Dairy is a dirty business. There is no such thing as a "laughing cow", dairy cows are not "happy", they do not live in sunny green meadows, nor do they stroll casually along beaches at sunset, nor work in factories cheerfully packing up butter "made by cows". These television adverts are grossly deceptive and depict scenes far from the ugly truth. Cows only produce milk because they've had a baby. Their milk is supposed to be for their calves, but in the dairy industry calves are considered 'unwanted by-products'.. When you drink milk you condemn an innocent calf to death and its mother to a life of slavery. The abuse and suffering that we inflict upon dairy cows is nothing short of appalling. The only reason a cow produces milk is to feed her calf... yet within hours of her giving birth her baby is taken away, leaving both the mother and her youngster desperate with grief and confusion... and all so that we can take the milk for ourselves. And the babies? Terrified, orphaned and alone, they face confinement and death to make veal, or a short, brutal life of slavery like their mother. Dairy cows who in nature would live beyond 25 years are shipped to the slaughterhouse, tired out and totally spent, emotionally and physically, at the age of four or five. By living vegan you are rejecting this cruel practice and saying "Not in my name!"



"The very saddest sound in all my memory was burned into my awareness at age five on my uncle's dairy farm in Wisconsin. A cow had given birth to a beautiful male calf. The mother was allowed to nurse her calf but for a single night. On the second day after birth, my uncle took the calf from the mother and placed him in the veal pen in the barn - only ten yards away, in plain view of the mother. The mother cow could see her infant, smell him, hear him, but could not touch him, comfort him, or nurse him. The heartrending bellows that she poured forth - minute after minute, hour after hour, for five long days - were excruciating to listen to. They are the most poignant and painful auditory memories I carry in my brain." ~Dr. Michael Klaper

11 Facts You Probably Didn’t Know About Bacon

1. Pregnant Pigs Are Kept in Extreme Confinement

The pork industry’s use of gestation crates, which keep pigs immobilized, is one of the worst forms of institutionalized animal abuse in existence. In fact, these crates are so cruel they’ve been banned in nine states and the entire European Union.

2. Bacon (and Other Processed Meats) Could Give You Cancer

Just last year, a study by the World Health Organization placed processed meats like bacon and sausage in the same carcinogenic category as asbestos and smoking cigarettes.



3. Piglets Are Mutilated Without Painkillers

Piglets are taken from their mothers when they’re as young as 10 days old. After having their tails cut off, their teeth clipped, and their testicles ripped out without any painkillers, they’re packed into filthy, overcrowded pens.

4. Pig Farming Is Destroying Our Waterways

With thousands of animals crammed into a single farming facility, millions of tons of feces, urine, and blood require disposal. The result is massive toxic waste lagoons that can become so taxed they overflow and seep into water tables, rivers, and streams, creating a toxic mess.

5. Sick Piglets Are Killed in Horrific Ways

Piglets who are too sick or who aren’t growing fast enough are gruesomely killed. Many are slammed headfirst onto concrete floors, and others are tossed into overcrowded gassing carts where they slowly suffocate from CO2.

6. Pig Farms Are Breeding Grounds for Dangerous Bacteria

On factory farms, antibiotics are used to make animals grow faster and keep them alive in conditions that would otherwise kill them. Bacteria can develop resistance to these antibiotics, making it virtually impossible to treat humanswho become infected by these “superbugs.”

7. No Federal Laws Protect Pigs on Factory Farms

Unfortunately, not a single federal law protects animals during their lives on factory farms. The Humane Methods of Slaughter Act pertains to cows and pigs only at the slaughterhouse, providing zero protection to them for the majority of their lives.

8. Farmers Feed Dead Piglets and Feces to Pigs

In 2013, Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea Virus (PEDV), an often fatal diarrheal illness, killed a tenth of pigs raised for pork. Last year, Fox News reported that farmers were combating the epidemic by feeding pigs manure containing the virus or remains of dead piglets who were infected.

9. Pigs Receive Little to No Veterinary Care

As countless MFA investigations have documented, many pigs are left to suffer from open wounds, serious injuries, and infections without proper veterinary care. As long as factory farmers prioritize profit over animal welfare, animals will pay the price.

10. Bacon (and Other Processed Meats) Can Shorten Your Life

Researchers at Loma Linda University School of Public Health found that vegetarians had a lower risk of obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and death from all causes. Consuming high amounts of processed meats like bacon can increase your risk of premature death by up to 44 percent.


11. Pigs Are Incredibly Smart

Pigs are considered the fifth-most intelligent animal in the world—even more intelligent than dogs—and are capable of playing video games with more focus and success than chimps! Despite this, factory farmers treat them as meat-producing machines.

We can take a stand for animals, the environment, and our own health by ditching pork and other animal products.

Ten Things You Should Know About Eating Eggs

1. Chickens are very intelligent, sensitive and social. They have communication skills as complex as some primates. Karen Davis, PhD, president of United Poultry concerns states that “chickens are endowed with memory and emotion that influence their social behavior, and have a keenly developed consciousness of one another and their surroundings. … chickens recognize each other as individuals, especially after they’ve been separated.”

2. 95% of egg laying hens in the US (nearly 300 million birds) are kept on factory farms, where they spend their lives crammed into battery cages. Battery cages are around 67-76 square inches- smaller than the size of a standard piece of paper. Anywhere from 5-10 birds are kept in one of these.

3. The egg industry is responsible for the deaths of 6 BILLION male chicks yearly- simply because they can’t produce eggs. After hatching, chicks are sexed. Females are sent to lay eggs in a factory farm or sent by mail (which is extremely cruel and often results in the death or injury of the chicks) to suburban farmers. Males are killed either by being ground up alive in a macerator or suffocated to death in the garbage.

4. Hens often will endure a process called force molting. This is when the hen is intentionally starved and kept in the dark for anywhere between 5 and 14 days, resetting her reproductive cycle and causing her to produce a large amount of eggs. This will be done repeatedly until the hen is spent.

5. Hens are slaughtered when their productivity declines, which is usually between 18 and 24 months. If they are not killed on the way to the slaughterhouse, they will be cruelly killed and put into premade supermarket foods like canned soups, frozen dinners and other similar low grade chicken meat products. Chickens whose bodies are too destroyed or who are already deceased will be ground up alive, gassed, thrown into landfills, or turned into livestock feed. Even on “high quality”, certified humane egg farms, it is standard practice to kill the chickens when keeping them is no longer profitable.

6. You might think, “well they make the eggs anyways, why not eat them?” This is untrue. Chickens, even alleged “heritage” breeds, have been severely damaged by selective breeding and hormones which cause them to produce a wildly high amount of eggs- 250 to 300, whereas a wild bird will lay only about 10-15 a year. Not only that, but they will usually die after 4-6 years- if they are not killed first- due to incredibly painful reproductive diseases. The natural lifespan of a chicken is between 10 and 20 years.


7. What about backyard eggs? Well, even ignoring the cruelty that takes place at the hatchery, suburban farming is still unethical. Chickens have no way to consent to the consumption of their eggs, and eating them shows a complete disregard for their bodily autonomy. They also will keep laying eggs so long as they are taken away, because they are trying to create a clutch in an intensely strenuous process. Vast amounts of calcium are leached from their bones to produce the shell as the egg passes through their reproductive system. This is best gained back through the consumption of their eggs and the shell.

8. The egg industry is an environmental disaster. It takes approximately 3 kilos of grain to produce one kilo of eggs. It takes an average of 200 liters of water to produce one single egg, which is 2400 liters (or 634 gallons) to produce a dozen. Egg farms are also largely responsible for ammonia gas emissions due to bird feces. Speaking of feces, poop from farm animals is a major water polluter, having already contaminated over 35,000 miles of rivers in 22 states and contaminated the groundwater in 17.

9. Eggs are not healthy! They’re just not. Eggs are very high in cholesterol, which contributes to the risk of heart disease. A Harvard study found that eating a single egg a day appeared to cut women’s lives as short as smoking 5 cigarettes a day for 15 years. Harvard research also concluded that eating a single egg a day is “associated with increased risk of type 2 diabetes in men and women” and that eating eggs was “positively related to mortality”. The American Dietetic Association has concluded that heart failure risk is higher with higher egg consumption. It has also been discovered that consuming just 2.5 or more eggs a week increases the risk of prostate cancer by 81%. In fact, eggs are not legally allowed to be advertised as healthy or nutritious because it is considered to be false and misleading. However, this does not stop the American Egg Board from having a yearly advertising budget of $10 million, which they maintain via government subsidies.

10. Eggs are easily replaceable. It’s easy to make vegan versions of egg dishes, find substitutes for nutrients found in eggs, replace them in recipes, and to have delicious vegan meals without chicken ovum.

Oil is not found naturally in our environment, it is a man made commodity, and is 100% FAT.   Oil will combine with Cholesterol, acting as a two part epoxy to coat and eventually block Arteries; this causes a domino effect of sickness and disease.

Meat, raw, processed, or cooked, has been classified by W.H.O. (World Health Organization) as Carcinogenic.

Milk (Dairy) is the number one cause of Osteoporoses, for the body does not absorb the calcium from other animals, in fact it uses your own stores of calcium to match and remove the invader.

Dairy is the number one cause of Prostate Cancer in men, and the number one cause Breast Cancer in women.

För dem som känner att dem inte mår bra på en vegansk kost och tror dem behöver kött för att bli tillfredsställd och må bra, vill jag föreslå (the starch solution) att ni äter mer stärkelser, pasta, potatis, ris osv. Självklart är det inte särskilt tillfredsställande med grönsaker och frukt bara.

The food we were born to eat: John McDougall (the starch solution)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5wfMNNr3ak

"the human being is a starch eater"

Ta er tid och lyssna på vad doktorn har att säga om saken.



Ni är inte omnivorer.


“Meat-eaters: have claws

Meat-eaters: have strong hydrochloric acid in stomach to digest meat
Herbivores: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater
Humans: have stomach acid that is 20 times weaker than that of a meat-eater
Meat-eaters: salivary glands in mouth not needed to pre-digest grains and fruits.
Herbivores: well-developed salivary glands which are necessary to pre-digest grains and fruits
Humans: well-developed salivary glands, which are necessary to pre-digest, grains and fruits
Meat-eaters: have acid saliva with no enzyme ptyalin to pre-digest grains
Herbivores: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains
Humans: have alkaline saliva with ptyalin to pre-digest grains”
