About 14 billion hamburgers are consumed each year in the United States alone. The people who eat these hamburgers know little about what is actually in them. Current government regulations, for example, openly allow E. coli-contaminated beef to be used for sale raw and for hamburgers.
This simple fact would shock most consumers if they knew about it. People think that beef should be thrown away or destroyed when E. coli is found in it, but in fact, it is used to make hamburger patties and sold to consumers. This practice is openly approved by official authorities.
But E. coli isn’t the worst thing we can find in our hamburger: the regulations also allow chicken feces to be used as cow feed, which means your beef burger could be made from recycled chicken feed, a recycled material that has passed through cow acorns.
Chicken feed in your burgers?
This question began to be raised about two years ago. People sent accusatory letters full of hate to Natural News, saying things like, “Stop writing nonsense and scaring people!” Few believed that chicken feces were now widely used as livestock feed.
Farmers feed their livestock between 1 million and 2 million tons of chicken feces a year, according to official figures. This cross-species cycle of shit worries critics, who are concerned it could lead to an increased risk of mad cow infection in beef products. So they want to ban the practice of feeding chicken manure to cows.
Believe it or not, McDonald’s has backed those seeking to ban the practice, saying, “We don’t condone feeding bird droppings to cattle.” Apparently, even they don’t want their customers looking at the Big Mac and thinking, “Wow, this is made from chicken shit.” The Consumers Union and other organizations have also entered the fray, petitioning for a ban on the practice.
Now you may be asking how chicken feces can infect cows with a cow infection. And if you haven’t been sick of what you’ve read so far, you’ll definitely be sick when you read the answer to this question. This is because chickens feed on the ground up entrails of other animals such as cows, sheep, and other animals. Cow entrails are used as chicken feed, then they are turned into chicken manure, then fed as cow food. So, a vicious circle is formed – dead cows, sheep and other animals are fed to chickens, and then chicken feed in the form of chicken feces is fed to cows. Some of these cows, in turn, may end up being chicken feed. Do you see what is the problem here?
Do not feed animals to each other
First of all, in the real world, cows are vegetarians. They do not eat any other cows, or chickens, or feed from other animals. Chickens don’t eat cows in the real world. Given a free choice, they live mostly on a diet of insects and weeds.
However, with terrible food production practices in the US, dead cows are fed to chickens and chicken manure is fed to cows. This is how mad cow disease can enter this unnatural food cycle and end up infecting US livestock with prions and those who feed on them. Some say it’s already happened, and it’s only a matter of time before mad cow disease starts showing symptoms in the US population.
On average, it takes about 5 to 7 years after eating a mad cow-infected hamburger for prions to destroy the consumer’s brain. This means that even hamburgers that are well-done and processed to federal safety standards can infect consumers with mad cow disease, causing their brains to turn into mush within 7 years.
The food industry sees no problem in all this. And that’s why this industry deserves what follows: the mass slaughter of cattle and the complete ruin of ranchers the day after the discovery of mad cow disease in cattle herds in the United States. Instead of protecting their cows from slaughter, the US livestock industry prefers to pretend that there is nothing wrong with the practice of feeding chickens carcasses and cows faeces. Is there anything too gross, inhumane or terrifying about the beef industry that is in our stomach? It seems not.
Remember also that the USDA has banned farmers from testing their own livestock for mad cow disease. So instead of letting ranchers protect the safety of their herds, the USDA is pursuing a policy that covers up a blatant threat and pretends not to see the very real risks that exist. When it comes to infectious disease, this is a recipe for disaster.
An ideal springboard for mass infection
Everything is leading to mass infection of the population that eats beef with mad cow disease. And remember, cooking meat doesn’t destroy prions, so if beef gets infected with mad cow disease, it’s only a matter of time before people start showing symptoms. It takes 5-7 years, as I said earlier. This is important to note because it means there could be a five-year gap between the time mad cow disease appears in beef and the time health authorities start noticing the problem. But by then, most of the population will have eaten the contaminated beef, and it will be too late to stop the massive death toll that is sure to follow.
Dying from mad cow disease is not very painless or quick. It’s not beautiful. Your brain cells begin to turn into mush, cognitive function is slowly destroyed, little by little you lose the ability to concentrate, to speech activity, and as a result, all brain functions stop completely. At the risk of wasting away in such a terrifying way, it makes sense to wonder if eating hamburgers is worth it.
Remember: Right now, the practice of feeding chicken feces to cow herds continues. So there is a risk of cow infection spreading with American beef right now. Very little testing is currently done for mad cow disease, meaning the infection can very easily go undetected for years.
Meanwhile, the average hamburger contains meat from 1000 different cows. Do the math. Unless the practice of feeding cattle is radically reformed, eating beef products of any kind – hot dogs, hamburgers, steaks – is like playing Russian roulette with your brain cells.
