I just watched River of Waste. I thought it was really well done and informed me way more about the factory farms. There was a part of the movie after describing the meat packing industry as "Grade F" on the report card. Not on just treatment of animals but on everything! It showed the narrator throwing away a container of raw chicken into a bio-hazard garbage can in the kitchen. Then they basically explained why you might as well throw away the raw chicken in the trash as well. The hormones are toxic and you are basically cooking in the other toxins and waste when you cook the chicken. I really think seeing this is going inform me when I shop. I will now buy less chicken. It just feels like a scam to me now.
I was really surprised when they explained how by using hormones on animals like chickens we are strengthening the bird flu. And we could cause a mutation from bird to human by doing this repeatedly.
I'll see if I can watch that movie when I get the chance.
People apparently think that chicken is some sort of "healthy" alternative to other meats, when in fact is even worse when it comes to certain health risk factors, including cholesterol, salmonella, cancer, obesity, and others. Not that other animal products are much better, really.
Apart from the greatly avoided fact that chickens are arguably the most abused animals on Earth.
But, hey, it's not like that say much about any industry based on torturing and murdering sentient beings.
Some videos about the effects of chicken meat on human health, based on scientific studies. Evidence of the abuse they receive can be found on the videos listed by Vegan, although it goes without saying that animals are killed for humans to consume (and "humane killing" is an oxymoron).
"There is no hope. Knowing that humans die untimely, by the millions, simply makes me feel a bit better. If more than, say, 2000 were killed in one go, I could smile. 20000? I might throw a party..."

Lomedin: Have you noticed that those treating their children/animals the worst are the ones saying "don't tell me how to treat them"? Do they think they are great at what they do, or are they just egomaniac assholes? Both?

scwcc: Yup. They know they look bad and have no good defense, so they resort to framing the other person as 'judgemental' to deflect. Sad part is, it usually works. :/
