Hygienic Meat by Shehitah

 

Shehitah causes thorough desanguination: this fact assures hygienic meat. It is commonplace that bloodless meat (and Shehitah killed meat is to that extreme degree) is more wholesome. All the authorities point to the advisability of bleeding the carcass as thoroughly as possible.

Tests by I.A. Dembo have shown that Shehitah killed meat is less prone to decomposition that meat killed after the preliminary stunning. An animal killed by the Shehitah method goes through characteristic post-mortem convulsive movements. Dembo noted that these movements promote the keeping qualities of the meat. “The epileptic-form convulsion that unfailingly accompany the rapid escape of the blood in the Jewish method are likewise of extreme importance for the further chemical process are likewise of extreme importance for the further chemical process in the meat, by advancing the formation of lactic acid in the meat, diminishing the alkalinity of the blood that has been retained in the meat, promoting the escape of blood from the small blood vessels, and by accelerating the onset of rigor.” 2

Tests performed by Dr. David I. Macht of Baltimore investigating the comparative toxicity of Shehitah killed carcasses showed signs of less toxicity than those carcasses killed after being stunned. The explanation given is that the act of stunning injures the brain, and introduces toxic bodies into the circulatory system which may be detected in both the blood and the tissues.[1]

 

 

As noted above, the Shehitah killed meat is that to an extreme degree bloodless. It will not produce absolute desanguination. It will cause blood evacuation only from the large and fair sized blood vessels. An appreciable quantity of blood will be left in the spleen and liver, and in lesser quantities in the heart, the muscles, and in the remoter regions of the carcass. The law prescribes measures for the removal of this blood. A number of specified veins are required to be cut or pulled out. This method is known as porging.

The meat is to be soaked in cold water for about a half hour and then each cut is covered with a clean, coarse covering of salt for one hour. This draws the blood in the meat and retards bacteria growth.[2] It is then rinsed with water, to remove the salt and blood. After 72 hours (by Jewish law) from the time of slaughter, the meat is rinsed with water. This action reduces the bacteria action on the exterior of the carcass, and keeps the blood left from congealing.[3] As The Eternal reveals in the Bible, decay in a body will start to rapidly develop, within 72 hours of death.[4]

Under The Eternals’ law of eating meat sacrificed (slaughter), it plainly states that meat was and is to be consumed as food before 72 hours of the death of the animal. Each person that does not obey this command will suffer the consequence of ingesting meat that will harm him.[5]

Other tests by I.A. Dembo show that Shehitah killed meat is less prone to decomposition, thus revealing an interesting proof of why The Eternal said, “That those that eat meat beyond the point of 72 hours, would bear their sin of disobedience.”[6]

Dembo used as his measure of decomposition the increase of ammonia found in meat (It is known that ammonia is an excretory product of bacteria, and hence a product of decomposition. A piece of meat giving off more ammonia may be assumed to be the more decomposed.). Dembo placed 5 gram samples of meat, some from Shehitah killed animals and others from stunned and killed animals, into glass flasks each containing 100cc. of distilled water. Some of the flasks were kept at a temperature ranging from 37 to 43° F. The quantity of ammonia in each flask could be measured by noting the amount of decinormal solution of oxalic acid required to neutralize it. The results are indicated in the following table. The numbers represent the number of ccs of decinormal solution of oxalic acid added.

6 days————   –        –           19.9      35.7

 

It is to be observed that the stunned meat required more decinormal solution of oxalic acid at almost every stage, an indication that it had bred more bacteria. That meat compared most unfavorably in the testing of the samples placed in the incubating oven at blood heat.[7] A surprising fact here shown, is that the meat not chilled by refrigeration showed no evidence of deterioration until the end of the first 2-˝ hours. At the end of 2 days the meat killed by stunning shows a remarkable increase of deterioration that continued through the sixth day. Almost twice as fast as the one killed by the Shehitah method.

The procedure of soaking and salting the meat was not done in this experiment, as The Eternal requires it. Therefore, bacteria action was greater than it would have been if this procedure were used with the Shehitah method.

We have seen that the blood contains wastes-harmful bacteria, chemicals, plant poisons, and parasite eggs which make the blood a potent source of poisoning and disease to man. How? By handling, and consuming it when eating the animal flesh with the blood in it, and eating it when it’s in a state of decomposition in the animal’s carcass.

Herein we have seen the wisdom of The Eternal in properly killing and preparing “clean” animal flesh for mankind; and the folly of man in not obeying The Eternals commands and establishing his own way in killing and preparing almost any animal flesh, considered “clean and unclean” to The Eternal.

We have seen love, mercy, and wisdom in the method of Shehitah, which provides the animal flesh without the blood in it. And the further process of soaking and salting this flesh, and the porging of main blood vessels to ensure physical purification of mans mind and body when eating “clean” animal flesh.

The Eternals’ love for man is further seen in the commands to not eat the fat-which contain the harmful residue of chemicals and poisons deposited there by the blood, the blood and bacteria laden entrails, the extremities, in which the blood is not removed effectively by Shehitah or the soaking and salting procedures, and the blood, whether in or out of the carcass.

The Eternal calls these potentially dangerous materials, the blood and the fat, His bread.[8]  The Eternal commanded His Priests, “I have given it (the blood) to you (the people) upon the altar to make purification (atonement)* for your bodies (soul, Heb. “nephesh” meaning body).”[9] That’s plain and simple, isn’t it? The Eternal said He gave the blood to the people. Was it for them to eat and drink? Absolutely not. He gave it to them to be poured out on the altar by His Priests; to ensure their bodies and minds against accumulative poisons, parasites, and disease-which are transmitted from animals to man, by the blood.

To further ensure man against these contaminates, The Eternal commanded His Priests to completely destroy by fire outside the camp those animals (wholly) found unfit by inspection after the slaughter.[10] With The Eternal there is no such thing as a partly localized disease. That sin with The Eternal is completely throughout the animal, via the blood.

This system of The Eternals’ that are (for the most part of The Eternals’ Laws concerning animal sacrifice) being administered by the Jews today rejects about 25% of the animals they slaughter. This is the result of The Eternals’ way of inspection. When an animal is found to be diseased or unfit according to The Eternals standards after slaughter, it is completely rejected. Whereas, under U.S. Government regulations only 1% and less of all the animals it inspects is wholly rejected.[11]

Most condemnations made by U.S. Government Meat Inspectors are made in part only. Those parts they consider to be locally diseased are condemned, and the rest of the animal is passed, fit for human consumption.

As we have seen, this is not The Eternals’ method of meat hygiene for mankind. Because mankind will not accept The Eternals’ rules and regulations of animal sacrifice, “Many are weak and sickly, and many have died.” In this country today, The Eternal has provided the way for you to eat animal flesh without the blood and the fat, by obtaining “kosher”* meat that is fresh.

The Eternal has and will continue to provide the way for those who will obey these Laws of animal sacrifice, the way to eat, The Eternals’ hygienic “clean” animal flesh.
