According to The US Environmental Protection Agency, meat is contaminated with risky levels of pesticides more than any plant food. In fact, a large number of chemical pesticides are fat-soluble, which builds up in the animals’ fatty tissue after consuming animal products.

This dangerous chemical buildup is directly passed to human consumers. Animal feed commonly includes hormones, drugs, and antibiotics. These are all accumulated and eventually passed on to anyone who consumes such meat.

Furthermore, Listeria, E. coli, Salmonella, and other bacteria thrive on undercooked and raw red meats, such as pork, lamb, and beef. So make sure to cook your meat thoroughly to avoid tragic or painful disasters.

Animals’ milk and meat are particularly concentrated in and chemicals and pesticides. Other major concerns are antibiotics and hormones, which can be found in different quantities in commercial butter, milk, and cheese.

Also, make sure to completely avoid raw unpasteurized milk since they may contain E. coli, Salmonella, and Listeria. Pasteurization eliminates any nausea-causing bacteria from dairy products.
