Meet Your Meat

I don’t ever want to judge anyone. I don’t want to push my personal beliefs on other people. I also don’t want to be graphic. But if you have never seen a video on how your meat is made, you owe it to yourself. Not only are the videos absolutely appalling, but it gives you some idea of the quality of the meat you are eating. 9If you don’t care or don’t want to know, I truly think you should take a minute to seriously consider why you feel that way).

Animals are pumped with hormones to maximize growth. They grow so unnaturally fast that their bodies cannot handle it and they often become crippled. These animals are not running around freely and then simply put to sleep peacefully, as many of us blindly wish to believe. They are highly social, intelligent animals that feel pain and emotions. Yet, they are left to spend their sad lives in filthy, diseased, awful and inhumane conditions, until they are eventually tortured to death.

Most of us would condemn a person who killed our pet dog or cat, but we still allow  millions of other animals to be tortured and killed? Where do we draw the line?

If you eat meat, you are not only condoning the inhumane treatment of animals, but you are also ingesting many unnatural hormones, bacteria and diseases.

In addition, meat production is horrible for the environment. It consumes 40% greenhouse gases than all of the world’s cars, boats, buses and airplanes combined. Meat is one of the top contributors to the loss of land and water, as well as air and water pollution.

Chances are, even if you think you know, you probably have no idea how a piece of chicken, pork or steak made it to your kitchen table. Check out “Meet your Meat” at this link:
