Massachusetts' Battle over "Cage Free" Eggs In November, voters in Massachusetts will be asked whether the state should ban the sale of eggs, pork products or veal from animals that are too tightly confined within cages. If the ballot measure passes it would have far reaching consequences for the egg industry both in Massachusetts and several other states. It would also mark a big win for the cagefree egg movement. But are cagefree eggs really more humane for animals or healthier for humans? We hear more from environmental journalist Zack Colman, and Chris Green, Executive Director of the Animal Law and Policy Program at Harvard Law School.

León Krauze guest hosts.
