Animals in the billions-industry of meat aren't treated as living beings anymore, they have a life that starts with agonising pain and keep on being maltreated in a very extreme way. Please see the documentary: This Is Why Many People Don't Eat Meat:"From Farm To Fridge"! These images tell you more than a 1000 words. Listen to what makes us human, our basic feeling of loyalty to other living, feeling animals. Can you tell your children that Piglet of Winnie the Pooh is lying on his plate after a life of unhumane needless suffering?
