Former USDA Federal Agent Blogs About Veganism

While investigating a slaughterhouse, special agent Tom Carlson realized the cruelty of the meat industry.

Tom Carlson was a federal agent with the United States Department of Agriculture when he was assigned to investigate a claim that beef was being contaminated with HIV and hepatitis-infected blood while processed at a slaughterhouse, he writes on his wife’s vegan health blog kimberlycarlson.com. Agent Carlson recalls the vivid scene of a large number of cows being slaughtered, and despite his farm upbringing and past hobbies of hunting and fur trapping, the sight was too much to stomach and weighed heavily on his conscience. Carlson stopped eating beef and began his journey toward a more compassionate and healthy lifestyle.
