Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!
Factory Farms and Public Health

Dr. Aysha Akhtar, author of Animals and Public Health: Why treating animals better is critical to human welfare and publish last month, discusses the public health dangers of raising animals for food in factory farms. Dr. Akhtar states that these farms are the ideal vessels for viruses and bacteria to rotate, combine and mutate. Thus, birdflu and other diseases will continue to be a threat for as long as we raise animals in this way. The link between animals and public health cannot longer be denied.

Please visit News release: Bird Flu Will Remain A Threat As Long As Factory Farms Exist:
Short-sighted practices such as the one of raising God's farmed animals in factory farms are causing much disease and devastation. What goes around, comes around. We cannot expect to promote health by causing misery to these animals.
