1. Poop cloud hangs over America's factory farms

    Factory farms unleash a crap storm

    With their filthy conditions and fertilizer-infested food, America's factory farms have been stirring up a public health crap storm for years.

    And now it looks like they've found a better way to do it.

    Because a shocking new report proves that factory farms have resorted to a practice so nauseating, it'll have your belly doing back flips the next time you throw a head of “fresh" lettuce into your shopping cart.

    These junk peddlers aren't just forcing crap down our throats – they're forcing it down our LUNGS!

    A Wisconsin watchdog group reports that Americans all across the fruited plains are literally choking on the AIRBORNE manure factory farms are spraying on their crops. These million-dollar food factories have begun using their irrigation machines to spray liquefied feces all over those fresh veggies you're tossing in your family's salad.

    That's right -- the crap has literally hit the fan.

    Folks living within a country mile of these farms literally can't get a breath of fresh air, and constantly inhaling manure has left them with respiratory diseases and serious infections.

    One poor sap had to move after the smell of animal waste seeped into his walls -- and all because Big Food wanted to save a few bucks on spreading manure by hand.

    Not very neighborly is it?

    Don't be fooled, these folks aren't your grandpa's local farmers, with a red barn and a couple of cows. In fact these mega-farms have forced moms and pops right out of business, and they're bullying their neighbors into selling their land for pennies on the dollar.

    It's not just unhealthy -- it's un-American.

    If you're not already buying organic, locally-grown produce, now may be the time to make the switch. Chances are you'll get to do something lots of factory farm neighbors no longer can -- breathe a little easier.

  2. Grain-fed beef cows may be fed garbage

    Garbage: It's what's for dinner

    Whether you're a rescue mutt or a pedigreed hound, I love dogs of all shapes and sizes. But if you're going to be a pooch in my house, you have to follow two simple rules -- do your business outside and don't eat out of the trash.

    And the second I find ol' Fido munching on garbage, he's going to get a firm scolding and a night in the doghouse.

    And now it's your turn. Because a new dust-up in Maine is proving once and for all that you've been eating trash for years -- and it's time we had a serious chat.

    Maine farmers are fighting tooth and nail to stop a new federal regulation that would keep them from feeding GARBAGE to the same cows they're selling to you as "Grade A" beef. Talk about grading on a curve!

    You see, for years Maine's breweries have been using fresh grains to make their beers, and then giving the spent, used-up waste to farmers to use as cattle feed. This grain is such useless trash that most breweries don't even charge for it!

    And the cattle devouring this debris aren't especially useful for you, either. Grain-fed beef is a nutritional wasteland, lacking most of the nutrients and healthy fats you'll find in grass-fed meat. Plus, grains are such an unhealthy, unnatural diet that cows are often pumped full of hormones and antibiotics just to keep them alive long enough to slaughter.

    There's nothing more important to your health than what you put in your body, so stick to organic beef fed the same natural grass they'd eat in the wild. Because when you chow down on that discount, supermarket, grain-fed beef, you're not eating real meat the way Mother Nature intended.

    You're eating garbage.
