Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Grosser than Pink Slime

Tom Philpott, food and ag blogger for Mother Jones, shed light on some of the very concerning aspects of raising animals for food. He believes that the "pink slime" that worry consumers is not nearly the grossest thing; in fact, he mentions and explains 4 grosser things that consumers need to be aware of: rodents on egg conveyor belts, chickens on sex hormones, flies and cockroaches carrying antibiotic-resistant pathogens from factory farms to surrounding towns and slaughterhouse workers sometimes get weird brain disorders along with their very low wages.

Please visit 4 Things Grosser Than Pink Slime:
Animal-based agriculture cuts corners and engages in short-sighted practices that are ultimately dangerous and unhealthy for all creatures and the environment. It has become increasingly clear that public health is at the bottom of their priorities, and that power and profit are at the very top. Animal agriculture is a threat to all Creation.
