Truth Behind the Labels: How Meat Eaters Can Find Out if Their Dinner Was Really Humanely Raised
Truth Behind the Labels: How Meat Eaters Can Find Out if Their Dinner Was Really Humanely Raised | Food | AlterNet
This article was fascinating to me. As a vegan, I don't believe animals should be eaten or worn, but I understand that not everybody shares my feelings.
When I ate meat, I avoided eating animals that I thought were cute (see above pig!) and ate a lot of fish and chicken. Would I have eaten more meat if the producer promised me that the animal was getting properly cared for? Possibly.
I don't see this as a good thing. To me, it seems unlikely that factory farms will be replaced with "happy" farms raising "happy" meat. The only thing the "humane" label might do, is encourage people to eat different animals.
I'd love to hear your thought on this topic, so please comment!
