    So if meat is no longer murder, is it ok to eat?

    It's okay especially if it's going to goto waste.
    But it's just a habit like tv or coffee-people are rarely aware of it as a drug.

    Yes, we can get all the nutrients we need from other scources, iron being one of the major problem areas.

    I'm a vegetarian myself and, yes, I do think the rest of society should be vegetarian.

    As for synthetic meat, I have no ethical objection but I would be wary about consumption. The food is untested and it is not known how it will interact with the body.

    I dont know man, there's a lot of money out there for slaughtering animals. A LOT. I would be surprised if it wern't corrupt like a lot of other capitalist based crap.
    edit: I meant the truth about synthetic meat and the meat industry in general.

    Yes, I am quite horrified at the treatment of cattle we import into Australia from places like Indonesia. The meat industry is only concerned for profit-margins. Ethical dilemmas are no trouble to them.

    Conrau, we export meat into Indonesia - we do not get meat from there mate.

    The issue was how (some of) the abbatoirs there killed the animals we sent there.

    Cheers

    Ever heard of "100%Australian Beef"? which supplies food to McDonalds,of other places, is actually the name for an Inodinesean Beef Company.

    Is that true?

    no, the whole yuminess of the meat comes from the tears of the slaughtered cow/pig/chikin.


    if there is no suffering, the meat is useless.

    its interesting, but for some people they just dont like the texture of meat. Also for
    others, the fact that it has as its basis animal cells may be enough to dissuade them.
    Some people dont eat animal fats of any description, even in confectionery and stuff.

    In my wife's country when one goes to buy a chicken, one picks it out from a cage, the
    butcher then proceeds to cut its head off with a large knife. He puts it in a stone box
    immediately afterwards so that the blood drains. He then very dexterously skins and
    cuts it up and hands it to you in a bag, still warm. I suspect if many had to buy their
    chicken this way, they may become vegetarians.
