Most GMOs are fed to slaughterhouse animals like cows, pigs and chickens. These animals are raised in CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations). These CAFOs are a relatively recent invention designed to produce meat as cheaply as possible. What the designers of CAFOs invented was a torture chamber. We are feeding our children (and ourselves!) meat that was raised under the most horrific conditions imaginable.
These CAFO’s not only torture their inhabitants, they also produce massive amounts of fecal matter pollution. CAFOs are also a business model that is being exported overseas via free-trade agreements. And every time one of us eats CAFO meat, we are paying them to do it!
It’s the trifecta of poison: Poison the environment with GMO crops: Poison and torture CAFO animals by feeding them pesticide laden GMO crops, adding growth hormones and antibiotics, no sun or fresh air: Poison our children by feeding them the cheap meat. Let’s cut down the rainforest while we are at it to grow the GMO soy (as is being done in Brazil). And let’s pay these large corporations to do it every time we eat factory farmed meat.
Make the choice that makes a difference: Eat only humanely raised chicken, beef and pork, and free-range eggs; and cheese made from grass fed cows. We must also demand that the New York City Department of Education (the worlds largest food purchaser after the Pentagon) stop serving poison meat to our children!!
Boycott bad meat!
“The present system of producing food animals in the United States is not sustainable and presents an unprecedented level of risk to public health and damage to the environment, as well as unnecessary harm to the animals we raise as food.”
—Robert Martin, Director of the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production
