So I have a question about the smaller animal ingredients in packaged foods. Like, gelatin in vitamin capsules and stuff like that. Does avoiding these ingredients really help animals? (I'm genuinely asking. The question sounds like a challenge, but it's not meant that way). I'm not looking for an e...
