French food culture under attack

Click HERE

Cruelty is still sometimes presented as an unavoidable path to fine gastronomy.

And with the animal-products industry generating €26 billion (S$41.5 billion) in annual revenue and employing thousands of people, these concerns have often been shoved aside.
Organisations such as L214 seek to change that, including video-taping and releasing evidence of animal mistreatment.
Note the French cuisine is renowned world-wide for its fine-dining....it is hard to imagine French food that does not involve meat....In fact, the kind of food we eat is part of our cultural identity:
According to the butchers' lobby, the trend threatens "a whole part of French culture that owes so much to artisan butchers, farmers, fishmongers and cheese shops". And that threat is now right at their doorsteps.

Qns:
1. 'You are what you eat'. Discuss.
2. To what extent are the rights of animals protected in your society? (Cam. 2012)
