# 118 (2013) What You Can’t See Can’t Hurt You

There is nothing more creepy to me than tv advertisements for free range ‘humanely’ cultivated meat products. A sanitised process designed to make you buy without having to think about what really goes on behind the abatoir door.

Waitrose has gone straight for the British conscience as always with its Christmas turkey ad. That the farm originates in Grimsby should be warning enough.

I was a vegetarian for many years. I only stopped because I was bored of eating the same few meals every week and unable to afford the extortionate prices of more interesting vegetarian options. I’m not fussy about what meat I buy because free range and organic is still off budget and I’m well aware that ‘free range’ doesn’t mean what I think it should mean.

As we know from the recent horsemeat scandal, it doesn’t really matter who you buy from, it all ends up in the same factories somewhere along the line and that goes for the transport and slaughter processes as well.

If you genuinely care about the meat production processes in this country and you genuinely want to avoid the way we cultivate animals for food, go vegetarian. It’s the only way you’re going to be sure of a humane ending because vegetables don’t have feelings….do they?
