Ok i realize the headline was abit on the dramatic side. But listen to this. Paula Deen hooked up with Smithfield Foods, one of the biggest (and worst) pork manufacturers in the nation.
Her intentions were noble. This is all in the name of charity as the goal was to donate over 25,000 pounds of ham to a local pantry. I can understand her attempt at helping those who are hungry and she gets a nice big fat A for effort. But she could easily have donated loads more food in the form of veggies. Meat is so expensive and such an environmental hazard.
It takes tons less energy and water to produce corn, rice, and other foods than it does to raise animals for meat. When will people realize the many hazards associated with growing meat? Surely Paula has picked up a magazine or two in the last five years, and has been schooled in the matter.
Again i appreciate the intention and motive, but c-mon do you have any idea how many PIGS had to die for this noble act? I will spare you.
But i will tell you this, Smithfield Foods kills 30 million pigs each year. Ouch! That is horrendous.
