Do you feel squeamish at the sight of slaughterhouses? Have you killed a live animal before for food? Do you enjoy eating exotic meats where animals are being eaten alive?

In a natural history perspective, humans are a pest on the Earth, devouring anything and everything on sight. We have become a top predator for about 5,000 years now or slightly more, which is not much in terms of Earth's history -- the dinosaurs, in comparison, were the dominant predators for 165 MILLION years. But I could not imagine our reign to last much longer. Already, we are poisoning the very food that we are eating. Pork, beef and chicken in the US are laden with hormones and antibiotics. Cattle feed with cow brain(!) is producing exotic diseases like mad cow disease. Chickens grow in its own manure (a salmonella bath) such that in the US it is not considered safe to touch raw chicken; it is illegal for restaurants not to practice the protocol against self-contamination (of cooked chicken by raw chicken in the same kitchen). In US food safety rules, raw chicken is considered toxic substance and is treated as such in the kitchen until cooked.
Fish is no better. Salmon is considered healthful until you consider that it has high level of mercury, lead and other heavy metals. Farmed salmon are fed any type of proteins that are not its natural food. Fishery resources are depleted anyway, so soon the Philippines will just be eating tilapia and other fast-growing bottom feeders.
Vegetables and fruits are no healthier either. They are sprayed with chemicals, pesticides, and waxes. The shiny apple is waxed. Strawberries need to be washed thoroughly of chemicals. Grown in monocultures, all fruits and vegetables survive because of heavy use of fertilizers and chemicals.

some animals are raised for slaughter and food, pushing for a cause to stop this is like trying to stop the rain from pouring,
the best is to reduce the suffering of an animal by giving the livestock animals a quick end.
as to domesticated animals, my sisters and I have been very supportive of PAWS and its causes to stop cruelty over domestic pet animals like dogs and cats.
these are animals which are aware of pain and suffering, so please help out by donating money to animal welfare institutions to have these animals neutered.
or be a good pet owner and take care of your animals the least.
a man's greatness is measured on how he/she treats the helpless.
be a hero to your community, rescue a maltreated animal in your area.

And what again is stopping us from eating our own kind aside from the law?

It was another documentary about a commercial chicken farm that made me a vegetarian. Do you know that it is cheaper to buy chicken here in the New York than in Manila? It was my taste for cheap chicken that caused so much suffering of God's creatures. And the chicken is fighting back. It lives in so much dirt that that only way it can live is to be fed daily with antibiotics. Growth hormones were also fed to make its legs huge. It is marinated throughout its life in antibiotics even before I can marinate it with soy sauce and vinegar. I decided that I will eat chicken again only if I can grow it myself organically.
