Worum geht's

Kernaussage 1 von 12

Mass production, on the rise for decades, is harmful to both humans and animals.

Have you ever wondered where the meat in your supermarket comes from? And why are mega packs of meat so cheap? You probably know it’s the result of mass production, but how exactly does that work?

Mass production is a worldwide phenomenon. In the last few decades, there’s been a global shift away from small pastoral farms to large factory-style plants that allow us to produce more meat than ever before.

The food industry has become globalized. People in China now eat chicken breast produced in the United States and American farmers feed their cows on food grown in Brazil.

However, this newly globalized mass production causes a number of problems for both humans and animals.

Workers in these mega plants have to come face to face with some of the cruelest conditions for animals on the planet. They have to learn to mentally shut themselves off just to continue their work. In fact, many of the employees at factory farms become vegetarians.

Factory-farm employees also face physical dangers at work. They’re exposed to high levels of ammonia from the animals’ urine and feces, which often results in a chronic or even incurable cough.

If you have asthma, you can die if you’re exposed to these fumes unprotected for just one hour.

Of course, these plants are also awful for the animals, who don’t have the option to leave like the human workers do. They live out the entirety of their short lives in constant misery.
