A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms

A must-see about the damage to the environment being caused by factory farms (also known as CAFOs – Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) and their dangerous practices, and how our regulations compare with the rest of the world. US practices and regulations are given Report Card ratings in areas such as arsenic, ammonia, antibiotics, hormones, waste disposal, and animal welfare and are compared against ratings in the same categories for European countries, showing an enormous disparity. It is truly frightening to see the results of the damage caused by the pollution of the air and water, including young lives lost by sudden onset of terminal diseases after exposure to this hazardous pollution. The current standards are not sustainable and must be changed to give us an opportunity to reverse the damage that has been done.
