It’s probably worth noting that “real” scientists are far from objective, often have blatant conflicts of interests, financial interests, and if they work for corporations or the government would never reveal something as shocking as what these headlines say, regardless of whether it’s true or not. We can’t trust “scientists” historically about radiation and nuclear energy safety. We can’t trust them about GMO’s. Regardless of this article it is a fact that Fukushima has been dumping massive amounts of toxic water into the Pacific since the beginning, it’s never going to stop, and that this is both spreading and exposing sea life. That’s a fact. Whether it’s now or in 5 or 10 years, eventually this headline will be true.
It is important to be sure that the horse?s diet meets all of its protein, mineral and vitamin requirements as these nutrients are critical for muscle tone and tissue repair, wound healing, and prevention of infection and illness. Horses with Cushing?s, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome can be managed by feeding a diet that meets their nutritional requirements but has little starch and sugar ? for example, good quality forage, highly digestible fiber sources (., unmolassed sugar beet pulp, soy hulls), fat supplementation if needed to maintain weight, and protein, vitamins and minerals in the form of a ration balancer.
Diagnostic & Surgical Arthroscopy . Direct visualization of the joint's interior can be performed using an arthroscope. In many cases, abnormalities not readily visible radiographically (upon x-ray) or ultrasonographically will be apparent through the arthroscope. Once isolated, certain lesions (such as meniscal tears, bone chips or subchondral cysts) can be debrided under arthroscopic guidance. "Cleaning up" the joint in this fashion may help to reestablish the horse's soundness. Diagnostic/ surgical arthroscopy requires general anesthesia, however, and therefore must be performed in a hospital environment. Cost for the procedure varies depending on the type and location of lesion(s).
