the metal comes in shot, powder, mossy, sheets, lumps, rods etc it is one of the metals used to make the aloys brass & bronze common compounds are ZnO (desitin for baby's bottom, & a paste for our nose to keep from being sun burned from wikipedia: Zinc oxide is used as a white pigment in watercolours or paints, and as an activator in the rubber industry. As an over-the-counter ointment, it is applied as a thin coating on the exposed skin of the face or nose to prevent dehydration of the area of skin. It can protect against sunburn in the summer and windburn in the winter. Applied thinly to a baby's diaper area (perineum) with each diaper change, it can protect against rash. As determined in the Age-Related Eye Disease Study, it is part of an effective treatment for age-related macular degeneration in some cases Zinc chloride is used as a deodorant and can also be used as a wood preservative Zinc sulfide is used in luminescent pigments such as on the hands of clocks and other items that glow in the dark. Zinc methyl (Zn(CH3)2) is used in a number of organic syntheses. Zinc stearate is a lubricative plastic additive. Lotions made of calamine, a mix of Zn-(hydroxy-)carbonates and silicates, are used to treat skin rash. Zinc metal is included in most single tablet over-the-counter daily vitamin and mineral supplements. It is believed to possess anti-oxidant properties, which protect against premature aging of the skin and muscles of the body. In larger amounts, taken as zinc alone in other proprietaries, it is believed by some to speed up the healing process after an injury. Preparations include zinc acetate and zinc gluconate. Zinc gluconate glycine and zinc acetate are also used in throat lozenges or tablets to reduce the duration and the severity of cold symptoms. Zinc lactate is used in toothpaste to prevent malodour. Zinc pyrithione is widely applied in shampoos because of its anti-dandruff function. more about zinc metal from wikipedia: Zinc is used to galvanize steel to prevent corrosion Zinc is used to Parkerize steel to prevent rust and corrosion Zinc is used in alloys such as brass, nickelled silver, typewriter metal, various soldering formulas and German silver Zinc is the primary metal used in making American one cent coins since 1982 Zinc is used in die casting notably in the automobile industry Zinc is used as part of the containers of batteries. The most widespread such use is as the anode in alkaline batteries Zinc is used as the anode or fuel of the zinc-air battery/fuel cell providing the basis of the theorised zinc economy Zinc is used as a sacrificial anode on boats and ships that use cathodic protection to prevent corrosion of metals that are exposed to sea water Zinc is used in contemporary pipe organs as a substitute for the lead/tin alloy in pipes Zinc sheet metal is used in making contemporary zinc bars. Zinc powder is often used as a rocket propellant just by adding sulfur to it. When 70% zinc and 30% sulfur powder are mixed together and ignited, it burns quickly producing a large yellow/green flame. Answered by Jim Asiedu 11 months ago.
Would you feed this to your cat?
Yes it is Merrick. I was at my mom's and was about to eat what looked like a beef stew. She puts her left over dog food in a plastic container and then in the fridge. When I asked her if I could have the rest of the beef stew she said I don't have any what are you talking about. I couldn't believe it was dog...

if I'm not mistaken this is a merrick food? (gosh I need a life if I'm right) yes, I have given it to my cat, he liked merrick for a short bit (but he gets sick of it quick, he is VERY finicky and the only food he hasn't turned down ever yet is fussie cat). no by products, no meal, and meat is the first ingredient. good food :) Answered by Silvana Wong 11 months ago.
At least its a food of the high quality foods- no grains and no animal by products. I would guess it's probably wellnes, merrick or halo - or an other brand of the same quality. I would feed it if my cat's would eat canned cat food :( the only one they eat at all is beneful lol - a dog food. therefore I keep the amount low and they nourish on kibbles. And yes - I tried almost all canned cat foods - before I tried the beneful dog food just as a joke like "Ya don't like canned cat food - what ya think about this wet food for dogs ..." And they left not a single spot within their food bowl when I fed that the first time. Answered by Kendall Briggs 11 months ago.
Yes I probably would feed that to my cats if that's the order the ingredients are in. Sounds like a good brand? Answered by Son Fricke 11 months ago.
It sounds very healthy I think it would be ok for your cat to eat it but then again if its dog food there might be big pieces of meat or whatever in it and the cat would find it hard to swallow and choke... Answered by Julius Tetreau 11 months ago.

Plant tissue culture involves the growing of plant tissue from plant material taken from a source plant.It has been found that plants can reproduce whole plants from fragments of plant material when given a nutrient media capable of supporting growth and appropriate hormone control. The nutrient media used in plant tissue culture is an agar media with macro and micro nutrients dissolved in it.Unlike plants growing from a seed, tissue cultures require a supply of carbon in an organic form such as sugars.They also require amino acids,B vitamins and growth hormones .The constituents of the media will vary with the plant material being cultured. Plant tissue culture can be used to clone plants and produce many identical plants for a particular market.This can be used when a new variety is grown and other methods of cultivation are too slow for the desired market.It can also be used if a stock plant has been infected and material taken from the plant that is not infected.The excised plant material can be grown on and any disease free plants grown on for propagation.Plant tissue culture is also of use in research for biochemists,geniticists,plant breeders and plant pathologists.Plant tissue culture has also proved more efficient in the production of secondary metabolites than the use of the parent plants in various instances and has been used in the commercial production of the napthoquinone pigment Shikonin.Plant tissue caulture has also been used in the production of flavours,sweeteners,natural colourants and pharmaceuticals.With the advent of gene insertion plant cells with gene material inserted can be regenerated using tissue culture to produce a whole new plant. Methods and Materials When taking plant material to grow on using plant tissue culture it is important to get the most appropriate material for the end product you are aiming for.Plant tissue has been shown to be totipotent,but different tissues will require different treatment to produce whole plants if that is the aim.Tissue that is dividing such as at the nodes and leaf axils,leaf peiole material are often used. Sharp cuts will decrease the amount of decaying material present,and decrease the possibility of infection.The use of a sharp scalpel is advised.Forceps are necessary to move the plant material to the growing media.The cutting should take place in a sterile environment and the growing media only exposed when the plant material is placed in it,after which it should be sealed. Forceps Scalpel Disinfectants-for surfaces,implements and plant material. Laminar Flow Cabinet Bunsen burner Containers-petri dishes,small clear plastic containers,glass jars.

The source of the plant material is important as some plant tissue is better suited to tissue culture than others,the ability of plant material to grow and divide in vitro is known as totipotency,but different plant material will need different control to form new plant material.The plant material may form a new embryo,callous tissue or a whole plant depending on how it is looked after. Turmeric (Curcuma longa, also called tumeric or kunyit in some Asian countries) is a spice commonly used in curries and other South Asian cuisine. Its active ingredient is curcumin. It is a significant ingredient in most commercial curry powders. Turmeric is also used to give a yellow color to some prepared mustards, canned chicken broth, and other foods (often as a much cheaper replacement for saffron). It makes a poor fabric dye as it is not very lightfast. Turmeric, a representative of plant genus Curcuma, is a member of the ginger family, Zingiberaceae. In Ayurvedic medicine, turmeric is thought to have many healthful properties. It is taken in some Asian countries as a dietary supplement, which allegedly helps with stomach problems and other ailments. It is popular as a tea in Okinawa, Japan. It is currently being investigated for possible benefits in Alzheimer's disease, cancer and liver disorders. Sangli, a town in the southern part of the Indian state of Maharashtra, is the largest and most important trading centre for turmeric in Asia or perhaps in the entire world Turmeric (coded as E100 when used as a food additive) is used in product systems that are packaged to protect them from sunlight. The oleoresin is used for oil-containing products. The curcumin/polysorbate solution or curcumin powder dissolved in alcohol is used for water containing products. Over-colouring, such as in pickles, relishes and mustard, is sometimes used to compensate for fading. Turmeric has found application in canned beverages, baked products, dairy products, ice cream, yogurts, yellow cakes, biscuits, popcorn-color, sweets, cake icings, cereals, sauces, gelatines, direct compression tablets, etc. In combination with Annatto (E160b) it has been used to colour cheeses, dry mixes, salad dressings, winter butter and margarine. The medicinal properties of the turmeric have for millennia been known to the ancient Indians and have been expounded in the Ayurvedic texts. It is only in recent years that Western scientists have increasingly recognised the medicinal properties of turmeric. According to a 2005 article in the Wall Street Journal titled, "Common Indian Spice Stirs Hope," research activity into curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, is exploding. Two hundred and fifty-six curcumin papers were published in the past year according to a search of the U.S. National Library of Medicine. Supplement sales have increased 35% from 2004, and the U.S. National Institutes of Health has four clinical trials underway to study curcumin treatment for pancreatic cancer, multiple myeloma, Alzheimer's, and colorectal cancer. A 2004 UCLA-Veterans Affairs study involving genetically altered mice suggests that curcumin, the active ingredient in turmeric, might inhibit the accumulation of destructive beta amyloids in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients and also break up existing plaques. "Curcumin has been used for thousands of years as a safe anti-inflammatory in a variety of ailments as part of Indian traditional medicine," Gregory Cole, Professor of medicine and neurology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA said. Recent studies have shown that turmeric can be effective in fighting a number of STDs including chlamydia and gonorrhea. Investigations into the low incidence of colorectal cancer amongst ethnic groups with a large intake of curries compared with the indigenous population have suggested that some active ingredients of turmeric may have anti-cancer properties. Anti-tumoral effects against melanoma cells have been demonstrated . Second-stage trials of a turmeric-based drug as a possible treatment for cancer are currently underway. However, according to recent research results , the component curcumin causes degradation of the human protein p53. p53 is responsible for removing damaged cells that are likely to become tumors, suggesting curcumin could accelerate tumor development. Consuming large doses is not recommended in cases of gallstones, obstructive jaundice, acute bilious colic and toxic liver disorders. Curry Pharmaceuticals, based in North Carolina, is studying the use of a curcumin cream for psoriasis treatment. Another company is already selling a cream based on curcumin called "Psoria-Gold," which shows anecdotal promise of treating the disease. A recent study involving mice has shown that turmeric slows the spread of breast cancer into lungs and other body parts, but also enhances the effect of taxol in reducing metastasis of breast cancer . It is also said that turmeric can strengthen the blood-brain barrier against attacks that result from auto-immune diseases (such as Multiple sclerosis Turmeric is currently used in the formulation of some sun screens. Turmeric paste is used by Indian women to keep them free of superfluous hair. The Government of Thailand is funding a project to extract and isolate tetrahydrocurcuminoids (THC) from turmeric. THCs are colorless compounds that might have antioxidant and skin lightening properties and might be used to treat skin inflammations, making these compounds useful in cosmetics formulations.
