This 80-minute interview by Dr. Mercola of Dr. Shiv Chopra, author of Corrupt to the Core, significantly contributes to the global movement to end hunger. Take the “most toxic food system” on Earth — that of the US and Canada, he says — and let it die a natural death because we no longer buy its product.

Spending millions of ad dollars on bolstering support for Issue 2, industry giants are confident they’ll win. The initiative thwarts a growing national movement to enforce more humane, and fewer, CAFOs – concentrated animal feeding operations. Continue reading
