but were it not for mankind, there would be less than 1% of the total number of chickens, pigs and cattle that there presently are on this planet. They are a product of our civilization and there is no reason for us not to benefit from their existence.

One thing that interests me is the slow cooking method preserves proteins so as not to denature them, which is important in avoiding the misfolding of amyloid proteins. I am convinced that many cases of Alzheimer's in humans are really a prion disease and would be avoidable if we took greater care in the slaughtering and preparing of our meat.
Chickens in their domestic form have no place in nature. Were we to set them all free, they would rapidly go the way of the dodo, and there is no island on earth large enough to insulate them from all of earth's varied predators.
You'll never be truly satisfied in this lifetime if you turn against your inherent nature.
I have noticed a trend; however, the more time, effort and money I put into food, generally the happier and healthier I am in every other area of my life.
