pdjmoo's insight:

Time we all got off the wheel of blind consumerism and got back to sensible farming and eating.... and stop trying to manipulate nature and our animals for even more and more profit ... do you like eating corporate food, or even know what's in it? how it was produced or where?  Have you any idea of the devastation it is doing to our ecosystems and environment that every living species depends upon for survival?  And What about your health?  Wake-up World Your Life Depends Upon It
