In my view, it isn't just the cows that have gone mad: it's the ranchers and meat packers who have lost their minds and, apparently, any sense of decency when it comes to producing a food product that doesn't harm consumers. Didn't it occur to these people that maybe arsenic shouldn't be fed to chickens that are going to be eaten by humans?
You know, the bottom line is that too many corporate meat ranchers, in both the chicken and cattle industries, will do practically anything to their "product" if it helps reduce costs and boost their financial return. The health of the consumer is apparently the very last thing on their minds. They'll add antibiotics, hormones, and poisons... they'll feed chicken litter to the cows, and dead cow parts back to the chickens. And they'll proudly label their product, "100% American beef!"
No thanks, I'll take some tofu instead, thank you. Or, perhaps, some organically produced meat grown by responsible ranchers and farmers who don't shoot up their cows and chickens with chemicals and drugs. Because if it's true that we are what we eat, then most Americans who are eating beef are, technically, walking chemical timebombs. Maybe this is part of the reason we're seeing such skyrocketing cancer rates, do ya think?
