I believe animals have incredible intrinsic value. While much of society looks at them as only food, I look at them as creatures with physical feeling, instinctive fear and comfort, and most importantly a part of the earth.
As I said in my title. I love bacon (typically turkey bacon), but the manner in which animals are treated today makes me sick. It has forced my wife and I to only purchase organic, grass-fed, or cage free products.
The video below struck me as I watched humans experience what farm factory pigs do each day. By the end of this clip your view on what you eat might change.
How do we end this? Look for the labels “USDA Organic” or “Grass Fed” or “Cage-Free” on your products. Do not fall for unregulated terms like “All Natural” which do not speak to how the animal was fed, raised, or slaughtered. Let's end this inhumane era of animal treatment. Are you with me?
