Farm animals are treated horrifically. Cows release methane, contributing to global warming. This massive industry is driven by artificially high-meat diets, which are manufactured through government subsidies to the animal agriculture industry and heavy advertising to the public. Knowledge about the cruelties that happen behind their walls are hidden from the public, and far transcend the amount of horror an average person would ever experience.
Factory farming also contributes to the rise of pandemics.
