The eating of animals is actually a very indirect way of consuming vegetable protein (vegetable protein is the protein we really need). There is nothing to be gained nutritionally from eating the vegetable protein that has metabolized into another creature’s body (a.k.a. meat). In fact, the effects of this illogical practice are devastating to the health of our bodies.
The eating of meat is so ingrained in our lifestyle, that most often we’ll eat a burger (or watch someone else eat a burger) without giving it a second thought. Rarely do we consider the process of how the meat got from wherever it comes from- into the barbeque and then into our mouths. Buy the meat, cook the meat, eat the meat- in our minds, this is the extent of the process. But for every action there is a reaction and believe it or not, the eating of a simple grilled chicken sandwich has serious consequences- for both our bodies and the planet.
What scenes are we missing and why can’t we see them? Because the profit-driven meat industry doesn’t want us to know. The truth is that there are a lot of ugly secrets hiding behind one of the world’s darkest and most powerful industries.
