A good note about the kosher rules and extending kosher to encompass
not only how the animal was processed kosher wise but including the
health and labor practices as being more kosher for the laborers.

Halal food - the food processed according to Muslim law they can go
get Kosher food. The pratices in processing are similar enough to
make allowances for Kosher vs. Halal and vice versa.
