Just when you thought the news couldn’t get any stranger regarding the
disturbing state of the agricultural industry, it most certainly has.
In an effort to slash costs and increase profits, livestock corporations have now begun feeding
their cattle super cheap processed foods like cookies, gummy worms,
chocolate, fruit loops and a whole list of candies. Fattening up the
cattle thanks to a large percentage of sugar content and no real
nutritional value, the disease-riddled cattle end up fetching a larger
price for farm owners.
The fruit loops-fed cattle also may end up on your dinner table,
harboring even more dangerous additives than even cattle fed a diet of
corn. Before accounting for the new diet of cookies and candy,
conventionally raised cattle meat contains oftentimes an excessive
amount of antibiotics (now admitted to be harming human health internationally), artificial hormones such as Monsanto’s cloned growth hormone rBGH,
resistant bacteria, genetically modified organisms (from corn) and
other contaminants. Now, however, a few new problematic substances have
entered the equation.
