Movie Reviews

POWERFUL!
Vegan-Analysis | from parts unknown | 05/02/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"1) American agriculture and international policy do immeasurable harm to poor countries.

2) American agriculture deprives much of the world of food resources. Corn that could feed humans is fed to pigs and chickens. What wrong with that?

3) Their lives aren't worth living, because they merely exist in a factory farm world of pain, despair and hopelessness.

4) Most of the antibiotics go to factory farm animals, not to humans. This is creating new diseases that can jump species and are resistent to antibiotics.

5) Our water resources are being polluted, ecosystems are being destroyed, creatures are dying.

6) Humans who live next to factory farms are living in stench, breathing toxic air, and getting sick.

That's the movie."
Powerful ! Must watch if you care about your health and food

"Powerful and strong ! A must watch! Shows how Tyson and other companies are contaminating air, water and land by producing harmful products. Effectively, Tyson has conducted scare tactics and threatened academia, controlled political powers to ensure that their profits are not hurt, but the rest of flora, fauna and people are."
