This is a disturbing movie.  It is not a pleasant experience.

I seriously doubt that I will ever be a vegan because I believe that it is just as natural for humans to eat meat as it is for lions to eat gazelles.  However, in learning about how our health relates to the quality and well being of the food we eat I have determined that I can only eat meat or other animal products that I have raised myself or from a local farmer that I personally know so that I can see how the animals were cared for and slaughtered. 

This movie did not change my position but rather it reinforced my belief that if I am to consume animal products I MUST be a caring and responsible guardian for these animals.  I also believe that it is my responsibility to try to find a way to educate people to be caring and mindful of the way that we treat our fellow animals that provide us with food.

The entire movie is free to watch at http://www.earthlings.com/ Do not watch this movie if you are going to be offended by some REALLY violent and graphic scenes of animals being prepared for human consumption.
