animal agriculture is a human rights issue;
people don’t take in to consideration the conditions that the 700,000 workers on these farms have to face on a day to day basis. Workers in factory farms have a 100% turnover rate, which means that they will either get sick and have to quit or they will quit on their own accord.
the majority of workers after spending such long periods of time inside of these factory farms end up with ‘chronic respiratory disorders, exacerbation of asthma, (and) cardiovascular complications” (source) An article in the Texas Observer even goes as far as to explain how workers who are forced to brutalize animals with no empathy develop psychological issues such as PTSD.

according to the United Nations: World Food Program “there are 842 million undernourished people in the world today.” (source) In the United States a little over 70% of grain produced (source) every year is used to feed the ten billion(source) factory farmed animals slaughtered every year for food.
if you took the time to do the math like David Pimentel, professor of ecology at Cornell University did in 1997 you would realize that we could feed all the starving people in the world with the grain that livestock eat.(source)
This is very important
