How hospice became big business. A new investigation in The New Yorker reveals an industry that at times puts profits before patients.
This month, California enacted a law requiring eggs and some meat producers to keep their animals in larger cages. Similar regulations exist in nine other states, but this law is expected to have far-reaching effects because it applies to eggs raised outside of California. Animal rights activists say the California law is the most significant animal welfare reform in recent history. But the rules have being challenged in the courts. And farmers and agricultural economists argue it will lead to an increase in egg prices. Join Diane and a panel of guests for a discussion on what these new laws mean for food prices, farmers and how animals are raised.
