China Should Accept Responsibility For Pandemic

Our community is at risk from the latest "bat" pneumonia from a culture where they eat everything that moves. The inhumane treatment of animals at Wuhan Wet Market slaughterhouse has brought us SARS in 2003, H1N1 and now bat pneumonia COVID-19 in 2020. As dire as these consequences are, these wet markets continue to conduct business every day in China and shall not be eradicated. We are at risk for subsequent diseases making the rounds in the future. One possible action is to consider the food we eat here in the USA, how the animals are ethically raised and treated because I am sure there are a few places that have no ethics in treatment of livestock, poultry. I think we should really consider the 'source' of our meat and how it was reared. Perhaps, as consumers we shall pay more for meat that is ethically raised and killed as food. Or we may just decide to go on a plant based diet? There are many options for protein such as lentil based diet that is equally effective at delivering protein. The barbaric practice of eating anything that moves has resulted in the new Wuhan COVID-19 vector now in the human domain. Personally, I am done with meat, chicken, fish. All in for veggie and lentils. Love all animals. They have a right to life as do we.
