Bravo for you! Such a noble and kind human thing to do.

Your story also gives me hope and lifted my spirits.

Thank you.

That still doesn't make it right.

Nobody should be "ground up alive" nobody.

Wrong wrong wrong.

If "what goes around comes around" is true we as a species are in deep doo doo.

If a couple of male chicks are hatched and they are instantly ground up to be re-fed to our food, than I am ok with that.


Hm, wasn't that sort of thing what started mad Cows disease ?




If you are afraid of little chicks feelings being hurt by going into a meat grinder just remember that the little chicks death is most likely instant and suffering is kept to a microsecond of time.


I just tried very hard to imagine what it would fell like being put through a meat grinder, a microsecond seemed equally as horrific as a microhour.

All those who have no problem with how these chicks meet their death, either have no empathy with another living creature, or a very high pain threshold.

The means does not always justify the ends.

Personally I would like to see a government that bans the eating of all animals. You would think in a 1st world nation that these atrocities would be hugely illegal. But they don't give a damn. So it's up to us to change things and force that change upon them.


I do not think that animals should be tortured to death. However, I do not believe that meat eating should be banned. Some people need to eat meat for the protein.

I agree with you that meat eating should not be banned. But "some people need to eat meat for the protein". Everyone NEEDS protein. Everyone NEEDS amino acids to build protein. You can get those things from other sources. You don't NEED to eat meat to survive.

With that being said, I am vegan...but again, I don't believe meat eating should be banned.

I have multiple autoimmune diseases and a lot of foods cause me to bleed internally if I eat them. One of the few things I can eat is chicken. I often crave vegetables, but if I eat too many of them I bleed. If I eat some fruits, my insides bleed. I have to eat chicken for protein. There aren't many foods safe for me to eat.

There are other sources of protein ya know.

Some are better for you(no hormones,etc)and easier to digest than meat.


One-half cup of beans contains as much protein as 3 ounces of broiled steak. Plus, these nutritious nuggets are loaded with fiber to keep you feeling full for hours.

www.webmd.com...


It is very easy for a vegan diet to meet the recommendations for protein, as long as calorie intake is adequte...
Some Americans are obsessed with protein. Vegans are bombarded with questions about where they get their protein. Athletes used to eat thick steaks before competition because they thought it would improve their performance. Protein supplements are sold at health food stores. This concern about protein is misplaced. Although protein is certainly an essential nutrient which plays many key roles in the way our bodies function, we do not need huge quantities of it. In reality, we need small amounts of protein. Only one calorie out of every ten we take in needs to come from protein 1. Athletes do not need much more protein than the general public 2. Protein supplements are expensive, unnecessary, and even harmful for some people.

Also on this page is a list of foods and their protein content.
Personally, I think sprouts are a great way to go!

Well, like a buddy of mine said recently; when the economy crashes, all of these slaughterhouses, food processors, pharmaceutical companies, etc. will be out of business or not long after.

Mass starvation, war, and anarchy will follow unfortunately.


Well, your Buddy's a bundle of laughs!


The fact is that in some countries the drive for cheap food has led to its over-industrialisation. In some countries there are low animal welfare regulations and animal husbandry practice.

However, as sad as it may sound, the crushing of the chicks is probably a quick and efficient was to kill them. One minute you are alive and the next you are (er) dead. I imagine very little pain.

If people don't like this, then they don't need to turn veggie or vegan, they just need to work out where there food comes from and not buy stuff which is untraceable or from a source which can't be "trusted".

In other words - if you don't like what you see then make sure you don't support it by buying the produce. If you cannot trace it or it is not "farm assured" then don't buy it. Next time you are in a supermarket ask where the meat comes from and see what happens! Go and make friends with a local butcher because he should know where his meat comes from - if he is any good.

I think some western countries are fairly backward. I would cite the overuse of growth hormones in the US beef industry and the over-intensive US pork industry, compared to (say) the UK or most European nations.

In general, I would say that animals are treated poorly in most poor and developing countries. In advanced nations (of the west) animals are treated better but there is much work to do - look to your own country to drive improvement and stop buying crap food.

Regards

edit to add... A bit off topic, so let's not pursue this one, but how many of the people shocked by animal cruelty keep cats? The biggest slayer of wildlife bar none! Just a thought.
