FWIW the pig farm industry isn't nearly as bad as it was in that vide now.

It's not much, but the pigs that went through my parents farm were treated very well.

Sow farms, were you saw all the clipping and sows unable to move have had some significant changes.

I wish free range was viable, but there are just to many mouths to feed.

 

The fact is that livestock agriculture is very inefficient in regards to land-use. If we are going to continue to feed the planet, we need to move away from animal proteins, as a primary source, collectively.

I think we need to invest in food technology and move away from animal sources. Lab meat, artificial complete proteins, etc.

The Dirt: Roundup, the most widely used herbicide in the country, is sprayed on everything from cotton to canola, lawns to golf courses. So it stands to reason that the stuff winds up in our air and water. But when you're eating "Roundup Ready" food, as in, food that's been genetically modified to withstand all those Roundup applications, you're eating it too, according to plant pathologist Don Huber, PhD, professor emeritus at Purdue University. That's problematic because scientists are learning that Roundup affects defensive enzymes our bodies use to keep us healthy. Roundup also reduces a plant's ability to take up vital micronutrients that humans require for survival.

Better Alternative: Corn, soy, and canola are common crops that have been genetically engineered to withstand heavy dousings of Roundup (or other glyphosate-containing chemicals), and foods containing these ingredients tend to contain higher levels of Roundup than other crops do. To avoid genetically engineered (GE) foods and Roundup in your food, buy organic.
