Factory Farms Are a Threat to America, Says Bernie Sanders | LIVEKINDLY
American politician Bernie Sanders has spoken out about the meat industry, naming factory farms a threat to America.
Writing on Twitter to his 9.26 million followers, the 77-year-old senator — who is running for President of the United States in 2020 — commented on the waste that factory farms produce. “Factory farms are responsible for 1.4 trillion pounds of animal waste in America,” he said.
“They are a threat to the water we drink and the air we breathe, and it is unbelievable to me that Republicans in Congress have been working overtime to exempt factory farms from environmental laws,” he continued.
