Do you know where your food comes from?
You may picture an idyllic farm where cows graze in green grass and chickens peck food around a red barn, but the reality, according to David Kirby, is quite different.
Most of our meat in America comes from animals born and raised in factories, a fact which Kirby believes is putting America on the bring of a major environmental and public health disaster.
David Kirby, a regular contributor to the Huffington Post since 2005 and TakePart since 2012, has been a professional journalist for 30 years, and was a contracted writer for The New York Times for four of those years. He is also author of Evidence of Harm, a New York Times bestseller, winner of the 2005 Investigative Reporters and Editors (IRE) award for best book, and finalist for the New York Public Library Helen Bernstein Award for Excellence in Journalism, Animal Factory, an acclaimed investigation into the environmental impact of factory and Death at SeaWorld, Shamu and the Dark Side of Killer Whales in Captivity, a subject that continues to make headlines today. He is currently working on a new book, about the steady erosion of constitutional rights in this country.
Kirby’s book makes the case that not only are the conditions for these animals horrific, but the mass amount of waste can lead to many deadly diseases such as
– swine flu
– e coli
– bird flu
– mad cow disease
