Letter From Paul About Health Threats of Factory Farming - 22 May 2009

I found Jenny's letter [about swine flu and mistreatment of animals published in the Sydney Morning Herald] when I was thinking along similar lines and doing a few web searches. It seems to me that (nearly?) all the (so far rather lame) health threats of recent times seem to originate in farmed animals. I figure we reap what we sow and that our maltreatment of animals makes these things inevitable. And this is without even considering the numerous ailments that are a direct or indirect effect of our treatment of animals as mere commodities.

Great letter. I'm hoping to write an online article about the ideas vaguely mentioned above. If you have any suggestions for where to look research wise, I'd be glad to hear them.


Reply from Frank and Mary Hoffman

Dear Paul:

Thank you for writing and for your comments. We are forwarding them along to Jenny.

You might want to look at our Animal Exploitation section http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/ for some more information for you article, and we'd very much like to publish it when it is written.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
