Factory farming kills people, not just animals.
Take the Swine Flu, for example. Total American swine flu deaths leaped from 4000 last month to 10,000 this month:
“Federal health officials said Thursday that almost 10,000 people had died of swine flu since April, a significant jump from mortality numbers released last month.”
“A month ago, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimated that only about 4,000 had died.”
