The indiscriminate, insatiable eating of animals have got us into this mess.
MERS, COVID-19, SARS, Mad Cow Disease, Ebola, Swine Flu, Bird Flu and 3 out of 4 new emerging super viruses all have one thing in common.
Every single one was sourced from the overcrowded, confined, traumatized, miserable, filthy, suffering animal hells eating killing and eating animals have spawned.
We are not only talking about the country of China here, we are talking about North America, too, which also have live markets, slaughter farms, and overcrowded factory farms, transport trucks, germ-infested slaughterhouses, stockyards
Yes, our very own United States of America consumer dollars fund nightmarish animal hell torture chambers breeding sickness and disease.
My senses were ill-prepared forty years ago for the first time I stepped into the heart-rending experience of seeing the obvious distress, the palpable sense of panic, the cloying smell of fear their eyes stretched wide with shock fueled by humans meat habits. Sheep, goats, cows, pigs bleated, yipped and in some cases out and out screamed for help. In some cases, there was a stunned silence with heads hanging forward in despair. Other animals looked directly at my face as if realizing I was kind and would normally be rescuing them not silently standing by posing as an agricultural student.
“I have witnessed the animal hell causing viruses and disease, we have the power to stop it. It is simply at the end of our fork”
– Susan Hargreaves, Animal Abuse Investigator Author.
How can we expect good, healthy outcomes derived from eating body parts sourced from animal abuse and terror?
The answer is, we can’t, we cannot expect a different result from the same behavior and practices that got us into this mess in the first place.
What we can expect is more of the same, more disease, more viruses, more heart disease, more sickness. We are even spreading our diseases to other species like Nadia the tiger in the Bronx zoo, was it not bad enough we jailed her? Then to add insult to injury, an employee infected her with a virus created by humans eating other species!
“It boggles my mind how when we have so many diseases that emanate out of that unusual human-animal interface, that we don’t just shut it down. I don’t know what else has to happen to get us to appreciate that”
– Dr. Fauci referring to live animal markets.
“Getting animals off our collective plate would go a long way toward preventing future pandemics, and would improve our health and our environment at the same time”
– Dr. Neil Barnard, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
