Fear, Ignorance, and Collusion: The Real Reasons Why Experts Dis’ Veganism

Awesome article by Ruby Roth, author of "Vegan is Love", her latest illustrated book for children. Ruby had her book reviewed by Nicole German, a registered dietitian on Diet Blog, whose occupation and critique perfectly exemplify the real reasons why "experts" often dis' veganism: fear, ignorance, and industry collusion.

You can read the article here.

Every time I read statements like this by people that I think 'should know better', I just shake my head wishing people would make the connection between what they eat and health.

For our kid's sake, we have to take a step forward and start educating them about the consequences of our current food system.

Farm to Fridge

"Embracing veganism is not sign that there is anything wrong with vegans. On the contrary. It is a sign that we have learned to think beyond the selfish boundaries of our own desires and actually give a damn about other animals, people and the earth. It is a sign that we are no longer willing to blindly continue to pay people to torture, enslave and kill other animals simply for the sake of our enjoyment." - Comment by Nishemi

Seal Slaughter

Watch "Baby Seal's Sad Last Moments".

After decades of showing the public seal clubbing (read bloody massacre...) on television, newspapers and now the internet, things are starting to change. More countries are banning harp seal pelts, the last one being Russia. They were the biggest market for the Canadian seal fur industry. It is all about demand. Cut the demand and these practices will come to an end.

"We must see with our eyes what they must endure with their bodies"

Thanks to the social media, it's now easier to be aware of what's happening around us and also harder than ever for the corporations to hide anything from the public eye. I believe things will change in regard of "animal rights" and animal welfare because of it.
