Dangerous Meat

A new study has shed even more evidence that meat products are not safe. Researchers at the Translational Genomics Research Institute tested 137 packages of chicken, turkey, and other meat bought at twenty-six grocery stores in five cities across the country. Nearly half of the tested samples were infected with Staphylococcus aureus bacteria, which are known to cause staph infections and a host of other serious illnesses. Moreover, half of the bacteria found in the study were resistant to at least three antibiotics. “Antibiotics are the most important drugs that we have to treat Staph infections; but when Staph are resistant to three, four, five or even nine different antibiotics — like we saw in this study — that leaves physicians few options,” said Lance B. Price, Ph.D., senior author of the study and Director of TGen’s Center for Food Microbiology and Environmental Health.

The typical American diet is full of animal products, including meat of all types, which is obtained from animals raised in factory farms. These intensive confinement systems are the perfect vessels to allow bacteria to mutate due to the irresponsible high amount of antibiotics given to these poor animals. When we cause misery to God’s animals, we are causing misery to ourselves and the rest of Creation.
