Worldwide the number of beef cattle being slaughtered who were contaminated with strains of E. Coli ranged from 2.1 to 70.1% (Clark). Diseases that can infect humans have been manifesting within the beef cattle industry for decade resulting in thousands of deaths for humans. Two of more common infections include E. Coli and Mad Cow Disease both of which are consequences of how cattle are raised and treatment in factory farms. Because of the lack of procedures being followed and standards being upheld, meat becomes contaminated, and humans consume the meat which leads to many deaths with the food industry to blame. E. Coli is a disease that colonizes in the gastrointestinal tract of cows.
The meat industry is one of the largest industries in the world, however, it is one of the leading cause of millions of illnesses and deaths every year. Because inspecting meat for foodborne pathogens is a costly, timely and difficult task, meat companies are willing to barely meet the government 's standards in order to save money. This behavior is unacceptable because millions of people are getting sick every year from tainted meats. The longer the country continues its ignorance about the meat industry, the worse the conditions are going to become. The only way to improve conditions is to have transparency within the industries.
A cow has two main purposes for food companies: milk and beef. Many beef cows live on ranches with very poor living conditions. They do not get necessary access to a veterinarian, they are fed poorly, and changing weather can lead to dehydration and freezing to death. When the cows are ready to be slaughtered, they are transported to a feeding lot where they are fed growth-promoting hormones that are infused in their food. Before they are slaughtered, they take a mechanical blow to the head and knocked unconscious.
The fast food industry abuses the fact of animals not having the same right as humans. Factory farming mistreat many animals such as calves by taking them away from their mothers and leaving them all alone. According to “9 Fact About Factory Farming That Will Break Your Heart” from Huffpost states, “ The calves are also kept in near or total darkness and suffered from forced anemia, for no reason other than to keep their flesh pale and attractive.” This shows that workers didn’t care about calves by leaving them suffering in darkness and not being feed well which forced them to have anemia. If workers at factoring farming cared about these animals they wouldn’t treat them like this. They abuse the animals by kicking them , leave them alone,
They can feel all of the pain being caused to them, and humans don’t know that pain because we don’t have to go through it, we don’t have to feel it. Or see it. If the consumers saw what was happening to these poor animals, they would think twice about buying the products that test on animals. There are many people standing up and fighting against animal testing, people whom all of us look up to. Paul McCartney is one of those people, and he stands up and fights for these poor animals being used to test chemicals.
The meat and dairy industry practices slavery everyday but yet this is something that seems to be over looked by most people. Slavery is when there is an owner, victim, profit, and domination. And is that not what we do to animals everyday. The animals in the meat and dairy industries receive no legal protection. And are constantly being demoralize and raped for a product.
Most companies utilize powerless animals as test subjects. While some believe animal testing should be continued, animal testing is inhumane and should be eliminated because animals cannot protect themselves and the results of such testing is often deadly Animal testing is cruel and deadly. As of 2016, 19,500,000 animals are killed due to testing each year. That’s 1,625,000 animals per month that did not have to die; they did die though due to dangerous and unsafe products. Every day about 53,425 animals die from testing unsafe products.
Zoos can’t provide the amount of space that a animal have in the wild. Meaning if the space does not suit the animal it will stress out causing the zookeeper to have to kill the animal. “ That means tigers and lions have around 18,000 times less space in the zoo then in the wild”.Zoos are becoming more dangerous for animals. 3,000 to 5,000 stressed animals are killed each year in zoos. Do you believe that over 400 animals are killed a month, 13 a day,1 every 2 hour all killed in zoos.
Animal Testing is Inhumane. Multiple species are dying by normal nature happenings, such as being eaten or something like that. However, that 's just the life cycle. But even with this ongoing cycle, the deaths that happen in it don 't get anywhere close to the amount of animals killed by us humans. Each year, 100 million animals, including mice, rats, dogs, frogs, cats, and more, are all killed for scientific usage.
It is inhumane to remove a body part and inflict violent pain on an animal when anesthesia or other pain relief medications are readily available. Humane slaughtering practices, such as the use of stun guns, can alleviate some of the merciless treatment of farm animals, but it is not enough. Animals “...slaughtered for food each year in the United States suffer immensely inside factory farms. And, shockingly these animals have virtually no legal protections…” (What Rights? 6 Ways Farm Animals Lack Legal Protection).
