Take Heart!

Factory Farming Contributing to Global Poverty

Journalist David Moberg rightly exposes the truth behind farm subsidies and who really benefits from them. He states, "Consumers…get cheap chicken, even if much of it is contaminated with salmonella, antibiotics and other undesirable pollutants. As the world's biggest chicken producer, the United States is also the leading exporter of chicken…which is sold overseas at rock-bottom prices. Those dumped exports in turn decimate the chicken industry in many developing countries. Tally it up. Losers: farmers, farm laborers, food processing workers, rural communities, the environment, poor country peasants, many developing country agricultural industries, urban laborers in both developed and developing countries…and U.S. taxpayers. The winner: corporate agribusiness.”
