Cruelty and Kitchen

With the International Whaling Commission(IWC) annual meeting underway last month, questions about whaling and animal rights in general surfaced again. Whale meat is a picky issue and demonstrates the schism that exists in todays world.

If you are meat eating or just don't care, you might be inclined to think what's all this fuss about. Well, everyone is entitled to an opinion, a different outlook towards life and I respect that. Be what suits you best.

This article on BBC explores how culture, religion and customs influence what's acceptable and what's not as food and how we have evolved to be so different from each other. The original article is embedded in an iframe here.

I know its kinda hard to read it here, but my site template seems to be restricting the width of the iframe window.
