Cheap Meat?

Raising animals in factory farms might seem the most efficient and cheapest way to obtain animal products; however, once we consider the toll in takes on the environment and on our health, prices don't seem so cheap anymore.

Moreover, some bacteria strains such as E. coli bacteria evolve into deadly ones due to the massive overuse of antibiotics.

The solution? To get rid of them and replace them with sustainable farms.
