Remember the Chicken Fast Food COMMERCIAL that has a COW with a sign that says "Eat more Chikin" ... after watching this, you might even cut back on the chicken too and Eat More PASTA. This documentary and others like it, should be watched by the general public (and even kids in high school).
More companies are ADVERTISING "PASTURE RAISED" as HEALTHIER FOOD AND MORE HUMANE TREATMENT OF LIVESTOCK.
Remember all of those E-COLI OUTBREAKS that you hear pretty often in the news. These are oftentimes, huge animal feed lots with animals eating corn out of a trough while living and walking in mud and excrement (where the E-COLI comes from) ... And the chickens have a PAINFUL life starting at day one until they're slaughtered, living in closed barracks with NO LIGHT. Unlike story books or family farm of a hundred years ago, there are NO COWS WANDERING CONTENTED THRU SCENIC PASTURES WITH GRASS AND FLOWERS. First, comes CORPORATE PROFIT, COSTS and EFFICIENCY then the PUBLIC MARKETING.
The film brings out alternative, REALISTIC viewpoints, such as local CO-OPS of family farms for people who may be concerned about HEALTHIER food and MAYBE the Humane treatment of livestock (at least for their DAY TO DAY LIVING CONDITIONS) for most of their life.
Consider that COWS, PIGS and even CHICKENS are at the SAME LEVEL of Intelligence, Feelings and Emotions as your FAMILY DOG or the HORSE that you ride on vacation. Just because we ONLY SEE what's left of them in the SUPERMARKET PLASTIC WRAP, does that REALLY make it "HUMANE". At least consider supporting those (smaller) companies and Co-Ops (Meat and Dairy) who try to give their livestock a relatively decent life. You don't have to become a vegetarian, but maybe eat pasta of fish more often and READ the MARKETING LABELS more carefully.
*** Go to the Internet Sites for "ORGANIC VALLEY" and "VITAL FARMS" and NESTFRESH" as an example and find out WHICH SUPERMARKETS support these Co-Ops. You might pay an extra dollar or two, but supporting the right thing to do has to start somewhere.
--- pasture-raised refers to where it eats (on a pasture) ... not in a
cage or crowded with thousands in barns
--- organic, cage-free, and free-range classifications/certifications do
not guarantee that the birds are fed a natural diet or that they live
the life of a normal chicken
--- “grass-fed” refers only to what an animal eats (grass) - not how good
or bad it's treated

This video goes hand in hand with FED UP, which deals with sugar and hints at the mum-order put on Michelle Obama when she tried to make the nation aware of the problem.
Also recommended follow-up is the book BRAIN MAKER by neurosurgeon David Perlmutter. This explains the inner workings of the gut and its effect on neurological problems like Alzheimers, Autism, and ADD. He calls Alzheimers Type 3 Diabetes. All of this is related to what FOOD INC and FED UP are exposing. A silent chemical warfare on the citizens of America.
Unfortunately, the economy would be shaken if people started to pay attention, so big business is in the business of hushing whistle-blowers like these. You will not regret watching this, and it may save your life.
You will never look at beef, or chicken the same way on your plate. Even now the memory of the visuals are so horrific of what farmers do to their corn fed cows - it's almost unbearable to think of the cruelty they endure. We need to push for food that hasn't been shoved, and tainted full of hormones, chemicals, etc., This is a travesty, and it points to the sickening greed that permeates Corporate America. Support your local organic farmer. They're doing your body a favor.
