Animals are Killed Every Day They do not have to die and suffer..Why do so many animals meet this fate? The only reason is that humans eat them. They are raised for that purpose, and that purpose only. Sunlight rarely touches animals in factory farms, and when they go outside, it is usually to be loaded on a truck soon to be arriving at a slaughterhouse. It does not matter whether it is free-range, organic, or plucked from the wild, it is still murder and murder is still wrong...
For You You were probably brought up believing meat was good for you..It is the main cause of heart disease, and going vegetarian lengthens your life on average 3.6 years. Red meat is also related to many cancers. So ask yourself this, is there any reason why you shouldn't go vegetarian? If you can help yourself and innocent animals, what is the downfall? There is none!
For the Environment You can call yourself an environmentalist, you can recycle, give up your hummer and even bathing regular, but does it really help if you are supporting the main cause of global warming? Face it, cows and pigs are methane machines. Big animals that fart and contribute to that big hole in the ozone layer evryone is talking about!
