Why Do We Still Eat Meat?

I get it, you are one of the people who do not plan to stop eating meat in life -and I respect it-, but if you like to be informed and know a little about each topic I recommend that you stay and read what I have to tell you … and then if you want to comment, but not with insults or photos of hamburgers as in the rest of vegan threads, but with arguments.

If I make this post, it is because I want the people who do it to know everything behind it.

I also think it is a useful guide in case someone is starting and has doubts.

Unfortunately, many extremist vegans stain our image and make the omnivores that could rethink it even more transparent, which makes me very sad, but that is not my case, I do not want to suggest or convince you of anything, I just want to inform you.

Many people have commented saying something like “vegetarianism or veganism calls me, but I like meat too much”… and my answer is always: you don’t have to leave the meat 100%, this is not all or nothing, it is not so radical as it seems, it’s how you want it to be, and if you gradually reduce animal foods you will already be helping

If after reading this you feel anger, rejection or something is not right within you it is because your subconscious is not at all convinced with your current way of life, but if you do not get to continue reading or inform yourself more about veganism do not worry, just It is not your time, this thread will still be here for when you feel ready.

1. VEGANISM .. WHAT IS IT?

Veganism is a lifestyle based on admiration for animals. Considering that animals are individuals with interests that deserve to be respected has practical implications such as trying to prevent thousands of them from suffering or dying every second in slaughterhouses, laboratories, zoos, aquariums, circuses, fur farms, etc.

Every year 60,000,000,000 animals are killed in farms and slaughterhouses (more than eight times the human population of the earth.)
More than 140,000,000 tons of fish in individuals the figure is incalculable.
And more than 115,000,000 animals are used for experiments in laboratories around the world.

Can you imagine how it would be that a lot of giant aliens came to earth and put us in cages, baited us to eat a thousand shits, then tortured and killed us? It would be horrible, but that is what we do with them, that if anyone does not know it, they also have nervous systems and suffer.

2. REASONS TO BECOME A VEGAN :

  • ANIMALS

During their trip to the slaughterhouse, the animals are overcrowded and often unprotected from extreme temperatures. In general, animals arrive at the slaughterhouse in a precarious physical and psychological state. They are hungry, exhausted, and commonly confused and frightened.

Sometimes the animals are washed before slaughter. Frequently cleaning is done with pressure washers that can harm them, often in sensitive areas. Water temperature can also harm animals, which may find the process very stressful.

In addition, the discharge of animals from the trucks and forced to move violently to and from the waiting pens. When the animals are so scared that they will not run without painful punctures, puzzles, sticks, or electric punches are used, which cause the animals to suffer.

In the units of sacrifice, theoretically, the animals are stunned before they are slaughtered. Some animals (like sheep or pigs) are often stunned without previously immobilizing them. Those who work in these places simply approach the animal and stun it (or try to stun it), using methods such as the application of electric shocks. This is done repeatedly with different animals from the same group.

This method does not work with large animals such as cows, because the device that supplies the electric shocks cannot be placed on the animals to stun them. To facilitate the stunning process, and to protect those who work in slaughterhouses from possible injuries caused by animals when they try to escape, larger animals are immobilized before they are stunned and slaughtered. The following immobilization methods are used.

Electronarcosis is the most commonly used method with birds (such as chickens, chickens, turkeys, geese, and ducks). The most common procedure is to immerse the animals’ heads in an electric water bath, 14, where a current of 80 milliamps is applied for 3 seconds. Usually, this process is automated. The animals, suspended from hooks, pass through a large electric water bath for a few seconds before jumping on to the next step, in which the neck is cut.

Did you know that every vegan saves more than 100 animals a year?

  • HEALTH:

“Eating processed meat such as sausages, hamburgers, or sausages increases the risk of cancer, according to a panel of experts from the World Health Organization (WHO). The opinion considers that this type of food is “carcinogenic to humans” and includes it in the group of substances most dangerous to health along with tobacco smoke, alcohol, plutonium or polluted air, among others more than 100 compounds discussed above.

Some specialists prognosticate that in 30 years antibiotic-resistant bacteria will cause more deaths than cancer or traffic accidents. This problem already ends the lives of some 25,000 people each year in Europe, 2,500 of them in Spain. One of the many fronts of this global crisis is farms, where animals receive antibiotics that are crucial for human health. The greater the use of antimicrobials in these settings, the greater the likelihood that bacteria will appear resistant to all available antibiotics that can then reach hospitals and cause infections that are impossible to treat.”

And to this add that your cholesterol level will lower pleasantly.

It is more than proven and refuted that we can be vegan without risk to our health, and it is more than proven that the so-called plant-based diets are the most beneficial for our health. The most significant associations of dietetics and nutrition have talked about veganism (AND, Canada, UK) and have drafted well-justified positioning documents that support this type of food for all stages of life, including sports and pregnancy or lactation.
