When I was a kid growing up in rural Minnesota, my farmer friends referred to the strong poopy smell coming from cattle and pig farms as “the smell of money.” This was pre-factory farming, though, when that odor was disgusting, but not life-threatening. Now the smells from factory farms are dozens of times worse - choking, ammonia-heavy manure smells that trigger asthma, increases emergency room visits, and renders the homes of the people downwind practically uninhabitable. Imagine how damaging this is to the unfortunate animals in the middle of it.

IT'S OFFICIAL — First Bee Has Just Been Added to Endangered Species List...

REPORT: (link to article in our bio)
It’s official. As tragically revealing as the move might be, the rusty patched bumble bee has now joined the grizzly bear, gray wolf, northern spotted owl, and some 700 others on the endangered species list — the first bee ever to garner those protections in the continental United States.

Once abundant in the grasslands and prairies in 31 states in the East and Midwest, the #RustyPatchedBumbleBee’s population has been decimated by as much as 95 percent by some estimates, and now exists only in isolated pockets in 12 states and the province of Ontario, Canada.

Bumble bees impart an estimated $3.5 billion into the American economy — yet, apparently, the signatories of the petition view the protection of one species as an insufferable encumbrance for humans.

You may have heard the rumours spreading on social media claiming that #Skittles are fed to American cattle. You may not have heard that they have been verified, and defective Skittles are in fact often used to feed animals on #factoryfarms . Those same animals are slaughtered to make your beef, meaning that if you’re a beef eater, you may be inadvertently consuming $sugar.

How the “Skittles Secret” Was Exposed

This subject gained a lot of media attention after hundreds of thousands of Skittles were found all over the Dodge County Highway in Wisconsin, having fallen off the back of a transport truck overnight. The heavy rainfall caused the boxes to break, allowing the Skittles to fall over the road. Pictures posted online show that the Skittles are missing the trademark “S,” although they are clearly the classic Skittles branded candies. Strangely, all of the Skittles found were red.

The local police reported that the Skittles were on their way to feed cattle. Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt stated that a local farmer, whose identity is being withheld, told him that using defective Skittles as cattle feed is common. Mars, the company that produces Skittles, has already confirmed that the candies found on the ground were Skittles and that they were deemed unfit for human consumption. This begs the question: If they “didn’t make the grade for human consumption,” how can they be safe for animals to eat? (They’re not.) Mars’ Corporate Environmental Manager, Linda Kurtz, explained that the company sells discarded candies and other ingredients to processors that then use them to create animal feed. Although she said that Mars doesn’t sell directly to farmers, and its procedures are in line with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulations, it’s clear that Mars was aware that their candies are used to feed animals.

Had an awesome time at @harvardlaw speaking to over 100 people about the plight of farm animals on #factoryfarms and how to join the historic @stopcrueltyma campaign. #stopcrueltyma

The Cornucopia Institute national survey of organic products in the dairy case showcases ethical family farm producers and exposes factory farm producers and brands that threaten to take over organic dairying. More here: http://www.cornucopia.org/2008/01/dairy-report-and-scorecard #Dairy #Scorecard #Report #FactoryFarms #FamilyFarms

If you’ve read any of my work, you know that simple carbs like wheat, corn, candy and GMO foods like processed soy can be detrimental to our health. Controlled animal feeding operations use these exact foods to feed cows and chickens. They’re not good for you, and they’re not good for livestock, either. Cows and chickens prefer to graze on plants grown in pastures.  When they are fed candy, corn or other grains, they suffer from acidosis and other gut issues, and need to be pumped full of antibiotics, vaccines and other medicines to fight infection, parasites and other diseases.

In this video, my friend and colleague Chris Kresser L.Ac​ discusses the benefits of organic and grass-fed meat.

We speak a lot about "voting with your dollars" in regard to choosing #ethical leather instead of supporting #factoryfarms . Here's proof that it really does work - @nordstrom drops Ivanka due to poor sales. Keep being mindful of where you spend your money, team! ✊🏼

imagine your ONLY reason to be born is to given to jigsaw from the "saw& #34; movies. this IS the sick, torturous fate for millions of factory farmed animals each day.
every day you sit at home watching "cute& #34; videos on your phone about smart animals. animals with compassion and understanding.
yet when it comes to your selfish endeavors you turn a blind eye. Just because you do not see it, does not mean it doesn't exist.

MOST RECENT

✌✌✌ What are you paying for?
THIS IS WHY I WENT VEGAN

Eggs = Baby male chickens thrown alive into grinders/garbage bags.

Milk = Mothers milked and kept pregnant until death her babies ripped away so humans can drink the milk and the baby is killed WTF!? Pigs = Are gassed to death by basically burning from the inside out. A chemical reaction. They scream. Some places use a electical prod to force the animals to move (some people are sick and twisted and just torture these animals)

Chickens = So much rapid growth they cant even make their way to water and food (they are babies and they are born like this because of us)
Cows/sheep = Live export basically any slaughterhouse hell involved
Also debeaking, castration, teeth being removed with no pain killers. Starving animals before they are killed. No outdoors, no fresh air, no room to move.
Thats how life begins for animals in factory farms. These babies are raised and killed in horrific ways. Thanks to the egg, meat, and dairy industries.
There is no humane way to take the life of a sentient being who wants to live. Instead they are born into hell. For those paying for it. Thats why I went vegan im not supporting the torture of animals.

Love being an art student! I get to create things that actually mean something like this design example I'm doing on the 269 calf and the protests "Open Your Eyes" #269 #calf #animalrights #activist #israel #protest #openyoureyes #factoryfarming #factoryfarms #vegan #veganism #life #lovelife #artstudent #2dart #2dartist #paint #drawing #artist

Instead of 112 days, it now takes chickens 47 days to reach a slaughter weight of 5 lbs.--the same growth speed as a human weighing 350 lbs by the age of 2. Filled with hormones, salt, water and air, chickens are the most abused factory animal there is. They have zero laws protecting them, which isn't good news because then we eat them after they are all puffed up looking pretty.

Soon it will be a year , I became vegetarian. It's been a journey but I feel great! 🤗 I did not do it for the animals-but they are cute and I love them. I became vegetarian because I am against the human exploitation behind the process. People are forced to not profit from their products so big mega millions corps buy their products and make BIG profits. People are forced to treat animals cruely and people become comfortable with such practices to make ends meet. It's not only with the animal industry but with produce. It's all insane... #itsallacompetition #tysonsucks #monsantosucks #smallfarms #fakefarms #factoryfarms #humanexploitation

When I was a kid growing up in rural Minnesota, my farmer friends referred to the strong poopy smell coming from cattle and pig farms as “the smell of money.” This was pre-factory farming, though, when that odor was disgusting, but not life-threatening. Now the smells from factory farms are dozens of times worse - choking, ammonia-heavy manure smells that trigger asthma, increases emergency room visits, and renders the homes of the people downwind practically uninhabitable. Imagine how damaging this is to the unfortunate animals in the middle of it.

Aquaculture is not the answer to overfishing. It actually puts even more pressure on wild fish stocks.
