Nearly all of our meat, eggs and dairy comes from factory farms. The definition of "free range" in the poultry industry is a sick joke. When we consume eggs or meat we condone the torment and suffering inherent in the industry's cruel practices. We strongly encourage everyone to take a hard look at this appalling industry.
Industrial farming is a source of deadly diseases such as influenza (think bird flu, or swine flu) and most food-borne illnesses (E. coli, salmonella, campylobacter, etc.). Red meat is a known carcinogen, and animal fats increase our risk of heart disease. Meat, dairy and eggs produced in factory farms contain antibiotics, growth hormones and heavy metals. All of our dietary needs can be met easily with a plant-based diet.
Animal agriculture contributes more to climate change through methane and nitrous oxide emission, forest destruction and farm equipment emissions than the combined emissions of all cars, trucks, planes, trains, and ships. Industrial farming creates massive air and water pollution. Extensive areas of rain forest are burned each year for cattle grazing land. The Climate Crisis can not be reversed without addressing animal agriculture.
Killed Every Year
(mostly in industrial "farms")
564,758,251 Sheep (mainly lambs)
Wildlife is affected by our consumption of meat. Bears, coyotes, cougars and beavers are killed by federal agencies to protect animal agriculture.
An utterly misnamed program within the USDA called "Wildlife Services" (funded by your tax dollars) kills millions of wild animals every year at the request of the corporate agriculture lobby using methods that endanger humans and kill countless pets. Their methods are cruel and indiscriminate.
We can only save so many lives at our animal sanctuary. Consider how many animals you can save from a terrible fate if you eliminate or reduce animal products from your diet. You will be healthier as well. Facing the truth about where our animal food comes from is hard, but it’s our responsibility!
