I literally had nightmares about chickens in cages for the three days it took me to read this. I was already a vegetarian when I decided to read Eating Animals. I have to say that it reaffirmed my decision and I will NEVER eat meat again. What we humans are willing to allow in order to satisfy our taste buds is amazing. We look the other way and have an attitude that if we don't know then it doesn't matter. We all have the responsibility to know how our food got to the grocery store. I am disgusted that people would rather ignore suffering if it means they can still enjoy their bacon.
