What happens when birds eat leftover human food? Brittany A. Roston:
It’s no secret that fast food is unhealthy and that may be true for more than just humans. A new study has found that crows located in urban environments are suffering from high cholesterol as a direct consequence of fast food consumption, mirroring the same health condition observed in many humans who frequently eat this high-fat convenience food.
I wouldn’t feel sad if a few thousand pigeons and crows in our neighborhood died of heart attacks.
