Watch this and you can then join Lisa & I not eating animals by going on a plant based diet. It's much, much healthier that way as well since our bodies are better designed to digest and absorb plants than it is meat or other animal foods. This video is EXTREMELY graphic so just be aware and DO NOT have any children present.
I must inform you that you will want to turn it off, but keep watching. Trust me it is absolutely horrific and it will infuriate you that there are people out there who can do what you will see them do, but just watch. It's only 12 minutes.
Watch this to the end no matter what, be educated, and you will feel MUCH better about making that choice.
THERE IS HOPE
Yes there definitely is a difference from purchasing meat from and contributing to the practices of the commercial meat industry, but again our bodies are still better designed to digest and absorb plant based foods.
If you choose to eat meat I recommend only get pasture raised (grassfed), wild caught, organic (but just because it's organic does not mean it's safe, humane and healthy).
The mistreatment and unhealthy raising practices of conventional meat plants need to be stopped. ASAP... and WE have a say in that. Boycott.
Watch the below video to see the humane and almost family-like raising practices that you should ensure goes into your food.
Again, I personally mostly eat plant based, but what the video "Farm To Fridge - The Truth Behind Meat Production" does not address are farms such as Joel Salatin's "Polyface Farm" which is 100% humane, loving, and raising their animals the way nature intended.
This is how it is supposed to be. Choose your food and your food sources very, very wisely.
