BuzzFlash.com's Review (excerpt)

Watch the trailer for "A River of Waste The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms" and learn about the grave toxicity and pollution issues facing us from mega-corporate breeding farms. Like the privatization of water, genetically modified foods used to patent and privatize our food supply, and toxic chemicals and hormones in our food supply, this issue should be at the top of our public policy concerns.

"A heart-stopping new documentary, A RIVER OF WASTE exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production. Some scientists have gone so far as to call the condemned current factory farm practices as mini Chernobyls. In the U.S and elsewhere, the meat and poultry industry is dominated by dangerous uses of arsenic, antibiotics, growth hormones and by the dumping of massive amounts of sewage in fragile waterways and environments. The film documents the vast catastrophic impact on the environment and public health as well as focuses on the individual lives damaged and destroyed."

These factory farms are breeding grounds for diseases and pollution. Some have speculated that a corporate factory hog farm in Mexico and its trail of fetid untreated waste was the source of the latest outbreak of swine flu.

"A River of Waste The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms" is part of a new stage in BuzzFlash, advocating for reining in the corporations that are operating behind the scenes to seize control of our food and water supply, without concern for toxins and pollution. This is a far more dangerous threat than many of our political battles in Washington about which the media spends so much time covering, when the basic needs of food and water for life are being stolen and toxified as our attention is diverted.
