Factory Farming Each year millions of pigs, chickens, cows, and other mass produced animals are being abused, brutally murdered, and have even become a health hazard to human beings.

I bet it turns your stomach, it does mine yet this very process is going on right now and all without painkillers or anti-depressants.
