Independent farmers are getting squeezed out. They need to make a living. We need biodiversity and strong economies. Not monopolies.
The elderly are also more susceptible to the hazardous emissions coming from factory farms and water contamination.
Children are more susceptible to health implications from neurotoxins emitted by factory farms.
Question #1. Would you be allowed to visit the farm where this food was raised?
Question # 2. How many chemicals, antibiotics, and noxious gases were ingested by the animal that is now your sandwich meat?
Question #3. How many chemicals and synthetic processes were involved in growing and processing the wheat for your bread and vegetables for your salad?
Your assignment is to imagine for one week that your water is contaminated with coliform bacteria and has high levels of nitrates and nitrites--something that has happened to families living next to animal factories due to pits that fail and contaminate ground water. Every time you turn on your faucet, every time you need water, imagine this contamination. This is reality for innocent families - 24/7/365.
