Readers on Korean dog meat trade: If this practice outrages you, try veganism

Thank you for USA TODAY’s article “Winter Olympics shine light on Korean dog meat trade”. Most of us do not have any direct impact on what happens to dogs at the Korean Peninsula, but each of us make daily choices about what happens to pigs, turkeys, cows and other animals akin to dogs and humans in their sentience.

The question isn’t how much they suffer in their lives and deaths. The question is do we continue to kill animals when we don’t need to? A well-balanced plant-based diet is healthy. Research shows this. Vegan athletes show this. And the American Dietetic Association, Kaiser Permanente and Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine support a vegan diet. If you are outraged and sickened by dogs ending up on the plates of others, would you honor your values of compassion, fairness and justice for other animals by going vegan?

and when the spacemen finally land
they see our planet,
lush and grand
filled with humans
upon whom to dine.
eating meat then is
no good
when man
sits on the tine.

    Sorry, Nancy, I didn’t watch the movie or I cannot sleep at night. I’m sick to see such horrible things… and nobody is able to change it once and for all. As Karen wrote, we aren’t the only species on the Galactica… wait and see…
