Questionable agricultural practices in China
Among the agricultural practices
found questionable in China such as flooding produce with unapproved
pesticides, pumping livestock with antibiotics banned in the United
States, and using human feces as fertilizer to boost soil
productivity, one of the more concerning ones is the practice of
frequently suspending chickens pens over ponds where seafood is
raised, recycling chicken waste as a food source for seafood.

Agricultural practices in China,
and elsewhere in the world, are putting our health at risk and God’s
animals through immense pain and suffering. While some practices are
more questionable than others, the fact that animals are raised for

hearts and consciences. A transition to a plant-base diet would help
end some of those practices, would help alleviate animal suffering,
and help restore our health and the environment.
