    “Today, we only really pay attention to things that kill us quickly and painfully. We don’t consider the things that are actually killing us over a long period of time, or killing us softly.”

    Well put. With that said, not only we getting sick from sick animals but our bodies are resisting today’s medicines more and more due to the amount of antibiotics that have to be pumped into these animals to keep them from getting sick. It’s a double-edged sword.

    Cutting out meat entirely is ideal, but it won’t happen. Like you mentioned, it is a huge business that shows no signs of fixing its problems in the interest of the people.

      Absolutely agree Andrew. Meat is a very big and profitable business and I did not even delve into the antibiotic and hormone usage with these animals. Big meat business is not concerned about fixing the problems that revolve around how animals are raised and processed, it’s a machine that has been chugging along and function for a long time. There are however so many sustainable, healthy farmers who are producing meats that are not only better for our health but also better for the environment. In addition to becoming more healthy while consuming these products we are supporting the real American farmers and our own community.
