While many of us now understand the potential health detriments of meat consumption, have you ever considered the overall health and environmental risks of factory farming?

This infographic lays it all out on the line in an attempt to answer this question: “The need to feed billions of people efficiently (and make billions of dollars off it) has given rise to large-scale animal farming operations. But are these mega-operations helping feed us or making us all sick?”

Take a look at the rise of the factory farm and its impact on public health and our delicate ecosystem for yourself. The answers may surprise (and perhaps scare) you!
