7 Things About Meat That'll Make You Hungry for Tofu

1. Foodborne Illness

Salmonella, which is found in over 10 percent of all raw chicken breasts sold nationwide, is the cause of more hospitalizations and deaths than any other foodborne illness, sickening more than a million people a year.

2. Pink Slime

This vomit-worthy product is created by treating beef scraps and cow connective tissue with ammonium hydroxide to kill off E. coli and other dangerous pathogens that may be present.

3. Antibiotic-Resistant Superbugs

The practice of cramming animals together on factory farms while pumping them full of antibiotics creates a breeding ground for dangerous antibiotic-resistant bacteria.

4. Fecal Contamination

Consumer Reports tested 458 pounds of store-bought beef and found that all of it was contaminated with fecal matter. Gross.

5. Ractopamine

Factory farmers use a variety of nasty additives on animals, including ractopamine, which is banned in many countries, including China, Russia, and the entire European Union.

6. Meat Glue

To create the illusion of a larger cut of meat, this glue is dusted over two pieces of meat to stick them together, increasing the risk of foodborne illness.

7. Animal Cruelty

Arguably the most repulsive thing about meat is the incredible amount of animal cruelty in every bite. Extreme confinement, mutilations without painkillers, and ruthless slaughter are all the norm on modern farms.
