Did you know that 70% of antibiotics produced by pharmaceutical companies in the USA are fed to farm animals. NOT BECAUSE THEY ARE SICK, it’s because the animals live in such horrific conditions that if they weren’t pumped full of prophylactic antibiotics, they would get sick and die. Think about that for a minute. This isn’t just an animal rights issue, this is a human health issue because raising animals in horrific conditions and having to resort to using so many antibiotics creates super bugs. One of the biggest threats to the human race is the end of working antibiotics.
Thankfully, THIS IS SOLVABLE. How? We need to be conscious of what we eat and think about the bigger picture. We need to EAT MORE PLANTS! It’s not funny anymore, if humans as a whole don’t make significant changes, things for future generations will not be good. We need to incorporate more plant based meats & meals into our diets, we need to start pushing companies to invest in plant based foods. We need to stop supporting factory farming and above all, we need to stop treating farm animals like property or things...it is NOT OK to raise them in such bad conditions they need antibiotics to survive.
Shoutout to Bruce Friedrich & @richroll for the recent amazing podcast on clean meat. I learned a lot like a tidbit above. Like Rich said at the end of the podcast, I feel like I need to listen to it again but slowed down so I could absorb all the information talked about!
