This is not surprising considering the advancements in modern food technology which is always looking for new food additives and new ways to reduce costs and maximise profits.
Consider the feeding of cattle with chicken droppings, rearing maggots for animal feed, or feeding animals with blood and feather meal. All these are considered as protein sources for the animals reared for our food. For roughage, animals are fed pot scrubbers, telephone books and candy wrappers.
Food animals are routinely fed antibiotics not so much as to prevent or cure animal disease but more as a growth promoter. The usage of antibiotics on farms is higher compared to the usage on humans. Studies have found very high prevalence of antibiotic-resistant bacteria (up to 75%) in both our local and imported meats. Antibiotic-resistant bacteria in humans can kill especially the young, old and weak. Antibiotic resistance also renders antibiotics ineffective, making simple sicknesses difficult to cure or even incurable.
In this book you will find a lot of animal and shocking ingredients in your food, many of which may be offensive to vegetarians, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus.
But even for the non-religious and non-vegetarians, it is an eye-opener to all consumers as to what you are really eating in your food.
