Shameful practices. How sad.

Marjon Duyvelaar Barreto

It's unfortunate that if we want to eat meat from animals that are healthy and treated well we have to pay so much more...shameful!

It has been a few years since we had any Tyson food because of the treatment of the animals.

I suggest people do some actual research on animal behavior, welfare, and husbandry. If you are eating chicken that claims to be "cage-free," guess what...ALL broiler chickens in this country are raised sans cage. Egg-laying hens can be raised "free-range" or in cages. Unless Tyson is beating their chickens, nothing that they are doing is wrong. They do extensive research on animal welfare and hire experts to decide each decision they make. Everything is strictly based on ACTUAL FACT rather...

I work at a Tyson's plant. There are USDA workers everywhere. If one of them or a member of management catches someone mistreating a chicken and if it is serious enough the employee is fired on the spot. Tyson chickens are fed mainly corn bought from area farmers.

When done properly, the raising and slaughtering of livestock animals is done humanely, without any pain, and with as little stress to the animal as possible. This is thanks to modern agricultural practices.

If you drive a car or ride a bike, the tires are very likely made with animal-based stearic acid. If you use shampoo or conditioner, they are typically made with more than a dozen animal-based components. Brush your teeth? Glycerin is made from animal and vegetable fats. As you can...

As you can see, animals are a necessity to society, and it's the agriculturalist's job to see that they are all treated with utmost dignity and respect. I personally believe that someone with a Ph.D. in Animal Behavior will know much more about "animal emotion" than a typical animal rights activist.

And to everyone who stoops low enough to personally attack someone who disagrees with you - unfortunately your argument is invalid. A true argument does not involve the personal degradation of either party.

I like your post, J...it seems this happens alot. If you don't agree with some people's opinions, way of life, idealologies...they make you out to be a unenlightened knuckle-dragging moron who needs to be led around by the nose. You don't want to eat meat? Fine, don't eat it...but I eat meat and I like it and that is nothing to you. I don't believe that animals have souls although I know they feel pain...and if someone is caught mistreating animals they should be proscecuted to the full extent of the law.

Jacquelyn Prestegaard and many others: Humanly raised and slaughtered? A complete oxymoron! Humanly raised! LOL and they got a belly rug before they slit their throats (and hopefully they died before they were skinned). Ya, homo sapiens, keep being naive and staying ignorant, keep lying to yourselves and to your kids to make you feel better, keep destroying this planet and massacring all living beings (included farm animals that are born to suffer and die in hell) ... this world has no...

Ya, homo sapiens, keep being naive and staying ignorant, keep lying to yourselves and to your kids to make you feel better, keep destroying this planet and massacring all living beings (included farm animals that are born to suffer and die in hell) ... this world has no chance at all anyhow. The only decent way of existence is to live a vegan lifestyle. End of a story. Get educated and open your eyes and think for yourselves. I as all other vegans live completely without dependence on any animal products and we do use a toothpaste. Common. This is where to start: http://www.pcrm.org/ and watch documentary called 'Earthlings' to understand the horrors of this planet. Enough is enough. And please stop trying to justify the human greed and selfishness. It is insulting and only people that you will appeal to are ignorant and self gratifying. No thinking individual will take such ideas seriously.

Just make sure you talk to your doctor first before you listen to someone on the internet telling you to change your diet drastically...

PS: Vegan/vegetarianism isn't healthy for everyone.

Kelly Shelton : Only the murderous and torturous meat-/dairy-/egg industry aligned people would tell someone to abstain from the healthiest diet on the planet. Are you one of them ?

Billy, you got it. People who align with this are cold-hearted , mindless, deniers, selfish enough to let other beings die for their palate and 15 minutes of taste. If they would have to eat raw flesh for the rest of their lives they wouldn't do it either. Of course some will now argue they would, but trust me they are lying for profit. The difference between a Zombie and a Vegan diet in taste are solely salt, pepper, herbs, etc. Once you taste a well-done Vegan meal, you will understand...

Kelly....ignore what they say. Just because we are from the same species doesn't mean we are all the same inside. You should always consult a Dr. before making any drastic changes in your diet. Patricia...I eat raw red meat and I LOVE it!!!!! Sushi is damn good too. Anything from the ocean I will eat raw. Yummmy!!!!!!!!! I would eat bugs if I had to. Unless you are growing your own veggies, you are consuming many different chemicals, so what is better? Guess your body was built to digest...

See we are all different. Have a happy day all. Do what is best for you as an individual.

You boycott Tyson and you might better resign yourself to eating vegetables since they own several other companies that you might not even know about. One of my favorite foods in the world is foie gras. It is goose(or sometimes duck) liver. The liver is fattened, enlarged and made better by sticking a tube down the animal's throat and force feeding the animal a diet that has been perfected over several centuries. Having tasted it and loving it the way I do, I pray God is not a goose.

I am a raw vegan and truly believe humans were meant to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Animals are creatures like us; they have eyes, can smell, think and have feelings. How would you feel if you knew you were the next meal? Animals were meant to be loved, not eaten. Regardless, they should be treated as you wish to be, humanely. ♥

Ryan, anything that is cooked kills all nutrients including protein. Protein is a fallacy brought on by the meat industry. If you'd research, there are protein in fruits and veggies, all that is needed by us humans. Name me one person that has died or been hospitalized due to the lack of protein? The milk industry is just as contrite. If something is dead, how can it produce life. Fruits and veggies are living when we eat them with seeds to plant for more life. They are full of nutrients....

I've researched this topic thoroughly. Give yourself a 30-day vegan diet and see how you feel and report back as to which of the two diets (eating meat vs a raw vegan/vegan/ vegetarian) made you feel better/healthier. ♥
