Andrew Smith at The Conversation – Why it’s impossible to actually be a vegetarian:
For the record, I’ve been a “vegetarian” for about 20 years and nearly “vegan” for six. I’m not opposed to these eating practices. That isn’t my point. But I do think that many “vegetarians” and “vegans” could stand to pay closer attention to the experiences of the beings who we make our food.
I think we all need to pay more attention to our food and think about what it is that we are actually eating, all the way down the food chain and up. And think about whether that fits with our ethics and morals. If not, change it!
