About This Blog

This blog is about the production of meat in our industrialized world, its impact on the environment, human health, and poverty.

 The livestock industry produces large amounts of gasses responsible for global warming and acid rain. And is responsible for massive amounts of deforestation. Livestock production also releases toxins into the environment, many of which then make their way into water and food.

The turn to large, industrialized, farms has decreased the number of small farms, and made it harder for small farmers to earn a living. This has increased the amount of poverty world-wide.
