#1 Method: STOP EATING EGGS.

Battery hens are caged in 1'x 1' cages, sometimes with more than one bird, and crammed together to "save space" and bring in maximum profit to egg producers. They've never seen the light of day, their feet have never known anything but cruel wire cage bottoms, and they are forced to breathe a noxious chemical soup of vapours from their own droppings and those of thousands of other birds. Birds at the bottom of cage rows live in a perpetual rain of feces. Force-fed "diets" of chemicals for quick growth and then starved for a forced molt to "get them into egglaying condition that depletes the birds of calcium so that her own body robs her own bones, these birds are then forced to lay eggs. Those who can't anymore are discarded like trash.

Need to read more to understand that this is inhumane and therefore unacceptable, or do you need additional information to understand how the abuse of the birds also affects YOUR health?

Great comment, I agree totally, 110%.

We need more people working on legislation that bans this abusive corporate practice

Corporate farm chickens are also fed antibiotics and in many cases growth hormones, as well as ......byproducts, which makes up their feed. This is a fancy term for ground up pets, farm animal parts not used for food, minks, sheep, goats and etc. Brains from cows and other critters are also in the mix.

In Britain this brain and nerve mixture in feed of cows, sheep and chickens caused mad cow disease in humans. Over here, we call it Alzheimers, which about 50% of elderly seniors have nowadays.. They say there is no cure... well, right, if one keeps eating the stuff that causes it. Over there, they proved that a link exists and that the disease organism that causes Mad Cow Disease is NOT killed by cooking.

(obviously) the most simple and certain way to avoid Salmonellas, and CJD and MCD:
just cut out the crap ! ( GO VEG____AN ! )
---
btw, (i recently read that) EU"authorities" announced that the ban on feeding cattle with ground meat (animal waste) is going to be lifted because MCD is (believed to be) *NEARLY* extinct (( seems they want to make sure to avoid that it goes really extinct, or what?))

Something is definitely wrong with regulation of the food industry. The current salmonella-tainted egg recall: 380 MILLION EGGS, DISTRIBUTED UNDER 10 DIFFERENT BRANDS IN 17 DIFFERENT STATES, ALL FROM A SINGLE PRODUCER.


I urge everyone to see the documentary film, “Food, Inc.”. It was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. The film is enlightening, and important. More information here: http://www.foodincmovie.com/

For information about chemicals in many products, including foods, see the Environmental Working Group’s website: http://www.ewg.org/

Senate Bill S 510 would make it illegal to grow, share, trade or sell homegrown food. Unfortunately, as it is currently written, S. 510 would actually make our food less safe. S. 510 would strengthen the forces that have led to the consolidation of our food supply in the hands of a few industrial food producers, while HARMING SMALL PRODUCERS WHO GIVE CONSUMERS THE CHOICE TO BUY FRESH, HEALTHY, LOCAL FOODS.

There is also corporate corruption involved:

Monsanto’s Michael Taylor, who gave us rBGH and unregulated genetically modified (GM) organisms, appears to have designed the bill and is waiting as an appointed Food Czar to the FDA (a position unapproved by Congress) to administer the agency it would create — without judicial review — IF IT PASSES. S 510 WOULD GIVE MONSANTO UNLIMITED POWER OVER ALL US SEED, FOOD SUPPLEMENTS, FOOD AND FARMING.” http://www.infowars.com/senate-bill-s510-makes-it-illegal-to-grow-share-trade-or-sell-homegrown-food/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter


TAKE ACTION NOW:

1. Use the OpenSecrets.org website to find out how much money your Senators and Representatives receive from Monsanto and other corporate interests. http://www.opensecrets.org/politicians/index.php
Share what you have found out with the media, blogs, facebook, Twitter, etc.

2. Write to your Senators and Representatives. Express your OUTRAGE. HOLD YOUR SENATORS and REPRESENTATIVES ACCOUNTABLE. You can find your legislators’ contact information here: http://www.usa.gov/Contact/Elected.shtml

a) Tell your Senators to OPPOSE S 510 - Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010

b) Tell your Representative to OPPOSE HR 875 - Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009
