I am currently reading "Vegan, the New Ethics of Eating" by Erik Marcus. Up until now, I have not been able to read the sections about slaughter house and general conditions of factory farm animals. Yesterday I forced myself to. Everyone should make themselves aware of the horrors involved in our food productions.
i lived in texas where we raised chickens and rabbits. i didnt do the killing but i did help dress them out. soooooo gross. what was i thinking????? at least they were well cared for and organic by my own standards back in the late 1970s.
i lived outside philadelphia for a time and had to drive by a slaughterhouse to get to a small mennonite grocery store i shopped at. if the cows were in the trucks, screaming, we ate vegetarian for that week. but soon went back to being carnivores.
now i have been a vegetarian off and on for years and completely for the past 1-2 years. my doctor took me off my blood pressure meds within a month of stopping. hows that for proof that meat of any kind is not good for your body. i ate chicken off and on for awhile last year because i had a craving for it. i got sick. not worth it.
