Instead of buying your food from supermarkets and not knowing if you are getting the meat from sick chickens or a thousand cows in just a single beef patty, people
The origin of mad cow disease, or bovine spongiform encephalopathy, is originated in Great Britain in 1986. The farmers first noticed that something was up when there cattle started acting funny. While farming in England is a splendid thing to do, soybeans, which are very good for your cattle, where not easily available to them. Soybeans did not grow very well in England so the farmers had to start buying an animal byproduct that was made with mixed meat and bones of cattle and sheep. This method caused the infected brains, nervous systems, and blood infected cattle to be fed to other cows, filling them with infected meat.
Unfortunately, the media is quick to show infected cows, distempered and shaking in their stalls, without giving sufficient information of the disease’s origin or the preventative measures being taken to halt its spreading. Before consumers restrict beef intake from their diets they should consider their risks. In America, chances of developing BSE is far slimmer than becoming infected with other food-borne illnesses. Although many Americans were recently startled by a reported case of Mad Cow Disease in the United States, they are assured protection from infection by: consumption of selected meats, closely guarded packaging plants, and regulation in beef imports. To fully understand the spreading of BSE, one must first know the diseases origin.
Risks include infertility, immune system problems, accelerated aging, disruption of insulin and cholesterol regulation, gastrointestinal problems and organ damage. Many AAEM physicians have prescribed non-GMO diets for all patients to improve health conditions. Jeffrey M. Smith, an advocate for non-GMO, says scientific research shows the link of GM food to thousands of sick, sterile, and dead livestock; thousands of toxic and allergic reactions in humans; and damage t... ... middle of paper ... ...M crops will escalate the cost of farming, causing many small farmers to potentially loose their businesses. As GMOs continue to affect human life and the environment, it should be mandatory for products to be labeled if they are genetically modified, thus giving consumers the right to make their own decision. With the list of health risks and environmental issues rising, the use of GMOs should be banned as a method to increase food supply and continue a natural approach to eliminate all risks.
Wheat is an abnormally acidic grain that can trigger a great amount of bone loss. The genetic modification wheat has undergone has played a substantial role in its decreasing nutritional value, and as a population it would be in our best interest to decide if the high yield we are forcing it to produce is worth the consequences. Is quantity more important than quality? Wheat and gluten consumption is detrimental to the health of the general population, and if something doesn’t change in the near future more people will be inflicted with diseases and conditions, such as obesity, arthritis, and neurological disorders. ... ... middle of paper ... ...ibute to the American culture.

Finally in conclusion, the topics that were talked in this paper where obesity, pesticides, and animal farms. The obesity crisis is rapidly increasing because of neglecting of a well-balanced meal, making effort to workout, and considered to spurge more on the supermarket than at a cheap fast food restaurant. Next topic was pesticides which workers are developing pesticides poisoning, linked to cancer, and all of the pesticides need to be removed and must develop a safer way of pest control. The last topic was animals farms, animals should be treated respectively and have better staying conditions before they are getting slaughtered.
In till an outbreak of mad cow disease in England, mad cow disease is when something eats infected cow brain. Since they were eating cows and we eat the cows we were getting it to, the disease is always fatal. It was banned in 1997 but there are still some exceptions, we are still allowed to feed cows beef tallow and other animals. Some people worry that this could start mad cow disease again. It may sound like corn fed beef is healthier and the new ... ... middle of paper ... ... around 500,000 dollars in debt.
could not develop without it. Some believe humans consumption of meat is unnatural, so it must be wrong. However, since 1960, there has been evidence of primates in the wild eating meat, and they do it to gain certain advantages over one another. By eating grains directly from the fields and eating them before they are shipped to animal farms to be used as feed, world famine would be reduced greatly. Businesses are using grains as animal feed and because of this we are wasting grain that could be used instead to feed many people.
Resulting contaminated meat to mix in with “healthy” beef, increasing chance of disease. E. Coli also ties in with the use of corn. When feeding corn to factory animals, it has the potential to evolve. Hence evident metamorphosis (mutation) takes place, generating high risk. Majority of companies rinse meat with ammonia hydroxide (leads to food poisoning) to kill bacteria.
