Myths and Facts About Meat and the Coronavirus
What’s the link between meat and the coronavirus?
As the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) grips the world, more and more people are isolating, quarantining, and wondering just how we got here.
We have long warned about the health risks associated with eating meat. After all, raising animals for food in filthy conditions is a breeding ground for diseases that can be transmitted to humans.
PETA has answers to common questions about the link between eating meat and the coronavirus:
Can I get COVID-19 from eating meat?
The World Health Organization says, “To protect yourself, such as when visiting live animal markets, avoid direct contact with animals and surfaces in contact with animals. Ensure good food safety practices at all times. Handle raw meat, milk or animal organs with care to avoid contamination of uncooked foods and avoid consuming raw or undercooked animal products.”
For animals, the environment, and your own health, going vegan is your safest bet. Yes, even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides.
Is it safe to eat meat during the coronavirus outbreak?
You should stay away from animal-derived foods at all times for many reasons!
They include the following:
Cruelty to animals
The meat, egg, and dairy industries’ damage to the planet
The risk of suffering from heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and other ailments
The significant risk of contracting foodborne pathogens such as coli and salmonella
The rampant use of antibiotics in animals reared for food around the world, which contributes to the emergence of superbugs and antibiotic resistance in humans
