  1. Point is I think the animals are already toxic before the poop so let's fix the animals first not the poop lol

  2. If you look up cattle manure it's made up of grass and grain. Was this poop corn and soy protein poop and not natural?

  3. 10:36 wasn't that study based on non nature animals and was made on animals fed the wrong things and was ate by people the study is based on ?

  4. Ought not to have watched this before bedtime . . . [shudder] I remember when this happened–I'm in Michigan–and you would have thought more standard processes would have been drastically altered because of this, but, things have just gotten worse: Eat spinach salad, die of E. coli poisoning from CAFO poop! TFP, Mic.

  5. See I hate creating waste, especially plastic but I also hate drinking the water from the tap because it smells like bleach. I buy the large jugs of poland spring and of course recycle, but I am trying to cultivate a zero waste lifestyle…what do I do? ( I don’t want to use the water from the tap at all even if it goes through a brita or whatever)

  6. How many will have to get sick or die due to animal products before the government steps in.
    It always takes massive death before anything is finally done.

  7. Us non vegans are the scum of the world. We don't care about nothing but greed, and having our taste buds satisfied. Vegans care about so much and are prefect in every way. They don't get sick.They remind us non vegans of the evil we are causing every day. But I will never turn vegan because I like to have faults and I don't want to be perfect.

  8. Why can't people just grow a brain and accept the truth, that NOTHING good comes from killing and eating animals…

  9. Just ate a juicy T-bone. Nope, didn't poop and feel great. Once more vegan propaganda spreading bull shit to push their unhealthily diet.

  10. Wasn't there a Pinky & the Brain episode where they try to take over the world by making everyone go to the bathroom at once and overwhelm the septic system? Hmmmmmmmm…

  11. Someone pooping up to 90 times in a day… if they wiped everytime with even the nicest toilet paper it would probably feel like sand paper after about the 30th time, ouch hahahaaa, karma's so grand =P

    I know for definite that it's because of the slaughtering of animals that this happened. Another big one was E Coli that was in the water supply for drinking and the growing of crops. That's another bacteria that came from slaughtered animals that was washed into the drains from the "kill floors" of horrific and disgusting slaughterhouses. The storm drains lead to the lakes and oceans where a lot of usable water comes from and then it got onto all types of food.

    It would be interesting to have more stories like this, nice one.

  12. It really sucks that in a case like this (and contaminated veggies), you can be eating a vegan diet and still have to suffer for the choices of meat eaters.


  14. Mic! This is one of your best videos yet! But call me biased because I work in a Cryptosporidium lab, which exists due to the 1998 Sydney outbreak (Google it). You really did your research on this one and I’m confident to share it with my colleagues. Reservoirs now have turbidity sensors that are usually triggered by heavy rain events. Then we go into overdrive mode to analyse water for parasites. Most crypto occurences here are due to animal poop from kangaroos and cows falling into reservoirs, ducks pooping, and humans contaminating public swimming pools. I’m sure there would be stockyard run-off occuring too. Nice work man, keep it up!

  15. I want to share this video, but it's so specific especially in the beginning that I worry people will just say "yeah. ONE time!!" Can you please make a more in-depth video on how ALL foodborne illness is from animals? that would really helps us make the argument that veganism isnt just for animals, it's also for people!!

  16. That was intense and unfortunate. Living in a developing Asian country, I'm very concerned about what sort of pollution might affect the earth around me. You should see how 85% of place to dine out in my city is chicken based place… 😥

  17. this is how the brain works and why americans for the most part are retarded….the time when 400,000 people died from eating animals, ha. by the way if you drink tap water within city limits thats on you and your ancestry. it aint my fault..did i do dat-

  18. Looks like another national health crisis may be sooner than we think…due to the government shutdown that is limiting food inspection….

  19. Mike, the Atlantic just published a fascinating article on plants, quoting:

    “…after many careful studies, it’s clear that plants are highly intelligent organisms and can send airborne, chemical messages, warning faraway relatives about marauding plant-eaters. Plants can also influence one another through the network of fungi that connects their roots—a so-called wood-wide web. And they can respond to vibrations moving through their tissues: Many release pollen only when insects land on them and buzz at the right frequency, while others create defensive chemicals when they sense the rumbles of chewing insects.” What’s more, parent trees appear to take care of their baby trees by regulating the sunlight and supplying nutrients through the root system.

    So, given this complexity and apparent intelligence and the fact that (e.g.) a banana tree and a chicken both share about 60% of their DNA with that of a human, why do you think it’s morally superior to munch on banana tree embryos (which we euphemistically call “fruit”) but not on the chicken embryos? Is it because plants come from a different kingdom (‘plant’) and speak different language (chemical mostly)?

  20. Hey Mic thanks for the extra video. I was wondering if you could do a talk on the possible negative side effects of flaxseed? I trust your research and if eating flaxseeds has negative consequences I would like to switch to chia seeds for my ALA

  21. Thanks, Mike. Good vid. The pollution from animal ag is staggering.

    How To Opt Out Of Animal Agriculture & Live Plant Based

  22. Here are two resources for people interested in learning more about veganism.

  23. Also, the Black Death was caused by animal agriculture, in Jewish areas they didn't have cows so they didn't get infected, this leads people to believe it was all a Jewish conspiracy and caused a lot of hatred against Jewish people

  24. one in six people get sick to some degree from ecoli every year. half of them from eating produce. now the produce is contaminated by rodents or deer or other animals, cattle and even people- a cilantro outbreak was due to workers shitting in the fields in mexico. you only have a 1 in 20000 chance of getting ecoli from raw eggs. other than that 50% of ecoli cases are caused by greens

  25. This is why in Cities Skylines i don't put water sources close to the industrial zones (and as a vegan i of course don't build stockyards).

  26. Brilliant! Can you make a video about how animal agriculture caused the romaine outbreak?? That would be amazing!

  27. I do believe that bacterial is responsible for deaths here in Florida as people swam in warm waters and it entered there nasal passages up to the brain . Some lived for some time only to die after illness progressed

  28. I really appreciate your videos Mic. I actually had someone say “vegans are dying too so what’s the difference?” Ummmmm drinking and eating animal feces? Idk… sounds like a legit reason to me 🤷🏾‍♀️

  29. Mic can you please please please do a video on food aversions during pregnancy and why that proves we are herbivores??? Most common food aversions are meat, milk, and eggs please do a video

  30. Mike, you rock! So awesome that you are getting your MA in public health. You are a vegan superhero! Thank you for existing and doing what you do man, keep it up. That's a real smh moment when animal ag manages to ruin lettuce… wow. I remember even the whole foods in Chicago was out of lettuce for a couple weeks. Even though it seemed to only be romaine affected, does anyone know if this other shortage I saw across a few stores is likely related? That is, did a bunch of different kinds of lettuce get pulled while they were determining which was contaminated? I kind of missed how it all unraveled.

  31. Thanks for this…scary that our water supplies can be compromised by animal agriculture despite doing what we do as vegans to reduce the environmental impact on the planet!
    On a separate note, did you see that Harvard released their scientific study stating that reduction in meat consumption will reverse the impact of climate change? Hurray! Yet another scientifically based support of what we all already know. It was on the CBS news this past week (1/15/19)…I am hopeful that more an more studies will come out to debunk the consumption of animal products!

  32. Mic,
    You nailed it, animals for food= sickness and death for people.
    Animal waste and/or animal slaughter are the source.
    It took ,what was it, 7000, not 70 studies for the cigarette industry to quit pushing
    Cancer and related illnesses on us, this is no different.

  33. Mike, I am a civil engineer who specializes in sewer system design and construction. I must say I am impressed with your representation and understanding of the facts surrounding this matter. Municipal engineering can be quite the complicated puzzle, but to me, if they hooked up the drain on the kill floor into the storm sewer system, this would almost certainly implicate this corporation and would be a huge environmental blunder. I go to so much trouble to capture PURE rainwater and deliver it safely to downstream receiving bodies that the thought of untreated animal blood and excrement entering the ecosystem HORRIFIES me (and is actually the original reason I went vegan). It is also highly unlikely that human excrement is to blame as there would have needed to be a catastrophic failure of the existing residential sanitary sewer mains and/or treatment facilities or a GIANT influx of humans which would have had to dramatically overwhelm the system. None of the aforementioned scenarios are likely as they would have easily been noticed by municipal maintenance crews. The land use that supports animal product consumption is so wildly irresponsible I truly hope your message of veganism can help curb that. Now that you have presented this case study I am going to go off and research it for myself out of morbid curiosity! Thank you for the accurate and entertaining content!

  34. this should be a huge motivator for a shift away from animal farming. its indisputable. this industry needs to be done with now.
    we are not this stupid, why are people so ignorant?! tastebuds? pathetic.

  35. Grains crops are almost sterile lands! Many square miles of nothing but crops with almost not live! No insect, no animal roaming. That does not “fuel” the ecosystem… how that can be “animal compassion”?

  36. remember that time in 2012 when 12 young girls contracted mad cow disease and they called it a twitching disorder (conversion disorder)? they could walk backwards but not forwards.

  37. Lol, its nice how you do role play.
    Good that these insect meat eaters are getting diseases. That's the only way to get rid of them anyway or they will keep on chewing dead bodies and sucking blood like insects
