- Feb 1, 2008Greetings,
Please define 'modern'. If you mean the factory farm, then it has been
in production for many years and is considered the tried, true, old
fashioned way of farming.
If you mean the new, modern, feed the soil not the plants, natural diets
for all, then you are very far off the mark. Many people that are
raising animals today do so for spiritual values, not greed.
There are many metabolic types of humans, and some can not survive on a
vegetarian diet, let alone a vegan diet. To them, that is very poor
health. This is especially true of people with very northern heredity,
from cultures that traditionally only ate meat.
There is a real joy in healing the land, saving animals that are on the
endangered species list and providing good, healthy natural food for
people who appreciate it. No greed involved.
