Old McDonald is Killing You Softly

Remember when you moved out to the country to get away from ‘them city slickers’, ‘smog’ and ‘books’? Well I’ve got some bad news for you pardner. The farm you live on or next to, with those cows and chickens is straight up murdering you. That’s right. The Financial Times reports that ammonia from animal waste combines with other chemicals in the atmosphere to reduce lung function by up to 5%. If you already smoke two packs of Marlboro Reds a day, you are totally f—ed because Daisy the dairy cow who makes your milk is whispering ‘REDRUM’ over and over in her stall.  But that’s not all these cows are up to. They’re also implicated in climate change, although that might not be a bad thing.
