If you are a vegetarian or vegan, why?
I recently eliminated meat from my diet for environmental and ethical reasons. My qualms were with the undignified and opaque structure of our food system. I had misgivings about the safety of the meat supply and the unethical way the corporations treated workers and public resources before I saw the documentary Food Inc., but once I watched that movie, I was done. I will no longer eat meat unless I know for sure it was raised under conditions that treat the land, animal, and people with honesty and respect.
