Beef farmers are giving pharmaceuticals to cows before slaughter and we all might be in danger if we eat beef

Did you know that many beef farmers are giving their cows pharmaceuticals that cause them to get fat before the slaughter so they can get more pounds per carcass and make more money? The drug. Is called "Zilmax" and our very own FDA approved it. You can bet that some of that drug stays in the meat and ends up on your table and ultimately in your body. Could this be part of the cause of so many metabolism problems or other health issues?  We will probably never know for sure as it's hard to study the effects of low levels of chemicals and the effect they have over time on the human body.  It's FDA approved it so it must be safe right?  Wrong! Think about all the recalls that they originally approved.  I don't know about you but I don't want to be an experiment. Another reason for me to eat vegetarian or vegan.
