The latest “food” recall announced in the news yesterday involves
143 tons of fresh and frozen meat and poultry products that might be
contaminated with the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes, which can
potentially cause Listeriosis resulting in high fever, headache,
nausea and, in people with depressed immune systems, even death.
When will people learn that crossing the boundaries of other animals,
by eating them and their secretions, is just plain wrong no matter how
one may try to excuse it? There is nothing good about exploiting
nonhumans for whatever reason: it’s bad for humans, bad for the
exploited animals, and bad for the environment.
And since I brought up the environment, consider all the contaminated
run-off from factory farms that ends up polluting the water. Then
there’s all the land used to grow food for farmed animals when that land
could be used to grow crops for the starving people of the world. I
could go on and on about the harm brought about by animal agriculture.
When will people admit that God’s original plan was the best: to eat a
plant-based diet? In other words, go vegan!
Genesis 1: 29: Then God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant
yielding seed that is on the surface of all the earth, and every tree
which has fruit yielding seed; it shall be food for you.”
