Here’s a story in the New York Times that really makes me lose my appetite when I think about beef.
The article talks about how manure spreads E.coli and cows bodies have a lot of manure. In order to reduce the manure, it is suggested that theyÂ spray Â the hides of cattle with a chemical wash immediately after they are killed drastically reduces the incidence of E. coli 0157:H7.
If you read this article, it’s over the top in disgusting. You have to pity the poor meat processing employee who is doing most of it or overseeing most of it. I have to wonder if they are vegetarians.
As part of its efforts to eradicate E. coli, the meat industry is experimenting with vaccines,Â antibiotics, and feed additives that may reduce the level of E. coli 0157:H7 in cattle intestines.
Yeah, but what is it going to do to people?
