It detects and destroys diseased meat before it gets to the buyer. The act reassures the people of sanitary handling and preventing contamination. It terminates any chemical or drug residue left on the meat before packaging. The meat inspection also avoids any type of false labeling on any products. When the Act was passed, the meat packaging industry had to succumb to continuous inspections and investigations by the Agricultural Department which would be paid for by the meat packaging industry.
Conventionally raised cattle have long been fed fats and proteins along with grass and grains; it helps them gain weight more quickly. Unfortunately, much of the fat and protein they’ve been fed in more recent times comes from other animals. This to me is a huge ethical issue; we have gone from letting our cattle naturally eat grass, which they have always done, to changing their diets to something completely different. The FDA still permits cattle to eat feed containing byproducts of pigs, fish, chicken, and horses, among other animals, to promote weight gain. This weight gain is not necessary, it is just desired because cattle can be slaughtered at a younger age and more meat can be produced.
Carter argues to support or enhance the key issues that eating meat is right based on superiority, self-consciousness, reasoning, moral capability, rights, duties, and sentience. Carter shows that the statement that animals have an interest in their own lives and that we should not treat them like things is a cornerstone in many vegetarian theories. But then he questions this argument in that even the smallest insect has an interest in its own life, but you do not see people actively opposing the killing of all living creatures. He also questions the statement that animals can even make this assertion and are not just living out of basic instinct. And, although a creature may try to stay alive, is it doing so out of the fact it doesn't want to die, or the basic instinct that it has to stay alive.
If a doctor wants to use animals for research they have to prove that the harm of the animal equals the benefit it will give the human, also, through legislation all lab animals must be protected form cruelty of mistreatment. In addition, millions of animals are killed each year for food, does this benefit humans to the extent that animal research for life saving cures does? Surely medical research on animals is a more worthy cause of death. This is another reason why people are pro- animal testing. God made man in charge of animals and to rule over them, “rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and every other living creature that moves on the ground” Many Christians do not have an issue with eating animals, as they believe that god made animals for humans to eat.
Some companies have a strong belief that animal testing is essential in order to make sure that consumers are protected during the use of their products. For the fact that we allow this to happen in our world is pathetic, and it all comes down to pure selfishness’, an ugly trait in which human’s possess. How can it be rational to take the life out of something because it can’t show or tell someone if they’re in agony? Over the years there have been numerous amounts of companies that have stood strong on not participating in animal cruelty; realistically it should be the only way. Humans are at fault here; before it’s too late we must realize that each living creature has a choice and should never be taken away by pure
Mammals are also characterized by having hair on the skin and the female having milk-producing mammary glands that are used to nourish the young. Humans consider this nourishing of the young as breast feeding. Mammals are not only considered animals such as mice, rats, dogs, and dolphins, humans are mammals too! Mistreated Animals in the Food Industry From the meat industry's rampant abuse of animals and environmental devastation to the tremendous health benefits of a vegan diet to helping end world hunger and deplorable working conditions in slaughterhouses, there are countless reasons why more and more people are leaving meat off their plates. Some choose not
My proposal is “Kill’em all”. I mean kill our entire inferior animal friends who have been living in our precious land. Kill them, and we have no one to protect. But “Kill’em all” doesn’t me all, save the ones that provide us food like goats, cattle. Kill all the useless ones.
Some animals are pulled out of their habitat and are used as research; yet some humans think they do not deserve any rights because they are animals. Throughout this paper I will portray examples of possibilities that can be used to change the life of an animal in the food industry, as a pet in homes and as research in laboratories; we need to help them have a better life even if we are going to use them as food, a companion and even as a science experiment, they have the right to enjoy life even if it’s for a moment. Factory farms today, thousands of animals are crammed into filthy, windowless sheds and confined to wire cages, gestation crates, barren dirt lots, and other cruel confinement systems. The factory farming industry strives to maximize output while minimizing costs of course at the animals' expense. The giant corporations that run most factory farms have found that they can make more money by cramming animals into tiny spaces, even though many of the animals get sick and some die.
Ethics on use of animals for research The early Greek philosophers valued reason above all else, and ascribed little moral value to animals and even to other humans that did not possess this attribute. While this viewpoint might be viewed as extreme, from a biological perspective this might be seen as competition. Using the survival advantage given to us by our capacity for reason is no less moral or ethical than another animal using its adaptations to survive. However, it should be obvious that by allowing unrestricted human exploitation of animals, there is great potential for extirpation of species. Thus, we utilize animals for food and clothing; we keep them as pets or as livestock; we plant our crops, harvest wild plant products, and build our cities and highways where animals might otherwise have lived, but we do so with restrictions on our
I feel that "extinction" is not something that has to happen, but happens because humans do not take care of the natural world, the way they should. Many extinctions, including birds and other living creatures, can simply be avoided if humanity put it in their best interest to change the way we run our ecosystem, considering how much these beautiful creatures help us maintain this earth. One of the greatest threats a bird endures is habitat loss. Birds from all regions such as forests, wetlands, grasslands, mountains, etc are losing their homes and resulting in their extinction. Another threat as previously mentioned is from humankind.
