If you'd rather not think about it, lots of people have copped out with the "oh I can't look or think about it" Then they run off for a burger. That not only doesn't help the animals, it gives cause for these slaughter houses and growth prisons to confine and mistreat to an even higher degree. Grow up. Look the facts in the eye, then look that cheeseburger in the, uh... eye? I don't expect people to stop eating meat, but we could insist by choosing our purchases how that animal was raised. Mistreated animals affect the healthiness of the meat, and your health, if for no other reason.  AIW is certifying farmers and exposing unhealthy meat factories. Visit their site. Here's one excerpt from there: awi

Today, areas of emphasis is cruel animal factories, which raise and slaughter pigs, cows, chickens and other animals. The biggest are in our country, and they are expanding worldwide.

Animals in Agriculture

Half a century ago, family farms were prevalent. Animals grazed on pasture, breathing fresh air, and feeling sunshine on their backs. During inclement weather, they were sheltered in straw-bedded barns.In contrast, the rearing of farm animals today is dominated by industrialized facilities that maximize profits by treating animals not as sentient creatures, but as production units. Raised by the thousands, at a single site, animals are confined in such tight quarters that they can scarcely move, let alone behave normally. Such production creates what appears to be “cheap” meat, eggs, and dairy products. But what at the cash register appears inexpensive in fact costs dearly to farm animals, the environment, rural and traditional farming, human health, and food quality.Over 9 billion chickens, pigs, cattle, turkeys, sheep, goats, ducks, and geese are bred, raised, and killed for food annually in America. Each is a social, feeling individual capable of experiencing pleasure but realistically the vast majority are familiar with deprivation, fear, and pain.Of concern to AWI are all aspects of a farm animal’s life including breeding, growing,transport, and slaughter. Each phase offers the opportunity for cruelty or compassion. AWI works in myriad ways to halt the inhumane and irresponsible practices intrinsic to industrial agriculture, and seeks to replace them with methods which are both humane and economical. These alternative methods take the feelings of the animals into account, and they ensure each species can express normal behavior.

AWI is also committed to connecting compassionate consumers with like minded farmers, as well as revealing disingenuous labeling schemes and companies engaged in contradictory methods of animal production.

"Barbaric." "Sickening." "Infuriating." These are words that Senator William Byrd of West Virginia used to describe the way that livestock is treated in our nation's "profit-driven factory farms" and slaughterhouses. It was July 9, 2001, and the powerful chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee was speaking from the floor of the U.S. Senate. "Such insensitivity is insidious and can spread and is dangerous," he said. "Life must be respected and dealt with humanely in a civilized society."

This is about suffering animals .
You think you got it tough. Every man for himself!

Each year in the United States, 10 billion land animals are raised in horrid conditions 
and killed for meat

In the United States, about 9.6 million animals are euthanized annually.  
American animal shelters euthanized 56% of dogs and 71% of cats that they take in, most of them healthy animals

I'd rather not think about it either. I sure as hell don't want to put myself in their shoes. 
Try to imagine being one of them. If you don't believe in reincarnation, you'd better be right, eh?

What's the problem, how can it be improved?What can a busy person do in less time than it takes to scarf down a burger?Click here for ways.
If you think it's hopeless, that you as one person can't make a difference, then you've relinquished control of your life.
If I save one animal. It's an accomplishment. You may not agree, but I'm sure that one animal does. What if that one animal were you?

*The Dalai Lama tried being a vegetarian in the 1960s, developed jaundice (hepatitis), and was ordered by his doctors to eat meat again. This is not known to be a complication of vegetarianism and may have been coincidental or the result of an unbalanced vegetarian diet: reportedly, the Dalai Lama had subsisted mostly on nuts and milk. In large, controlled, long-term studies, vegetarians and vegan's have tended to be slightly healthier and possibly longer-lived than comparable non vegetarians. The American Dietetic Association and the Dietitians of Canada have consistently endorsed the safety and healthfulness of a well-planned vegetarian or vegan diet. 
UPDATE, December 2004: In a Reader's Digest interview this year, The Dalai Lama said he is now entirely vegetarian, except when he's on the road. "My kitchen is now totally vegetarian," he said. "But when I visit places, occasionally I take non-vegetarian..."

Scientific research has shown that warm-blooded animals (this includes livestock) feel pain and the emotion of fear. In particular mammals, including food animals of this group, have brain structures that enable them to feel fear and suffering from pain, and it is likely that they suffer pain in the same way as humans.

Fear and pain are very strong causes of stress in livestock and stress affects the quality of meat obtained from this livestock. Pain is usually the effect of injury and suffering, which also affects the quality and value of meat from affected animals.

State legislators have been introducing pro horse slaughter resolutions on behalf of foreign investors anxious to defeat H.R. 503.These resolutions and bills are a not-so-subtle ploy by the foreign investors that own horse slaughter houses to defeat H.R. 503 which would ban the sale, transport, and possession of horses in interstate and foreign commerce for slaughter for human consumption.Even without H.R. 503, horse slaughter cannot occur legally in the U.S. There is no point in states appropriating tax dollars for studies when currently horse slaughter for human consumption is not allowed in the U.S. These resolutions will simply insure horse slaughterers can continue to take American horses to Mexico or Canada for slaughter.The number of states taking part is alarming. They are: Arizona, Tennessee, Utah, Missouri, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Kansas, Arkansas, Minnesota, Montana, and Illinois.

From Pet
to dead Food

“Not the torturer will scare me, nor the body's final fall, nor the barrels of death's rifles, nor the shadows on the wall, nor the night when to the ground the last dim star of pain, is hurled but the blind indifference of a merciless, unfeeling world.”

Lyric from a Roger Waters song which I believe he got from a letter, written by a man in prison who had been tortured.

“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”

Margaret Mead 
(December 16, 1901 – November 15, 1978)
You can make a difference.  Change yourself.
