The treatment of animals in factory farms and slaughterhouses is frankly barbaric and more people are learning about it every day. However, the suffering and danger slaughterhouse workers go through goes largely unnoticed.
This excellent interview with Ted Genoways, author of The Chain: Farm, Factory, and the Fate of Our Food, exposes disturbing aspects about this industry such as the insane speed at which animals are slaughtered, the workers’ exposure to disease , the risk of injuries, the violence workers witness and participate in, etc.
The animal agriculture industry is devastating for God’s animals and for humans. People need to realize that every time they buy animal products, they are supporting an industry that doesn’t care about the animals or the workers, our brothers and sisters in Christ, whatsoever. The animal agriculture industry cares about profit.
