Many prefer not to know about where their food actually comes from as the truth would be too depressing and too gruesome. However, our eating habits are having a profound impact on the world we live in.
Factory farming – the main industry that supplies most of the world’s appetite for meat, dairy, and eggs – significantly affects our health, our food supply, and our environment, not to mention the lives of billions of animals who suffer and die in factory farms every year.
Article after article can be found providing greater detail into the above points, but sometimes, long readings can’t quite do the trick to wake people up to the damaging system we’ve created. Sometimes a simple video, like the one provided here by the ASPCA can do the trick.
As the ASPCA reports, the video showcases “the chilling story of how modern, industrial agriculture practices defy common sense and cut corners—and how the industry follows that up by pushing for state laws to hide the rampant animal cruelty.”
Unlike so many other factory farming videos, this particular one features zero gore; instead, it gives viewers the basic brutal facts about industrialized farming in an approachable (albeit sad) way.
Let’s help this simple yet powerful video reach a broader audience – hit the share buttons at the top of this post to spread it around on social media. You can also find out what you can do to help end factory farming by visiting this article.
