In Modern Meat, FRONTLINE takes a close look inside the world of the modern American meat industry and shows how this once simple product has turned into a much more dangerous phenomenon, given the fact that an average American eats at least three hamburgers a week; and with the increase in availability and reduction in prices of meat due to centralization’s, high-tech systems, and efficient procedures, a great risk looms ahead.

This film includes interviews with scientists and industry observers who say that pooling thousands of cows in feedlots makes it easier for bacteria to spread from one animal to another, making it very dangerous for insusceptible and vulnerable humans.

Glenn Morris, a microbiologist at the University of Maryland and a former USDA official concurs this opinion explaining how the feces produced by cows, primarily being bacteria, find it easier to spread in the feedlots.
