It's common these days to identify with a certain diet. The population of vegans and vegetarians is increasing, more people than ever are turning to local food and still more are just trying to eat healthier. With so many different options and so many strong opinions, it can be hard to see eye-to-eye with friends, family or co-workers about the best way to eat.

One thing we should all be able to agree upon, however, is that factory farming isn't good for anyone. Large-scale, industrialized animal agriculture is bad for the animals, bad for us and bad for the environment. It wreaks havoc upon worker wellness and human health and is inefficient from a world hunger perspective.

The animal agriculture industry is attempting to push bills across the nation that would make it harder for citizens to see what takes place inside factory farms. Once we're no longer able to see inside these farms, it will be that much more difficult to change our broken system.

With our food system the way it currently is, there are many reasons to be angry about industrialized animal agriculture. Check out the slideshow below to get informed about the issues surrounding factory farming and learn how to get involved.
