"Free-range", "organic" or "cage-free" do not mean anything concrete welfare-wise.
Animal welfare is a very tricky thing because while it may improve the lives of a small percentage of animals, it allows the general public to feel a whole lot better about eating them. Unless we continue to promote veganism as the only solution, animals will continue to suffer in immense numbers.

I just think it's great to have a forum where these discussions can happen without omni's giving us the evil eye grin.gif At least we know everyone here is pretty much on the same page. Debate is a very healthy way to get to the heart of the issues. Thanks for sharing guys.
