This is an issue I think about quite a lot. I have a great deal of love and respect for animals. I don't even want to kill spiders. We relocate them if we have to. I respect every animal's right to live.

But I do eat meat.

Do you consider being vegetarian? Do you respect the animal but understand it has to die to feed you? Do you seek out "human" food sources vs "painful to the animal" food sources?

I would just bet you meant "humain" food sources. I am pretty sure we have laws about "human" food sources.

I have always struggled with eating meat. When I was a very young child I always disliked the smell, look, thought, taste (of most). I have always loved animals and could never understand why we ate them - just struck me as truly disgusting. I remember my mother cooking chicken and seeing the blood, fat, muscles, skin - yuck!
As I got older and lived on my own I stopped buying & cooking meat, only ate it out once in awhile at restaurants, mostly chicken or hamburgers. After more time & thought I stopped eating it altogether. There really is no need to eat it. There are other sources of food & protein available. Every food contains some amount of protein, except a few fruits & alcohol.
Now I struggle with going completely Vegan. grin
Just my opinion, but I don't believe there is a truly humane meat option. You still have to raise the animal for food, take it from it's family, then kill it to consume it.
If you are on the fence, I highly recommend watching Meet Your Meat.

i agree with all, but i beleive that we can eat meat or not!

i have nothing wrong with a vegitarian but i personaly will not
i love animals actully i want to become a zoooligist, i like them that much!!

but we were put in charge since the beggining of earth to have dominion over the animals GOD made animals for company and food
i agree we have to watch what we eat but frankly i don't beleive chickens/pigs/cows are becoming extinct.... ans remember we aren't throwing away perfectly good bones 150-100 years ago indians would use every part of the body to make stuff

i believe it's not bad but when we are killing vidle animals
it's hard to explane and i think someone will agree with me on that if anybody has i ideas that i can't explain

please speak
