Overmedicated meat

I can’t tell you that you shouldn’t eat meat. But if you do, I urge you to eat better quality meat from responsibly raised, properly fed animals (organic, for example). Yes, it’s more expensive and harder to find. But meat shouldn’t be cheap. If you need to be frugal, I respect that. But industrial farmed, subsidized, overmedicated meat isn’t worth the price — in any sense. Animal suffering and death aside.. think about the human lives that these livestock policies destroy: farmworkers, consumers, children. Please consider spending more, less often, for better food and a healthier food chain.
