Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

SINCE the pub­lish­ing of the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion re­port, there have been many ar­ti­cles and let­ters writ­ten by peo­ple main­tain­ing they won't stop eat­ing ba­con (Ba­con stays on break­fast plate, South­ern Gazette, Novem­ber 3).

How­ever, what about the cost to the pig of this food choice?

Sadly, we have been con­di­tioned to re­gard­ing the lives of farmed an­i­mals as unim­por­tant but the fact is, they have feel­ings just like us and they suf­fer just like us.

Is it fair to con­demn in­tel­li­gent, sen­si­tive an­i­mals to agony just so we can en­joy the taste of their flesh?

Please open your eyes – and your hearts. The fear of can­cer is not the only rea­son to elim­i­nate ba­con from our di­ets. JENNY MOXHAM, Mon­bulk, Vic­to­ria.
