Research is being done with invitro meat, otherwise known as lab grown meat. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) should approve invitro meat for human consumption. Animal cruelty caused by the farming industry and large companies is a huge problem that can be avoided with scientific advancements in lab grown meat. The American population does not understand that most meat that produced in the United States comes from four companies that have the meat market monopoly. These four countries are Tyson, Cargill, JBS, and National Beef (Ostlind).

As humanity becomes more civilized, many of us perceive that eating livestock is morally incorrect, but aren’t we are designed to be an omnivore? Our teeth and digestive system serve the purpose of breaking down animal and plant foods and to bring these important nutrients to every part of the body. Despite the fact that, in 2011, U.S. meat and poultry production reached more than 92.3 billion pounds, the ethic of killing and eating animals as well as the concern of the environmental burden caused by the production of meats is debatable. However, animal based diet is necessary for the human body to function properly and we can choose the meat produced from environmentally sustainable farms to avoid the moral ambiguity. Anatomy and Physiology Factor Some group of people who live on a plant-based diet argues that the human digestive system does not digest animal meat well.
Another reason a person may not eat meat is because of food allergies; where eating meat makes you sick and break you out in hives. These are reason I respect and approve of even though I love meat. However, when the reason you do not eat meat is because you are scared of the way the animal died, I find that to be a problem and is a reason for me not to be sympathetic. Eating meat is healthy, we have been eating meat for thousands of years, our digestive... ... middle of paper ... ...ng it for thousands of years, so why stop now? Just because you have arrived to Penn State does not mean that you must be converted into an herbivore because an animal science class brought you to a slaughtering house and scared you.

If my word dissection is correct, the disease can be broken down to enceph meaning the brain and pathy meaning disease. * Overall, it is a disease that turns the brain into a sponge-like chunk of meat. At first, the only time I have heard of the Mad Cow Disease was in my European History class and it was only a brief sentence that was spoken about it, but boy, what a sentence it was. It seems as though during the 1980s, to save money, Great Britain's ranchers began to feed grounded up dead animals (who have died from disease) to their cattle. Now isn't that disgusting?
