cows



Our land our bodies and our cows are all effected by the meet
industry.

Our land and water is getting polluted from animal waste. Our bodies are

getting sick from germs in meat, and the cows are being tortured and are

suffering.

Waste from livestock in the United States amounts to130 times the

waste produced by people. In Central California 1,600 dairies produced
more

waste than a city of 21 million people that’s 5 tons for every person on this

earth, and their is not enough surrounding land to absorb it all. Every time it

rains phosphorous and nitrogen seep into our water ways causing algae and

fungus to spread. One type of algae has ability to ambush its pray by
stunning

it with a disorienting toxin before sucking it’s skin off. this one celled

creature is known for killing a billion fish within North Carolina

in 1995. People who came in connection with this cell often experienced

memory loss and got sores on their skin. In 1982 their were 22 known
species

of harmful dinoflagellates in 1997 their were over 60.

In the United States farm animals received 30 times the antibiotics

than people did’ not to treat infection but to make the animal grow faster on

less feed. some physicians are finding human diseases difficult to treat each

year 60’000 Americans die because their medications didn’t work. Every

year on average 9,000 people die from something they ate. One hamburger

can contain the meat of 100 different cows from 4 different countries. One

infected animal can contaminate 16 tons of beef. In 1995 the annual health

care cost from meat centered diets are between 23.6 and 61.4 billion. A diet

of mostly fruits, vegetables and cereals reduces 40 percent of cancers and in

1996 Americans Cancer Society released similar guidelines including

recommending not to have red meat in your diet. Salmonella originated in

European cows in the late 80s. From cows it spread to other livestock then
to

pets and wild animals and eventually to people. The one effective cure is the

antibiotic fluoroquinolones but even it is loosing it’s effectiveness. Soon the

only way to stop the sickness will be to outlaw factory farms and the

administering antibiotics to farm animals.

Modern cows of today lives her whole live with a swelled and
sensitive

times a day and is kept pregnant nearly all of her short life. A cows life in

  • Muckrakers

  • The Jungle

  • The Jungle3
    The Jungle3 The Jungle By Upton Sinclair "The Jungle" portrays the lower ranks of the industrial world as the scene of a naked struggle for survival. Where workers not only are forced to compete with each other but, if they falter, are hard pressed to keep starvation from their door and a roof over their heads.
