We treat domestic animals, particularly chickens and pigs with extreme cruelty. If we treated humans that way, we would call it torture. If you don’t want to torture animals, what can you do about it?

  1. Become a vegetarian.
  2. Pay farmers to treat animals ethically. Buy only free-range eggs and meat. Since these products are more expensive, you may have to cut down your consumption.
  3. Cut down on your factory meat consumption.
  4. Shift to eating less sentient meat. Absolutely no whales. Try fish, lobsters, clams, oysters.
  5. Make no changes to your behaviour.

In China, they would never slap down an 226.80 grams (8 oz) slab of meat in front of you. They cut it into small pieces as use it as a condiment. This makes it go a lot further.
