FOOD FOR THOUGHT

ZOOMER Magazine - - MAIL -

I’m a new sub­scriber and have al­ways ad­mired your ma­ture topics, so am en­joy­ing read­ing them. How­ever, my senses were dis­turbed by the pic­ture of raw meat and smok­ing bar­be­cue [“Where There’s Smoke,” July/ Au­gust].

Af­ter re­cently watch­ing a doc­u­men­tary on the slaugh­ter prac­tice of an­i­mals, my guess is the meat in­dus­try would deny it – plus the health is­sues.

Well, at 81 years, I have tried to prac­tice well­ness, mak­ing many changes with diet along the way – the lat­est be­ing a plant-based diet.

I am al­ways amazed how peo­ple ig­nore the facts of in­dus­trial and cor­po­ra­tion prac­tices. And I try not to judge all the obese and di­a­betic peo­ple around me.

I hope to have a few more years but feel out­num­bered with my think­ing. —Jean Pearce, via email
