    There is so much to work on in this world, and none of us will do all we'd like to do.

    May I suggest that one simple way to help the animals, without adding a new cause to jump into, is to give some thought to switching to a plant-based diet. For your health, make it as whole-foods as possible.

    I believe it was Michael Pollan who said that if you want to make the single biggest step to reduce animal suffering, just start with not eating chickens. That will save the greatest number of lives.

    An American cardiologist said that first we kill the animals to eat them, and then they kill us.

    I strongly recommend the video Forks Over Knives, which talks about the killing us part.

      It's excellent and has some great recipes.  Of course, I didn't need any convincing to go veg as I did that about 8 years ago, but I did need a little more convincing to become vegan or nearly so.  I probably won't eschew a little honey.
