Antibiotic-Resistant Bugs Can Move from Animals To Humans

The meat industry is, in effect, knowingly raising the probability of a health catastrophe in order to make a few more bucks. We've put in place a system that cranks out antibiotic-resistant bacteria, and the people who profit from it are lobbying like crazy to make sure that sanity does not prevail.

Yet another very good reasons to avoid supporting the meat industry.

I'm an omnivore, and I don't think that there is anything wrong with humanely killing animals for food. But I don't think you should torture them, and I'm personally against the creation of superbugs that can kill us all. I'm funny like that.
