Just as disgusting as beaver anal glands, ice cream is made from the bodily secretions of a large animal, kept in a far from natural environment and fed things it was not meant to eat. Does anyone remember the amount of pus that's allowed to be in milk products? How about antibiotics and hormones?

It makes you wonder what those "chips" in chocolate chip ice cream really are...

I don't eat any ice cream because it is made od the breast milk of mother cows. That milk is not for us. We get our first food from the breast milk of our human mothers. Calves need the milk of their own mothers. Would you kneel down, push a newborn calf away from his mother, put your mouth to the breast of a cow, and drink? If you eat ice cream or any other dairy that is exactly what you are doing. Stealing milk from a baby (and killing him instead, for veal).

Thanks Jamie, you're a star! Whatever will the human race think up next, we truly are a disgrace. Castoreum is used by beavers to scent mark their territory,and to attract a mate. It's there for a purpose, and that purpose is not to flavour uneccessary food for humans. Leave the poor creatures alone can't we?

That's discusting!! I hope it's not in all flavors, but probably is, since the vanilla bean is what flavors vanilla ice cream not beaver anal glands.
