You'll never eat a Chicken McNugget again!
This book really is a must read.
If you think our factory farm produced food is bad... read the book, it was shock your socks off. It's worse that you know.
If you think simply buying organic is the answer - read on.
One of the most shocking things I found was the so called "Organic" industry is noting less than our standard factory farms without chemicals, pesticides and hormones.
In most cases the treatment of animals by organic factory farms is only slightly better that standard mass produced farm products.
I felt so sad and angry over what I learned. As far as I'm concerned Whole Foods Market is guilty of numerous sins against the consumer who pays a butt ton extra thinking they are actually getting a free range chicken, or pastured raised beef.. Ha!

One things for sure, next year's garden will be bigger.
