The City of Vancouver is going forward with a good example, Their Mayor Gregor Robertson , claims that; They will be proclaiming June 10 to be “Meatless Monday” in honour of a growing global campaign that encourages carnivores to take a break from consuming animal products one day a week for environmental and health reasons.Read more:
Difference between meat consumption in developing and industrial countries is shrinking, it remains high: the average person in a developing country ate 32.3 kg of meat in 2011, while in industrial countries people on average ate 78.9 kg.
I cannot answer how far man”kind” is going to go to MAXIMIZE meat production. This is beyond sick;
Cows are meant to eat grass not corn, how do we “solve” the problem? Do you want to know?
The purpose of this method is to investigate the digestive process of each feed which is supplied to the cow, always with the purpose of obtaining the greatest possible productivity in milk and meat, saving in every possible cost. This is one of many incredible and gruesome experiments which are performed daily, in a society that values non-human animals as objects for use and consumption.
Many people assume that beef and dairy cows spend most of their lives happily grazing in grassy meadows. The reality is that most cattle in the United States spend significant parts of their lives in crowded feedlots with hundreds or thousands of other animals, eating feed that contains large amounts of grain (primarily corn). While cattle on pasture rarely get sick, those confined to feedlots and fed grain are prone to disease and most feedlots operators routinely feed antibiotics to prevent illness and to accelerate growth. This, in turn, increases the risk of antibiotic resistance in humans. In addition, air and water pollution stemming from dust and mountains of feedlots manure, and the many fertilizers and pesticides used in grain production, exact a heavy toll on the environment and the health of farmers, farm workers, and nearby residents.
I can´t understand why people actually want to consume something that is treated this badly.
Neither do I understand this, no respect what so ever, in the end no respect for your own body.
I just get sad.
