Keeping billions and billions of land animals cooped up in incredibly dense aka "highly efficient" factory farms requires massive amounts of antimicrobial drugs, and even that isn't enough to keep pandemics from spreading in such terrible, unsanitary conditions. We've made a series of mistakes with animal agriculture, and things are really bleak.

The good news is that humans can greatly reduce or even eliminate their consumption of animal products while still meeting their nutritional needs. There is a better future out there.
