The Effect of Mega-agriculture on the Health of Animals

The Effect of Mega-agriculture on the Health of Animals

Dr. Greg Harrison presented a very well received lecture on “The Effect of Mega-agriculture on the Health of Animals” at an IWRC Symposium. Below you will find a link to the full presentation and a shorted (5-minute) version for your viewing pleasure and to share as you see fit.

There is broad evidence of the adverse effects of today’s mega-agriculture on all animals. Mega-agriculture includes the use of GMO or genetic modified organisms, glyphosate-ready crops, pesticides and artificial fertilizers. The effects range from behavior and reproductive disorders to immune suppression and cancers. All these issues point to the value of encouraging organic farming and being proactive in preventing these calamities in the first place.
