The Thanksgiving Myth: Reflecting on Land Theft, Betrayal and Genocide

My Factory-Farmed Thanksgiving Terror

Rebecca Rehr, OtherWords: Unless your turkey came of age on an organic farm, there s a good chance it was pumped full of antibiotics. The overuse and misuse of antibiotics on factory-farmed animals is making these life-saving drugs less effective for humans.
