(( that very cool, what's E-coli if i may ask?))
Reply
:iconsilverartgirl:
Silverartgirl Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013
Thanks. It is a type of bacteria that can survive in under cooked meats and make people or animals very sick. You might be able to find a better explanation through wikipedia though.

Those brooches are interesting to look at :o
Makes me remember the fact that factory farms feed cows an unnatural diet of corn and how they make the cow bloated with all these growth hormones and antibiotics and how cows pretty much live their whole lives in waste...
These brooches are very well thought out and I liked how you used those materials to represent certain things

If the meat is cooked to the correct temperature the growth hormones and antibiotics will in no way effect the person eating the meat. But these are lovely brooches. I especially love the last one. <3

Growth hormones, antibiotics and feeding an animal food it is not normally capable of consuming is not the proper way treat animals regardless of what effect it has on people. But, thank you for the compliment.

Your opinion, but thanks for sharing, I guess. Clearly, I care along with a whole lot of people who chose to find more ethically and environmentally conscious food sources.

This is amazing! Great job! ^^
Having grown up around cows, I really like seeing this. Even though the cows I used to be around weren't ones for eating.

As someone who despises the means with which most meat is farmed, I find this particularly interesting. Thank you very much for making this.
