“Perhaps a better title would be "Is it cool to be vapid, vain and lack a conscience?" Because that's what separates people who wear fur from the rest of the population. If you don't care about the suffering of animals trapped and often skinned alive so you can look like a fashion victim, then you may think fur is cool.”

“This is a fantastic development for human health, the environment, and of course, animal welfare.

There are two myths meat industry apologists are attempting to spread here that need debunking:

#1 These products use GMOs. *False* Beyond Eggs does NOT use GMOs, and in fact do not use corn or soy. Please do your research before making or repeating that claim.

#2 Beyond Eggs is a "processed" food. Again, *False* Beyond eggs does not use chemicals and is made from sorghum and other plants - nothing artificial. No different than using a standard recipe in a healthy cookbook.

If you want to eat supermarket eggs and don't care about the terrible suffering of battery cage hens, just admit that. Stop trying to wrap it up in all sorts of false justifications.”

10 Common Food Terms That Have Lost All Meaning

10 Common Food Terms That Have Lost All Meaning

“The problem with the term sustainable is the lack of measure. It is more sustainable to raise mostly produce (smaller carbon footprint), and then, produce that can be grown without pesticides, fungicides, fertilizers and irrigation. And livestock that is raised completely on pasture / hay, with principles such as multi-species pasture rotation employed. It's complex, and can say as a small farmer in a rural area that many of my local fellow farmers and farming organizations, which claim sustainability, actually are not.

And don't get me started on the elevation of the term 'local' which doesn't guarantee sustainable or humane.”

“I've always felt the term 'local' is somewhat meaningless. It doesn't mean it's any more sustainable and humane. Factory farms are 'local' to lots of people. Two restaurants near me proudly identify their menu items coming from Hudson Valley Foie Gras (which is local), and meanwhile the place is a factory farm known for animal cruelty and polluting the environment!”

“I wonder how many posters are actually acquainted with hunters? I live in a rural area surrounded by state forest that is accessible to hunters. And I know lots of them.

The truth is that the majority of hunters use the meat. And yes, it's better than buying factory-farmed pork or beef, however, most of these hunters do that in large quantities when they don't have venison. So not sure I would give them a whole lot of credit. They're not hunting because they're concerned about seeking alternatives to factory farmed meat. They're hunting because it's a sporting tradition most believe confirms their masculinity. And for many of my local hunting acquaintances - it's a fun opportunity to take time off work and sit in the woods drinking beer all day with the boys.”

“What was missed in the 97% compliance is that most sored horses go undetected, because they are trained not to flinch when palpitated. If you watch the video, you will see horses being hit in the head with a piece of wood. That's how they train them not to flinch for inspectors.
