Link of the day: Carnivore

fungrimfungrim

I’m a meat-eater. Never been anything else. I did have a vegetarian girlfriend once. The vegetarian and the carnivore. Didn’t last. I will try to buy ecologically sound meat though. Which for example has me worried a bit about tuna. And, if there existed a substitute I’d be all for it.So… Perhaps it time for me to donate a bit to some of those who are actually trying to come up with something new.

Despite its popularity, meat — both in its production and in its consumption — has a number of adverse effects on human health, environmental quality, and animal welfare. These include: diseases associated with the over-consumption of animal fats; meat-borne pathogens and contaminants; antibiotic-resistant bacteria due to the routine use of antibiotics in livestock; inefficient use of resources in cycling grains and water through animals to produce protein; soil, air, and water pollution from farm animal wastes; and inhumane treatment of farm animals. As meat consumption continues to increase, worldwide, these problems are now a global concern.

I’m actually all for inhumane treatment of animals 😉 Cruelty though…
