Know your meat source

More and more people are becoming vegetarians and vegans. When I read the linked article, I understand more of them.
I'm still doing what I can to purchase my meat from small organic establishments: Witteveen at the St. Lawrence Market on weekdays, the farmers who sell pig, goat, and lamb at the north market on Saturdays.

Please don't buy meat from CAFOs. If you haven't seen Food, Inc., watch it. Read some of the books that have been written in the last few years (including Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food).

Oh -- that link: Tom Philpott's Grist.org.  Michael Ruhlmann pointed to this article in a tweet today.
