As a follow up to yesterday’s comment about organic ag, I came across this article. Basically, free range and organically grown eggs are less healthy than factory farm eggs. Free range chickens are allowed to eat things that the farmers can’t control, and these things end up in the final product.
Yet, I will still prefer to purchase free range eggs (if practical, money is a little tight) just because I don’t like the idea of chickens spending their entire lives enclosed in cases. I just won’t be telling people that it’s healthier.
