      [opinion from Register-Guard]

      On Oct. 2, more than 20 countries and 400 communities throughout the
      50 states will observe World Farm Animals Day. Oct. 2 is also the
      birthday of Mahatma Gandhi, one of the world's greatest champions of
      peace.

      On this day, according to the World Farm Animals Day Website, "caring
      people are conscience-bound to mourn and moralize the pointless
      suffering and death of 50 billion cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens and
      other innocent, sentient animals in the world's factory farms and
      slaughterhouses."
      ...
      Dr. Neal Barnard, director of the Physicians Committee for Responsible
      Medicine: "The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths
      than all the wars of this century, all the natural disasters and all
      automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of 'real food for
      real people,' you'd better live real close to a real good hospital."
      And one of our greatest visionaries, Albert Einstein, doesn't leave
      any room for doubt: "Nothing will benefit human health and increase
      chances for survival on Earth as much as the evolution of a vegetarian
      diet."
