Why you want to eat me??
13 reasons not to eat meat, consider becoming vegetarian or vegan.
A USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) study found that 98% of broiler chicken carcasses had detectable levels of E. Coli, indicating fecal contamination. Meat is dirty!!
Because it isn't fair. Killing other animals is an act of exploitation and violence, and we do it just because we have the power to.
Because no one should make a living by killing.
Being vegan or vegetarian: reverse risk of heart disease, lifespan 6 - 10 years longer than meat eater, 9 times likely to become obese, and 40 % less likely to get cancer.
Studies have shown that vegetarian kids grow taller and higher IQ than their classmates, and they are at reduced risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and other diseases in long run.
Because the animals are forced to live in terrible condition. They are often deprived of food and water for weeks. They are crowded so tightly that many of them never spread their wings or run.
Because Mad cow disease is still present in the world. Millions of animals bound for your dinner are still being fed the remains of others.
Because more than half of all water used in the US is used to raise animal for food. A totally vegetarian diet requires 300 galleons of water per day, while a meat-eating diet requires more than 4000 galleons of water per day!!!
Because these animals feel pain.... just like you and I do. And they scream too...
Because no mother want to see her babies die in front of her... No matter what species she is.
Because the grain used to feed animals could be used to feed hungry people. 70% of grain in the US is used to feed livestock. And 80% of farmland is used to raise them.
Because they don't want to die...
And because meat is gross... it's someone else's flesh, someone else's blood, someone else's life!!
So next time you sit down and eat meat, remember that what you're chowing down on used to breath, have emotions, and was afraid...
All the words above copied from this great video...
Vegetarian is always the best!!!
