Industry hides facts about flesh foods

A July 29 article regarding pigs being intelligent and cows and chickens being sensitive and endearing creatures was indisputable.

Lamentably, the world's meat moguls, sausage czars and poultry profiteers do not want the populace to know that kind animals are cruelly raised and slaughtered for their meat.

They also don't want people to realize that raising and killing these helpless animals for food causes massive global warming, deforestation. water shortages, environmental toxicity and air, water and land pollution.

We must eschew these flesh-foods and embrace vegetarianism as a moral, spiritual, ecological and planetary imperative.
