Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
What’s in Pork?

A new study by Consumer Reports indicates the appalling reality of food safety. After testing 198 samples of raw grocery store pork loins and ground pork, it found that 69 percent of the samples were contaminated with Yersinia enterocolitica. What is even more troubling is that these bacteria are resistant to most common antibiotics due to the overuse of antibiotics in factory farmed animals.

What can be expected of an industry that seemingly only cares about profit and not the safety of their products? And why should any Christian support an industry that abuses God’s animals and puts their consumers at risk? Christians are called to be mindful, loving and compassionate. Our choics of diet invariably puts our faith and actions through a test. If our choice of diet is not aligned with our values and beliefs then sadly we are not living out the faith of Christ.
