The Next Pandemic Could Come From an American Factory Farm


Recommended Posts

I agree. It’s is brutal, health hazard and bad for environment by the American mega corporate farms.

Hope is that soya based products are coming in market. People are hooking up with plant based diet giving same taste as meat.

There's some area in the US where there are more pigs than humans! The pig waste is used to fertilize the farms as well. The people in the areas have a very high cancer rate, some families have had several members who have died of cancer. These pig farms are built near the Black neighborhoods.

Can't remember which state or city it was.
