The Environmental Protection Agency claims that 29 states have “…specifically identified animal feeding operations as contributing to water quality impairment.” Moreover, EPA says 68 studies have been completed and show the animal livestock industry “…as an important contributor of surface water pollution.”

In fact 15 of the 68 studies, EPA alleges, have directly linked confined animal feeding operations to air and water pollutants which have lead to specific health or environmental impacts.

The allegations get much worse!
