The Meatrix is an animation based on the movie "The Matrix" that highlights critical concerns about mass produced meat. The outbreak of swine flu has been linked to agribusiness and this clip reveals that the overcrowded and brutal conditions under which animals are farmed causes diseases among the animals. This in turn leads agribusiness to add a constant dosage of antibiotics to their feed. This overuse of antibiotics breeds super strains of resistant disease-causing germs.
