    No but I heard about it. Believe me I have said this before, I am all for the humane treatment of animals, I don't want to see anything suffer, be mistreated, etc. But in reality It is my belief that it is almost impossible to become true Vegan/Vegetarian without the use of some sort of animal by product. To be honest I am so very happy that industry has found a use for so much that could be just thrown into waste fields.


    see if she can... go without all these products for a week!

    I think she did a good job of presenting it and also making those city slickers aware of where their meat comes from. I do beleive I will continue raising and buying my meat from local farmers.

    I stopped on the list at "cretinism" as a product of the thyroid. Cretinism is a condition of severely stunted physical and mental growth due to untreated congenital deficiency of thyroid hormones, not a product. I can live without cretinism, I'm sure, LOL, though some may have called me a cretin in the past.
