The Egg Recall - David Kirby - 08-24-2010

Here are some of the headlines...
"half-billion eggs recalled because of salmonella fears"
"Illnesses are expected to increase, with more than 1,000 people sickened so far"

So do you trust the government to tell you just how bad the situation is on these corporate farms? I bet you're not even remotely being told the truth. And so the big guys muscle their way in and destroy the environment, and the people around lose their livelihoods. Doesn't it sound a lot like the BP spill?

Also notice that threats such as Mad Cow Disease, Swine Flu, salmonella outbreak in the 100s of millions, antibiotic resistant pathogens, and artificially added arsenic only exist in the era of factory farming. And there's those wonderful subsidies again!
