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...

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.

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.

Kelsie, we're not gonna listen to your spins and
sugar-coating of the issue and/or walk lock-step to
the status quo of the Dark Ages.
I foresee your future generations, as vegans and vegetarians,
rejecting your meat-and-potatoes traditions and going against
the status quo of the Old West and the meat industry
will be extinct....

The original post stated, "Most recently undercover video footage exposed workers kicking and punching pigs at a Tyson supplier's facility, in contrast to Tyson's claims to be a leader in animal well-being." In my comment I was saying that not all Tyson's workers did that. I was defending Tyson, not saying that they all mistreat their animals. So, Anna, that answers your question. Nancy, I don't understand what you're implying. Linda, I was just giving you facts to back up my information other than my "opinion" on the issue.

Many illegals have very bad lives and living arrangements. They often owe their Coyotes a huge fee for getting them across, and they take it out on the animals.This has been shown in hidden videos, not sure if it it TYSON or not.

I have boycotted Tyson Foods years ago when I saw a video then of their cruelty. My husband, no thanks to me, is still a meat eater. Sadly, nothing's changed. I Believe many americans don't have the conscience necessary to question the fate of farm animals. We're dealing with a culture of Kill it/wrap it/let's eat! Never mind what took place when the animals were brought in for the killing. Somebody else did the dirty deed for us! I am so glad I became vegan 30 years ago. I just wish...

Originally I stopped purchasing TYSON products was because how the company treated their employees at least here in Wisconsin. I will never support Tyson for all of their inhumane acts. (Have you ever lived on a farm Kelsie Vaile?) I have! Dairy, Pig and grain. I say if you haven't expierienced actual farm life, you aren't getting all the facts from a book. However, thank you for your comments and insight.

Actually yes I have lived on a farm my whole entire life. My facts are not from any books. My facts are from experience working with animals as a young child and all throughout my life and now in college as I am studying Animal Science. In nothing that I commented was I bashing farming in any way possible. I am a huge supporter of animal agriculture. I also support Tyson and everything they do. The only thing that I said that may have been misinterpreted was that yes, some Tyson workers...

The only thing that I said that may have been misinterpreted was that yes, some Tyson workers SOMEWHERE in this country probably mistreat animals at some point. But that is because they are bad people who have yet to be caught doing so. I obviously do not think that this is a good think whatsoever but, like any other illegal things, it sometimes happens.

Billy, If you and I can do it , anyone can. The meat industry crumbling would be a dream come true for many animals worldwide. The world would be in utter chaos and crisis, but it may come to that anyway at the rate we are going.
