It is only a matter of time before one of these explodes into a fearful and swiftly-spreading pandemic. Infections, pneumonia, meningitis, cholera - the clock is ticking.

Well we need a massive human die off so maybe this is the start of that one day soon hopefully. It's the poor animals i really feel 4--they're pumped everyday. Signed-thanks

All the more reason to support local CSAs, farmers' markets and small organic growers. But you can't have it both ways. Cheap production food is low-cost and unhealthy. Organic food and small farms are MUCH healthier for you and the environment, but no farmer wants to work for 2 bucks an hour.
