Today on Ellen Degeneres Jonathan Safran Foer was interviewed about his latest book Eating Animals. During the Q&A the subject of what's wrong with dairy and eggs was asked: I grimace at the line: "For those who have to eat turkeys"...
But for all that Mr. Foer neglected to say about the stolen calves, and the grieving mothers... Here's the rest of the story from Colleen Patrick-Goudreau of Compassionate Cooks.
While Eating Animals does not address the issue of Animal Rights - I still commend him for opening the topic up for the long overdue discussion that it deserves. People need to know that 99% of all the meat they are eating comes from factory farms. From there, they can make the decisions of what is an ethical alternative. As for me, I know the enslavement & slaughtering of animals is totally unnecessary and unacceptable.
On dairy and eggs... Please - Go Vegan
