If you eat red meat, you've been eating recycled chicken feces, thanks to the FDA and USDA
Finally, USA Today tackles the issue with a pointed article that questions why the FDA hasn''t simply banned the use of dead cows in cattle feed. Let''s face it: mad cow disease only happens when you feed dead cows to live cows. It''s a sickening, inhumane practice, but it makes ranchers money, and so there''s tremendous political pressure to make it happen. If you''ve been eating red meat all this time, hopefully you''re at least a little bit shocked that you''ve been eating meat from cows that were fed chicken litter, and those chickens were fed dead, diseased cows containing spinal cord material that could carry mad cow disease. Knowing this, I''m not sure why any decent human being would eat beef anymore. It''s technically not that different from reaching into your toilet bowl and chowing down on your own feces.

The Food and Drug Administration is under increased pressure to bolster its ban on the use of cattle remains in animal feed after the discovery last month of the first case of mad cow disease in the USA. But poultry litter --- food they drop while eating, along with their excrement, feathers and bedding --- can legally be fed to cattle. Because feeding cattle to cattle is really the only way they get infected, critics of the livestock industry, as well as some within it, have long argued that the best way to deal once and for all with the issue is to totally ban the feeding of all ruminant-derived protein to any living animal, including fish.
