A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs – 17 April 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

Karen Davis, PhD and President of United Poultry Concerns (UPC), has updated the book Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs published in 1990 that revealed the cruelty of the egg industry and the hidden causes of Salmonella and Campylobacter food poisoning.

The Newly Revised Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs documents what has happened since the book first appeared – the waging of high-profile campaigns to get rid of battery cages for laying hens, undercover investigations exposing the appalling cruelty to chickens and turkeys by poultry industry workers, globalization of chicken production and its effect on the environment and spread of avian influenza, and how farm animal sanctuaries have become key players in debunking industry myths with truthful accounts of the sensitive and intelligent birds being brutalized in the name of “food.” – From “Poultry Press” Spring-Summer 2009, page 5.

This new 224 page edition of Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs is available from United Poultry Concerns for $14.95.
