Last week, 35,000 pounds of ground beef sold to Southern California restaurants had been recalled. Why? Because the beef was contaminated with E. Coli. Do you know where E. Coli is commonly found? In POOP! Sometimes in slaughterhouses, these caca doodie germs intermingle with the meat that gets processed and shipped to restaurants and stores for consumption.
E. coli is a potentially deadly germ that can cause bloody diarrhea, dehydration and, in the most severe cases, kidney failure … As if you needed another reason to not eat meat.
Even when it’s veggies being recalled, it all stems from the messy meat industry; these crops get infected with manure run-off from neighboring animal farms.
Bottom line: If you don’t want to be a part of the poopy problem, just don’t eat meat.
Well, I love Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, CSI, Criminal Minds, Doctor Who and comic books (I mean, my profile pic IS Damian Wayne and Bat-Cow...). I'm kind of spazzy and I tend to ramble... I'm also an obsessive perfectionist...heh heh...a science/tech nerd and a vegetarian.
