Heard of the Meatrix yet? Watch this great flash movie on factory
farming at: http://www.themeatrix.com

Food irradiation is a key part of factory farming. By sterilizing meat
at the end of the process, food irradiation perpetuates and even worsens
the unsustainable, unsanitary and inhumane conditions found on most
factory farms.

The Meatrix is a two-minute flash animation that spoofs the popular
Matrix movies. But instead of Keanu Reaves, the Meatrix stars a young
pig, Leo, who lives on a pleasant family farm ... he thinks. Leo is

approached by a wise and mysterious cow, Moopheus, who shows Leo the
truth about modern farming -- the truth about the Meatrix!

The film describes the problems with factory farming and offers viewers
a solution - the final page of the flash directs viewers to the Eat Well
Guide, a national online directory of sustainably-raised meat, which is
available at www.eatwellguide.org.

If you want to take action against food irradiation, visit

If you like the Meatrix and/or the Eat Well Guide, we only ask for one
thing in return - that you send them on to all your friends!

Enjoy the show!
