Stop mur­der­ing cows, chick­ens, lambs, fish

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION -

As I be­gin my sec­ond year as a nu­tri­tional science stu­dent at San Jose State Uni­ver­sity, I’ve be­come fa­mil­iar with the tricks com­pa­nies use when pack­ag­ing food items. For in­stance, sugar may be listed un­der sev­eral dif­fer­ent names so that there ap­pears to be less sugar in the prod­uct. As we wait on the FDA’s even­tual nutri­tion la­bel change, I write this as a re­minder for the com­mu­nity to be aware of what is in their food.

Thank you for cov­er­ing the big­gest so­cial jus­tice move­ment (“Rein­vent­ing the food chain,” Page 1A, Sept. 13) of our time since the abo­li­tion of slav­ery. There is no rea­son to breed, trans­port and mur­der these won­der­ful an­i­mals. Now stop the chicken, the fish, the lambs, the rab­bits and all an­i­mals from the gu­lags of de­spair. — Linda Mid­dlesworth, Sacra­mento
