Or Kitty could have lost her life in a different way, lost it to the roller coaster of relapse and recovery, inpatient and outpatient, that eats up, on average, five to seven years. Or a lifetime: only half of all anorexics recovery in the end. The other half endure lives of dysfunction and despair. Friends and families give up on them. Doctors dread treating them. They're left to stand in the bakery with the voice ringing in their ears, alone in every way that matters.

If that hideousness came here [to the U.S.], it wouldn't be any more hideous for the animals-they are all bound for a ghastly death anyway. But it would wake up consumers ...

It would be good for animals, good for human health, and good for the environment.

— Ingrid Newkirk
