Mark Bittman has been prodding us to think about where our food comes from—and the animals involved in that supply chain—for some time. In his latest essay in The New York Times, he looks at how animals are treated throughout our society—and how context speaks volumes.
“In short, if I keep a pig as a pet, I can’t kick it. If I keep a pig I intend to sell for food, I can pretty much torture it.”
