Tom Beutel, writer for PeaceSigns, the Peace and Justice Support Network of Mennonite Mission Network and Mennonite Church USA, writes “Factory Farming and Health.” This is the second article in a three part series on food peace which discusses the ethical and non-ethical production of food, specifically in factory farming. In this discussion, Beutel supports eating local food as factory farming encourages poor quality of food, less-healthy animals and poor nutrition in general.
