"Caged hens are a sad reality of modern-day farming. In fact, I don't think it can even be referred to as "farming" as we understand it, because everything about it is horrendous. Who on earth dreamed the idea up?"

—Jamie Oliver
Jamie at Home: Cook Your Way to the Good Life

"We believe animals should not be reared in factory farms."

—Compassion in World Farming

"Animals can communicate quite well. And they do. And generally speaking, they are ignored."

—Alice Walker

"Factory farming is the single biggest cause of animal cruelty."

—WSPA website

“95 percent of the animals slaughtered each year do not receive protection under the federal Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. And, while each state has its own animal cruelty code, most states exempt common farming practices, no matter how abusive.”

—The Humane Society of the United States

"Many good reasons exist to moderate our eating habits to semivegetarian practice. These reasons should count with all of us, and we must decide for ourselves what sort of balance is possible in our own lives."

—Kathryn Paxton George, Professor of Philosophy

It's Time to Talk About It.

February 20-26 is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week

NEDA Questions PSA from NEDA on Vimeo.

"Become Vegetarin [sic] or Vegan if you aren't already -- it'll cut the harmful fats straight out of your diet and make your family think of you as the health freak."

The above quote or "tip" was copied directly from a "pro-anorexia" website. Indeed, it's not uncommon for a person with an eating disorder to try and "hide" her illness by identifying as a vegan or vegetarian.

LIVING WITH CONVICTION

By Wendy Altschuler

I grew up in a meat-eating family in Montana. My father was a hunter, my friends' fathers were hunters, and nearly every boy (and some girls) I knew went through some form of Hunter Safety course so that they could enter into the sport of hunting. It was not uncommon to see a killed deer strapped to the roof of a truck driving down Main St. or dead animal legs sticking up in the air and over the side of a vehicle. Meat eating was, in many ways, a source of pride for my family. It symbolized my father’s ability to provide for his family by putting meat on the table.

DID YOU KNOW?

There are 17 known species of penguins.


photo: National Geographic

Unlike other birds, penguins have solid, not hollow, bones that help them stay underwater.

While the females hunt, male emperor penguins rest their eggs on their feet so the eggs don't touch the ice.

The smallest penguin species weighs about 2 pounds and measures 16 inches tall, while the largest weighs 60-90 pounds and stands almost 4 feet tall.
