Yes, she did mention the beef thing several times, and she was careful, but the suffering mentioned was for every animal (not just cows), which Kathry Freston was trying to point out. Now, I love Oprah, but I was a little pissed when she interrupted her to say cruelty is not involved...that they do not suffer because Cargill said so. BS!!! I've never known her to be biased but she was in this segment. And OMG, Lisa Ling was ridiculous! She had this stupid-ass grin on her face like she was diggin on watching cows get their brains knocked out. She seemed so proud of the humane (are you kidding me?) way the animals were treated.
Yes, I have seen Food Inc. I get so frustrated on how money and power can cover up any atrocity. It makes me more determined than ever to do my part to see that no living creature suffers by my hand. I won't have any part of it.
I have forced myself to watch, read, listen and learn horrible stuff, so that I can be informed and make better choices. I learn something new everyday. I am beyond the PETA stuff, because I have watched all of that that I can take, but it was worthwhile because it opened by eyes.
Sorry to ramble on and on, but I am so passionate about this issue. I just cannot play any part in this anymore. I am now moving towards my clothing, shoes, handbags, household supplies, products, make-up, etc., that involve any kind of cruelty/death to an animal. I own a log cabin and so now I am even looking at my living environment. It is most definitely a process. One that is difficult to accomplish overnight. But the intention is there and I will be where I want to be some day.
