File this under "Whodathunkit?" or "You don't say," or "Doh!!!" whatever expression you use to convey the total obviousness of any given comment.

Another good title for this piece would be Malcolm X's quote about chickens coming home to roost, which is perhaps more apropos, since this is the result of the industrial food system's insistence on raising animals on factory farms.

In any event, I still think it's good to publicize the results of our unnatural and unhealthy and unethical and unjust factory farming practices, however obvious one thinks the inevitable outcomes of such practices are.

Of particular interest might be the one comment posted on the Globe and Mail's site, which I totally disagree with. If I were a conspiracy-minded person, I'd say it was written by a representative of the industrial food system masquerading as a private citizen, but you can draw your own conclusions...
