Free Range

Free range eggs across the UK have temporarily lost their free-range status and will now appear with a sticker to warn consumers
Up to a fifth of dairy cows in the UK are kept indoors in factory farms all year round, never feeling the grass beneath their feet or the sun on their backs. In Denmark 85 per cent of farms were grazing cows on grass in 2001, but by 2010 this had reduced to just 35 per cent . In the US the majority of dairy farms are industrial-scale indoor systems which can house tens of thousands of cows.
The great irony of Easter, a time of new life, is that we celebrate it with death; our culinary traditions at odds with spring's blooming plants and wildlife, lambs being born and chicks hatched. Society has normalised eating eggs. Very rarely do people question what they really are - hen's periods. Unfertilised menstruation. Not for me, thanks.

I'm all for being a veggie, and am almost there myself, apart from the odd bit of wild pheasant or something. Something that has a happy life and a quick end. But I would kill a suffering animal in a heartbeat, and in fact have had old or physically suffering dogs put down , and have even killed a half alive squirrel recently.
There has been a flurry of headlines recently claiming that the caged hen lives a happier, less stressed life than her free-range counterpart. Not surprisingly, I beg to differ...
I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the number of higher welfare products available. It's true that some cost a little more, but I discovered lots of deals on Freedom Food-labelled products.
Food is our fuel, it can be our best form of medicine or our slowest form of poison. Every cell in our body can be affected by the fuel we feed them. If we feed our body crappy-quality damaged vegetable oils that is what then makes up our cells or damages them.
British farmers will lose out to foreign producers thanks to an EU directive prohibiting the farming of ‘battery’ eggs, claims
