The majority of cases of food poisoning are caused by the ingestion
of contaminated animal products. Meat products are linked to several
health problems even when precautions such as cooking meat thoroughly,
washing hands after touching raw meat, etc. are taken.
The lack of sanitation in slaughter houses, where fecal matter
contaminates meat, is of big concern. In an effort to try to make meat

to destroy the bacterium Listeria monocytogenes. Listeria causes 2500
people in the US to fall severely ill and about 500 to die.

Eating a meat-based diet has caused major health problems to
humanity, tremendous suffering to God’s animals and much degradation to

plant-based diet, humanity resorts to science and technology to mitigate
the negative effects of meat-eating.
God’s ideal is that humans consume a plant-based diet, just like in
the Garden of Eden and in the coming Peaceable Kingdom.
