A lot of people out there are against animal cruelty. I’m right there with them. Well, that is until they say that in order to be kind to animals we should stop eating them and become vegan. That’s where they lose me.

As I’ve said many times, humans are omnivores, not herbivores. It’s not healthy or natural for us to eat nothing put plants. If that’s what they want to do it’s their business, but I’m going to keep eating animals. I don’t think becoming vegan is going to stop animal cruelty in the food industry because there’s no way that the whole world, or even the whole United States, is going to go vegan. People like their tasty animal flesh.

Personally, I think we should be holding the farms and food industry accountable for the way they treat animals. We should learn who’s doing what, and crack down on anyone who engages in unethical treatment of their livestock. That would do more than trying to tell people they need to stop eating meat.

I signed a petition just today to get Domino’s to stop using gestation crates for their pigs. I’ve signed many others like it. As natural humans, we should keep meat in our diet, but we need to care more about how those animals are treated. It is completely possible to give the animals a better standard of life and kill them quickly with little or no pain. We need to make the food producers care about those animals. Right now all they care about is their bottom line.

By the way, I know that there are other reasons people become vegan, like the hormones in meat. I hate to tell them, but there are dangerous things in their precious organic fruits and veggies too. I signed another petition today in regards to the antibiotics used in so-called organic produce. That stuff is partly responsible for the antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria that have been killing people. So your plant life isn’t as safe as you think it is either.

How do you feel about all this? Do you think we should hold meat producers accountable for how they treat livestock?
