What stuck out to me the most was the affect of separating plants from the animals. They said that in the wild the plants create a wonderful cycle if the plants feeding the animals and the animals feeding the plants. When the animals are concentrated in a large area their manure that would normally be a blessing for the plants, turns into a a highly toxic substance that is high in disease and other harmful chemicals. Another fact that I found interesting was that of all the food that is grown only 30% actually goes to humans. The reaming 70% goes to producing the feed for livestock. I found this rather amazing considering that they are all about trying to feed the entire world with the most effective way possible.
One of the main themes in the film was the farmers questioning whether or not they should sprat their crops with pesticides. So i was curious to find out what are some side effects on humans from pesticides. According to the CCOHS pesticides can cause a range of problems spanning from headache and dizziness. All the way to unconsciousness and death.
