Much of this waste is spread over fields, where it can seep into local aquifers that supply people's wells. In Morrison, WI, more than 100 wells were polluted by agricultural runoff within a few months, according to local officials. As parasites and bacteria seeped into drinking water, residents suffered from chronic diarrhea, stomach illnesses and severe ear infections.

Being good stewards of God's Creation entails taking care of our environment for our sake and our future generation's sake. Factory farming is a clear example of the love for power over animals and the love for money.
