Fast food is harmful. Fast food contains antibiotics. Fast food with antibiotics does not bring benefits — chemicals are used in animals like chicken, beef, and pork. Restaurants serving fast food promised to get rid of chicken full of antibiotics. However, restaurants are stuck with meat and pork, which is full of antibiotics.
You would ask why animals need antibiotics. Antibiotics prevent cows and pigs from diseases, rapid growth, and hormones.
People who use antibiotics weaken their immune systems. The good bacteria in the intestine start to disappear. Can the food not be adequately digested? What happens? Diarrhea and weakness bother us.
There is an escape from this situation. Proper rest, an organic diet, minerals, and probiotics can make a difference.
What happens in farms?
Animals live in crowded conditions. They get food full of antibiotics and hormones. They do not see the sun or breathe polluted air. Individuals who operate this business are concerned about weight gain during shorter periods.
Animals do not get probiotics. Nobody cares about well-being. Of course, highly praised animals such as horses that bring results and money for owners are treated differently.
Unfortunately, farm animals have other destinies: after standing in crowded farms, without fresh air and activity, fed with antibiotics, they travel to the table, nicely pressed between buns and topped with ketchup. Hamburger anyone?
Why do quick-serving restaurants not serve antibiotic-free meat?
I had the same question, but later on, I returned to the same pattern: money. Antibiotic-free meat is expensive. To grow animals and birds without hormones and antibiotics takes time and plenty of expenses. You need to give different food, provide space, let freely roam as chickens do, and offer supplements.
I hate to compare with people, but the comparison is here. Watch people who consistently eat in fast food chains and individuals who prepare food at home, go to farmers’ markets, watch their diet, and exercise.
Do we have any choices?
According to Chicago Tribune reporter Samantha Bomkamp, there are some changes.
Fourteen of the top 25 chain restaurants have taken action on chicken, up from nine a year ago, according to the third annual Chain Reaction report, which grades companies’ policies. But there have been no new commitments to curb the use of antibiotics in beef and pork, the report found.
You see that there is progress with chicken, but unfortunately, not with beef and pork. This article brings an objective perspective to everybody who still thinks fast food can be healthy and beneficial daily.
Our choices are enormous because we can think about what we eat. We can look for information and talk with a knowledgeable health practitioner, asking for advice regarding nutrition and lifestyle.
Why is full of antibiotics food not good?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ” at least 2 million Americans become sick, and 23,000 die yearly from antibiotic-resistant infections.” It is a crime.
Consumers Union stated that seventy percent of antibiotics sold in the U.S. are fed to healthy animals on industrial farms. When people consume food with antibiotics, they lose the ability to fight real diseases because their bodies are familiar with antibiotics. Medications can not fight infections quickly if something happens.
We must think about how we lead our lives. We must check our habits and turn to safe alternatives. Nothing will be hurt if we prepare food at home and bring something of it to a job. We will win from this situation. At once, fast food is okay. However, eating junk food daily creates dangerous situations, as the Chicago Tribune article shows.
