Most local farmers have to use the older and less humane methods, actually. Not to mention they aren't regulated as much and thus don't even have to tell how they do things. We have to kill things to eat, the debate of which method of killing is more humane is pretty silly, since it's all still killing.
As for your final point, not really. Most fat people are that way because they don't get as much activity as their bodies need, a side effect of living in the modern age. What angers me though is that many ailments are being stereotype as "fat" or "not fat" illnesses, and fat people get most of the illnesses so us skinny people are often not diagnosed until it almost kills us as a result. The reality of the situation is much simpler than what doctors even want to face, some people are just fat. That's it, everything else is stereotype or urban myth.
No, local farmers do NOT. FACTORY farmers DO.

No- the method in which killing is done is NOT a silly argument at all.

Would you rather be tortured to death or die in your sleep or even be killed in your sleep?

Anyway, your first statement was totally wrong.

You should read up on factory farming. It's an abomination and is one of the reasons I keep my animal flesh consumption to quite the minimum and I am considering going back to a 100% vegetarian diet which I was on for over 12 years and felt great and didn't miss eating animal flesh.

I only backslided because I got LAZY.

Also, obesity among children AND adults is at epidemic proportion in the USA and sorry, Kitten, but being overweight or obese leads to MANY illnesses and diseases that don't afflict those who are HWP.

The only people who are "just fat" and through no fault of their own are those with glandular issues, and those cases are the exception as to the obesity epidemic that is now plaguing this country.

<quoted text>Been there, done that, but I guess you haven't.......Okay- I'll amend that to say that pizza isn't as UNhealthy as are hot dogs.
And I do NOT eat chain pizza- no Pizza Hut, no Dominoes, no Papa John's, etc.
I eat pizza from actual mom and pop pizza parlors.
And here is what also makes up a pizza:
Vitamins
The tomato sauce on pizza contains vitamins A, C, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B6, folate, choline, lycopene and lutein.
The vitamins in the whole milk mozzarella cheese on pizza include vitamins A, B12, D, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, choline and retinol. The saturated fat in whole milk mozzarella cheese is 14.73 g per cup and the cholesterol is 88 mg per cup.
The vitamins in pizza dough made with all-purpose, enriched and unbleached white flour include vitamins A, B6, E, K, thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, folate, folic acid, lutein and zeaxanthin.
Minerals and Amino Acids
Tomato sauce contains 18 amino acids and the minerals it contains include calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
Mozzarella cheese is high in calcium and it contains iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium.
The minerals in the dough include calcium, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, zinc, copper, manganese and selenium. Pizza dough contains some saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and 18 amino acids.
And according to the USDA:
According to the United States Department of Agriculture, pizza is one of America's favorite foods and eating cheese is a good way of getting calcium and protein. The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases puts pizza on its list of calcium sources. The USDA also states studies have shown that the consumption of tomatoes may lessen your chance of getting cancer because tomatoes contain the antioxidant lycopene. A prostate cancer study showed a drop in prostate cancer risk when the amount of lycopene in the blood was elevated. Studies have also shown that when you eat tomatoes, you may be able to lessen your risk of developing heart disease, colorectal cancer, stomach cancer and lung cancer.

Thanks, but I'll continue to indulge with a bit more frequency than I indulge in pizza and another reason I will is because I'm not eating any animal flesh when I eat pizza.
What if there's a mom n pop fingernail in it?

I don't have a link, my sister told me, she's a Chem Major and did food studies amongst other things, I found it online but it was awhile ago. The history behind the creation of bread to fill up poor people cheaply, is interesting too.

About Lean Cuisine- yep- packed with chemicals and preservatives, but if one is eating them for the purpose intended- to lose weight by eating a low calorie, low fat meal, Lean Cuisine is a great choice for that.
And AGAIN, RR- "stupider" IS a word and a perfectly correct word and just as correct as "more stupid".
GOOGLE it if you don't believe me.
So while "stupider" IS a perfectly correct word, "descenter" of course, is NOT.
If you want to learn about the English language, learn that there are very few hard and fast rules in that while adding an "er" to ALL words is not correct, it IS correct to add "er" to SOME words- with "stupider" being just ONE of those words.
I remember seeing videos of what Tyson does. I don't wanna see those again. It's horrible.

No....you did say you have never traveled outside of this country and that you have no desire to. You also said you saw no reason to travel abroad when there are so many great places in the USA to visit which you haven't visited yet.

I KNOW what you said then just as I know what you said now.

If you KNOW about "stupider" why post "descenter" (sic) for MY benefit?

You were poking fun at me having used the word "stupider" and are now just first admitting that it IS a perfectly acceptable and correct word.

Listen, RR- you may be able to get away with your silly back-pedaling nonsense with Mrs. RR, your female bosses, your mother and any other women you know- with the exception of being able to get away with that crap with ME.

BTW, if you think what Tyson does is horrible, maybe you should watch a video about factory farming as a whole.

It just might get you to go vegetarian.

It is BEYOND horrible how animals are raised, kept, treated and killed in the world of factory farming.

<quoted text>Okay- I don't like Walmart- period.
I find most of their merchandise to be shoddy and poorly made and their produce department to be sorely lacking and filled with substandard produce.
And sorry- but "getting AROUND the law" is really no different from BREAKING the law- it's just a different way of saying it is all.
And despite how much on-line shopping at Walmart might take place, their parking lots ARE always full and quite often to capacity.
NOW end of story.
Your first statement is honest, and that was what I was looking for. I don't like McDonald's but I will admit that they do provide a service and product that a lot of people like as well as provide valuable services to communities around the world in the forms of charities. I still don't like them or their products.

Getting around an unjust law is somehow "wrong" to you? That's disturbing.

The parking lots being full is one of the reasons more people use the internet now. If there were more Walmarts, thus allowing more choices of where to go, there would be less density at any one Walmart. They offer a product and service people not only like but also need in many cases, and since most small businesses over charge to make a profit, it's cheaper to travel to the nearest Walmart, or Target, or Costco, than it is to pay the inflated prices of the smaller, more local, businesses. If there were more Walmarts people would save more money on gas, and be able to buy more of the local ... well .. junk.

Generally, fat people are fat for two reasons.

They eat too much.

They get no kind of exercise.

Period.

Being fat isn't a disease...
