Disillusionment sets in

So when I posted about cow doping I was kind of kidding, but James has set me straight:

"Hey Ian,

Just thought you might like to now that cattle doping isn't as new as you
thought it might. My great uncle informs me that a common practise used to be
to feed cattle shredded dried beets and then let them drink as much water as
they could. They would plump up and be judged better in competition. Of
course, this could be very dangerous for the cows..."

That right there is scary. Is there no depths humanity won't sink too?
