MEAT THE CONNECTION: Eating Animals Will Be the Death of Us

There are many discussions about how to stop the spread of the Coronavirus. But the simplest, most cost-effective solution which no-one has yet to admit, is to stop eating animals.

JULIET GELLATLEY: ‘It is time to finally make the connection between animal agriculture and environmental destruction, antibiotic resistance and disease outbreak… The coronavirus (WN-CoV), the viral disease outbreak that has captured headlines, has shut down cities and continues to spread while the rest of the world looks on with horrified abandon.

Coronaviruses are a common type of virus that cause mild illnesses, such as the common cold, but can cause more serious respiratory problems… Where did it come from? How is the virus transmitted and what are the symptoms? Will face masks really keep you safe?…

There are many discussions taking place about how we can prevent and stop the spread of disease, followed by calls from experts for better hygiene, tighter controls at airports, banning the unregulated movement of wild animals and limiting human-animal contact. But the obvious solution, the simplest, most cost-effective solution which no-one has yet to admit, is to stop eating animals.

This coronavirus originated from one of Wuhan’s many live-animal markets. Over 100 different animals are sold here, including wolf pups, civet cats, poultry and snakes. These animals are kept in cramped, dirty conditions, with direct contact with humans. These markets are referred to as ‘wet markets’ – so called because animals are often slaughtered directly in front of customers…

You need only to look at the havoc we have wreaked throughout human history and our damaging relationship with our precious ecosystems to realise that we need systematic change. The issue here isn’t just about how we slaughter animals, it comes down to the fact that we slaughter and eat animals at all… The alarming rise in antibiotic resistant bugs is partly a direct consequence of the inappropriate use of antibiotics in livestock farming.

Due to the cramped, dirty conditions that factory farmed animals live in, many farmers routinely use antibiotics to try to prevent the incredible range of diseases the animals suffer. We must have a societal shift in the way we view animals, the environment and our diets. We must stop eating animals. It is time to finally make the connection between animal agriculture and environmental destruction, antibiotic resistance and disease outbreak’.  SOURCE…
