Video footage of a freshly cut piece of red meat might make you question whether or not you want to eat animal products ever again. The video, which originally went viral on Facebook back in 2020, has resurfaced on Twitter as more people turn to veganism in response to the shocking video footage. The video shows what happens when butchers add salt to freshly cut meat, which helps draw out moisture from the cut but also helps preserve it for a long time.
The video recently appeared on the Twitter account Weird and Terrifying. In the video clip, you will see the piece of meat spasming as it responds to the salt that was added to it by the butcher. The surface of the meat looks like it begins to bubble as it reacts to being slathered with salt. Butchers claim that the spasming is a completely natural thing, but it only happens to the freshest cuts of meat.
However, many people are turned off by the video, claiming that they’d rather eat a vegetarian diet or a vegan diet than deal with spasming animal products that came from the butcher. The reason that the meat spasms like this are because the animal’s nerve endings are “still alive,” and because of that, they are reacting to the salt.
This video sparked a lot of debate on social media, with many people questioning whether it’s ethical to consume animal products in the first place. Some even argued that cutting animals for food was more humane than letting them suffer and die in factory farming.
No matter what your opinion is on eating meat, this footage definitely serves as a reminder that animals are sentient beings that deserve to be treated with respect. We should strive to make sure they have a good life and as little pain as possible before they end up on our plates.
The debate around animal welfare and veganism is likely to continue, but one thing’s for sure: when you finally see what happens behind the scenes, it can change your outlook on what you eat forever.
In the end, it’s important to make an informed decision about eating animal products and to consider the ethical implications of our dietary choices. After all, we all have a responsibility to take care of the planet and its inhabitants.
So when you watch this video, remember: it’s not just about what we eat, but how we treat animals too.
Back in 2015, a slap of meat was recorded pulsating as it hung from a hook in a meat market in the Philippines. An expert from the local animal health department, Lv Suwen, said at the time: “You can rest assured, this piece of meat is very fresh and is from a freshly slaughtered animal. The central nervous system is dead, but the nerve endings in the muscles are still firing, resulting in the jumping because the nerves are not yet dead. This will stop after a short time.”
After the spasming meat went viral, people claimed they were “going vegan.”
