Muslims take Halal and Haram into great consideration because they are part of the basic principles of Islam.
Consuming Haram food is a sin Muslims must avoid any way possible because it may avoid them to enter heaven.
In old days when things are less complicated, it was not difficult to tell Halal or Haram. In a complicated age like today, however, someone need to observe Halal state in order for people to make a easier living.
