Prodotti di uso comune fatti con parti di animali, ecco quelli che non conosciamo

di Marco Mancini 54

Chi più chi meno, tutti ci dichiariamo amici degli animali. Se così è veramente, non basta però diventare vegetariani. Il modo migliore per salvare gli animali non consiste soltanto nel manifestare in loro favore o nel mangiare esclusivamente verdura quanto soprattutto stare attenti ai prodotti che si usano.

Di solito pensiamo che solo i cosmetici e poco altro provengano da animali o da test compiuti su di essi, ma esistono alcuni oggetti di uso comune, con cui tutti abbiamo a che fare ogni giorno, che provengono da parti di animale, a volte per tutte le marche, altre soltanto per scelta di alcune aziende.

L’Ontario Animal Farm Council afferma che, in media, viene utilizzo il 98% di un animale. Di quel 98%, circa il 55% viene utilizzato per i prodotti alimentari ed il restante 45% per i prodotti non commestibili. Andiamo a vedere quali sono:

1. Buste di plastica. Non c’è solo il petrolio a formare questi terribili prodotti, che per fortuna stanno sparendo dalle nostre case, ma anche grassi animali utilizzati come additivi per

migliorare le proprietà dei materiali e/o per aiutare nella lavorazione dei polimeri primi

afferma il sito Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News. La Tyson Foods sta sperimentando buste di plastica e adesivi provenienti dalla proteina cheratina che si trova nelle piume di pollo, ed il progetto è di utilizzarla anche per i pannolini usa e getta ed i camici ospedalieri.

2. Gomme per auto e biciclette. L’acido stearico aiuta la gomma dei pneumatici a mantenere la forma stabile nonostante l’attrito. E questo acido ha, nella maggior parte dei casi, origini animali, nonostante si possa ottenere anche dalle piante.

3. Colla per strumenti musicali. La colla animale (ottenuta dalle ossa e tessuto cognitivo bolliti) è apparentemente il migliore adesivo per il fissaggio di strumenti musicali in legno, come violini e pianoforti. Anche se a volte vengono utilizzate altre colle sintetiche, la colla animale è facilmente reperibile ed ampiamente usata per le correzioni dei mobili e la lavorazione del legno.

4. Biocarburanti. Canna da zucchero e mais sono le materie prime che vengono in mente in un primo momento quando pensiamo ai biocarburanti, ma negli ultimi anni l’uso di grassi di origine animale (carne bovina e pollo) è entrato nella produzione di biodiesel.

5. Fuochi d’artificio. Non solo inquinano, ma alcuni sono fatti con lo stesso componente utilizzato nel settore dei pneumatici, l’acido stearico, utilizzato per impedire l’ossidazione dei metalli.

6. Ammorbidenti. Non tutti, ma in particolare l’ammorbidente Downy (che in Italia è pubblicizzato con il nome di Lenor) contiene cloruro di ammonio dimetilico da sego diidrogenato che viene da bovini, ovini e cavalli.

7. Shampoo & Balsamo. Come molti prodotti cosmetici, anche alcuni shampoo e balsamo hanno ingredienti di origine animale. Secondo la PETA, ci sono più di 20 componenti provenienti da animali che potrebbero trovarsi nel vostro shampoo e balsamo. Quando si legge “Pantenolo”, “Aminoacidi”, o “Vitamina B” in una bottiglia (solo per citarne alcuni), può essere che questi siano di origine animale o vegetale, ma la distinzione sull’etichetta non c’è. Alcune aziende hanno anche rimosso la parola “animale” da alcuni ingredienti per non perdere i clienti.

8. Dentifricio. La glicerina si trova in grassi animali e vegetali, che hanno una composizione chimica contenente dal 7% al 13% di glicerina. Quando separata, è utilizzata in una vasta gamma di prodotti, incluso il dentifricio. Anche qui distinguere l’origine è difficile. Colgate ha dichiarato di non utilizzare animali nei suoi prodotti, dunque visitate il sito web di un’azienda prima di acquistare il prodotto perché potrebbe esserci qualche indicazione.

9. Zucchero. All’apparenza è uno dei prodotti più vegetali che esistano. Eppure la cenere purificata proveniente dalle ossa di animali viene utilizzata nei filtri per raffinare lo zucchero di alcuni marchi. Anche in questo caso, per star sicuri, visitate i siti delle compagnie oppure i siti vegani specializzati.

  1. I simply want to mention I’m beginner to weblog and absolutely enjoyed this blog site. More than likely I’m want to bookmark your blog . You certainly have impressive posts. Thanks for sharing your webpage.

  2. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  21. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.
