"After the cows were killed, employees would hide the warning signs of cancer by trimming off diseased parts, using a fake stamp of approval or even replacing the heads of sick cows with ones from healthy animals."

"A little more cow cancer anybody?"

I would not be surprised at all if this story is indeed true. The true level of abuse within the factory farming industry is just heartbreaking and a unmovable stain on humanity.

brr! I'll bet that happens a lot! If a cow is pre-cancerous...sure- how would anyone know? butchers are not doctors, they dont give a rat's butt if an animal acts sickly because it is going down a conveyor belt to hell and slaughter. How many minutes to kill and chop up an the butcher is going to be concerned?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING would shock me regarding this entire industry Brian. There's more disgust, greed, cruelty and SHAME to go around the entire world in this regard. I sometimes wish the industry would crash, so people could start over and rethink where they're food is coming from and can make the major changes, that are so desperately needed. The environment & planet are ailing, animals are suffering to the highest degree & we're not being told the truth about much these days. In my "Perfect World," we could stop consuming them & could have beautiful old fashioned farms everywhere--- back growing healthy food from the soil, no GMO's, NO MORE FACTORY FARMS!!~ Thanks for this share my friend!!~~
