Summary
This documentary "exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production ... In the U.S. and elsewhere, the industry is dominated by dangerous uses of arsenic, antibiotics and growth hormones and also by the dumping of massive amounts of sewage in fragile waterways affecting the nearby towns and its citizens. This film documents the vast catastrophic impact on the environment and public health, as well as focuses on the individual lives damaged and destroyed."--Container
