Billions of animals are killed every year for their flesh, our amusement, and medical testing so that humans can live a better life.(DOL 7) Not only are animals killed, but the life animals live is one we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy. Is the way that we treat animals on the hands of each individual or on the hands of the church? Two books Dominion of Love and Animal Gospel give their insight on who is to be blamed for the way animals are treated. I would like to reflect on the two readings and give my personal insight to the books, however I will begin by summarizing both of the titles beginning with Dominion of Love.
Mad cow disease is a rare but deadly disease that is obtained by cows from contamination feeding or activation of prions. Once this disease spreads to human, the situation gets about ten times worse. The human version of BSE (Mad cow disease) is called vCJD (variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease). This disease destroys the brain and will kill you if you leave it alone. You can get vCJD just by eating beef from a cow that had the disease.
The practice has granted a new life to hopelessly ill patients, modified medicines and made the surgeries fruitfully creative. New alternatives to this practice are in making, but considering the rate at which doctors are fully developing them, the society is still years away from bringing up something that can totally eradicate the traditional animal experimentation. Just like every other scientific practices, animal experimentation, too, becomes a success only after many trials and errors, causing a loss of few innocent animal lives. However, those numbers do not seem as a burning concern when compared to other industries that depend on animals. According to statistics, food animals kill 56 billion animals in the USA which largely differed from the 25 million of animal experimentation (Laws and Regulations).
It was 2 years ago now that I began my vegetarian diet, which also lead me to giving up on animals’ products as well [EGGcept for eggs that are produced by the chickens on my farm, ethical I know!]. Since then I have convinced by sister to be vegetarian, while the rest of my family are finding the transition difficult. Imagine the world without the slaughter of animals for the sole purpose of your taste buds. Impossible.

By following the appeal to patriotism with the question of whether there is "safe level of consumption" of red meat, the writer proposes that the much loved barbecue can be redeemed. This leads to the reader believing they can enjoy their beloved meat at the same time as retaining their health. By using alarming facts and figures Wheate appeals to the fear of readers. With statements such as "kills 100 people each year" the reader is fearful of whether their life will also add to this statistic. This causes them to not only question whether they are increasing their chance at developing cancer but also challenges them to make a change to their

The Animal Bill of Rights reveals both the good and bad aspects about the nature of humanity. For example, the companies in the cosmetic industry practice the Draize Test, which “involves applying a small amount of the substance under study to an animal’s eye or skin for several hours, and then observing whether or not irritation occurs over the following week or two. In most cases the animal subjects—usually albino rabbits bred for the lab—are put to death after the sometimes maiming and often painful test,” as stated the online article “Do Cosmetic Companies Still Test on Live Animals?” by Jim M. Because of the self-interest of people, animals have to undergo this kind of testing. The cruelty shown towards animals reveal the atrocious nature of mankind and the innocence of animals.
(http://www.peta.org/living/beauty/companies-test-on-animals/) Having these things tested on any animal cannot be good for them. Animals are likely to be killed to test the safety of new chemicals and cleaning products. Often animals are force-fed, have chemicals placed in various areas of their bodies, are forced to inhale smoke/toxic fumes to test how poisonous they really are.

Animal Cruelty from Food Companies There is nothing more satisfying to American than sinking their teeth into a Big Mac, Chicken Fries, or bacon. This may be a very disturbing image to many people. If it is really thought about, someone will come to the conclusion that that piece of grilled meat in between a bun was once a living thing no matter what animal it came from. Animals are tortured everyday just so humans can have a nice cut of meat.
Modern Day Consumption of Horse Meat Most Americans today oppose the slaughter and consumption of horses because horses are seen as companionship animals, the horse slaughter industry is especially cruel, dislike for the gamey taste of horse meat, and there are many unsafe chemicals in the meat of horses that were cared for as pets or property. Contrary to widespread opposition, humans have consumed horse meat for thousands of years, whether it be for necessity or enjoyment of it as a delicacy. Around 400 B.C, horses were domesticated for transportation, so the consumption of these animals declined. A pivotal event in the rise of the modern horse slaughter industry in the Western world came about during eighteenth century France, when young
USDA has repeatedly purchased meat from companies that have been involved in major bacterial outbreaks. A handful of children have been sickened because of this. To make matters even worse, the USDA buys the cheapest meat it can get, leaving the meat highly susceptible to having harmful diseases and pieces of bones. Even fast-food restaurants have higher meat standards than the National School Lunch Program ((NSLP)USDA provides the meat for the NSLP). Lastly, chapter nine notifies people that kitchen sinks aren’t as clean as they may think.

With climate change and global warming taking a toll on Earth, the environment is deteriorating: Droughts and heat waves are frequent, natural disasters are intensified, and the temperature continues to rise. Thus, the leading causes of climate change need to be examined and changes need to be executed to salvage the Earth and save it from being slowly uninhabitable. While there are many approaches to the issue, promoting a non-beef diet is the best approach in decreasing carbon dioxide that contributes to climate change and global warming. The production of beef requires significantly more resources than other meat such as chicken and pork.
