Products Made from Cattle

January 26, 2012

This image has been circulating around the internet a lot…but it raises an interesting point about how we really do not know what we are using/consuming most of the time. This is not to say that everyone should stop using all of these products because they come from cattle.  But it is important to be knowledgeable on what you do believe in and know how some things can be justified and when others are not.
