People have to be willing to pay a little more for their food. Cheap food is causing everything to boil down to a few producers who can make it cheap. It's the one thing we need to survive but the first thing that's complained about as far as cost. I don't see things improving much in my lifetime, though there seems to have been a shift and a desire of younger folks to change stuff, but boy it's been really messed up.
I come from a farming background so I know how it all goes down. It's important for folks to have the correct information about stuff, I read a lot of misinformation meant to scare people. My vegan brother is convinced that all eggs are baby chickens, no matter how I explain it.
Yup, research on animals is never justified. I think one day, probably soon, all of the small farms will be drowned out by a few huge factory farms. Mass producing meat, dairy, eggs, fruit, veg etc... Sad, but unless people wake up to reality I don't see that changing. Even if a chicken egg is fertile it's not a baby chick yet, a lot of vegans act as if you're eating a chick alive or something. un-fertilized eggs are just chicken periods, and even fertile eggs are okay to eat because the embryo won't develop if the eggs are refrigerated. I know you probably know that, I just wanted to say something because I'm fed up of extreme vegans spreading misinformation too. And they always seem to go after the wrong people, people like us who actually care about where our food comes from. but just because we eat eggs they'd be complaining. Obesity is on the rise, our foods are full of GMO and other crap, fruit and veg are sprayed with chemicals to make them grow faster and bigger, which kills off insects. Man, the world is so messed up, makes me so sad.
