Factory farming is likely one of the greatest atrocities of our modern-day. Cows, pigs, sheep, lambs, and chickens suffer horribly and needlessly in the name of profit and even in the name of “progress”. Meanwhile, while our government subsidizes animal-based agriculture at the expense of tax payers, the increase in human consumption of meat and dairy has led to extraordinary health problems due to obesity, cholesterol, and excess protein intake resulting from eating those animal products. It doesn’t have to be this way. Factory farming is not necessary. See the video below shown during the recent Grammy Awards.
