Millions of pigs are crammed into overcrowded barns all across the state, being fattened for slaughter while breeding superbugs--all to feed China's growing appetite for Spam.

I hate to say it, but of all the edible animals, hogs are essentially the 'clean-up' crew, designed to rummage through manure and just about anything else. Consequently, it's no surprise that many cultures refuse to eat them, and that they have the capacity to introduce all sorts of Superbugs into the supply chain. If China was the spam, let them raise the hogs there. It's ridiculous to allow our land to be polluted, and then use the fuel to ship things 10,000 miles away!

This should NOT come as a surprise to anyone! Cramming animals into tiny areas means very concentrated excrement which WILL find its way into water supplies.

this is an industry that clearly needs more regulation. it's time to get serious about pollution from hog operations.

I really don;t understand how people keep eating meat. It's horribly cruel for the animals, it's devastating for the environment and is bad for the body. What else do people need to go vegan?

Cette industrie a besoin de gens qui vérifient la qualité des soins donnés aux animaux, à tout le moins. Quant à moi, cette industrie devrait être abolie, tout simplement.
