Someone I have as a contact on Facebook recently posted this:
Is eating pseudo-burgers made of soybeans that hail from monocrop farms whose owners razed the land on which they grow, killing families of groundhogs and field mice and trillions upon trillions of essential microbes that compose the topsoil ethical?
Vegetarians: Animals all die as a result of these practices!!!
Wtf? Not another person whinging and whining about vegetarianism/veganism because they themselves don't have the moral courage or will to go that extra mile.
1. No one can argue against 'killing microbes' while they happily munch away at much higher lifeforms.
2. Monsanto is a terrible company, and their GMO products ARE crappy. The quote is mostly accurate, except that they completely ignore the pollution and environmental impact that THEIR food intake causes.
4. The obvious answer is to not eat fake soy burgers from GMO sources, and ideally, not many fake burgers anyway. Real food is the answer! I would like to see their response then.
