Camel! A One in All Creatures

One can imagine, how distinctive and special can be the gift of God. The Bedouin gives name Ata Allah (gift of God), hence considered as precious and matchless. Nevertheless, of its products, camels’ physiology, and behavior is specially designed to survive in harsh conditions of its habitat and sustain the livelihood of its keepers in climate change scenario. Camel has all the characteristics which are otherwise scattered in all the other known and useful animals. The following table shows the importance of camel if compared to other livestock species. Livestock vs camel. Every product of camel is useful, even urine (traditionally use for medicinal conditions like the ear infection, water belly and some kinds of dermatitis) and dung are valuable.Camels’ Manure~From Waste to a Worthwhile Farming Agent

The long bones of camel are very attractive for nomads’ women and use for making jewelry. The camel rearing communities have very firm links with camel culture and consider this special creature as part and parcel of their heritage and culture.

Camel is full of qualities and strange abilities. The author has tried to compile some of the special attributes known to humankind so for. The attributes are grouped in main subjects and given in numeric order.

Potential and Availability of Camel Milk (CM)

  1. Camel is the only livestock species which was originally domesticated for milk; God gifted the camel to Prophet Saleh (PBUH) for milk only, almost 3500 BC.
  2. Camel is the only animal of dry lands which can produce up to 40-liter milk per day (some specimens are recorded) in ordinary grazing conditions. Such high yielding specimens are found in Sub-continent, Arabian Peninsula, Africa and other parts of the dromedary camels’ habitats.
  3. It is the most efficient animal in milk production on per unit feed/water consumption basis, i.e. a cow in rangelands conditions needs 9.1 kg of dry matter feed to produce one liter of milk, while camel produces one liter of milk by consuming only 1.9 kg of dry matter feed in the same conditions.
  4. The lengthy days without water couldn’t depress the camel’s milk quantity or quality. The milk becomes even more watery during the period of water scarcity to fulfill the water requirements of thirsty suckling calves.
  5. Camels’ lactation ranges from 9 to 18 month and produces up to 12,000 liters/lactation.raziq

CM is Natural Pharmacy

  1. A Superfood

A gift of nature and gold of desert, the camel milk (CM) is miraculously proving as a superfood. Because of the appreciable level and unique combination of nutrients (minerals, vitamins, protein, and fatty acids etc.). CM has medicinal properties covering a wide range of ailments like autoimmune diseases, allergies, asthma, rashes, diabetes, liver disorders, rheumatism, inflammatory conditions, piles, urethral irritation, infectious diseases, stress/depression, peptic ulcers and even cancer. The nomads/Bedouins have a long history of experience while healing such diseases with the CM. The manifolds enriched levels of minerals (potassium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, sodium and zinc) than cow milk, making it a real superfood.

2. An Attraction for Mature people

Camel milk is use as the aphrodisiac, especially in the stressful conditions of the dry hot weather. The appealing level of Nanobodies in CM making it very special tonic for making the mood. As well as CM is a nervine tonic and helps in good eyesight. The pastoral people depending on camel milk rarely get weak eyesight.

3. A Beauty Tonic

The content of niacin (Vitamin B3) in camel milk is remarkably higher than in cow milk. Vitamin B3 supports the function of the digestive system, skin, and nerves, and improves circulation making it a beauty and health tonic. Camel milk contains five times more vitamin C compared to cow milk. Vitamin C is anti-infectious and is very important for human health, especially in dry and deserted areas.

4. Full Stop to Diabetes

Camel milk contains insulin-like protein and is therefore used to treat Diabetes mellitus. Such insulin is capsulated in fats molecules which cannot be denatured (does not coagulate easily because of fat coating) in the acidic medium of a stomach. Such property of Camel milk enhances protein absorption.

5. Ensures Super immune system

The wonderful protein of CM (protective amino acids and immunoglobulin) is a booster of the immune system and nutritional advantages for brain development. CM contains 25-30 times as much lactoferrin as cow milk. Lactoferrin is a fairly recently discovered iron-containing protein that has been shown to have antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, analgesic and anti-carcinogenic effects. Therefore, a combination of lactoferrin (bactericidal and iron-binding properties) and lysozyme (an enzyme which catalyzes the destruction of the cell walls of certain bacteria) ensure super immune system. A recent study revealed that camel milk has anti-genotoxic (prevent toxification in gene and prevent mutation) and anti-cytotoxic (prevent toxification in the cell). The Nanobodies play an incredible role in this regard.

6. A Dedication to the children

Children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) responding positively after therapy that included camel milk. The low quantity of beta casein and the lack of beta-lactoglobulin are linked to the hypo-allergic effects of camel milk. Because of the low lactose content, it does not cause lactose intolerance problem in infants. CM has 100 times more D-Lactate as compared to cow milk. D-Lactate is very health promising contrary to L-lactate which is toxic and causes an allergy found in cows’ milk. Camel milk can be the best replacement of infant food after the mother’s breast because of its child-friendly lactose.

7. The Bucket of Healthy Fatty Acids

Camels’ milk fat contains the much higher concentration of long-chained fatty acids (C 14 – C 18) than short-chained fatty acids and is, therefore, healthier. The Omega 3 and Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) are even more important among the other fatty acids. CM have 3 times more Omega 3 and CLA than naturally grazing cows’ milk. Such compounds are attracting young generations to be kept healthy and attractive.

Camel Meat is Special

  1. Camel meat is healthier as they produce carcasses with less fat as well as having fewer levels of cholesterol in fat than other meat animals.
  2. Camel meat is also relatively high in polyunsaturated fatty acid in comparison to beef. This is an important factor in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.
  3. Camel meat is also used for remedial purposes for diseases such as hyperacidity, hypertension, pneumonia and respiratory disease as well as an aphrodisiac.
  4. Camels reach live weights of about 650 kg at 7–8 years of age and produce carcass weights ranging from 125 to 400 kg with dressing-out percentage values from 55% to 70%. Camel carcasses contain about 57% muscle, 26% bone and 17% fat.
  5. Camel lean meat contains about 77% water, 19% protein, 2.8% fat, and 1.2% ash with a small amount of intramuscular fat, which renders it a healthy food for humans.
  6. Camel meat has been described as raspberry red to dark brown in color and the fat of the camel meat is white.
  7. The amino acid and mineral contents of camel meat are often higher than beef, probably due to lower intramuscular fat levels.
  8. Camel meat has been processed into burgers, patties, sausages and shawarma to add value.
  9. Because of its low cholesterol content, Australia’s National Heart Foundation has put camel meat on its list of highly recommended food items. “Camburgers” and “camfurters” are among the products that have been produced by a team of scientists around Prof. Farah at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology.

Camel has Great Ride and Unique Training Ability

  1. The ears are small but have a great power of hearing. Camel can hear and understand the voice of its header from a long distance.
  2. The camels are regarded as the most intelligent animals and can find out their way in the desert when there are no signs of the road.
  3. Camels can travel many days without feed or water. In the kind of terrain, I like to ride in, this is a very important factor.
  4. A traveler can continue the journey without bothering too much about the feed and water. Camel eats each and everything when tired and hungry.
  5. The long muscular legs allow camels to cover great distances, they walk up to 40 km per day with 200 to 300 kg of baggage.
  6. Camel is better as riding animal than the horse. They are quieter and gentler than horses.
  7. Camels seem smarter than horses about getting themselves out of a precarious situation. If a horse gets tangled up in a rope, it may struggle violently and get rope burns (or worse). A tangled up camel will, after briefly testing the bonds, sit quietly and figure out what to do next.
  8. Camels can carry more weight than horses. Also, a well-designed camel saddle has more room to carry whatever extra gear you are packing than a horse saddle has.
  9. Riding a camel is quiet and peaceful (that is, once the camel is well trained enough that it no longer grumbles along the way). Camel’s slipper-like feet make hardly any noise. Without the clip-clop of hooves, you can hear the wind sighing in the brush, the rustle of autumn leaves, a coyote howl in the distance on a moonlight ride.
  10. The camel gets in high spirits to the tune of music and songs and it walks faster in spite of being tired.
  11. The camels are the most disciplined and obedient creatures. They and can be ordered to sit or stand again and again and can walk in a row silently behind the leading man, woman or even a child.
  12. The camel is a unique beast of burden, which is loaded in sitting position and gets up with a jerk of its long neck.
  13. Camels do not need to be shod. The cost of shoeing horses can really add up! Furthermore, camels don’t usually colic like horses do, although they occasionally bloat.
  14. There is a certain pride in riding a well-trained camel. It is a sign of prestige for camel owner to ride and travel on a mehari camel.

Disease Resistance Trait of Camel Making its Products Residue Free 

  1. Camel is resistant to ticks diseases. A load of more than 100 ticks on camel body cannot affect camel health and production.
  2. White Kohi camel is called as Syed by its herders as; having high potential to resist fly bite disease (Trypanosomiasis) The disease register of the camel is quite short (very few fatal diseases are reported in camel).
  3. Camel is resistant to many notorious diseases like foot and mouth disease, mad cow disease (BSE) and Brucellosis etc.
  4. No clinical FMD is reported in camels from any part of the world.
  5. MERS has nothing with the camel as the vector but a tool of misinformation and propaganda.

Camel’s Unique Physiology 

The Browsing Beast

  1. The camel has a large mouth, with 34 sharp teeth. They enable the animal to eat rough thorny bushes without damaging the lining of its mouth.
  2. Camel can eat everything (bark, dates seed, salty mud, and even paper) when there is the scarcity of feed, while in good feeding conditions, it does prefer protein rich diet.
  3. The long flexible neck and legs save it from ground heat and gives an easy approach to tall trees for browsing. Camel can browse at 3.5 m above the ground.
  4. The upper lip of the mouth has a cut in the middle. The flaps of the upper lip help in catching the twigs (thin shoots of the trees and bushes).
  5. The formation of the mouth is such that there are long conical papillae on the inside of the cheeks directed backward and the camel can browse at the thorny plants without any harm.
  6. The canine teeth help the camel to take into grip the twigs. Such kind of teeth is not found in other ruminants.
  7. The soft palate is developed and comes out on one side of the mouth like a red hanging bladder. This happens usually in rutting (breeding) seasons.

Beast of Dryness and Water Economy

  1. Camel has a well-developed power to smell especially water sources. They can smell water 50 miles away by smelling geosmin which is a fragrance produced by streptomytes species growing in the dumped soil.
  2. Under very hot conditions, the camel may drink only every 8-10 days and loose up to 30% of its live body weight through dehydration. Other animals die at 10% live body loss through dehydration.
  3. Camel urinates less than 1 liter of urine per day in hot summer days. In the period of water scarcity, camel urinates a semi-liquid substance like syrup.
  4. Oval shape erythrocytes (instead of round in other animals) expand up to 200% their normal size as camels drink rapidly an amount of 190 liters of water in 10-15 minutes.
  5. Camel can store water in its all body compartments (intracellular, extracellular, blood and digestive tract etc). Every organ has the extraordinary capacity to store water.
  6. They can live without water for 3 days in summer and 7 days in winter. However, there are some examples of this animal remaining without water for 20 to 40 days. After 40 days the camel goes blind due to excessive dehydration.
  7. A camel can vary body temperature up to 6.7 Cº, having a great endurance power to stand the scorching heat. Camel even absorbs heat in the day time by increasing body temperature and dissipates it in the cool night, this way the camel conserves water.
  8. The well-developed hump is full of fat that serves as a store of water and food at the time of starvation. The fat of hump gets dissolved gradually during starvation and collects again at the time the camel gets adequate water and feed.

Prince of Sand and Ship of the Desert

  1. The flat pads of the feet are horny and cushioned and help the camel to walk on the sand without making any sound while the feet of other animals sink into the sand. Due to this quality, the camel has been given the name as the “ship of the desert“.
  2. Camel’s feet are soft and friendly to vegetation. The hooves of the cow or small ruminants are more aggressive to the soil and contribute more often to the degradation of the pastures in a case of overgrazing.
  3. The chest pad helps the animal to take rest on it while sitting on the ground. The rest of the body is saved from the concussion against the ground. There are other pads at the knee and half joint and in front of the joint of thighs. These prevent the limbs from the concussion against the ground.
  4. The spines of all vertebrates of the thoracic region are long & high and make the hump, which is more developed than all other Brahman cattle. Very special designed to be a useful animal in the desert.
  5. Camel has prominent eyes with a wide range of vision. They are protected by an overhanging upper lid with long eyelashes, which protect the eyeballs from powerful rays of the sun.
  6. The upper lip of the mouth has a cut in the middle enable the nostrils to cover to keep out the sand and dust at the time of dust storms.

Masculine Vulnerability-Paradox is Exceptional in Camels

  1. Bull is the main symbol of reproductive efficiency and very active in breeding season (camel is seasonal breeder and usually male shows sign of rut)
  2. The Bull urinates in spurts while standing and urine goes back in between the hind legs and falls on the ground. Its refresh the femoral vein and decrease the heart temperature for water economy. This enables the animal to save itself from slipping in its urine.
  3. Another typical sign is a notably and profuse secretion of the poll glands of the neck, which contains androgen concentration similar to blood
  4.  The soft palate is filled with the air and a big red ball (dulla) is pumped out to attract the female, a very special behavior of camel bull.

Camel is still Hiding from the Eyes of Policy Makers

Besides all its attributes, camel is always considered as the beast of remotes and neglected among the policy makers. It share is never praised and no visible effort has been done for its development. A camel can be a good tool in the global environmental changing scenario and food insecurity situation to provide food and livelihood to million of the people in the drylands of the world. Camels are very much under threat and up to 25 % of the camels are vanished in South and Central Asia, India. This decline is mainly because of the faulty national and regional policies resulting in restriction of historical routes and grazing lands. In recent years due to climate change, many challenging health issues are also causing threats to camels’ survival as this field is very dark and neglected. Only in the year 2010, thousands of camels were dead because of a fatal respiratory disease in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. This fatal disease comes time to time to eliminate numerous camel without being noticed by the health authorities of the concerned regions. Besides of many cries by the author and other friends, no positive response was attracted so far. A silver lining in the clouds is the organization of an advocacy group (Camels4Life) of like-minded people to work for the cause of camels’ keepers and to give them the proper place at a policy level and development projects application. I hereby appeal the national governments and international bodies like FAO, IFAD and other organization to give proper place to a camel in R&D sector of the agriculture.

Such insulin is capsulated in fats molecules which cannot be denatured (does not coagulate easily because of fat coating) in the acidic medium of a stomach. Such property of Camel milk enhances protein absorption.

Conclusion and Vision

In spite of the uniqueness of camel milk, the awareness among the young generation is very superficial. They prefer Redbull, soda water, Coca Cola, and Pepsi like soft drinks which are a burden on the physiological system of the human body and give very temporary freshness and satisfaction. The taurine (synthetic) in the Redbull is an alarming threat to brain health and has been banned in some Scandinavian countries. I would suggest UAE government promote camel milk among young generations and take it as a part of Emiratization initiatives. UAE is the only country at a global level producing bulk quantity of pasteurized milk which is a pure Emirates product. A wide range of camel milk products are available in the market ranging from Icecream to flavoured milk. Camelait!

القاء اللوم على الجمل العربي (ذو السنام الواحد) بخصوص فيروس كورونا – متلازمة الشرق الاوسط التنفسية

م النشر بتاريخ: 2016/08/16 ، بوساطة البروفيسور عبد الرازق كاكر.

هل حقا فيروس الكورونا ( متلازمة الشرق الاوسط التنفسية) ينتقل من خلال الجمل العربي(وحيد السنام)؟

هل متلازمة الشرق الاوسط التنفسية (فيروس الكورونا) ينتقل من الجمال ؟

هذا في الحقيقة سؤال اليوم.

هناك مقالة تم نشرها في صحيفة اخبار محلية حول وجود فايروس الكورونا في الافرازات الانفية للجمال (الابل)، دراسة ابوظبي تربط بين مزارع الجمال (الابل) وانتشار فايروس الكورونا

IMG_1704.jpg

ها هنا استجابة ورد علمي على المقال التي تم نشرها في صحيفة الوطن (ذا ناشيونال نيوز)بتاريخ 8-8-2016

حسب الدراسات العلمية فإن فايروس الكورونا موجود على الاكثر في غالبية جمال افريقيا والشرق الاوسط، لا نعلم لغاية الان حول الجمال(الابل) الجنوب اسيوية وذلك بسبب عدم وجود دراسات عنها لغاية الان

ان فايروس الكورونا (متلازمة الشرق الاوسط التنفسية) تم العثور عليها في الخفافيش والجمال حيث ان كلا الحيوانين يحتضن الفايروس فقط

هناك دراسة صينية كشفت ان الفايروس موجود فقط في الخفافيش، ووفقاً ل برنارد فاي في مزرعته في السعودية ان كل الجمال(الابل) كانت نتائج فحوصاتها ايجابية تثبت وجود فايروس الكورونا فيها ولكن; لم يكن هناك اي دليل على انتقال الفايروس من الجمال(الابل) الى العاملين في المزرعة ولا يوجد اي اشارة الى الاصابة على مدار 3 سنوات الماضية

وافاد العديد من العاملين في مجال الجمال(الابل)-(اصحاب مزارع، مزارعين، عمال وغيرهم) بأنهم لم يلاحظوا اي اصابة من هذا القبيل

(ووفقاً لدراسة بحثية مشهورة تم اجارئها بوسطة الدكتور وارنري (المدير العلمي للمختبر البيطري في دبي

Priv. Doz. Dr. Dr. habil. U. Wernery Scientific Director, CVRL

فانه نادراً ما ينتقل الفايروس من الجمال(الابل) الى الانسان ، هناك فقط احتمالية وفرصة ضئيلة للغاية لؤلائك  الذين هم مرضى جداً ولديهم مناعة ضعيفة، وهي ايضاً (الكورونا) لا تؤثر على صحة الجمال ايضاً

فقط السيلان الانفي يمكن ملاحظته في صغار الابل المولودة حديثاً

الفايروس موجود في مادة السيلان الانفي ويمكن انتقاله فقط من خلال الانف ، ولذلك فان الدراسات التي تم اجراؤها تمت من خلال اخذ مسحة من الانف(من انف الجمال) كمصدر للفايروس

ان منتجات الجمال(الابل)، وخصوصاً حليب الابل ولحومها هي امنة 100% حيث أن هذا الفايروس لا يستطيع البقاء في درجات حرارة اقل من 4 سيليسيوس وفوق 20 سيليسيوس، ايضاً الفايروس لا ينتشر في الحليب واللحم

لا يوجد هناك سبب لإعتبار حليب النوق او لحومها يمكن ان تكون وسيلة للتلوث ، حيث ان الفايروس يفرز عن طريق الجهاز التنفسي

:الجانب الاخر من القصة – المرآة

في الواقع وعندما قرأت مقالات كثيرة متعددة من الصحافة في السنوات الأخيرة، فانه يبدو ان هناك دافع محفز سياسي ومالي لترويع الناس خصوصاً مع اقتراب موسم الحج في السعودية (حيث ملايين الناس يذهبون للحج)، حيث تكمن الفرصة في بييع اللقاحات والمضادات الحيوية

  ! في عالم التجارة والأعمال لا يوجد اي قوانين ابداً

:الرسالة الرئيسية من هذه المقالة

.لا يوجد اي داعي للقلق وتجنب منتجات الجمال (الابل)، وواكبوا على استعمال حليب النوق كما في السابقة

Blaming Dromedary Camel For MERS

Is MERS Really Transmitting by Dromedary Camel?

is Middle East Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV) is really transmitting from Camel? This is the burning question of the day. An article published in a local newspaper regarding the presence of MERS-CoV in camel nasal discharge.Abu Dhabi study links camel farms to spread of Mers virus

Here is the Scientific Response to the 8th August Article in The National
“According to the scientific studies; the MERS-CoV is present in the almost majority of the camels in Africa and the Middle East. We do not know about the South Asian camels yet; as there is no study up to date.
MERS-CoV is found in Bat and camel both as both animals are the reservoirs for it. One Chinese study revealed that it is found in the Bat only. According to Bernard Faye, in his camel farm in KSA, all the camels were MERS-CoV positive but there was no sign of Virus transmission into the workers also no camel showed sign of infection in the 3 years period of time. Many other colleagues (camel owners, farmers, workers and more) told that they have not noticed any such infection.

According to a very reputable research study conducted by Wernery et al (the scientific director of the central veterinary lab of Dubai) Priv. Doz. Dr. Dr. habil. U. Wernery Scientific Director, CVRL, the virus is rarely transmitted from camel to human. Only there is very little chance of transmission for those who are already very weak and sick facing immuno-depression.
It does not affect the camel health either. Only nasal discharge can be noticed in the newborn calves. The virus is found in nasal discharge and transmitted via nasal way,  therefore studies conducted used nasal swab as the source of the virus.

The camel products, especially the milk and meat are 100% safe as this virus has no viability below 4C and above 20C. Also, the virus is not discharging in milk and meat. There is no reason to consider that camel milk or meat could be a way of contamination as the virus is excreted only by the respiratory way.

The Other Side of Mirror

Actually, when I read much more articles from the general press of the last few years. It looks like a political/business motive to terrify the people at the occasion of Islamic ritual of Hajj in Saudi (million of people attend) and to sell vaccine in future. In business, there is no rule at all.

The Main Message: So there are no worries, do not avoid camel products. Please use camel milk as before.

Happy Animals vs The Sad Animals

The Scientists are agreed that the products, especially milk coming from a happy and comfortable animal are far better than the animal in distressed conditions with a sad feeling. Now it is yours’ choice, either you take milk from a happy animal or a sad animal as both types are available. A brief view of both types of farming systems is given in the ensuing lines.

The Happy Animal: Camel farming is very eco-friendly, natural, clean, dry airy, shiny and completely free of any foul smell. So, camel is really a lucky and happy animal living in such a great place. Consuming less water, adapted to high ambient temperatures make this animal even more special and adapted happy animal. The milk produced from a happy animal (here happy animal means camel) is very rich in nutrients than sad animals. The overall environment where animals are raised has an additional effect on the milk quality.

The Happy animals in a Camel Farm

Additionally, the camel’s milk quality is entirely different, especially in the context of micro but essential nutrients. For details, please go to the link below;Camel! A One in All Creatures.

“Camel milk protein is coated with fats, which enhance protein absorption. It passes the acidic stomach undisturbed (does not coagulate easily because of fat coating) and reaches the intestines for absorption”.

The Sad animal: Now look at the sad animal. She is not happy and lives in the slurry and uncomfortable situation. She is in a panic situation. What do you think! Can the milk be the same? No, not at all. The altered hormonal profile because of the stress makes the milk quality unhealthy. It is also a fact that the microorganisms grow better in the products of the stressed animal as stress are the driving force of lower immunity.

Even if she lives in very natural condition her milk is not equal to the milk of camels. Camel is the special gift of nature and the milk is the treasure of health. Let’s live natural health and promote the natural way of life.Cow’s Milk: A Cruel and Unhealthy Product

Lets’ join our efforts to promote camel’s products especially milk. The Camels4Life is struggling for the advocacy of camel and camel’s keepers. Alain Doctor Sees Potential in Camel

“I was first introduced to camels when I was working in Central Australia, a hot, semi-arid region of the country. As I learnt about the valuable contribution camels made to Australia’s development, and the current wild population in the Australian deserts I realized what a valuable, yet wasted, commodity we have here. Dromedary camels do not roam free in other countries as they do in Australia, we are the only country that is yet to recognize their value. Here in Australia, wild camels are said to be in numbers above 300,000.  Most farmers and landholders that have access to wild…
