  1. I note that the article accompanying this post is less than wholehearted in its endorsement of the claim that swine CAFOs generated H1N1. It's only journalism, so mostly does a "he said/she said" dance, but it would be interesting to see the whole argument properly laid out with evidence.

  2. Despite being "very well documented," I can only find a few other (semi-legitimate) sources supporting this claim...

  3. Lots of systemic, mainstream abuses go relatively undocumented; even so, the case against pig farms is overdetermined as well.
