Food for thought whether you are a meat eater or not, it is as well to know how meat for food is treated in many of the countries and cultures of the world. The material is presented factually, without judgement or bias for you to come to your own conclusions. Whatever your thoughts and feelings on this subject, you will come away from Charlie’s talk with more knowledge and information
