The animal agriculture industry is able to conduct business in the most unethical ways because for the most part the people overseeing it and who are involved in it lack integrity. However, as in every field, there are some who recognize our food system is broken. These whistle blowers feel compelled to expose what they see wrong so we, the consumers, can make informed decisions. This is the case of 4 USDA whistleblowers, who appalled by the turn the pork industry is taking, choose to expose mega-corporation Hormel and its pork suppliers.
The animal-based agriculture is all about the money. Not the money and our health; not the money and the welfare of animals; and certainly not the money and the environmental impact. Making informed and --most importantly-- mindful decisions at the time of choosing food helps us align these choices with our innermost values.
