As a longtime vegetarian, I applaud Compassionate Action for Animals for their weeklong celebration of going veg (“Student group: go vegetarian for a week,” Sept. 28). Like millions of other Americans, my decision to stop eating animals was a direct result of discovering the cruel and inhumane conditions inside today’s massive factory farms and slaughterhouses.
More than 10 billion land animals are raised and killed for food every year in the United States alone. Many suffer painful mutilations, such as debeaking and castration, without any painkillers. Every time each of us chooses a vegetarian meal, we’re making a difference for animals.
Happily, as vegetarian eating has grown in popularity, it is easier than ever to find delicious animal friendly foods. To keep your pledge going, check out TryVeg.com for a free Vegetarian Starter Guide.
