Label-Able: Cage Free

The labels on food today were standardized to make it easier for us to figure out what exactly we are putting into our bodies. The fact is, reading labels is still downright confusing so let FIT make you label-able.
Cage Free is a term we see a lot when buying eggs. Sounds healthy, but is it? To find out,

Cage Free basically means exactly how it sounds. The hens are not kept in cages, but that does not mean they are kept outside or even humanely. Not being caged means that the bird still can engage in its natural behavior, but there is no regulation or audit process for debeaking the birds and forced molting (through starvation).

Fit's Tip: When it comes to animal rights, Cage Free eggs are more humane than ordinary eggs, but when it comes to your health Cage Free eggs do not have any proven health benefits from those of ordinary eggs.
