Poultry processing has been one of the hottest industries in the country.
The industry has grown to nearly $2.5 trillion and employs about 1.5 million people worldwide.
It’s one of those industries that requires people to be very careful about what they put in their bodies.
Here are the top three things you need to know about poultry processing.1.
Poultry Meat Can Cause Serious Disease in HumansAnd there’s no doubt that meat can be dangerous for human health.
People have been dying from it for years, and it’s caused the spread of diseases such as pneumonia, meningitis, and even cancers of the mouth, throat, and lung.
According to a 2013 study, meat can contain harmful substances called nitrates and nitrites that can cause liver, kidney, and heart problems.
The American Cancer Society estimates that about 1 in 6 Americans have liver cancer, and 1 in 4 people with throat cancer.2.
Pesticides Are PoisonousIn 2012, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that the agency would regulate pesticides like Roundup, which was developed to combat weeds in agricultural fields.
The agency said that the use of Roundup, along with the use by farmers of herbicides like glyphosate, a widely used weed killer, had contributed to an increase in adverse health effects for humans and animals.
In 2016, the Environmental Protection Board (EPA), an independent agency, found that glyphosate in the food supply posed a “very real and present danger to human health and the environment.”3.
Some Poultry Products Can Lead to Serious DiseaseIn 2015, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced it would be moving forward with new regulations that would require meat processors to label the amount of antibiotics in their products.
But some poultry processors, like Bello, are arguing that they need to be able to say the same for poultry.
The company has been saying for years that it has a zero-tolerance policy for antibiotic use in poultry.
In 2013, Bello said in a statement that “antibiotics are not allowed in poultry products.”4.
Pests in Poultry Aren’t the Only ProblemWith antibiotic use being the top reason for death in animals, it’s also a concern for the poultry industry.
According in a 2016 report by the National Chicken Council, more than 80 percent of the antibiotic-resistant bacteria that cause foodborne illnesses in the United States come from antibiotic-using birds.
And the FDA has recently said it will be regulating the antibiotic use of birds.
In 2015, a federal judge ruled that poultry processors who fail to follow the rules will be held accountable.
The ruling, however, only applies to poultry processors that meet certain conditions.
