Dangerous Meat Products

Although there is a growing awareness about the dangerous additives to meat in the US, besides the overuse of antibiotic and hormones in factory farmed animals, it is the large majority of the population that do not know for example that the poultry industry legally laces its feed with arsenic in order used to promote growth, kill parasites and improve pigmentation of chicken meat. Also, that the pork industry regularly doses pigs with ractopamine, a growth enhancer that the USDA allows even though its own research shows that it stresses pigs out; never mind that The European Union and China ban ractopamine, which may harm people when ingested.

The modern animal agriculture industry is driven by profit and taste, trumping ethics and human health on the way. Most people, if they knew the deep corruption of our food system that allows unimaginable animal suffering, environmental devastation and unnecessary sickness in humans, would surely stop supporting it. The transition to a plant-based diet has profound benefits for all of God’s Creation.
