for your information, we had a professionally tested by a certified inspector, it was clear of any contaminants, only the water was very hard and recommended a water softener. we had the water tested in the first place was because there has been a lot of oil drilling in the area and we were more concerned about that affecting our water then the feed lots down the road (they aren't that close ... but we also don't know how long the aquifer that supplies our well runs for). perhaps the regulations that govern feedlots in your area are not as strict as they are here.If you've seen what goes on in the commercial meat industry and are comfortable with it for your own diet, super. But you can't understand at all how someone else can see the same thing and NOT be comfortable with it in their diet and may choose to "chastise" it? People can have varying opinions and if you are comfortable with your choices it shouldn't matter to you what other people say.
I do hope you've had your well tested for antibiotic runoff and e.coli.
but to insinuate that ALL feedlots, dairies, and chicken farms are the same if not an accurate statement.
