Transcript of Animals Used for Food

Animal Agriculture Health "Can we trust milk industry spokesmen? Can we trust any industry spokesmen? -Robert M. Kradjian, MD Milk- Does a Body Good? -Dairy consumption is highest in Nordic countries, the countries with the highest rate of osteoporosis. -Africa consumes little to no dairy, and has
some of the lowest rates of osteoporosis in the world. -Humans are the only animals to continue drinking milk past childhood, and drink another specie's milk. -The milk of every mammal is specific to that species needs. Cow milk is 21% protein, while human milk is around 5%. -Milk naturally contains caso-morphine, which is addictive. It is used to keep calves suckling. -Green, leafy vegetables are the most natural sources of calcium. Fortified soy milk and cereals also provide calcium. http://www.saawinternational.org/cow2.jpg -Animal proteins are directly linked to an increased risk of hypertension, cancer, diabetes, obesity, and Rheumadtoid arthritis. Famous vegans/vegetarians:

-Carl Lewis (Olympic Athlete)
-Mahatma Gandhi (Civil Rights)
-Leonardo Da Vinci (Artist)
-Voltaire (Philosopher)
-Ben Franklin (Politician)
-Albert Einstein (Scientist)
-Alicia Silverstone (Actor)
-Ellen DeGeneres (Talk Show Host) -In a 1998 study by "Consumer Reports," 70% of supermarket chicken was found to have salmonella or campylobacter. -Plant foods are void of cholesterol, phytochemicals, tend to be lower in saturated fat, and have fiber (unlike animal products). The Meat of the Matter A 1992 Omish study took 50 patients with coronary heart disease. The one's on a vegan diet improved their disease, while the meat eaters became sick. http://www.diseaseproof.com/Protein%20Content%20of%20Selected%20Plant%20Foods.JPG Environment We make the world we live in. ~ Orison Sett Marden -In 1999, Guru Angad Dev Animal Sciences found animal agriculture produces around 130 times more waste than the entire human population. -Animal agriculture is inefficient, since animals require much more nutrients and water to simply maintain their life than plants. What a Waste! -Agriculture accounts for 70% of global freshwater usage, 38% of land, and 19% of greenhouse gas emissions. -The UN deems animal agriculture unsustainable. Environmental impacts increase 80% with the doubling of income. http://www.remembergod.org/en/images/Huge_Flow_Of_Animal_Waste.jpg Ethics “Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: they’re only animals.”
― Theodor W. Adorno Your Wings, Sir -Over 9,000,000,000 chickens are killed for meat every year. -A standard practice is debeaking birds, a painful process done without anesthetic. -"Broilers" are usually slaughtered at only 6 weeks, by being shackled on a moving rail and dragged through electric water. Then their throats are slashed until they bleed to death. -Modern chickens are bred to grow very quickly, and often can't support their own weight. Lighting is manipulated to get them to overeat. http://www.straight.com/files/images/wide/ChickenSlaughterhouse_2011a.jpg http://lifeasahuman.com/files/2011/04/factory-farm-chickens.jpg Shelling Out -Chicks are usually born in incubators with hundreds of others. They're sorted at birth- males are "worthless," and usually ground, gassed, or thrown into bags. http://courtneyscott.org/beyond_productions/images/chicken.jpg -Following World War II, hens began being caged. Entire flocks are now slaughter right when production dips (12-15 months). -Hens are kept in 6*6 inch "battery" cages. "Free range" has no specific regulations, so many hens are simply cramped together. -Force molting involves keeping hens in darkness and starving them in order to produce more eggs. http://www.green-blog.org/media/images/uploads/2010/07/factoryfarming3_thumb.jpg http://media.nowpublic.net/images//ee/3/ee387420fd178b1511a31907ea615a68.jpg What's the Beef? -Cows are usually kept in crowded feedlots, and fed an unnatural diet, such as corn. - Many cattle are dehorned and branded without painkillers, sometimes on the face. -Even grass-fed cattle are subject to the same fate. They are first shackled by their feet, then "stunned" by a nail gun to the brain. This often misses, and their throats are slit while fully conscious. http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lvzp9kiv8d1r5bntbo1_400.jpg http://graphics8.nytimes.com/images/2008/01/27/weekinreview/27bittman.xlarge1.jpg http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_llg4reZcEL1qejrk1o1_400.jpg -Downed cows are cows with an inability to keep upright, usually due to illness or injury. They are forced to move, and put into the food supply anyways. Pork it Over -Sows are confined to gestation crates before giving birth, unable to turn around for weeks. -To prevent pigs from attacking each other due to stress, workers cut their teeth and castrate, also without any painkillers. -Factory farmed pigs are kept in warehouse-like building, and will most likely not see the sun in their life. http://www.all-creatures.org/anex/pig-ff-08.jpg http://www.animalsaustralia.org/radio/lucy_speaks/images/photos/07_teeth_clipping.jpg http://static.guim.co.uk/sys-images/Guardian/Pix/pictures/2009/1/5/1231197362263/A-pregnant-pig-in-a-sow-s-001.jpg Not Milk! -Cows are artificially inseminated. Pregnancy typically lasts 9 months. Nearly at birth, calves are removed from their mothers, even at local farms. -Males go towards veal. They're kept in small crates and fed an anemic diet to produce more tender meat. -Modern dairy cows produce 10 times more milk than natural. Over milking causes mastitis, which brings pus into the milk supply. -Females are killed at about 5 years, when production slows. They can live to 25. http://www.tryveg.com/img/themes/tco_savinganimals_cows2_l.jpg http://dingo.care2.com/pictures/c2c/share/16/169/928/1692842_370.jpg http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2011/02/16/article-1357657-0D398D2B000005DC-348_470x290.jpg http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/.a/6a00d8341c630a53ef0133f48f4e2c970b-600wi Mastitis Make a Difference for the environment, your health, and the animals.

Compassion is the way of becoming closer to the truth. Fun Fact: Pigs are considered by scientists one of the most intelligent animals, above dog's intellect.
