Animals and their welfare

Has the Dairy industry deceived us?

goood for calfHas indeed the Dairy industry deceived us? I believe so, yes.

First of all, we have been led to believe Dairy products, milk, cheese are the best sources of calcium.

Could this in fact be untrue, could we have been sold a mis-truth?

From researching the topic, the calcium from Dairy is 6 times the amount of calcium we can absorb.

Not only that, the calcium is so acidic to our bodies that it requires our body to leech calcium from our bones to buffer this acidity.

Can you believe that, taking Dairy can potentially deplete us of calcium in our bones?

The Countries with the highest rate of Osteoporosis actually are those with highest intake of Dairy products.

How can this tally with taking Dairy and reducing risk of osteoporosis, helping our bones?

Taking the argument of nutrition aside, is Dairy a natural food for us to be taking?

We are the only mammal that takes the milk of another mammal beyond gestation period.

Cows are forced to remain pregnant, not allowed to feed their new born calf, because the milk is for human consumption.

Does this seem in any way natural or right?

Could it be possible that a whole industry has orchestrated a dependency upon it’s product falsely?

Yes, they have and more people need to be made aware of the real truths behind this whole industry.

no need for milkMilk contains growth factors which are fine for a growing calf, not in anyway healthy for a human being.

Growth factors make cells grow prolifically, out of control in some cases.

It also contains Pus, can you imagine that Pus. In every food product with milk in it, there is pus and growth factors in it.

These are not healthy nor positive characteristics.

Perhaps this article has provoked further investigation or thought? I hope that it has.

Look beyond the veneer presented by this industry and see the harrowing truths lurking beneath.

 

 

Growing misunderstanding of meat eaters

This title may cause dissent and anger in some, but is a topic I feel I need to explore.baby pig

Hear me out, though of course everyone will have their own opinion, which is perfectly entitled.

I find it hard to refrain from my obvious disgust when I see any type of meat being consumed.

This disgust is borne from not only the fact, the meat was once an animal, with life in it’s veins.

It also was an animal which had a high probability of having had a limited life coupled with a painful death.

Now, I have come to realize that not everyone feels the same as I do and I must respect that.

I would ask people to consider, is it right that a chicken should be cramped into an airless,enclosure without sunlight?

Should a cow be forced to remain pregnant to supply societies want of milk for their teas?

A pig, who has been shown to have comparable intelligence to a dog, is chosen to be eat, why?

Would we welcome killing a dog in the manner in which a pig is slaughtered, would it be considered humane?

People may brave the argument that we were meant to be meat eaters and it is a balanced diet with meat in it.

Where exactly did it ever say that early man eat meat, or indeed we cannot obtain a balanced diet devoid of meat?

Any carnivore in nature eats their meat raw and eats every part of the animal, do we, could we?

Carnivores have a small digestive tract, so the meat is digested quickly, we have a very long tract, is this significant?

So even taking the fact that soon to be slaughtered animals are treated worse than a non living thing aside.

The very basis of the meat eating argument for nutritional necessity is completely flawed.happy cow

A balanced vegetarian/vegan diet supplies the body with sufficient iron and it can be supplemented with Vitamin B12.

Meat is detached from it’s origins, dressed up to look far from the animal it came from.

We call pig,pork, a slice of steak, once cow.Do we consider anything about the suffering, life of that animal?

I ask you, if you could, consider the life of that animal, was it a good one, do you know?

I see in meat, pain, suffering, it is not a food I need nor want, hopefully I can provoke thought in those who read this.
