We pay them to get rich, they make us pay to get sick
The animal foods industry is the only part that gets the benefit of this system because while they get all the favors and subsidies from the government, we are the ones who must pay all the prices and the consequences.
Through taxes we pay the health care cost which mostly caused by sickness comes from eating animal foods. We also pay the environmental cost for the damages caused by the farm factory; the deforestation, manure and waste management, and the bycatch as well as the increasing number of dead zones in the ocean caused by the unsustainable fishing industry.
World hunger is one of the social consequences of the animal foods industry. 6 pounds of plant protein are used to feed animals for each pound of animal protein. There are more cereals that go for livestock than to feed people. Everyone is eventually paying the consequences and all the external costs of animal foods even if they are vegans or don’t eat meat.
