Unfortunately, anyone who eats meat from a factory farm is passively contributing to animal cruelty or in the least supporting it. the show Bones just
had an excallent episode about factory farms, I think really helped to raise some awareness to the viewers at what is really going on behind the
scenes, showing two different views on it. Society has made animal cruelty illegal unless it is within factory farms. So as long as the masses believe
they cannot stop eating it, it will be a business that thrives-creating pollution, health concerns, and even peaking water levels. Really if it
doesn't come down to animal cruelty for some folks, then pollution, disease, and our health should be some cause for concern. The only fact I'll
bring up, b/c most people don't realize this, is that the animals are fed an enormous amount of anti oxidants. What happens when your body gets
slowly used to a drug? It becomes inaffective. You consume antioxidants on a daily basis through the meat and it will take so much more effort to
fight off an infection or to get drugs that really work well.
I would never tell people to become vegetarian, that's a decision that has to be made from within, when the hearts ready to give up something we've
been eating since birth. It's rough to change habits. But for those who are willing to try or want to cut back on consumption-schneiders does offer
meatless products made in a meat free facility. The chik'n tastes like real chicken nuggets-great with honey, but there's no trans fats and no
cholestoral. It's very healthy.
There's actually a lot of places that are openely cruel to animals due to people's need to buy or be entertained. Circuses, road side zoos, puppy
mills just to name a few. Only the buyers can do anything, we do have the power.
