Human beings are designed to eat meat and veggies (omnivores).
We have teeth that are designed to rip and tear flesh as well as grind up plant matter.
We have a digestive system designed to digest and utilize proteins and nutrients found in meat and veggies.

Who am I to go against evolution/God's design/insert whatever religious theory for our existence here.

Now stop your philosophizing and pass the fried chicken

It doesn't seem right to eat meat - especially meat from commercial farms - but we need meat. We should all eat free range meat, and less of it.

I agree...but unfortunately there are no regulations in the US that say they must put a big 'ol sticker on the meat saying 'mass-murdered beef' vs 'free range meat'. Maybe it's different in Canada. Can we buy free range beef from Canada over the internet?... you know, like we do with meds?

I don't trust the regulations in Canada either. I drive out to the Interior once in a while to buy meat, and I freeze it. It's a five hour drive, but my uncle lives out there and he knows where the meat is coming from. Being considerate of the world can be a pain in the a$$.
hmmm... would you really want to buy free range meat over the internet???

Free range opens up another can of worms IMO. If an animal is happy wandering around a natural habitat, eating good food and feeling the sun on its face, is it not a greater cruelty to take its life, than to kill an animal kept in miserable conditions with no quality of life to begin with. Farmed cattle are released from bondage, free range ripped from their homes. Free range habitat, is created at the expense of forest, marshland, woodland, fenland etc. thus having a negative impact on the bio-diversity of the ecosystem it affects. (livestock farming lead to extinction of the wolf in Britain, but the cattle were well cared for)

Eating a creature always causes suffering, free range should not ease your concience, accepting the nature of the act is the only peace.

Thats true Cord, good point. how is it different? There are probably tons of heatbreak scenarios. another extreme would be a little girl on the farm, feeding the chickens everyday and giving names like 'prissy' to them that she has made comfy nests and a little hat for...2 months later and 1000 miles away sits a boy eating shake-n-baked nuggets, bites halfway thru a tiny blue hat.

I think the phrase 'ignorance is bliss' was specifically created for these types of scenarios.
