Bumper Sticker Wisdom

I saw a bumper sticker today that said, “Be kind to animals – don’t eat them.” That is one point of view. Another point of view is, “Be kind to yourself – don’t eat animals.”

I think that being a vegetarian is one of the best things someone can do for his or her health. If we all became vegetarian, the only drawback I can see is that certain industries that depend on animal products might lose money. The thing about businesses and industries, however, is that if they lose money in one area, they could easily make money in a different area. So what appears to be a drawback might not actually be a drawback after all. As usual, though, businesses don’t go down without kicking and screaming and making an awful fuss. But people will pay you just as much, maybe more, to give them healthy food as they pay for you to give them unhealthy food. Besides, if you don’t kill your consumers, they will be around longer to give you more money. Providing healthy food really makes good economic sense, and it’s the right thing to do.
