There are lots of things in our lives that cause animal, human or environmental harm. Some we already know about. Others we blindly ignore until an intrepid investigator breaks the story.
Even the most innovative or seemingly innocent products can have a murky past. Angry Birds loses its fun when you consider the Apple workers committing suicide in China. And Valentine’s Day becomes ever so slightly more nauseating when you learn that those chocolates you bought the mother of your children may have furthered the slave trade of other children in Africa (at least, that’s what I told her when I forgot to buy them).
Human actions always seem to have an impact somewhere in the world. All we can do is try to mitigate or fix the problem once we are made aware and move on better for it. Except, it seems, with meat production.
