Topic: Prisoned Chickens, Poisoned Eggs ~ An Insider’s Look at the Modern Poultry Industry

In this workshop, Karen Davis, PhD presents an overview of chicken exploitation and reviews the unfortunate history of how chickens came to be used for food, feathers, and more. Karen discusses our modern world of avian influenza, food poisoning, global warming and genetic engineering. She explores how the expansion of poultry production and consumption is cruel, sickening, and environmentally destructive and offers a compelling argument for adopting a compassionate, plant-based, animal-free diet as an alternative to the warfare waged on defenseless chickens.
