The food industry no longer breeds animals, it produces them.
Feeding the over 7 billion inhabitants of the Earth requires a large amount of food. Traditional farming methods have become inefficient, so people have started looking for new ways to manufacture food and animal feed increasingly more quickly.
The main way of increasing your breeded animals is to increase the stock, but that requires organizing a large amount of space, which is associated with some financial input. For economic reasons, the world went in a very bad direction and decided to increase the breeding time of the animal by shortening its development time.
The sooner the breeded animal reaches the desired weight, the faster it can be sent to the slaughterhouse, which impacts the breeder. Unfortunately, there is a price to pay for doing this and the rushed development time of pigs or chickens negatively impacts the quality of the meat.
Poultry is popular worldwide, so chicken breeders want chicks to grow up as fast as possible. In order for animals to grow in the blink of an eye, they are fed with special mixes and feeds that make it so that their meat is filled with chemicals and are completely unlike what people ate a quarter of a century ago.
People in Great Britain were concerned about the quality of the chickens they eat, so they asked the appropriate authorities to inspect the sold poultry. Unfortunately, they discovered that up to 60,000 tons of chickens sold in Europe are so-called, “plastic chickens”.
You’ll read more about artificial poultry and where it’s most often found, on the following pages. You’ll also find a video later in the article that shows the chemical meat.
