I don't have to tell you all about the hideous conditions under which most animals are raised, and this recent Swine Flu H1N1 thing is just the latest incarnation of the virulent side effects.

exactly what do you mean? the only confirmed cases of H1N1 in pigs - in Canada and more than a week after the human outbreak first made news - appear to be cases of human to pig transmission. while it is possible that factory farming of pigs created conditions for the emergence of this strain of H1N1, there is no evidence that this was actually the case.


Smith Meadows is one of my favorite famers market vendors, so it's great to hear more about their farm. I'm kind of bummed I forgot about their open house.
