"A propulsive chronicle. Thanks to Kirby’s extraordinary journalism, we have the most relatable, irrefutable, and unforgettable testimony yet to the hazards of industrial animal farming." BOOKLIST
"Immensely readable, should be required reading for anybody concerned with how CAFOs are changing the nature of livestock farming." LIBRARY JOURNAL
Swine flu. MRSA. Unusual concentrations of cancer and other diseases. Massive fish kills from algal blooms and flesh-eating parasites. Recalls of meats, vegetables, and fruits because of deadly E-coli bacteria contamination. Recent public health crises raise urgent questions about how our animal-derived food is raised and brought to market. In Animal Factory, bestselling investigative journalist David Kirby exposes the powerful business and political interests behind large-scale factory farms, and tracks the far-reaching fallout that can contaminate our air, land, and water supply.
Animal Factory is an important book about our American food system gone terribly wrong—and the people who are fighting to restore sustainable farming practices and safe natural resources.
I would love a copy and am posting to my wall on facebook about this book! The way these animals are treated is absolutely horrifying!!!People are eating animals full of stress, fear and antibiotics, and that is only some of the things that they may know about that is in their food!!!

I've already ordered a couple of copies of this book, so I guess I don't need a third, but if Mr. Kirby wanted to autograph some miscellaneous piece of paper for AoA to give away, I would cherish it the remainder of my days, frame it for posterity, mount it in my copy of Evidence of Harm, or something along those lines!

My New Years resolution was to become a vegetarian and I have cut all red meat out, still eating fish and poultry. This book would be the ticket to my success I am sure. I can not wait to read it. Please enter me in the contest. Thanks !

We have an urgent need to clean up the way we produce our food and an overhaul on the whole industry.

After watching FOOD, INC., I will be SURE to read David Kirby's book. What has happened to our food supply is horrifying. Plus, I've been a huge fan of David Kirby since he wrote EVIDENCE OF HARM.

He deserves HUGE success for his unwavering committment to write about issues that TRULY matter and his uncompromising stance for reporting the facts -- no matter where they may lead!

Ugh...I don't have the book but I watched the segment on Anderson Cooper 360 the other night. Well...I watched most of it. I HAD to look away whenever they showed video of conditions in these farms! I don't think walking by the meat or poultry department in the grocery store will ever be the same.

So scary but so true. I live in Maine- we have the second highest Autism rate in the US (last I checked) Gulf stream crossed the US and flows right through Maine- bringing every toxin it passed with it. How many years of pollution, pesticides and genetically modified garbage has blown through this state, altering us, now affecting our children with an Autism rate of 1 in 88- god know what else is caused by this- allergies, ADHD, neurological/autoimmune disorders, cancer...etc...
As a child- 25 years ago- I NEVER heard of someone I knew having any of these problems. 20 years ago, 15, even 10- so I know it wasn't just my childhood "innocence" being protected- IT WASN'T HAPPENING at the rate it is now.
I fear for us. Not just Maine, all of us. Rising numbers of all illnesses just skyrocket per year until.... what? What has to happen for people to WAKE UP and see the damage that has been done.
