Careful where you buy your "organic" eggs!
As people are becoming increasingly aware of the downside of industrial animal agriculture for our collective health, the well being of animals, and the environment, the industry is getting more and more savvy about "giving consumers what they want" without really making a serious commitment to long-term systemic changes. Take, for example, this article from the October 5 edition of the Grand Rapids Press. The moral of the story? Indulging blind faith in food labeling is probably not a good strategy for maintaining a peaceable table. If you're going to buy the product, get to know your farmer and request a visit to the production facility.
