  3. I also think that folks should realize not just how egregious the practices of the agribusiness meat industry are, but to be aware how bad almost all the agribusiness processed products are. Don't assume because the product says vegetarian/vegan from these companies that it is good for you!

    Whole unprocessed foods preferably from sources you know – best way to go.
