We have to protect our bodies, no other can do this but ourselves. The beef recall earlier this month should be a wake up call. The Food and Drug Administration is truly not interested in our individual health, just enough that it doesn’t obstruct “the bottom line” profit, and that there is not a wide epidemic which again would affect the bottom line. In October 2006 the FDA announced they would allow the sale of meat and milk from cloned animals beginning in January 2007. The story died shortly there after, then surfaced again in January ’07 and died again. Now, the big recall coming from Chino Californina. “Downers” were filmed during an undercover investigation of Westland/Hallmark, a slaughterhouse in Chino, CA. Once the story broke, the United States Department of Agriculture/USDA ordered the recall of 143 million pounds of beef. Since Octobor ’06 Westland/Hallmark has processed 37 million pounds of beef for school lunch programs.
So, here we have it, they finally have been caught, but this is not the first news of “downers” being processed as feed for the U.S. population. Peta and the Humane Society of the United States have documented cows that couldn’t walk being dragged into slaughter with chains. Many times “downers” are often suffering from disease or malnutrician or stress. Cows eat a diet of feed often comprised of things that are far from grazing in the grass. One source of their feed is corn. Corn isn’t anything that a cow would naturally graze. Corn, is fed to cows because it produces a more tender meat for the consumer, but in fact it’s sickening the cow. Along with high levels of RBH, a bovine growth horomone to increase the production of milk and a boat load of antibiotics and other drugs since the cows are living too closely and not eating ther natural “liveit” (not die-t.)
You are what you eat. This in turn is grossly affecting our health and the health of our youth. What can you do? Stop it. Don’t buy it. Step away from it. I fully understand the strength it will take to quit, simply because you will have to detox off the heavy antibiotics/drugs in the meat, that you may be addicted to without knowing. But, its possible. We should detox our bodies no matter how and what we eat from vegan to “carnivore.” This is a must.
Do you think the consumption of this meat is affecting our youth? Could the consumption of so much drug filled animals be the cause of so much youth violence? Do you think this is happening with the chickens being sold on the market?
