Animal Welfare Act Inadequate for Farm Animals
APRIL 13, 2009
While a nationwide vegan or vegetarian lifestyle change is highly unlikely, the abuse can be maintained through increased government regulation. This is really interesting. How many people know this about the Animal Welfare Act? I certainly didn't. No wonder there is so much "farm" animal abuse out there. The only cool thing is that Gene Bauer's views on the meat industry are so similar to those expressed on this blog a few weeks ago. Yay!!!)

I suspect that many regular readers of Animal Ethics are already vegetarians. That's because those who read Animal Ethics with regularity know that there are many compelling reasons to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle. There are environmental reasons to go vegetarian: The production of animal-derived foods is implicated in every major environmental problem. a vegetarian diet is associated with a lower risk of death from ischemic heart disease.
