Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they’re only animals.
~Theodor W. Adorno (1903-1969)

 

How can you eat meat, dairy, eggs, and fish and not be able to watch animals being tortured, murdered, and raped?

Note: Links to images or videos showing torture, murder, or rape below are colored RED. If you want to see what really happens on factory farms watch Earthlings (available free) and visit my Animal Agriculture explicit playlist at Youtube. Warning they contain torture, murder, and rape. If you choose to watch these videos and you feel bad, sad, or depressed afterwards you should feel this way especially if you eat meat, dairy, eggs, or fish. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!  

Does not nature produce enough simple [plant based] food for thee to satisfy thyself?
~Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)

Health

Medical operations for heart disease are very expensive but they can be prevented with a healthy diet.

It is my view that the vegetarian manner of living, by its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind.
~Albert Einstein (1897-1955)

If done *properly a vegan / strict vegetarian diet is the healthiest diet in the world. Vegetarians are healthier than people that eat meat and Vegans are healthier than vegetarians.

Human milk is for human babies. Cow milk is for calves. People over the age of 4 should not drink milk because it is unhealthy. Dangers of Dairy Milk

The FDA says to lower your cholesterol to prevent a heart attack or stroke but cholesterol only comes from animal products such as meat (beef, chicken, pork, fish, lamb, cat, dog, etc.), dairy (milk, butter, cheese, ice cream, yogurt), and eggs. Why don’t they just say stop eating meat, dairy, and eggs? Well because the FDA and the USDA (the meat, dairy, and egg industry) are closely tied and there is corruption in these agencies.

Egg Industry Board Paid Millions in Grants Seeking to Remove Lifesaving Cholesterol Limits

A vegan / strict vegetarian diet contains zero cholesterol. The only good cholesterol is the kind your body makes naturally from plants.

Evolution

diagram of human evolution from monkey to manA human body in no way resembles those that were born for ravenousness; it hath no hawk’s bill, no sharp talon, no roughness of teeth, no such strength of stomach or heat of digestion, as can be sufficient to convert or alter such heavy and fleshy fare. But if you will contend that you were born to an inclination to such food as you have now a mind to eat, do you then yourself kill what you would eat. But do it yourself, without the help of a chopping-knife, mallet or axe, as wolves, bears, and lions do, who kill and eat at once. Rend an ox with thy teeth, worry a hog with thy mouth, tear a lamb or a hare in pieces, and fall on and eat it alive as they do. But if thou had rather stay until what thou eat is to become dead, and if thou art loath to force a soul out of its body, why then dost thou against nature eat an animate thing? There is nobody that is willing to eat even a lifeless and a dead thing even as it is; so they boil it, and roast it, and alter it by fire and medicines, as it were, changing and quenching the slaughtered gore with thousands of sweet sauces, that the palate being thereby deceived may admit of such uncouth fare.
~Plutarch (46-120AD)

Humans are not Carnivores (meat eaters) or Omnivores (plant and meat eaters) they are Herbivores (plant eaters). Just compare the teeth. Carnivore teeth are pointy and sharp for tearing the raw flesh from an animal. Gorilla (humans’ closest relation) and Human teeth are mostly wide and flat for eating plants.

If you were to place a tiger next to a cow it would kill it and eat it raw. This is how meat is supposed to be eaten. It is not supposed to be cooked then have so many spices added so that it tastes like a plant. A human does not have the necessary sharp teeth or claws to tear raw flesh from animal bones. If you stood next to a cow would it’s smell excite you and make you want to tear the flesh from it’s bones with your teeth? Probably not.

Humans can live without meat, eggs, dairy, and honey. Humans cannot live without Vitamin C. The parts of an animal that contain Vitamin C are the liver, brain, heart, tongue, and adrenal glands.  Most people do not eat these parts of an animal. Most animals make their own vitamin C but humans do not. If humans do not eat fruits and vegetables they will die from Scurvy.

Animal Rights

 

snow leopard behind bars sadYou can judge a man’s true character by the way he treats his fellow animals.
~Paul McCartney

If slaughterhouses had glass walls, the whole world would be vegetarian.
~Linda McCartney, Linda’s Kitchen: Simple and Inspiring Recipes for Meals Without Meat

Animals should not be exploited in any way including but not limited to:

lambs with mother sheep numbered lambClothing – leather, wool

Entertainment – zoos, circus, sea world, rodeos, bull fighting, bull running, cock fighting, dog fighting, dog racing, horse racing, movies, television, hunting

Food – factory farming, farming, fishing, beekeeping

 

cute grey kitten sitting on pink pillowMedical Research – most of the research is not usable because the animal is not even the same species as us, HUMAN.

Cosmetic Testing – such as cutting an animal and dripping shampoo into the wound is unnecessary and only done so that the company paying for the research will have better insurance coverage.

Alternatives to Animal Testing
Shows better more accurate research methods.

It is ok to watch nature documentaries about animals and have pets.

Religion

holy supper bread wine on desk with open bookChristianity:

God’s diet for Man is a vegan diet he only allowed Man to eat meat for short term survival. Contribution to animal agriculture and factory farming are a sin. Eating meat is a sin unless it is for survival. If you can walk into a grocery store and purchase kale, lettuce, spinach or any other protein rich vegetable you are committing a sin when you eat meat. If you are stuck out in the middle of the desert or your plane has crashed on an island you can eat meat for survival, even human meat without committing a sin and you can still be a vegan.
