Industrial Waste Fed to Livestock

Just when you think the meat industry has run out of tricks for cutting corners to save a few coins, you discover another dirty secret that puts both animals and consumers at risk. Farmers are now feeding their livestock industrial waste that is left over from the manufacturing of ethanol fuel! This bio-sludge may go by a fancy name like “distillers' grains”, however, animals that are being forced to eat this waste byproduct have been shown to have increased incidence of dangerous pathogens and illness, such as E Coli. Additionally, the ethanol fermentation process is controlled with the use of a ton of antibiotics and who knows how much of its residue is left over. If you haven't already heard the news, overuse of this medication can lead to “super bugs” and antibiotic resistance in man and beast alike. This means that the antibiotics that used to cure a bacterial pneumonia, for example, no longer work because the bacteria have become resistant to the antibiotic due to ongoing use in healthy livestock (to prophylactically counteract industrial farming practices). The grains are also full of mycotoxins, which have been linked to an imbalance in pigs called Mulberry Heart Disease, which causes them to drop dead suddenly.
