Falling off the vegetarian wagon

Attached to the debate over concentrated animal feeding operations and conditions at slaughterhouses is the growing trend of reduced-meat or meat-free diets.

We’ve once again reach the point in the cycle where a vegetarian diet is being advocated from a moral viewpoint about sustainability and doing as little harm as possible to the environment and our fellow creatures. Beth Mendenhall, a senior at Kansas State University, makes that point in a recent editorial in the K-State Collegian:

Bacon is delicious. I know it, you know it, even the pigs probably know it. Despite its tastiness, however, eating meat is bad for the environment and human health and causes billions of animals to suffer needlessly.
