Title: Putting Meat On The Table: Industrial Farm Animal Production in America PDF
Url: http://www.pewtrusts.org/uploadedFiles/wwwpewtrustsorg/Reports/Indust...
Publisher: Pew Charitable Trusts
Description: Most people have probably heard about the recent troubles with mad cow disease, but they might not know much about the broader changes that have occurred with meat production over the past fifty years. This compelling 124-page report, released in April 2008, takes a close look into the nature of industrial meat production in America. The report was funded by a grant from The Pew Charitable Trusts to the John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. The report is divided into four separate chapters and a conclusion, and the sections cover environmental risks, animal welfare, and public health concerns. Most visitors will also want to take a look at the substantive recommendations offered by the Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production which concludes the report. Additionally, there is a shorter version of the report that's also available on the site.
