Learn the disturbing truth about animal agriculture. Witness and acknowledge the horrific cruelty inherent in the system. Killing animals to eat them is violent and abusive to completely innocent animals who do nothing to deserve such treatment.
Learn how the violence in animal agriculture also affects people who work in places like slaughterhouses and farms. Those workers take PTSD, mental distress and blunted emotional response home to their communities, infesting them with high rates of domestic violence, and heightened levels of drug and alcohol abuse.
Learn about human health. People happily thrive on plant-based diets. Eating animals causes the top killers such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, hypertension and cancer.
Learn about the deeply negative impact that animal agriculture inflicts upon the environment. Pollution of the air, water and soil is rampant in animal agriculture. Destruction of precious rainforests is driven by animal agriculture. The seas are dying due to animal agriculture.
These are big issues, but they are problems that every individual can powerfully address and help solve with each meal.
Now more than ever there are numerous resources, many of which are free, to help people learn how to safely, enjoyably and healthfully switch to a plant-based diet. Take this knowledge and change. Change habits to be healthier, kinder and more environmentally responsible. We can learn these uncomfortable truths, and then use that knowledge to change and create a safer, happier world for all.
Evolve as a human being as a result. Leaving out toxic animal-based foods that do significant harm and embracing instead the benevolent, invigorating foods in the plant kingdom makes life better in every way. We become better people when we stop eating animals.
