Egg-laying hens and the environment
The truth is, it’s best to steer clear of eggs – they’re not essential for your health and can significantly harm it. Chicken farms are also a disaster for the environment. It’s because we grow huge amounts of crops to feed billions of egg laying hens, the farms use a lot of energy and produce greenhouse gas emissions and mountains of waste.
