Food Animal Industry Abuses 'Worsened' Under Obama Admin: Report
Common Dreams - 10/22/2013.
By Lauren McCauley - The abuses of the farm animal production industry are well-documented, from restrictive cages to the overuse of antibiotics to environmental degradation. Lesser known is that under the Obama administration, these "unsavory industry practices" have flourished. Fingering Congress and other regulatory authorities, a new report issued Tuesday by the Johns Hopkins Center for a Livable Future (CLF), slams the administration for the perpetuation of these conditions as well as the misleading legislation that has enabled them to do so.

Union of Concerned Scientists - 10/22/2013.
If farm policies helped Americans choose healthier foods, U.S. farmers would grow them, bringing a host of benefits to farm country, according to a report by the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS). “The Healthy Farmland Diet: How Growing Less Corn Would Improve Our Health and Help America’s Heartland” is a first-of-its-kind report that uses economic modeling to estimate the impacts of dietary shifts on farm production.
Good Food on a Tight Budget – a shopping guide
Environmental Working Group - 10/22/2013.
