Let us please educate ourselves so that we can align our actions with our values. Step one; watch Cowspiracy on Netflix or free online, to learn about the hidden and shocking truths of animal agribusiness and its rapid destruction of our only environment (51% of climate change, 91% of Amazon deforestation, 56% of all water use, more pollution than all other sources combined, leading cause of dead zones, etc.) .
Then, learn about how “breeding” cows, sows (mother pigs), and hens are genetically modified and routinely raped on what the industry actually calls a rape rack, then, their children are stolen from them and killed (dairy= veal and eggs= adorable male chicks ground up alive or gassed or left in a dumpster to die), and the mothers mourn and cry in agony at the loss. The industry is based on the exploitation of the female reproductive system, and these sweet beings, just like our beloved dogs and cats, are treated as mere objects, beaten and mutilated. .
To support such acts one cannot truly be feminist, environmentalist, or an animal lover, once they have a glimpse of the truth. Humans do not tend to think critically but they must or we will all continue to suffer. Albert Einstein said, “Unthinking respect for authority is the greatest enemy of truth.” Facts do not cease to exist just because they are ignored or hidden. .
Please also watch Earthlings free online to learn more. They live through this violence each and every second of their miserable lives, so we owe them an hour and a half of our time to see it, and our dedication to stopping it. Vegan foods are even more delicious nowadays, anything a nonvegan eats a vegan can eat in a healthier cruelty free analog; it’s 2018, it’s about time we step out of the dark ages and earn the title humanity. .
Final step, or it can be first if you need self-benefitting motivation, watch Forks Over Knives and What The Health on Netflix. Going vegan stops 14 out of the 15 leading causes of death from disease and eliminating animal products is the most self-serving and healthy thing you could possibly do for yourself. It’s truly the epitome of a win-win-win, even for world peace. Read the World Peace Diet ✌️
