You know what protects us best from food born illness from animal products?

Abandon and outlaw CAFOs ( Concentrated Animal Farming Operations)!

When you keep animals in torturous conditions, crammed together so they cant even move, not only do they get sick( surprise, surprise), but FEAR and PAIN have an effect on what is in the meat or eggs chemically and is passed on to us- the top of the food chain.

Technology is nice but it is also prone to abuse and overuse and offers scientists and consumers the way out of responsible and humane animal husbandry.

Once we start keeping animals as if they are beings, which they are, we will see a rapid decline of illnesses linked to animal (goods) consumption.

I'd want to see data showing "FEAR and PAIN" in caged animals. (It is quantifiable with functional MRI.) I think it's more likely that, like certain high-class idle people with nothing to do but sit around and gossip (as displayed on certain TV shows), their mental capabilities decline into dullness due to lack of meaningful stimulation. I would surmise that the meat from highly confined chickens is likewise insipid compared to that from free-range examples. (A blind test combined with chemical and epigenetic analyses would be interesting.)

Meat from continuously terrified animals is said to be gamy rather than savory. That's a reason, secondary to ethics, why good hunters try to make their kills quick and merciful.

"A righteous man regards the life of his animal, but the tender mercies of the wicked are cruel." (Proverbs 12:10)

The ability to sterilize egg shells without washing off the protective coating would make it possible to keep them for much longer periods without deterioration. If a dry method to remove visible surface contamination can be combined with this, so much the better.
