This gets you to the top of my pet peeve list. True, there are many vegetarians who truly follow this mantra and don't wear any fur or leather, however, when was the last time you checked the ingredient statement on your daily dose of candy?
Christien Meindertsma recently published a three-year project called Pig 05049 researching all products made from a single pig. The result -- a whopping 185 items. Seemingly "innocent' things like chewing gum, marshmallows, store-bought bread and Jell-O contain porcine strands -- pig by-products. Pig protein, bone fat and hoofs. If the idea of eating piggly wiggly's hoofs turns you off, keep reading for a quick appetite suppressant.

At the end of the day, so much of what we humans consume comes from different animals. We need to find a humane way to treat them while they are alive, and make sure no part goes to waste when slaughtered.
I celebrate the whole animal in my three-inch leather heels enjoying my salty licorice after a good pork roast.
