How strongly do you care about where your food comes from and how it's processed?

When I learned that bottled water often came from treatment plant water I started reading labels to avoid them.

I'm vegan and try my best to avoid processed foods. I definitely care

I didn't read fast food nation in high school it was required reading. So let me live an ignorant life.

Don't tell me, especially true when I'm eating something like chopped dates imported from Pakistan.

Sorry but without a third option, it's kinda hard to demonstrate two extremes and a middle group. So there will be people in the middle leaning to I need to know.

I care, but food tracking is pretty poor currently.

Not against GM food but I'd like to see some mandatory labeling system.
It would also be nice to know that my meat lived in reasonably humane conditions before slaughter.

I'm not obsessive, but I care. Especially about processed foods.

Don't wanna know the cow, I don't want to now if it had kids, what their names are, if they're going to college, if they see their pig neighbors, if they're having grandchildren, if they found a new job, if they're moving, if the grandma just died.

I'd like to know if the chicken had room to run around, minimally. I don't want to be an accessory to a joint that stuffs their chickens so tight in cages they can't move around, along with a number of other chickens, so stressed out with lights on..

If the parents just died, if they're on welfare, if they approve of Obama, if they feel they are a chicken in a cow's body, if they support chicken cow marriage, if they're adopting a turkey, if the racist dairy cow showed up for thanks giving.......

day & night that they try to peck each other to death - so farmers resort to clipping beaks & having the chickens wear goggles. Animal cruelty, in other words. I've seen (most of) that. It sucks. And that was the GOOD chicken farm.

I care as well of course, but there are certain times where I just want it in my mouth and I care less.

If everyone buys without thinking or caring, those conditions will continue.

chicken, I really don't know who follows what practices, or even how to find out reliably. I shop at stores that buy from smaller farms & try to judge by the packaging - which I know isn't completely reliable (remember I said I'm not "obsessed")...

But I look for any indication I can find that the animals were treated humanely.

Chicken, (how ironic) yes Perdue does do that. There is a food documentary called food inc. check it out. There was a chicken farmer who refused to upgrade her farm because it would have been more cruel for the chickens. I believe the chickens.....

Would be in complete darkness for their entire lives with the new farm. So anyways, they fired her. This was in the documentary. It was towards the end. Until then, it was all Tyson and others. But yes perdue is just as bad. I Want to re watch it now
