Eating too much food requires your organs to work harder. … To break down food, the stomach produces hydrochloric acid. If you overeat or eat CAFO-GMO, Heat altered (Pasteurized or Roasted raw nuts, ‘Disease-Causing’ Over-Milling (leaving mostly refined carbs) this acid may back up into the esophagus resulting in heartburn. & other dysfunction -Consuming too much food that is high in CAFO-GMO fat, like pizza,cheeseburgers & other Over Milling, may make you more susceptible to disease & dysfunction – What happens when you overeat | MD Anderson Cancer Center
3 STRIKES against Modern GMO fed Dairy:
1. Contain ‘Dead Bacteria’ from Pasteurization
2. Fed GMO Alfalfa, Soy or Corn – Research is showing forms Alzheimer’s Plaques in the brain!
3. Cortisol from inhumane stressful farming conditions. Making Modern Dairy Putrid with Puss!
** Ban Roasting-of Raw Nuts, Seeds & Ancient Grains – BUT SOAK-to make ‘CLEAN’ – remove the seed lock & lectins.
** Ban Over-Milled Ancient Grains (Plant Protein)-
**Cheap (HIGH PROFIT) Fast ‘Over-Processed ‘DISEASE-CAUSING’ Convenience’ foods.
For example, if you eat a large meal (especially CAFO-GMO processed, heat altered & refined) and your body doesn’t need that much glucose right away, insulin will help your body store it to convert to energy later. Insulin does this by turning the extra food into larger packages of glucose called glycogen. Glycogen is stored in the liver and muscles & other ‘Curious Storage Places” !!
What does the tau protein do to the brain? Brain cells, or neurons, have internal structures known as microtubules that support the cell and its function. … In healthy brain cells, tau protein normally “binds to and stabilizes” the microtubules. Tau behaves differently, however, in Alzheimer’s disease.Sep 5, 2018 Alzheimer’s: How does tau disrupt brain cells? – Medical News Today https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/322991.php

Tau is another substance that builds up in Alzheimer’s disease and damages brain cells essential for learning and memory. Tau buildup is caused by increased activity of enzymes that act on tau called tau kinases, which causes the tau protein to misfold and clump, forming neurofibrillary tangles.Nov 13, 2007

Part I of this Note discusses the current conditions on factory farms, including the suffering endured by the animals, the unsanitary and crowded conditions, the unwholesome contents of animal feed (GMO & not Pasture-fed outdoors), and the drugs regularly administered to the animals.
Part II describes how those conditions pose significant health risks for humans who consume factory-farmed meat and dairy products, including threats of antibiotic resistance, bacterial infections, cancer, heart disease, animal-origin influenza, and mad cow disease. Finally,
Part III proposes six specific on-farm regulations that could drastically reduce such risks and explores whether the proposed regulations could be enacted by the FDA under the existing regulatory scheme.
** Animals involved in large scale food production live in conditions that ‘more closely resemble fetid prisons than farms’. In order to cut costs and maximize efficiency, factory farms intensively confine the animals in unsanitary warehouses, take dangerous shortcuts in the disposal of animal waste, serve cheap, unwholesome GMO feed containing harmful substances, and regularly administer antibiotics and growth hormones to the animals. These conditions under which the animals are raised present serious concerns for both animal welfare and human health.
GMO Corn, Soy, and Additives & GMO Alfalfa
** In nature, cows and other ruminants eat grass from a pasture in the Sunshine (Vitamin D). [FN58] Pigs and chickens in the wild eat mainly grass, worms, and insects (Omega 3 in the seeds, etc) . [FN59] Factory-farmed animals, however, are fed an excessive and unnatural diet consisting mostly of cheap, GMO genetically-modified corn, soy & GMO alfalfa – as well as unsavory additives and byproducts. [FN60] The industry feeds this diet to cattle because it cuts costs, fattens up beef cattle in a shorter period of *417 times, makes the beef more tender, and increases milk production in dairy cattle. [FN61] Most importantly for farmers, since this diet does not require the cattle to be sent outdoors to pasture, it enables efficiency through mass confinement. [FN62] The GMO corn, GMO alfalfa, GMO soy diet are especially unhealthy for cattle since the animals’ digestive systems are specifically designed to digest grass. [FN63] When forced to digest the animal feed served at factory farms, cattle commonly develop painful diseases and health problems, including acidosis and liver abscesses. [FN64] To prevent these conditions, factory farmers must administer a constant supply of chemical additives and antibiotics. [FN65]
Also omnipresent in animal feed are dangerous carcinogens and byproducts more appropriately labeled “waste” than “feed.” For example, it is common practice to sweep up whatever refuse is found on the floor of chicken coops, called “poultry litter,” and feed it to cattle. [FN66] Additionally, numerous inedible things can be found in animal feed, including manure, dirt, rocks, sand, clay, wood, feathers, plastic, and arsenic. [FN67] Plastic pellets are used as a form of roughage to advance the food through the animals’ digestive tracts in order to make up for the lack of sufficient natural fiber in feed. [FN68] Similarly, an antimicrobial that is commonly fed to chickens and turkeys to fight parasites and foster growth contains arsenic, which is known to be carcinogenic to humans. [FN69]
** Animal Parts – Another insidious component of factory-farmed animal feed is the animals themselves. In the 1970s, factory farmers found a cheap way to both increase protein consumption in their cattle, pigs, and poultry and to make use of their dead, dying, disabled or diseased animals: they would simply grind them up and render them into animal feed. [FN70] These rendered parts of other animals, labeled “animal protein products,” often include feathers, hair, skin, hooves, blood, intestines, road kill, dead horses, and even euthanized cats and dogs. [FN71] The inclusion of animal proteins often results in cannibalism; parts of chickens are routinely fed back to chickens and parts of pigs are routinely fed back to pigs. [FN72] While the practice of feeding parts of cattle to other cattle is more tightly regulated, there are still some ways in which factory farmers may legally feed cattle parts back to cattle, such as by feeding them waste that contains poultry feed made with cattle parts. [FN73] Feeding animal proteins to farmed animals is an especially dangerous practice since it increases the risk of mad cow disease in cattle, which leads to an invariably fatal condition in humans who consume diseased beef. [FN74]
** Spread of Disease
The crowded, filthy conditions on factory farms are breeding grounds for bacteria, viruses, and fungi to grow and spread from one animal to another. [FN50] First, the combination of intense confinement, stress, poor nutrition, and the noxious environment of factory farms work together to seriously compromise the animals’ immune systems. [FN51] As the USDA Agricultural Research Service’s studies confirm, “when livestock are unduly stressed, they undergo physiological changes that can increase their chances of catching and spreading diseases.” [FN52] Second, once one animal is sick, the close quarters in which the animals are kept on a factory farm make it extremely easy for the illness to spread to the entire animal population. [FN53] Furthermore, certain *416 illnesses can be spread from the animals to humans, infecting the farm workers or traveling in the air or water. [FN54]
Whereas animals in their natural state do not easily become infected or diseased, factory-farmed animals that live in such tenuous conditions often have such weakened immune systems that they “remain in a state of dying until they’re slaughtered.” [FN55] The air inside animal confinement warehouses can be so polluted with the fumes from waste and chemicals that the exhaust fans “function like the ventilators of terminal patients: If they break down for any length of time, [the animals] start dying.” [FN56] Not surprisingly, approximately ten to fourteen percent of factory-farmed pigs die of illness before they can even reach the usual slaughter age of about six months old. [FN57]
C. Farmed Animal Feed
Another danger for factory-farmed animals is the diet they are fed. In the interest of keeping production costs as low as possible, factory farmers feed their animals cheap diets of corn, soy, and additives that are not fit for consumption, such as animal waste and arsenic. Additionally, most of these naturally herbivorous animals are fed rendered animal parts that they would not eat in nature. The unhealthy and unnatural nature of these diets increases the animals’ risk of illness and disease and requires the administration of a constant supply of preventative antibiotics.

11 FACTS ABOUT ANIMALS AND FACTORY FARMS
Welcome to DoSomething.org, a global movement of millions of young people making positive change, online and off! The 11 facts you want are below, and the sources for the facts are at the very bottom of the page. After you learn something, Do Something! Find out how to take action here.
- A “factory farm” is a large-scale industrial operation that houses thousands of animals raised for food—such as chickens, turkeys, cows, and pigs—and treats them with hormones and antibiotics to prevent disease and maximize their growth and food output.
- Animals are fed corn, wheat and soy that are grown through intensive industrial farming that use large amounts of pesticides, which can remain in their bodies and are passed on to the people who eat them, creating serious health hazards in humans. Ask your school to create Meatless Mondays in the cafeteria to highlight the hazards of overconsumption of meat. Sign up for Meatless Mondays.
- The beaks of chickens, turkeys, and ducks are often removed in factory farms to reduce the excessive feather pecking and cannibalism seen among stressed, overcrowded birds.
- A typical supermarket chicken today contains more than twice the fat, and about a third less protein than 40 years ago.
- 2 in 3 farm animals in the world are now factory farmed.
- Confining so many animals in one place produces much more waste than the surrounding land can handle. As a result, factory farms are associated with various environmental hazards, such as water, land and air pollution.
- The pollution from animal waste causes respiratory problems, skin infections, nausea, depression, and even death for people who live near factory farms.
- Dairy cows typically live to their third lactation before being culled. Naturally, a cow can live for 20 years.
- Hog, chicken and cattle waste has polluted 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states and contaminated groundwater in 17 states.
- Egg-laying hens are sometimes starved for up to 14 days, exposed to changing light patterns and given no water in order to shock their bodies into molting. It’s common for 5% to 10% of hens to die during the forced molting process.
- Worldwide, about 70 billion farm animals are now reared for food each year.
