Hey guys! I’ll make this a sticky post so everyone could see but I made an animal rights group! Mad Rabbits. I had the idea for it a few months ago and a few weeks ago we were able to buy the domain! If you’re seeing this I would love for you to check it out, I’ll still be posting here as well but I’ll also copy and paste some of my better posts over there! So yeah check it out, share it, join if you want! ‘Till EVERY cage is empty!
Foie gras (French for “fatty liver”) is the product of extreme animal cruelty. Factory farms produce it by force feeding ducks so much that their livers become diseased and enlarged. This causes a tremendous amount of suffering and can make it difficult for the birds to walk and breathe normally.
Few people would want to eat any part of a diseased animal, but in the case of foie gras, consumers eat the diseased organ itself.
Foie gras producers shove pipes down ducks’ throats to force feed them far more than they would ever eat. The force feeding can cause bruises, lacerations, and sores. The duck’s livers may grow to ten times the normal size.
Some foie gras factory farms cram birds into small, filthy cages where they can’t turn around or spread their wings.
2. When you pay for foie gras you pay for the slaughter of ducks, and vice versa
3. Ducks can become so attached to their human friends that they become depressed when they are absent
4. Mother ducks are very protective over their young, factory farming is very stressful for them
1. 17,000 turkey enter boiling hot water alive
2. 45 million turkeys die for thanksgiving, 25 million for Christmas.
3. Baby turkeys (called poults) are very small and like to eat berries. In factory farms animals are fed processed soy/corn that they can’t digest well.
4. Turkeys also have their beaks cut off so they won’t fight.
5. There are many cruelty free Vegan turkey products. Please don’t pay for slaughter
1. The average cage for a chicken in factory farms is smaller than your standard iPad.
2. In the U.S, 614,000 chickens enter boiling water alive
3. Because of genetic manipulation, 26% to 31% of factory farmed chickens suffer from severe leg abnormalities.
4. Because of the small spaces given to chickens, they will become very upset and fight. Instead of making the cages bigger, the industry cuts off the chickens beaks when they’re chicks.
5. Chickens are very loving animals, and also are sentient beings that feel pain.
6. Chickens are just as loveable as your family parrot
7. They are the most abused animal in the meat industry
8. Chickens are pumped full of so many hormones and forced to be such a big size for human consumption, they can barely walk
9. Most chickens are kept in such horrible conditions they die before they can even be slaughtered
10. There are many Vegan chicken substitutes that don’t involve this horror
1. Cows are social animals and usually have best friends
2. They also get excited when they solve problems
3. Incorrect stunning occurs during slaughter so most times they are painfully stunned a second time or the dismemberment begins as they’re still alive
4. Neu5Gc is found only in animal meat, and is a sugar we cannot digest.
5. People who eat meat, especially red meat are more likely to develop cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.
6. Cows are separated from their babies (who are later killed) in slaughterhouses and research shows they grieve this
7. One pound of meat uses 16x the resources (vegetation) we would need to eat the food directly
8. Because one pound of beef uses more than 600 gallons of water, you save more water by not eating it than you do not showering for a year
9. Grass fed beef is even worse for the planet than factory farmed beef
10. There are plenty of Vegan “beef” products that don’t involve killing
1. Milk is probably even worse for you than meat:
2. Cows have to be pregnant or just have given birth in order to lactate- because of this, cows are put on “rape racks” and forcefully inseminated every 9 months or so.
3. If they baby that is born is a male, they will kill him immediately for veal.
4. If the baby is female, the cycle will repeat until she is too old to give milk- at which point she will be sentenced to death.
5. Milk doesn’t have to be cruel, there are many Vegan “dairy” products to choose from.
1. Every single day in the U.S alone, the egg Industry kills more than 500,000 baby chicks either by suffocating or being ground alive because they are of no use to them.
2. Scientific studies show eggs are 2/3 as bad for you as smoking.
3. In the wild, chickens lay around 10-12 eggs a year. The egg Industry forces chickens by chemicals and genetic modification to lay more than 300 eggs a year.
4. Once a chicken cannot lay any more eggs, she is sent to the slaughterhouse to retire.
1. Pigs are just as sentient as dogs and cats, which means they feel pain on physical and emotional levels.
2. Pigs are as aware and sentient as four year old human children.
3. They can learn to play video games.
4. They enjoy soothing music and massages.
5. Pigs are kept in cages so small in factory farms they can’t even turn around.
6. In the factories, pigs are forced to breast feed their babies through cages.
7. Pork increases your daily risk of mortality by 20%
8. In May, the US Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Office of the Inspector General exposed extreme sanitation and humane violations in 30 US swine slaughterhouses it visited and in records of 600 other US plants slaughtering pigs.
9. Because of living conditions, most pigs experience depression and emotional trauma.
10. There are plenty of cruelty free bacons, so why kill?
Hey guys! If you’re a Vegan like me you don’t really care much for alternatives, but some people may miss the taste of meat and are not willing to eat it because of health, enviornmental, animal rights or other reasons- or some may just want more variety in their diet! So here Is a masterpost of Vegan substitutes and ingredient swaps!
