The trouble is that the meat industry in the developed world is very much like any other industry. It is profit driven, rather than being quality
driven. This means that huge volumes of meat pass through processing, with only a very small percentage passing through rigorous quality control.
Because of the fact that animals are rendered down to cuts and slabs, all in the same room, there is no way to avoid contamination of clean meat,
with that which is already infected with CJD, E. Coli, and any one of a thousand or so other nasties. The only way to test for this, would be to do
careful scientific examination of EVERY animal in a herd intended for slaughter, and because the industry wants to make more money than they are
worth, they refuse to spend that money on what I would consider SAFE practice, that is , the TOTAL elimination of risk to the consumer.
What also does not help, is that herd animals are fed massive doses of antibiotics, which means that eventually all the diseases and so on that they
can catch, will become, or are becoming immune to the treatment by degrees, farming superbugs in the livestock, regardless of how poor an idea that
The governments of the do not wish to do ANYTHING about that, because the lobby groups which the meat industry control have far too much power. The
FDA in the US are ruthless when dealing with small farms, back yard vegetable sellers, those who want un pasturised milk. But for generations there
has been under regulation of the meat industry, and its practices. The same applies to all industrialised meat rendering practices everywhere.
It would cost governments too much money to oversee mass market operations properly, and it would cost those companies more than the wastes of
genetic material that sit on thier boards are prepared to spend, to do proper oversight in house. In an ideal situation, animals would be slaughtered
and rendered one at a time, with a full, surgical grade clean down in between each one. This obviously would be a massive drain on the companies and
man power involved.
However, as I have said, the governments do not give a damn about this, because really and honestly, if someone dies of E.Coli from a bad steak, or
CJD from a dodgy burger, made out of sick cows, then thats one less social security number to worry about in the future. What the hell do the
government care about that? Here in Britain, the government dont care about the man in the street enough to protect him from the ills of big banking,
so I doubt they are going to care about a fellow getting struck down by CJD enough to go out mutilating cattle on his behalf, in a clandestine manner.
It makes no sense!
Also, the government being responsible for these mutilations, does not account for the total lack of physical evidence of human movement around the
site where the animals are found in most cases. All the best mutilation discoveries have had a total and utter lack of fibres, footprints (animal or
human) vehicle tracks, or anything else, anywhere near them. In a rural setting that would be next to impossible to achieve, even for a government
with an enourmous budget (which would more than likely be used to stave off another economic collapse, than to fight a possible epidemic that might
solve the population issue for them).
