This is yet another problem, and animal rights activists fight against it.
Farmers can now produce food on a larger scale, for a shorter time, by using different machines and industrial-farming techniques. Industrial farming has also made the raising of animals and meat-production incredibly easy and cheap. Animals nowadays are treated like machines that produce dairy, meat or eggs, and are fed corn so they can get fat and big faster.
If you are interested in how cruel animals are treated, just watch some documentary on industrial farming. You will see a huge amount of livestock cramped in small spaces, kept in inhumane ways.
Today, meat is so cheap that you can eat it every day if you wished to do that. However, how healthy is it really? Another thing that industrial farming is doing is creating diseases and pollution in the environment. Industrial farms are pumping antibiotics into the animals so they can keep them alive in the bad conditions they keep them in.
There were cases of the pig flu and the bird flu. Do you remember how many people died of just a small epidemic outbreak? The hormones and heavy metals industrial farmers use to feed their animals go into the fertilizer that the animals produce — and then go into the water. Also, did you know that more than half of the pollution in the world does not come from the automobile industry, or from factories, but from the cows in the U. When I read this fact, I did not know what to think or say.
We eat all of this food happy that we bought it cheap, but we never think about the process behind it. The same process is used for plants as well. To be able to grow plants in not-ideal conditions, farmers need to spray them with different fertilizers and chemicals.
