Ok, so I am listening to that book The Way We Eat: Why Our Food Choices Matter by Peter Singer and Jim Mason in audio format at work. This book is insane. These people will stop at nothing until we are all vegans who grow our own food in the backyard and forage. Don’t get me wrong, I am a vegetarian and I love animals. I don’t think animals should be subjected to the things they describe in this book. I am also very pro-environment, obviously. But seriously, these people are crazy.
This is a direct quote regarding why it is terribly wrong to ever eat shrimp or any fish:
“the suffering for every plate of shrimp could be more than that of a single, larger animal”
I was actually planning on making shrimp for dinner yesterday evening. When I heard that, I told Christian, “We will be having Plates of Suffering tonight for dinner”.
