That's another thing more omnis should learn about. Slaughterhouses don't pluck happy, healthy families of pigs from the meadows and kill them. They don't chase wild chickens through the underbrush of local forests. The animals that are butchered for meat are sick and dying animals.<br><br><br><br>
When a person eats meat, they're eating the diseased flesh from one of these animals. Even if meat were healthy and all that people should consume, these animals would not be fit to be eaten.

Hm. I just had a thought that in the wild, animals who kill animals (like lions) usually eat diseased, unhealthy animals too. The healthy ones usually cant be caught. Interesting.</div>
Yes, but there are 2 things you have to remember:<br><br><br><br>
1- Animals in the wild don't have the same diseases that are caused by intensive factory farming.<br><br><br><br>
2- Animals in the wild don't feed their prey arsenic to get rid of said diseases and make them grow faster.<br><br><br><br>
I read this article to my roomie who is a "flexitarian" and only eats chicken, and she freaked out. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/devil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":devil:"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/veganpolice.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":notvegan:">
