Health-Conscious Series #1: Vegan Diet - Why should we start being a Vegetarian
An alarming reality
Eating meat these days (including chicken, pork, beef, fish,etc.) means eating carcasses of abused animals that often refused to be killed.
Animals that are nurtured to be used as food and its products from milk and eggs have been used to abuse and uncomfortable domicile. Most of the animals endure the discomfort to stand and sleep on their urine & feces (mostly pigs).
The truth revealed!
In the Philippines alone , more than 750 million animals (pig, cows, sheeps, chicken) are butchered in factory farms each year. You multiply this with the number of countries around the world, the total will exceed to billion of commercial consumption of these animals.
Cultured meats are the main sources of these diseases:
1. heart diseases
6. acne on elders
7. ear infection
8. early childhood diabetes
90% of Filipinos are lactose-intolerant. As much as I can, I evade milk products from animals because of its adverse effects on me.
Eliminating it from your diet can make your body function properly. For those having weight problems, vegan diet can make them slim.
Reasons why we should stop meat consumptions
- Meat production destroy underground water sources and soil because of the deposited wastes. Animals in the factory farms around the world can create 13 billion metric tons every year, 48 times more than the human wastes.
- Animal production can consume 2.5 trillion liters of water daily, good for every person to take a bath 8 times a day in the whole world.
- Animal pasturing is responsible for the destruction of soil and vegetation that can result to a desert-like landscape. Forests in China and South America were destroyed due to excessive animal pasturing and planting vegetables.
Reports from UN states that if all people will change their diet into vegetarian, the move will help fight the bad effects of climate change.
According to Jason Baker, Vice President for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) Asia for international operation, it's the best way for the animals, plants and ourselves.
Personalities involved on Vegetarian Ad Campaign
International stars who are campaigning along with PETA are the likes of: Pamela Anderson, Natalie Portman, Sir Paul McCartney, Maggie Q., Barbie Hsu and the latest, Alicia Mayer for Asia.
Miss Mayer, was seen lying down naked (with only her arms hiding private parts) on an iron table with the caption: "Meat belongs to the morgue, not on your table. Go Vegetarian!" You can still see the huge billboard along EDSA (Epifanio de los Santos avenue) highway in Metro Manila, if you'll visit the Philippines.
More and more people are getting concerned. The grim reality of Earth's future is at bay if we will don't act now!
