    I love bacon.
    It's not worse. It's just all in our mind. It's like horse meat. Our family ate it in the late 1940s and early 1950s when beef was not available, or in short supply. But, "horse people" would have a conniption over eating horses.

    Sure, no denying its death. But certain groups would have you believe that the animals are tortured to death, when really, their lives are what could be considered barbaric. Especially for Pigs and Chickens, kept in small cages. Most of us don't think of that, especially when faced with the decision of $10 for two chicken breast or $5 for a pack of 10 thighs out of one of those "barbaric" corporate meat producers.
    Never argue with an idiot, he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. M.T.

    Well, I can tell you I feel the same way about dogs. They are for companionship, not eating and most of the world agrees. Buuuut, if it was a him or me situation . . .

    I agree.. all part of the same thing... horrible lives... spent eating... waiting to be killed... not law of the jungle any more where we spent most of our free time hunting them for food...

    Then again, the more we learn about plants and their emotions... it's going to be hard to find anything to eat that doesn't squeal...

    Same with that plane crash years ago in the mountains of South America. The survivors had to eat the dead passengers to survive.
