I ask because it really firms up Nuggets poop, and seems like a natural way to get his greens, so to speak.

Is it odd that I am reading this while eating my lunch and am not bothered in the least?

In fact they make LESS money if you do as kibble and canned foods are "waste systems" for non human quality meats and veggies. The grains in kibble are not the corn and wheat that humans eat, they are by-products of other products, largely cattle feed and HFCS. (Watch "King Corn" on hulu, if you want a partial glimpse into the corn industry.)
The more I understand about our food sources, the more I worry about our future. As I've removed grains from my diet, I've learned so much about how our diets are NOT healthy w/r/t meat sources, fatty acid balance, metallic cofactors, and probiotics. We've really only been consuming highly processed foods for the last 40 years and as our generation ages, we will likely see the results
If you speak with Ph.D students and professors at research institutions you'll understand how BIG industry funds most research and how many researchers' hands are tied. It is a shame the majority of research, for all topics, ISN'T a naive pursuit of truth and information Instead it is fuel for PROFITABLE innovation.
Call me a cynic, but I prefer to acknowledge the pollutive effects that MBAs have brought to the table.
