Oh boy..don't get me going here...I'm not a vegetarian, but we need to appreciate and care better for these animals that are sacrificed for our gluttony. I try to buy as much as I can afford that is not factory farmed...but it's difficult. I buy much less meat and dairy products than I used to..that is for sure. As consumers, we can have a huge impact and demand better and more humane farm practices...for our own health!

Check out HSUS.org any time about livestock.

I can do it!!
