More chemicals in food.

Instead of treating the disease, how about preventing it?

Should be a warning to all concerned that the current animal husbandry factory system is not sustainable.

The industries practice extremely questionable methods from an animal rights point, while posing huge health risks to the animal population as well as the human population.

Covid is the wake up call concerning zoonotic diseases. H5N1 has been responsible for human deaths, although very few.

It is just a matter of when, not if, the perfect leap is made from avians to humans.
