livestock.

My point is that a lot of people are working very hard to gradually reduce our dependence on www.boehler.org cows, red meat, and animals in general for a lot of reasons [health, environmental impact, and animal rights issues themselves among the levitra online no prescription top reasons]. Created just another way to depend on these animals for fuel [we could take a lesson in how the biofuel bandwagon was jumped upon to show just what kind of impact support of cialis headaches alternative fuels of any sort will have] is not a good thing. Creating a demand even for waste elements is buying viagra on line supporting the system that creates them. If this fuel is successful, and demand grows beyond what current systems support, what then? It's a good stopgap measure, and I'm all for making the best of every resource we can possibly find, but that's all.

And, most unfortunately, you're a bit mistaken about that last statement as well. Some of the staunchest advocates against animal rights and fiercest supporters of anything that will get a steak to them quicker, bigger, and rarer often term themselves "environmentalists". I wish the two went hand-in-hand, that all Greenies cared as much about the environmental impacts of their food as they did their cars, that they cared about their health as well as their footprint, but from my personal experience it just isn't always the case.

*un*saturated fats become trans fats
written by Joel, March 10, 2008
Saturated fats are all locked into the *cis* position by the purchase cialis in canada biological processes that produce them.

It is only the non-biological hydrogenation of unsaturated fats (i.e., opening up a double bond between carbons, and attaching a new hydrogen atom to each carbon as single bonds are formed) that can lock fats into the *trans* configuration. This is because the double bonds are flexible, and might be bent into an unnatural shape during the hydrogenation process.

Frying in lard (the traditional fat for this purpose), or in coconut or palm oil, may actually be healthier, because there isn't the opportunity for accidental hydrogenation.

Beef is great. There's not much out there that tastes better than a good steak. All this company is doing is taking waste that no one wants to fry with anymore and paying for it. Without people buying the left over fat to discount viagra united kingdom fry the ranchers have to find some other way to dispose it. We're never going to raise cows for fuel, even though their methane could be captured and burned as a fuel. They are food. Everything else is just gravy.
