Be Aware of Animal Feeding Operations

When you look at your food do you ever ask, “Where did this come from?” CAFO’s (confined animal feeding operations) are giant farms that are overcrowded with animals that are treated with hormones to mass-produce our meats and eggs. With such a large amount of animals in tight areas, diseases are forming! One study discovered that 23 percent of caged hens tested positive for salmonella. CAFO’s try to combat this with giving the animals antibiotics, but they are just finding more strains of viruses. CAFO’s are creating unnatural products from what should be the most natural source!

Stay away from big meat companies and watch out for foods in chain restaurants and fast food! Find your local organic farmer and stay healthy!
