The easiest way to eat meat is not to think about it. It sits on your plate as a fillet or burger, a breast or wing, a glazed ham or tasty bacon. It has no face, no eyes, no fur, no pain – or does it?
“Eating meat can be as bad for our bodies as it for the environment. Meat contains 14 times more pesticides than plant food. The dairy business has led us to believe we need milk for strong bones, when in fact, a Harvard study found that women who consumed the most calcium from dairy foods broke more bones than those who rarely drank milk. Heart conditions, cancer, strokes, and other diseases have been linked to dairy and meat consumption.”
“You have a choice. When you eat meat from factory farms you are eating pain, suffering, and torture. As Gandhi once said, “The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated . . . the more helpless a creature, the more entitled it is to protection by man from the cruelty of man.” Choose not to eat meat from factory farms, because this is violence you can stop.” full story
