SINCE 2012, Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries has been secretly using spy drones to investigate and expose the environmental devastation caused by factory farms. In this investigation, the drones capture shocking aerial video footage of several massive facilities that supply pigs for Smithfield Foods.
Worldwide Reaction to the First-Ever Factory Farm Drone Investigation
Within a few weeks of its release, this investigation by Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries had been viewed by millions worldwide, and received major global press coverage. The video continues to be viewed around the world from this website, from the Speciesism: The Movie website, and elsewhere.
Behind the Factory Farm Drone Investigation Videos
Filmmaker Mark Devries of Speciesism: The Movie began developing the plan to use drones on farms in 2012, when a Georgetown Law student suggested the idea at a sneak-preview screening of Speciesism: The Movie. Countless technical problems and cost overruns delayed the project nearly three years, with the series finally being released starting with this video’s publication in late-2014.
The Future of Drones on Farms
Mark Devries will continue investigating factory farms with the use of drones, and will continue releasing videos with the findings of his investigations. Please stay informed through the mailing list at Speciesism: The Movie, the official Facebook page of Speciesism: The Movie, and the official Twitter feed of Speciesism: The Movie.
The Citizen Drone Project
While Spy Drones Expose Smithfield Foods Factory Farms was the first investigation to employ drones on farms, Speciesism: The Movie director Mark Devries has expanded the project into a larger operation, The Citizen Drone Project.

Exclusive: undercover inside the US dairy industry
With planning permission for Britain's biggest dairy at Nocton about to be re-submitted, The Ecologist travels to California to examine intensive milk production - and finds factory farms, conflict, intimidation, pesticides, pollution and small-scale farmers driven out of business...
‘You better get out of here or your gonna get your ass kicked or worse,’ the leathery-faced farmer slurred, picking his words carefully as we pulled up outside his milking parlour. It was coming to the end of our first day in the US, and despite our best efforts to persuade the farmers otherwise, it was clear that journalists are not welcome in this part of the world.
Far from the glittering lights and well trodden-tourist paths that people normally associate with California, the vast udders of America’s dairy industry run through the Central Valley, a rarely-visited arid plain that stretches down the state, wedged in between the Sierra foothills and the Californian coast.
This is the breadbasket of the USA, where almond farms, grapes and corn are carved out of the scrubby desert and grown on eye-wateringly large scales. It is also home to the largest dairies on the planet, a concentration of several hundred milk farms so vast, that in Tulare county alone, there are over 900,000 cows, producing in excess of a billion dollars worth of milk each year.
But as an Ecologist investigation carried out in conjunction with the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) has discovered, the Central Valley has also become a battleground for an unreported conflict, pitting community activists and family farmers against the might of mega dairy farms that have taken root here.
Factory or farm?
For a first-time visitor, the sight and scale of a mega dairy is overwhelming; enormous open-air sheds, mountains of feed, million-gallon pools of slurry and thousands upon thousands of listless cows. Granted access by disgruntled dairy employees, we were able to observe a mega dairy in operation. More akin to a factory production line than a farm long lines of cows could be seen stumbling over outstretched udders as they were driven back and forth to the robotic-like, rotary-milking parlours.
It is a continual daily cycle that stops only when the milk output begins to tail off, and the animals are either re-impregnated or sent off to slaughter; burnt out and discarded after only a few years of life on the factory floor. Animals in American mega dairies will never see a patch of grass in their life, and the only respite comes from shade in the dusty open-air lots where they wait between milking. Even here the animals will not get a chance to really rest; high-milk yielding cows suffer from chronic ‘negative energy balance’, where the cow uses more energy in making milk that she can physically take in by eating, losing body condition as a result.
The Holstein is the favoured breed of choice for most mega dairies, their towering bony frames contrasting wildly with bulging vein-filled udders swinging underneath them. Milk produced by them is of a lower quality with a higher pus content in the milk than that produced by other cow breeds, but what these freakishly-bred animals lack in quality, they make up for in quantity: milked three times a day and propped up with growth hormones to boost milk production, and antibiotics to stave off frequent infections, milk output in the Holstein has doubled in the last 40 years alone.
It’s not just the animals that suffer. Tom Frantz is a retired schoolteacher and grew up in Shafter, a small town in Tulare County. ‘Until 1996, there weren't any dairies near me, then we got the first mega dairy situated close to here, followed by several others. Within a couple of years at the local school we had two big problems that have never existed before… the school was invaded by hoards of flies, nasty biting flies, clogging the water coolers and forcing the teachers to hang fly strips in the middle of each classroom. It changed things, changed the atmosphere of the school. Then nitrates in the water showed up. The school had always used water from its own well in the past, but suddenly the nitrate level doubled, then tripled, making it unsafe to drink,’ he told The Ecologist.

How to Get Rid of Intestinal Parasites (recipe) | Natural Cures
When you hear the term "intestinal parasites," you likely think of animals or people living in third world countries.
However, this is not true at all. The World Health Organization, has estimated that more than three billion people are infected around the world by intestinal parasites.
It is one of the highest reasons that people seek medical attention. However, there are many more people that are suffering from these parasites and do not ever show symptoms.
These parasites grow in dark, moist areas. So, within your intestinal tract, they are provided with substances that keep them alive.
First, you may wonder, what is an intestinal parasite?
A parasite is a small organism that gets inside of your body. Once inside, it can feed off what it finds within your body.
Intestinal parasites live inside the intestines of humans.
Most often, these parasites enter your body through contaminated food or drinks.
Children are often the most infected, most likely since they seem to place everything in their mouths and have some sort of hatred for washing their hands.
However, people of all ages are at equal risk to contract these parasites if they are exposed to unsanitary conditions.
Sometimes it is hard to discover these intestinal parasites. The symptoms sometimes mirror other ailments which makes it difficult to diagnose.
It is very important to keep these symptoms in mind, as if you do contract a parasite, it is important to seek treatment as quickly and as early as possible.
If you believe that you may have an intestinal parasite, or are experiencing the symptoms above, you should consult your doctor to be diagnosed properly.
If your doctor confirms that you, in fact, have intestinal parasites, the most important thing to do is to modify your diet immediately.
You should reduce the amount of Sugar and processed food that you consume.
Your doctor will likely prescribe medical treatment to get rid of the parasites. However, you can also take advantage of some all-natural solutions that support your digestive system and do not cause weird or unpleasant side effects.
Flax seeds and cloves are a natural remedy that has become popular for eliminating these parasites.
These ingredients can control swelling, kill germs, and kill parasites.
They can battle these infections prior to them developing into more serious conditions.
- 1 tablespoon cloves
- 10 tablespoons flax seeds
-Incorporate the ingredients in a coffee grinder to create a powder.
To use as a treatment to eliminate parasites:
- Take two tablespoons of the powder when you wake up.
- You can mix it with warm water or even right in with your breakfast.
- Take for three to seven consecutive days, take a break for the same amount of time, then begin again.
- Repeat every three months or any time you feel necessary.
For best results, drink plenty of water while taking this treatment.
It is important to remain hydrated to keep all your bodily functions running properly.
Remember to always practice good hygiene and wash your hands regularly.
This will help to prevent any parasites from entering your body.
Also, if you have any pets in the home, they should be de-wormed by their veterinarian, as per their recommendations. Pets can spread parasites easily when they are infected.

Taenia solium, also called the pork tapeworm. It infects pigs and humans in Asia, Africa, South America and pockets of Nortth America. In the larval stage, it causes cysticercosois which is a major cause of seizures in humans.
The infection is caused by ingestion of eggs shed in the feces of a human Tapeworm carrier. Pigs and humans become infected by ingesting eggs or gravid proglottids. Humans are infected either by ingestion of food contaminated with feces containing eggs, or by autoinfection.In the latter case, a human infected with adult T. solium can ingest eggs produced by that tapeworm, either through fecal contamination or, possibly, from proglottids carried into the stomach by reverse peristalsis. Once eggs are ingested, oncospheres hatch in the intestine, invade the intestinal wall, and migrate to striated muscles, as well as the brain, liver, and other tissues, where they develop into cysticerci.
Live Diphyllobothrium Latum (fish tapeworm) during Colonoscopy
A 46-year-old woman presented with a history of 3 days of pruritus in the anal area and 1 day of excretion of tapelike materials. During the year before presentation, she had reported intermittent colicky abdominal pain and loose stool, which had been attributed to irritable bowel syndrome. Laboratory evaluation was unremarkable, with no evidence of anemia. Colonoscopy revealed a long, moving tapeworm, Diphyllobothrium latum, located in the terminal ileum and extending to the sigmoid colon. D. latum is a fish Tapeworm that can infect humans after they consume infected undercooked or raw fish. The patient had a history of eating raw fish and recalled eating raw trout most recently 2 months before presentation. She was treated with a single dose of praziquantel. After administration, the abdominal pain resolved, but she continued to have intermittent loose stool.
