It's a serious question. If you're talking about domestic animals' lives being saved by not eating them, you should know which animals are being saved and where they are currently living. I don't eat pigs, but I've never saved one single pig's life by not eating it. In the case of domestic animals, at best we may be preventing animal births and subsequent deaths. I think we like to believe we're saving animals' lives by not eating them, but I think this is very misleading and really in most cases "false advertising." I'd like to see this myth laid to rest. Nobody is adopting the animals you don't eat.
