On and off, I’d been a vegetarian for couple times in the last ten years. Nonetheless, I’m not considering myself a vegetarian at all. After all, I’m eating meat just like everyone else when I’m not on a vegetarian diet. For your information, a vegetarian diet does allow the eating of eggs. So, a vegetarian diet is definitely less strict than a vegan diet. Anyhow, when we’re eating meat, we don’t usually know how hard it would take for the meat to be prepared before it could be packaged up so it could be sold in store and landed on our plate.
As China and the United States are preparing for a trade war, pork and various meats could be more expensive and scarce for a short period of time. I think the supply and the demand factor will come into play eventually — thus once scarce and expensive stuff would become cheap and plentiful. As trade war threats between the United States and China are heating up, I suddenly feel more aware of pork and pig as the topic of pig farmers get hurt by a trade war with China becomes more prominent on TV and headlines.
From being more aware of pork and pig, I ventured onto YouTube and found couple interesting videos on how pigs are being slaughtered for food. As a curious human being, I want to know many things, and so I don’t feel ashamed for watching these videos. Regardless, I do feel bad and sad to see so many pigs get slaughtered, but I do have a common sense of being a human and knowing that we humans eat meat! Furthermore, I’m not a hypocrite and so I’m not against or being hateful at anyone for taking great effort in preparing meat (in a humane way) as food for us humans!
Warning! Do not watch the videos below if you fear blood and hate to see animals get slaughtered!
and you can find plenty more of these videos on YouTube!
