Incredibly Powerful Report on Egg Farms

"Cleveland, Ohio’s Fox 8 News I-Team recently aired an exclusive expose featuring MFA’s three undercover investigations at Ohio’s largest egg factory farms. The piece, with a running time of about 8 minutes, aired three times during primetime spots. The segment was hyped in preceding days, with TV and radio ads repeatedly stating that viewers may want to think twice the next time they consider eating eggs."

Neighbors of Vast Hog Farms Say Foul Air Endangers Their Health

"Robert Thornell says that five years ago an invisible swirling poison invaded his family farm and the house he had built with his hands. It robbed him of his memory, his balance and his ability to work. It left him with mood swings, a stutter and fistfuls of pills. He went from doctor to doctor, unable to understand what was happening to him. The 14th doctor finally said he knew the source of the maladies: cesspools the size of football fields belonging to the industrial hog farm a half-mile from the Thornell home."

Mailbag: Why Vegan Spam?

We all think the messages we should be putting out should be called "VEGAN ANTI-SPAM", and if no one else does it, we plan on doing it ourselves, because vegans must not be contradictory in any way otherwise we will not be taken seriously. In addition, we must stand apart from all the other spams and define ourselves as the anti-spams.

We find that a lot of people enjoy the irony of the title “Vegan Spam.” Although there is no single reason behind why people don't consider the vegan message, it has been our experience that it isn’t any contradiction that leads vegans to not be taken seriously. In some cases, the arrogance and self-righteousness of some vegans keeps many from considering our message. The vegan example can be much more attractive to people if it contains humor, joy, and humility.

Thank you for all the valuable information your organization has provided me. It has helped me make some wise and informed decisions, and allowed me to better explain my choices to the people around me.

I don’t know where to begin in expressing my appreciation! What you do for the defenseless animals of this world is highly commendable. I’d like to help you spread awareness!

I just wanted to thank you for getting all this information to me in time for the Ft. Worth Main St. Arts Festival this past weekend. Our booth was a huge success. We spoke with hundreds of people who were, wanted to be, or knew someone who was vegetarian. We gave away about 500 Why Vegans, 200 Vegetarian Livings and 50 Vegan Starter Packs. We got such a positive response from everyone and we will definitely be doing this every year from now on. Thanks again.
