The Organic Egg Fight: The organic eggs in your grocery store are supposed to come from chickens that have year-round access to the outdoors. That's according to long-standing organic regulations. But a huge battle has erupted over what "access to the outdoors" actually means. And it's now led to a lawsuit: The Organic Trade Association, which represents most organic food companies, is suing the government, demanding that it implement new rules that require organic egg producers to give their chickens more room to roam. Half of "organic" eggs in the U.S. come from large factory farm egg producers such as Herbruck's Poultry Ranch in Saranac, Michigan. They believe that "access to the outdoors" means that the chickens get to live in houses with screened-in porches.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the Obama administration gave final approval to a new regulation that — among many other things — requires organic egg producers to provide real outdoor space — roughly 2 square feet — for each egg-laying hen. Porches don't count. But corporate Republicans and Democrats in Congress are taking the side of the dirty factory farms. And when the Trump administration took office, it put the new standard on hold and suggested that it might even be withdrawn. The Organic Trade Organization now is going to court, demanding that the new government step aside and let the new rules take effect.

According to a letter signed by 200 experts addressed to @who, #factoryfarms and industrial #livestock operations are putting Earth’s #climate at risk. Without a reduction in #meat consumption and change in production, livestock operations may use up a significant of the world’s #carbonbudget.

#YouAreWhatYouEat

Animals raised for meat in factory farms are often genetically manipulated to grow unnaturally large and hence more profitable for the agricultural industry.

Chickens slaughtered in the United States, for example, are bred to weigh a staggering nine pounds today compared to just two pounds in the 1950s. They are bred to grow so fast, in fact, that debilitating deformities are common.

According to a study by the Center for Food Safety, over 450 animal drugs, drug combinations, and other feed additives are administered to animals to achieve increased growth and keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them. Indeed, 99.9 percent of chicken and 78 percent of beef consumed in the United States come from overcrowded #factoryfarms. Since these factory farms are filthy and packed tightly with animals, disease and infection run rampant.

To make matters worse, the Center for Food Safety found that drugs posing “significant threats” to humans, animals, and the environment are administered to animals. Shockingly, these have been approved by the #FDA and are on the market. Of the drugs studied, 12 are banned for use as animal drugs in other countries, but not in the United States.

#Ractopamine is used to increase an animal’s muscle mass and overall weight before slaughter, but the risks posed to consumers and the environment are not fully known. As for animals, ractopamine has resulted in more reports of sickened or dead pigs than any other livestock drug. It also increases lameness, broken limbs, and immobility. Cardiovascular stress, musculoskeletal tremors, increased aggression, hyperactivity, acute toxicity, and genotoxicity are just a few of the behavioral changes and other problems linked to ractopamine.
Despite mounting evidence of health risks from arsenic exposure, from 1940 to 2016 the FDA approved arsenic-based compounds, or arsenicals, for use in animal feed for growth promotion, improved feed efficiency, and desirable pigmentation. Consequently, cumulative exposure to arsenic greatly increased among Americans, with documented cases of arsenic residues in chicken products.

Welcome to the first edition of Awareness Wednesday. Each Wednesday we'll be uncovering some of the crap that goes on in our food system, pun intended. Did you know that chicken farms like these exist in Oklahoma - as well as almost every other state in America? Did you know that these farms can actually label their eggs in grocery stores as 'organic' and 'free range'? And did you know that over 95% of the restaurants you eat at every day serve you these eggs?? Farm to table, huh? Geese. If you ask us, this is absolutely ridiculous! Wake up folks. Ignorance is not bliss, it's called Cancer.

Meet Ruby. 💕This last week, we received a message regarding a young chick found covered in feces, sick and huddled, unable to move in a dark, filthy corner of a chicken barn. She was brought to us and assessed by our veterinarian who found her to be suffering from dehydration, a intestinal infection and both her leg joints swollen from infection. Once we gave her a warm bath and blow dry and treated her dehydration, we started her on a strong antibiotic and anti inflammatory pain medication. Hopefully she'll begin to show signs of improvement soon. Ruby is one of millions of baby chicks who suffer every day on factory farms, suffering from the same health issues and never receive veterinary care. She's one of the lucky ones. If you'd like to donate towards Ruby's care fund please click on our link http://wildwoodfarmsanctuary.org/donate/ We'll post updates of her progress. Thank you. #wildwoodfarmsanctuary #chickrescue #factoryfarms #factoryfarmsarecruel #govegan #ruby #luckyruby

Grace the lamb was rescued by @edgarsmission in June 2015. She was born to a farm sheep and, as such, was immediately separated from her mother.

Dirty, covered in urine and excrement, with her umbilical cord still dripping blood, Grace was brought to the Edgar’s Mission’s vet clinic by a wonderful person who saved her life. Objectively, the chances of the lamb surviving after being taken away from the mother so quickly were very low. But Grace, although still shaky on her legs and greatly confused after the loss of her mom, seemed to have an incredible determination to live – and live she did!

Just look at her now :D

This is for the bacon lovers. This is what you're supporting when you buy bacon or any other meat that comes from pigs. There's nothing natural about this, quit supporting factory farming. Animals deserve to live too, they suffer and feel just as we do. #factoryfarms #meatindustry #bacon #pork #unethical #inhumane #breakfastofchumps #meat #food #health #nutrition #animalsdeservetolive

We are thrilled that the plan to build a Tyson Foods chicken slaughterhouse in Tonganoxie, KS that would kill 1.25 million chickens per week has been stopped. Tyson will be moving on to the next location. We only hope that each proposed location is systematically rejected and Tyson has nowhere to left to build.

We don't want Tyson or anyone else building new slaughterhouses. Instead we should be shutting them all down FOREVER.
We don't need to build more facilities of death, destruction and disease. Haven't we had enough of that already?

YOU can make a better world happen; together we WILL make that happen. Choose to leave animal products out of your purchases and off of your plates. It's time for us all as consumers to shift the market. We control the market and our fate, not the Tyson's of the world.

We know that many affected by this story will be making changes, how about you? Join us, be compassionate for all humans and animals.

That's according to long-standing organic regulations. But a huge battle has erupted over what "access to the outdoors" actually means. And it's now led to a lawsuit: The Organic Trade Association, which represents most organic food companies, is suing the government, demanding that it implement new rules that require organic egg producers to give their chickens more room to roam. Half of "organic" eggs in the U.S. come from large factory farm egg producers such as Herbruck's Poultry Ranch in Saranac, Michigan. They believe that "access to the outdoors" means that the chickens get to live in houses with screened-in porches.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) under the Obama administration gave final approval to a new regulation that — among many other things — requires organic egg producers to provide real outdoor space — roughly 2 square feet — for each egg-laying hen. Porches don't count. But corporate Republicans and Democrats in Congress are taking the side of the dirty factory farms. And when the Trump administration took office, it put the new standard on hold and suggested that it might even be withdrawn. The Organic Trade Organization now is going to court, demanding that the new government step aside and let the new rules take effect.
