It’s not just meat that’s being used to build the U.S. economy.
Animal husbandry has been around for hundreds of years, and now that we have the technology to do it, it’s the way we’re going to be using it.
It is, after all, what most people think of when they think of meat.
Animal agriculture has become the most important industry in the world.
And when it comes to food, its a matter of when and not if.
“It’s one of the greatest things that’s happened in human history,” says Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma.
Pollan is the president of the nonprofit, nonpartisan organization Food & Water Watch.
Pollen has studied the food industry for decades, and he says it’s a topic that is ripe for the taking.
In his book, Pollan notes that the livestock industry is the largest single contributor to the U,S.
gross domestic product, a figure that includes food, energy and manufactured goods.
The United States accounts for roughly 20 percent of global agricultural production.
“We’re responsible for roughly 15 percent of the world’s food,” Pollan says.
“And we’re the largest exporter of livestock.
So we’ve got a lot of meat coming in from all over the world.”
That makes the use of animals in food production a big deal.
And it’s not only because of the massive numbers of animals that are being used.
“The meat industry is one of those industries that really needs to be understood,” Pollen says.
But how animals are being raised for meat, and how much of the meat we eat is going to end up in our bodies, is a bigger issue than the number of animals.
Animal breeding and meat production are so heavily regulated that many are not aware of the way they are used.
Pollans research on how the animals are raised for livestock also found that many of the animals being raised are fed antibiotics, antibiotics that are considered harmful to humans.
“In the meat industry, antibiotics are the big thing,” Pollans told the ABC News crew.
Pollns work has uncovered a massive loophole in the way that the meat is produced.
According to a study he co-authored, animals are fed antibiotic-resistant antibiotics for a period of time.
And even though the antibiotics were designed to kill bacteria and prevent infections, they have the ability to make them multiply, and they also make them resistant to antibiotics.
“There’s a massive amount of antibiotic resistance,” Pollens says.
For some animals, it can take up to eight months for the animals to be fed antibiotics.
Pollens research also found a significant increase in antibiotic resistance in cattle, which are fed a diet that is highly antibiotic-friendly.
And he says the increase in resistance can be seen in areas of the country that are already experiencing a food shortage.
“So, when you see those areas of high food availability, then the increase of antibiotic resistant bacteria, they’re going back to areas where we have a shortage,” Polles says.
And that’s happening in places like New Jersey, where there are already high levels of antibiotic use in the state.
Polling out the numbers for the meat and poultry industries, there are a lot more than a few factors that go into making a meat product.
For example, a lot depends on the species.
A beef or chicken raised in the U-M’s dairy system has been fed a lot higher levels of antibiotics.
And the cattle fed that meat have also been given antibiotics that make them more resistant to them.
“For us, we do have some concern about the use and the prevalence of antibiotics in meat, but we do believe that the antibiotic resistance is a more significant concern in meat production than antibiotics themselves,” Pollson says.
He says there’s a lot that goes into the production of meat, including how antibiotics are used, how many animals are involved in the production process, and even how the animal is raised.
And there are also some laws in place that require farmers to use humane practices to ensure the welfare of animals, such as feeding them pasture, a practice that has also been shown to reduce antibiotic use.
The meat industry has been a big driver of the United States’ reliance on animal products.
Polls research also showed that in the United Kingdom, where the meat was grown, a large percentage of the pork produced was fed antibiotics in the first year of production.
And in the Netherlands, where meat production is now growing, there is evidence of antibiotic abuse.
There’s even evidence that some countries are actually reducing antibiotic use, but Pollans says the U.,S.
is still the largest market for animal products in the developed world.
He also notes that while the U and the United S. are the biggest meat exporters in the country, the meat that is being sold in the industrialized world is not being produced as humanely as it could be.
“I think the meat market is going through a very, very rapid growth,” Polls says
