Meat safety

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 products safer, the FDA has approved in August a spray that is supposed 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 the environment. Instead of reducing our meat intake and transition to a 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.
