REASONS to GO VEGAN – Presentation

REASONS to GO VEGAN – Presentation



Good evening, and thank you for coming
My name is James, and I’m the Human educator for the animal rights foundation of Florida now
I’m typically giving this presentation to a high school classroom. So my audience is a little different and
(Same level ),
Same level. We’ll find out.
So I pretty much know my audience
Yeah
I can pretty much guarantee that 99% of the kids in the class are
Eating meat dairy and eggs and there might be one or two kids who are vegetarian?
But it’s a very rare occasion where you’ll get a kid who is vegan?
When I speak to adults, it’s a little different. You know
I don’t quite know my audience as well
So I want to get to know you so here’s what I want everybody to do. I want everybody to please stand up
All right now
If you are vegan meaning you choose not to eat any meat of the animal no flesh of the animal no cows
No chickens no pigs. No turkey and no fish all right surprise surprise the fish is not a vegetable
No dairy. No cow’s milk. No cow cheese. No cow butter
No cow ice cream and no eggs, please have a seat, so if you are vegan, please have a seat
Okay, now for the rest of you. You’ll have to remain standing for the rest of the presentation now. Everybody everybody have a seat
There’s another benefit of talking to high school kids, and that’s they’re not afraid to
Participate in the presentation they’ll say whatever is on their mind
Whether I like it or not
But with adults it’s a little bit harder. It’s like pulling teeth now this presentation is designed to be interactive
Meaning I want you to actually participate. I want you to engage and you think about the presentation
It’s like a row shark test, and I show you a picture and you
tell me what you see
So the maturity level is the same as high school students the mushroom people. God
How many of you have ever seen the movie the Matrix?
so
Move more than half of us sorry for those who haven’t seen the movie the Matrix
There’s a scene in the very beginning of the film where the main character is presented with two pills
one Blue and one red
And he has to make a choice if you choose the blue pill
He’ll fall asleep and when he wakes up everything will be exactly the way. It’s always been
If you choose the red pill he’ll finally learn the truth
I’m here today to give you that red pill, but let me make this very clear to you
I’m not here to tell you what to do not here to tell you how to think how to]feel and I’m certainly not here
To tell you what to eat. I’m simply here to provide you with information
Now what you do with that information is solely up to you
So what does the Matrix look like let me show you?
now
Despite what you might be thinking?
These two circles are not equal
I repeat these two circles are not equal one is in fact larger than the other
What I need you to do is determine which one that is
So please raise your hand if you believe the blue circle is larger than the red
alright, please raise your hand if you believe the red circle is larger than the blue
All right, very good now before I said anything about these two circles. What was your first instinct?
Equal right because they look equal the reason why they look equal is because in fact
They are equal these two circles are identical yet
I got just about every one of you to raise your hand and say that they’re not
So what do we learn?
But you can be manipulated like that to believe in something that goes against your natural instincts
just just imagine just
Imagine as a child you’re taught that the blue circle is larger than the red if you say it enough times you convince yourself as
that’s the truth if
you’re told the lie enough times it becomes part of your reality and
If enough people are taught that lie that the blue circle is larger than the red
Well now it becomes part of the culture and if that culture then passes that misinformation
along to the next generation
Will now it becomes tradition, and what we have to remember. Is that just because we have a tradition doesn’t mean it’s morally acceptable
Tradition and morality are not always the same
I mean
Can you think of any traditions that we once had in the united States of America that we no longer have?
That today we think back and that was immoral
Slavery, right? less than two hundred years ago, and that was a tradition
So the traditions we have today doesn’t necessarily mean morally acceptable and as we evolved as a culture
So do our traditions. Now the Matrix is a story
it’s a story when told enough times to enough people it becomes part of that culture, it becomes the tradition and
This story is being told over and over every
Day in fact if you believe the image on the carton is where you’re getting your milk from you’re deceiving yourself
This is a fantasy it only exists in your head
It’s a blue pill Fed to you by the industry to get you to buy their product
This is the Matrix the lie we tell ourselves about where our food is coming from the reality is far more disturbing
90 to 95 percent of the milk
the meat and
The eggs that we consume in the United states are coming from these conditions
This is called Factory farming this is what you take thousands of hens
pigs and
Cows you can find them in two warehouses
In fact every year in the United States 10 billion like 10 billion cows
pigs and
Chickens are being slaughtered for food so what that works out to be is that every second in the United States?
300 animals are killed just like that so 300 600
900 1200 by the time I’m done talking today. There’ll be over a million animals that have been slaughtered
And most of us don’t even blink an eye and how is it possible that in the United States of America?
We can kill we can slaughter 300 animals every second and not question that
because of the story we’ve been told the story justifies the action if
You say it enough times you actually convince yourself. That’s the truth
How many of you were taught as a child you need to eat meat to get protein I know I was
How many of you were taught you need to drink cow’s milk to get strong bones not dog milk?
Not chimpanzee milk not elephant milk not rhino milk, not hippo milk not tiger milk not lion milk
Not giraffe milk, not elephant. Milk. Did I say that already? I think you get the point not even our own mother’s milk
we need to drink cow’s milk to get strong bones the absurdity of drinking the milk from any other species and
Any other being besides our own mother when it’s said enough times loses its absurdness
So all we’re going to do today is find out if the Matrix is telling the truth
Now the first thing we’ve been taught is that our diet is natural and we eat meat dairy and eggs
Therefore it must be natural so let’s find out
You have two images on the wall all right again. Remember the rorschach test
you have two images on the wall
I want you to tell me all the thoughts that come to mind when you see the image on the left and don’t be afraid
To scream out nobody’s going to get sent to the principal. What do you see?
Fresh young sweet right if I came into the room with a basket of strawberries that looked just like that
Organic and I put him on the chair right here now. What would be your thoughts?
Okay, same thoughts. What would you think if one of us got up and started chewing on the strawberries?
Maybe we’d want to join it if I come into the room with a basket
Strawberries, how many of your mouth starts to salivate? your mouth starts to water?
I take a strawberry and I put it under your nose. What do you smell?
If I take a knife, and I slice that strawberry in half and put that under your nose now, what do you smell?
Notice how all the sensations remain the same, you see a strawberry that looks like a strawberry, you smell a strawberry and it smells like
A strawberry and you take a bite out of a strawberry and surprise surprise it tastes like a strawberry
Now exactly it’s a strawberry, but what thoughts come to mind when you see the image on the right
cute
It’s kind of a rigged audience. So you’re in a vegan restaurant
But you know when I go to a classroom
You know half the response you’ll get half the kids who see all cute animal Pig wilbert, babe
So half the class will see an animal and the other half the class will see bacon
Sausage ham pigs feet pork and Hotdogs they’ll see a food
It’s one of the other you’re either seeing an animal or you’re seeing food now
What would happen if I took one of the pigs living brought them into the room right here and put them?
Put him right in front of you does that change it now
What do we see and I mean?
What would we think if one of if one of us got up and starts chewing on the pig?
I’m very normal if I come into the room with a pig under my arm. How many of your mouth starts to salivate right?
I take a pig and I put it into your nose. What do you smell?
smell pig just like if I took a dog and put it under your nose you smell dog
Cat you smell cat I took a knife, and I sliced that pig in half and put that under your nose now
What do you smell?
You smell the stench of death. You smell a rotting Corpse Bacteria
Decomposing flesh you see there’s a process involved and I’m here today to show you that process of how you convert this animal
Into this product why should it be kept the secret?
Why should we not know what we’re participating in and what we’re putting in our body now. Let’s
make the situation slightly more realistic
If I would have put a pig on this side of the room living in a butcher’s knife on side on side of that room
how many people would be willing to pick up the knife and take the life of that animal?
It’s very rare right, and if somebody did that that’s all right
But how many people in this room would try to stop that person from doing that?
Right would we try that of course that’s compassion man is the greatest quality of the human race?
There’s no other species on this plane that has that level of compassion to extend to all living beings
But if you would stop somebody from killing a pig in front of you
And then go home and have this for breakfast let’s call hypocrisy
Just because it comes with a nice neat package all dressed up in your supermarket
Just because you didn’t take the knife and shove it through their jugular
just because you can get blood on your clothes and just because you didn’t hear their screams doesn’t mean you didn’t participate in the killing
Every time we buy this product we are supporting somebody else doing what we ourselves
Wouldn’t want to do when we ourselves wouldn’t want to see and what we ourselves wouldn’t want to hear
Now if you still see bacon sausage ahem, when I bring a pig into the room what happens when I change it to
One sec so like not there we go all right
All right, it’s the common response now. I’ve never heard anybody say yum. Nobody ever sees dog feed [hotdogs]
So why not?
Why don’t we see a food?
Well, we’ve we’ve been accustomed to view this animal as our pet
I mean, how many of you have a dog or a cat right? How many of you have a pig?
not so much all right, so
But there are other cultures
There are other cultures again the cultural story for us is this is your pet in another culture certain parts of the world they eat
Cats and dogs that’s their culture that’s their story. They’ve been told and how do we feel about that a lot of people?
Think it’s disgusting right. I imagine every one of you probably thinks. It’s disgusting to eat a dog
Why would it be disgusting to eat this animal and not disgusting to eat this animal?
Why would it be?
wrong to eat this animal and
Right to eat this animal and most importantly why would it be wrong to kill this animal and right to kill this animal?
It’s culture. It’s the story. It’s the Matrix that we’ve been told
One culture sees this as a pet
This is a food and the culture might see this as a pet and this is a food another culture might seem both is food
Certain parts of India the cow is sacred
They would never think about eating a cow in certain parts of India is that wrong is that unnatural?
That’s just the story they’ve been told but culture is just a story that’s all it is. It’s just make-believe
When I’m concerned with is what is natural to the human species because every culture has a different story
But you take somebody from AsIa, Africa, South America, North America Europe and we’re all the same species
We’re all human beings
so let’s take a free road from any country in the world and
You put that three year old out in a room?
And you line up five animals in front of that three-year-old a pig a dog a cow a cat and a chicken
Do you think the three year old is going to know which one to eat and which one to pet?
What’s the three are most likely going to do or try to do?
Play with them all
he’s going to try to play with them all the three old has to be taught no no no no don’t play with it and
Eat him play with him pet him. That’s what we were taught. We didn’t choose our diet our diet is a learned behavior
We were raised to perceive this animal as your pet and this animal is your food
But that’s not the natural perception the natural perception. Is that they’re all of our our
companions
So our parents chose our diet based upon the cultural story
And if you have children you base their diet on the cultural story being told which is the same story
Now let me give you another example
if
You take a baby and you put a baby in the crib and [you] put on the let out of the right side [of] baby
Chick and on the left side an apple which one do you think the baby is going to try to play with and which one?
You think the baby is going to try to eat?
Most likely I put the inanimate object in this case the apple in his or her mouth and if the baby
You know most likely will be piqued by the interest of the thing moving in this case the thing being actually a living
Being in in the check
Now if the baby tries to eat the chick, what’s the chick in there?
It’s going to run away or peck at him now
If you walked into a room with a baby in the crib playing with an apple and chewing on the head of live chick
What do you think that baby?
Like Demon, baby, you can let me allow that you allow that Demon baby to play with your baby. Set up a playdate probably not
So if it’s not a right for a baby to cause harm to an animal even when they don’t know any better
Why is it become more acceptable as we get older when we do know the difference between an Apple and a baby chick the question?
Is do we find it acceptable to cause harm to an animal well?
Let’s find out if you don’t walk outside right now, and you saw somebody taking a baseball bat to a dog’s head
What would you do you?
take action at the very least you’d call the police because you recognize as a violation of this animal’s right to be free from harm
We’re all given that right at birth
Every animal on this planet, whether it’s a mammal whether it’s an amphibian
whether it’s a bird a reptile fish and insect
We’re all earthlings human beings as well
We are all earthlings
and what do all earthlings have in common two things?
we all want to live we all desire to live that is what is
Creates the equality in all of us we all want to live and the second thing is we all avoid pain
Those two things make us equal from the largest land animal on Earth the elephant to the smallest
the insect the ant and
Everything in between from the dog the pig to the human being we all desire to live and we all avoid pain
now if you were to walk outside right now, and you saw somebody taking a
Baseball bat to a pig’s head with your emotional response not be the exact same thing
Of course because the question for you is what’s the difference? What’s the difference between the two?
right is
there a difference you might think one is cuter than the other but that says more about you than anything about these two animals a
Lot of kids will say well the nose looks different
I say they go, but they both got a nose to smell some kids will say well
He’s got hooves, and he’s got paws
I say they both got feet to walk and run so kids say well
His ears are going up and here’s the ears of flappy
They both got two ears to hear they both got two eyes to see they both got a heart to beat and a mind to
think and the reason why we would take action for both of them is because we recognize the
Equality between them and not the difference any difference is insignificant the similarities though are striking
We know they’re equal yet every time we sit down for a meal. We create that separation. We create that inequality
It’s just like we knew the two circles
Where equal red and blue, but all it takes is somebody to tell you a story now
Then what we most importantly recognize is that all animals have feelings?
How do we know and how do we really know how do we even know that humans have feelings?
Well, I mean of these feelings. What’s most important to you
Happiness right how do you know if somebody’s happy if I said to you right now?
This is the happiest moment in my life would you believe me
Hopefully not, no offense. So how are you going to tell somebody’s happy ?they’re smiling
They’re laughing, and I could take somebody in in this room who doesn’t speak your language?
But you can tell how they’re they’re feeling by their expressions the sounds doesn’t have to do with a language though
What about other animals will they wag their tail? They bark?
They jump up and down they play with each other
They lick so all these are signs of how they feel what about pain though
If I said to you right now, my right hand is killing me would you believe me I?
Haven’t given you any sign. it might though, it might be
There’s only one person in this room who knows it’s actually killing me. That’s me of course
I say what let’s say
I was to trip over my feet here though
And nail my head against the side of this table start bleeding profusely out of my head
And I’m screaming on the ground when you believe I’m in pain of course
I’m showing the signs here’s a test you take your hand you put over a flame. What happens
Burns right, what’s your reaction?
pull back and scream you take a
Dog’s paw put it over a flame. What’s his reaction?
Same thing pull back and scream you take a pig’s leg put it over a flame
Same reaction you take a dog a pig a cow a chicken a goat a dock a horse a rat a mouse any animal
That’s living put a body part of the flame
They all have the same reaction you take a fish out of water and what’s their reaction?
Flopping around why I can’t breathe you want to know what it feels like to be a fish out of water
Have you have your loved one?
Put your put your head under water and not let go I really won’t be your loved one though. They’re doing that
That’s what it feels like course fish have feelings
They’re not they’re not vegetables if you take a vegetable you take a plant you
Take a strawberry and you put it over a flame and what happens
melts. doesn’t have feet to run away
Doesn’t have a mouth to scream and nose to smell eyes to see ears to hear a heart to beat and a mind to think
And a lot of kids will like to give this one before you say well plants have feelings. They don’t have a nervous system
They don’t have a nervous system without a nervous system. They can’t feel pain and happiness the way that animals and humans can
So the question is when did we learn this when did we learn that animals have feelings?
Hopefully this isn’t the first day that you learn this, right? when you’re younger, right? And how do you learn it?
Maybe you had a cat or dog
All you have to do is go outside and just experience any of the animals outside
and they run from you it means they’re scared if they come up to you probably have food or something they want it, so
We understand this through the experiences
We have in fact think about the books that were read to you as a child
songs as you listen to and how about the movies now think about the movies
We show to our kids what all these movies have in common?
what are they about?
what kind of animals
Farmed animals even fish are being farmed you have pigs chickens cows and fish these are all the animals we eat
What’s the common theme in these movies?
They’re running others being saved
No animal wants to die. No animal wants to be dinner on your plate
you know we root for these animals
you take even the biggest pork eater in the world is he’s ruining for Wilbur nobody wants to see
made into bacon at the end of that film
Chicken run, you know we root for the chickens now
I guarantee there are a thousand people’s you know watching chicken run. Go, chickens Go !
well you need KFC bucket of chicken wings because I’m not making that connection
Babe, how many kids watch the movie babe fall in love with babe?
And then go home and a fed babe unknowingly by their parents
So we’re teaching kids to love these animals but eat them too
and this is the closest thing you’ll come to see their reality in the matrix in the story, we’ve told ourselves and
most of the times and unfortunately the closest thing will come to is in cartoon form
And why is it by Pixar and Disney nonetheless?
But today we step outside the Matrix and generally speaking when I go into a high school classroom
I show meet your meat if you haven’t seen this video if you still are eating meat dairy
eggs fish take a look at a meat organ dat org
and you can see the conditions that these animals live in I’m not going to show you that it’s it’s a
Every time I show to adults. They just leave and he’ll come back
So I’m going to show you a three-minute video again by the the same people that put on the first video farm Sanctuary
it’s three minutes
if you don’t want to watch it
You don’t have to but this is where 90 to 95% of the meat dairy and eggs
And we’re consuming united states are coming from and then you really if you have a problem watching it
But you don’t have a problem eating it you know why the disconnect there?
But this isn’t just about animal rights. This is also a health issue, and that’s the second part of the presentation
We’ll we’ll talk about after the video
The question is, do these animals look healthy? Do the conditions
They’re living in look healthy because if the animals don’t look healthy to you
Why would you want to put a sick animal into your body?
One last thing before I show the video a lot of people say what about what about you know milk?
It doesn’t seem to be any harm in in raising cows for milk
notice the very first scene in this video of the Dairy cows
And you’re going to actually see a cow giving birth and notice what happens to her calf and notice her response
If I could talk to animals that are being confined in and abused now in Factory farms
I would say I’m sorry for what we’re doing to you
I wish it wasn’t this way, and I’m doing everything I know to stop it and
Hopefully, we will be able to stop it. There’s not really a whole lot of good you can say I mean you just got a
just got a hope that it can stop and hope that
People will recognize
The harm. We’re causing and we’ll choose a different way
Meat milk and eggs come from real animals. They don’t just come from the grocery store and these animals
desire to live and they want to be free of pain and suffering and fear and
on today’s farms, these animals only know fear and pain at human hands they never know human kindness they never know Mercy and
When people buy these products they are unwittingly supporting
That type of cruelty in that type of callousness
the workers
They have to lose part of their heart you know they have to lose
They have to shut their eyes to certain aspects of what they’re doing can you imagine what it would be like to
Cut the throats of animals for eight hours a day
It’s a bloody violent job and nobody should have to do it. I
Don’t know what it means that you know we can participate in such cruelty
without paying attention to it without
caring about it without
wanting to do different
Citizens want to assume that animals will be treated humanely that there are laws on the books to prevent cruelty
and
People are usually surprised to learn there aren’t
If people looked at what was happening
They’d be appalled most people would not support the type of abuse that has become common on Factory farms
The common response is why is this happening? And there’s a very simple explanation for why it why it does happen?
If you were to walk outside right now if you walk down us one and walk further down
Let’s say you came to a restaurant that just opened up right they were serving cats and dogs
That was their main item on the menu how many of you would be out there right now protesting
Guarantee before the day would be over you would have that place shut down, right?
Walk down the street few blocks down you’ll come to a steak house. I don’t see anybody protesting
I don’t see that place being shut down
why because because
We’ve been taught to perceive this animal to be different from this animal and veganism is simply changing your perception
That’s it. That’s all it is you just change your perception
We don’t have to participate in this this is not necessary a lot of people will say to me
What about you know if we just created better conditions?
When I’m saying to you is it’s not necessary to kill an animal you don’t have to kill animals
We don’t have to drink their milk enough to eat their eggs. It’s just not necessary. I mean people talk about humane slaughter
How do you how do you slaughter something humanely?
And then said like where you rub their belly give them some milk and cookies
And you chop their head off if I did that to one of you would never be like well at least he died humanely
He can’t do anything violent humanely
I mean if I were to actually mainly Rob you
humanely rape you what is what is humane theft look like is that where I come up to you and say I need you to
Do me a favor. I need you to come up here and take your wallet put it on the table right here
Take all the credit cards cash everything put it on the table right there pretty please with a cherry on top
Would that be humane theft we would everybody be like hey if I’m going to get robbed. I want him to do it
He’s pretty nice about it. Of course not nobody wants to be robbed nobody wants to be killed nobody wants to be raped
it’s not
Necessary to think about it this way
How many of you do not do not own a fur coat raise your head if you don’t don’t own a fur coat. Yeah
so I thought
Why why don’t you own a fur coat?
Because it’s cruel and unnecessary because it’s cruel and unnecessary. What about if I said to you know what?
We’re going to take some mix sorry. We’re gonna raise them for you. No fur coat
We’re going to make we’re gonna raise them, but we’re gonna we’re gonna you know give them a lot of room
we’re going to cage free free range organic
Food they’re going to you know they’re going to live like Kings and Queens
Until we kill them of course you know after after a few few weeks a few months
you know they won’t live to their natural age, but
We’re going to create humane fur would that be acceptable when you go out and buy a fur coat
No, because it’s not necessary a fur coat is not necessary, especially here in Florida, but it’s not necessary anywhere
You don’t need a fur coat to survive you don’t need these animals to survive. It’s not necessary
It’s just sugar coating something humane slaughter
So let’s take a look at what we are participating in this is a battery cage, all right?
Literally the size of a milk crate
Just like this you take four to six hands you put them in a crate this size, and you burn their beaks off. Why?
Because in these conditions they become aggressive
Yeah, be like if I took everybody in the first and second row put you in that corner and sealed it off
Kept you there for you know
48 hours straight
Guarantee you’re not going to remain friends for that long you want more space
So they’re denied the ability to do what’s natural to them spread their wings forage
So how does the industry, industry solve this problem cage free free range?
And that sounds pretty good who in this room doesn’t want to live free right?
This is a cage free farm in Virginia. It’s just a label. It’s just a label
It makes us feel better about what we’re participating in but it needs absolutely nothing to the animal
Cage free simply means you can take five hundred hens and put them in this room
According to the industry that is cage free question is what is your definition of freedom does this apply?
now even on
The you know old Macdonald’s farm that we all have stuck in our head even if you find that magical farm and good luck finding
it
Doesn’t matter because all male chicks born in the egg industry
Thrown out literally
Why seems kind of wasteful why threw out the male chicks?
They don’t fit into the equation. they don’t serve any purpose to the industry so we cage them we Debeak them
We still cage them call call it freedom though
We can still Debeak them in these conditions, and we throw out all the mail tricks whether it’s cage free free range organic
What’s in the wrong way?
All so that we can have this
Well might as well get to know what it is was an egg a lot of people think it’s a baby chick
It’s not a baby chick a lot of people think it’s a fetus. It’s not a fetus not an embryo just good
I mean, I don’t know why anybody want eat a fetus or an Embryo in the first place, so what is it well?
It’s an unfertilized egg that doesn’t sound that bad at all all right well once a month that every woman in this [room]
Maybe not every room in this room sheds or at some point sheds an unfertilized egg. What is that called?
Congratulations needing a hen period It’s the menstruation cycle discharge of a hen
I’m not gonna eat a woman’s period Just like why should I have a hen period There’s no need to eat any
Period from any living being it’s disgusting and you know we should call it what it is
I mean if we were just you know at the when we were young when we were kids
And you know our parent said hey, you want some scrambled hen periods for breakfast I’ll pass
You know it’s like honey. What is honey?
Yeah, it’s vomit it’s it’s regurgitate throw up they throw up for their own cells
They take the nectar they digest it an] they throw up it’s for their own cells
They’re not producing it for us
we call it honey because who in their right mind we want to buy a product called bee vomit and
You know if you put vomit next to any any any product in the supermarket I guarantee is not going to sell
I’ll take a business aspect to realize that all right
What about milk well even your happy cows in California are hooked up to machines?
This is this is the way it is all right now when does a cow start producing milk
During during pregnancy starts lactating during pregnancy, right?
It’s fine. I’ve been to a lot of schools, and I’ll get even high school teachers who will say, huh?
I didn’t know that. I just thought there was this magical cow that just produced milk
Okay, all ho mammals produce milk when they’re pregnant and how does she become pregnant oh
We like to think they get to have sex right at the very least they get the pleasure of sex
But there’s no sex on the farm the farmers not going to wait for a cow on a bull to get it on he’s not
Gonna set the mood like some candles put on Barry white is the business?
he’s running a business you know and the business is not in the welfare of the animals and
Producing a profit so how do you get a cow pregnant without a bull?
Artificially inseminate them if you artificially inseminate a woman without a consent won’t that be called ?
I Am not saying a woman is a cow, but I am saying rape is rape
I mean, just look up the definition of rape exerting your power
over another
Sexually, so what’s your definition of another does that only apply to women how about men?
How about other beings well now she’s pregnant she gives birth. What happens to her, baby?
all male calves born the dairy industry like the if you were here in the beginning the saving Billy all male calves born in the
Dairy industry are immediately taken away from their mother
chained by the neck to a crate
Deprived of the mother’s milk fed an inefficient diet so that the body become anemic so lack of iron
They will never be able to turn around will never see the light of day every glass of milk
supports this industry and some people say well veal is the cruelest industry or Foie-gras where they shove a pipe down a
Duck’s throat
Cruelest industry, how do you how do you put pain in some kind of like okay? Well?
It’s pretty bad right here, but it’s not so bad here. Pain is pain suffering is suffering don’t categorize it
This is all suffering for these animals
Why do they do that to the male calves?
Just like the male chicks they don’t fit into the equation
They don’t produce the milk if you’re drinking cow’s milk
The only reason is because a calf chained to a box, isn’t it? now what about the female calves
they too will be taken away from the mother why why would
Why would the female calf that will grow up to be like her mother? Which is a constant cycle of
Impregnation birth and milking why would she be taken away from the mother?
Right we want the milk. How do you think it makes a cow feel to have her baby to torn away from her?
Anybody who is a parent and how would you feel if you had your baby torn away from you?
All milk whether it’s organic
meaning they don’t put in you know the hormones and the pesticides
Doesn’t matter all milk is stress milk. That’s not something you pasteurize out of the the milk it’s part of it
It’s part of the it’s like it’s part of the meat part of the part of the cheese. It’s part of what you’re drinking
It’s stress now
Biologically speaking who was a cow producing milk for biologically speaking
the baby. not for us
Just like you know when your mom was pregnant with you who she producing milk for it was for you
It wasn’t your daddy. It wasn’t the neighbor
It wasn’t the dog or the cat it was for you all mammals produce milk for their young
Where do all these animals get their milk from when do they stop consuming milk?
We’re the only species on this planet to take the milk from another animal
And we’re their only species on this planet to continue drinking milk after infancy if you really don’t [think] it’s that weird that people like
People say well you don’t you don’t eat cheese. She’s just spoiled milk. You don’t need you. Don’t need cheese
You don’t join cow’s milk. That’s that’s extreme. That’s crazy. Is it really that extreme to not take the milk from another animal?
I mean, and if you don’t think it’s that extreme if I brought a pregnant woman into the room right now
How many of you would want to drink her milk? You’re not you’re not you’re not a baby. It is extreme now if
Cow’s milk is meant for a calf if cow’s milk is biologically meant for a calf
Why would it be necessary for humans to drink?
It’s not cow’s milk is no more necessary than drinking dog milk chip milk pig milk or elephant milk the only milk
You need was from your mother when you were a baby. You’re not a baby anymore. You’re not a cow. You’re not a calf
Well, what about if I said to you? You know you’re walking in Publix, Whole Foods Winn-dixie
Maybe Winn-dixie more likely and you come across
Not cow milk, but chimpanzee milk. That’s why I said Winn-dixie
No Offense, . I just I don’t I can’t pick you. Well. I don’t know maybe hopefully but um all right so chimpanzee milk, right?
How many of you would buy it?
probably not that’s
Disgusting why would it be disgusting to take the milk from one animal but not the disgusting to take the milk from another animal?
In fact if you’re drinking cow’s milk, and you find chimpanzee milk. I’d say make the switch. It makes more sense
Why would it make more sense to take the milk of a chimpanzee?
Hey, look if you’re going to take the milk from any animal wouldn’t you want to take the milk from an animal that Shares 98%?
Of our DnA
99% I mean doesn’t that seem to be the logical conclusion? I i choose you that would seem the logical conclusion
What about your dog if your dog was pregnant right now, and I said I uh pasteurize your dog’s milk
But you want to drink it that’s disgusting that’s absurd it is disgusting and absurd no more disgusting and absurd than drinking
Cow’s milk tough. in fact if you have a dog it actually makes more sense to drink dog milk the cow milk
Why is that? Well? How many of you have a large dog?
Okay, how much does your dog weigh?
110 wow okay. I doubt
We’re gonna dog
There we go all right 110 pounds. That’s pretty close to the human weight right under 10 pounds that seems to make sense
This animal weighs 2,000 pounds why put a product meant for a 2000 pound animal into this
and a baby doesn’t even know why all right a
baby on average weighs 7 pounds at birth I
Really don’t know where I’m supposed to be pointing this it’s like a magical wand
there we go um a
Calf weighs 90 pounds at birth at birth 90 pounds baby 7 pounds calf 90 pounds
The calf will grow to 500 pounds in under a year in nine months
410 pounds in under a year what makes them grow so large so fast
The milk but of course they’re not getting the milk and if it’s not organic. What are they getting?
Hormones they’re getting steroids again. That’s not something you pasteurize out of the milk and
How do you keep animals healthy?
in these conditions you
pump them up with antibiotics
70 percent of the antibiotics produced in the United States are fed to farm animals
That’s not good. That is not good
You know you wonder why so many people are dying in the hospitals they get some infection
And they take these antibiotics, and they don’t work anymore
so
How do we how do we justify how do we actually justify putting a?
Product meant for a 2000 pound animal they grow to 2,000 pounds in two years into this
Well the story once again the story justifies the action say it enough times you convince yourself. It’s the truth
Every story has an author who is the author of this story?
Crowd: (Dairy industry. )
Right and what is the ultimate goal of the dairy industry?
Crowd: I don’t know I mean, why would the dairy industry be some holier than thou company?
I mean if I said to you cigarettes, “it does a body good” You probably say I work for the cigarette company
Right we none of us would believe that
but why believe this and if you believe that milk does a body good, why would
75 percent of the Human population be lactose Intolerant
Do you know what that means that means 3 out of every 4 people in this planet when they drink milk they suffer one of?
these symptoms diarrhea stomach ache gassiness bloated ear infection Excess mucus
and that’s normal if you suffer from any of these symptoms stop drinking
Cow’s milk your body’s trying to talk to you your body’s saying look. I can’t do it anymore stop
Listen to your body your body knows best of course the dairy industry will come up with a new product called
What lactate they just they just they just put they put the enzyme you see the reason why most people are lactose?
Intolerant is because all mammals and human beings are mammals have an enzyme known as lactase put an a right there that
Enzyme breaks down the Sugar known as lactose as we mature we lose that enzyme, so it’s normal to be lactose intolerant
but of course the dairy industry
Starts injecting the enzyme into it
That’s not normal. That’s not natural and again you’re going against what your body is telling you. You know.
The dairy industry says listen to us. We know better than your body. They don’t your body knows best. You are your best doctor
But it must be good for kids though, right? I mean cuz every school
I’ve been into Elementary middle and high school is all one product being served
What product is that? Milk. but what’s the number one cause of food allergies among infants and children everyone wild guess?
no, shit, all right, so
If most people on this planet can’t consume milk and most people most children and infants
If they have an allergy it’s it’s from milk cows milk and not not peanuts, but Cow’s milk
why again are we drinking this?
What what have we been told drink milk get strong bones?
Does a body good what does about it good?
Calcium does a body good the question is is this the best source of calcium let’s find out
Countries that consume the most milk what countries drink the most milk
I go into classrooms and you get kids being like Florida
norway would be on this list as well. what is osteoporosis?
It’s a loss of bone density. It’s literally weak bones remember what you’ve been taught… drink cow’s milk, get strong bones
What countries have the highest rate of osteoporosis?
All right, well neither is just a random coincidence
Or there’s more to it
The more to it is this any product that comes from an animal has animal protein that makes sense animal product
animal protein
Well that animal protein. You know because protein is the amino acids the building blocks of protein those amino acids which are good
Unfortunately though, they’re high in sulfur
So you want amino acids?
But the problem with animal protein is that those amino acids are high in sulfur when you put that in your body
your body becomes acidic
you’re making your
Body acidic and your body’s not meant to be acidic
It’s meant to be alkaline right the ph balance is going lower than what it should be so
How does your body Compensate ?
well they have to neutralize the acidity so what do they do they start releasing calcium from the bones?
So the more cow’s milk you drink according to these statistics
the weaker Your bones can actually become
the more animal protein you eat the weaker your bones can actually become in fact if you look at countries in Africa [and] Asia they
Don’t suffer from very high rates of osteoporosis
they also don’t drink very much
Cow’s milk if none at all and they also don’t eat as much animal protein now kids will say yeah
But wait a second, what do I put on my cereal? problem solved.
Right it’s because this information isn’t out there, i mean it’s out there but people aren’t being taught it
And this is you know this is basically the alternative perspective
And you know you can do your own research and find out if what I’m saying is valid or not
But I mean you can go with these alternative milks a lot of people out fake meats and fake milks no
They’re not fake they’re real alright. These are real products and they come from plants you have the soy milk
The almond milk rice milk coconut milk oat. Milk. You can do hemp milk high in protein
So these are alternatives that you can do I?
Know you’ve all heard of a taste test right let’s do a health test alright. So here
We have the milk that comes from an animal and here we have the milk that comes from a plant a Soybean
All right, there is a hundred and fifty milligrams of calcium per half a glass in your cow’s milk
How many do you think is in your soy milk?
It’s the same 150 it’s exact same and a half glass all right
so what’s the difference well this comes from an animal and once again an animal protein can leach calcium out of the bones and
All animal products meat dairy eggs. Fish is high in cholesterol. It has cholesterol and your body naturally makes cholesterol
You don’t need to put any more cholesterol in your body, so this has cholesterol
this doesn’t. All plant products don’t have any cholesterol and
All plant products everything you see up here everything you see over there on the table
Fruits vegetables rice beans has fiber has fiber
So plants have fiber no cholesterol animal products no fiber and high in cholesterol, so again
Let’s do a health test high in cholesterol
No fiber
High in fiber. No cholesterol, which one do you think is the safer Choice I?
Rest my case all right?
But you don’t have to do this
I mean human beings don’t really need to drink anything besides water
And that’s really all we need to be drinking and you can have your orange juice and your apple juice
But we just need water now again. This is for the cereal
but you can get all your calcium from plants. I mean you think about what is the largest and strongest land animal on Earth
an elephant weighs 10,000 pounds you know, what is diet consists of
That’s it. If he’s eating spinach, but
It’s his plants. her plants. You’re gonna tell an elephant then you know his bones. Look a little weak
It needs to be drinking the milk of a cow you get all your calcium from this
Now a lot of people say to me
oh, man, but you know what I get it, but then I I love my cheese. I can’t give up cheese
Look, I tell people this if you’re going to give up any product give up dairy
There is the worst, I mean the greatest trick ever pulled was convincing people. They need to drink milk
Dairy is the worst in terms of the cruelty inflicted upon the animals they suffer for a longer period of time
And it’s just completely unnatural and unhealthy is
Unhealthy, and there’s a reason why
people Love their cheese, and their milk. It’s meant to be addictive. I mean just think about you know it might be hard
I can’t remember but you know when we were younger most likely we were nursing from our mother. right? from her milk
it has to be addictive the child wants that has to want to have more why because
This is the greatest growth spurt in their life
This is the greatest growth spurt that you ever had when you were baby drinking your mother’s milk
same for all other animals and as we get older our parents including the animal parents wean their children off of it, [so]
You’re supposed to
You’re supposed to desire it. You’re supposed to want it and then you get weaned off of it
They’re selling a product. It’s addictive. It’s addictive
It has a chemical called Casein morphine when you digest it that chemical is released okay, so morphine morphine. It makes you giddy
It makes you want more. It makes your brain thing eat more eat more your body is saying I can’t I can’t digest it properly
So you are addicted the first step to what a recovery is to acknowledge it
68% of all disease in the United States are diet related. this is a government statistic
What that means is that you know especially when I talk to a high school class where?
my audience is you know 99 percent eating meat dairy and eggs if you don’t change your
Food choices you might become part of the statistic. I mean it’s what three out of every five people
This is a government statistic
In fact, what are the leading causes of death in the United States? What are the top three?
cancer Heart disease
Strokes diabetes number six all right every forty seconds somebody suffers a stroke in the United States, and that’s the American stroke
Association
the American Heart association says that every 24 seconds somebody suffers a heart attack in the United states and
the institute for Cancer research says that
every day
3400 people in the United States are diagnosed with cancer at
3,400 new people how many people in this room know somebody or knew somebody who has or had cancer raise your hand
Take a look around you – this is only find this a little disturbing. I mean
We might be living longer
But we’re living longer with diseases that haven’t been around
That that that they’re more rampant than they ever have been in fact I’ve been reading that they say that
the children today the young generation today will die at a
Younger age than their parents meaning that you know if your parents live in
275 they might die at 70 and we’re just going down
How is that possible in fact is the 68% coming from the image on the right or the left I?
Mean you ever heard of somebody suffering a heart attack because ate too many fruits and vegetables
It’s not heard of a key to a healthy diet is a variety of foods in a variety of colors
How much variety do you really city in fact why why is this causing most of the death and disease?
Because despite what we’ve been told despite. What we’ve been taught. We look nothing like omnivores biologically speaking
We don’t look anything like carnivores we look identical
Biologically speaking to our brother from another mother. We look like gorillas. We look like the great apes
We look like the horses the cows the giraffes
the elephants
Zebras how so our teeth not my deeper
canines I
Love when people say what about our canines? Really you really think they’re very sharp
I mean if I if we had like sharp canines like our cats and dogs
And if you really think you have canine teeth or shop. Take a look at your cat, or dog
I mean would we be using knives and forks if we had these right?
we have more teeth]why?
We chew our food you know tonight when you’re feeding your cat or dog notice what they do limited chewing mostly swallowing our
Jaw
Goes like this we grind our food
Their jaw opens up wide in fact if you want to know what humane slaughter looks like here it is look at the animal Kingdom
the fastest land animal is
The cheetah go 70 miles per hour now a tiger can go about I think it’s about
35 – 40 miles per hour is pretty quick. now. you have the deer the antelope the gazelle not as fast right, so you have carnivores
Tiger cheetah Jaguar and then you have the deer antelope
and the gazelle so herbivores carnivores
Now the carnivores are quicker
But what’s what’s the difference here? We got on the right side all right?I guess it would be your left side
The carnivores are all the track and field stars
quick Sprint out of breath they don’t have very much endurance on the left side or
again on the right side for you, this would be the herbivores which don’t have as much speed, but have more endurance endurance
they are the cross-Country Runners, so
what we like to assume or maybe not we don’t like to assume, but
Logic would say okay that the faster animal would always get his prey but that’s not the case. It’s not the case because you have
Track and field versus cross country so that means that the tiger is only successful in the hunt twenty percent of the time that means
Eight out of every ten deer will escape the slaughter so what kind of deer will the tiger be able to capture?
The sick the weak the injured the lost the old the young this animal weeds out the weak
We’re not doing anything like that
In fact if we were meant to be on top of the food chain don’t you think we would have some claws to rip through?
Flesh and if I brought a pig into the room and asked you to kill the pig with your claws
Pig would probably enjoy it more than anything else
And this is perhaps most important your intestines and symbol with my representative
small intestines large intestines also known as the colon small and large now your
Intestines combine large and small make up 10 times your body size your body being your mouth to your anus
Which is about three feet and multiply that by 10?
And you have 30 feet of intestines in your stomach and it’s you know from this wall through that door 30 feet of intestines
in your stomach
Carnivores omnivores, it’s about three to six times their body length
so let’s say that Simba would be about you know anywhere from 15 to 20 feet
30 feet 15 feet whose food gets traveled out quicker
Simba’s which is good because you can call it bacon as much as you want but once it’s in your body
It’s no longer bacon. It’s decomposing Flesh
It’s Bacteria, and it builds up and they have by the way ten times the amount of hydrochloric acid to break it down
So we don’t even have the ph balance of the enzymes that break it down properly
so what happens it leads to clogged arteries which leads to heart disease heart attack strokes diabetes high blood pressure high cholesterol and
obesity
You ever heard of a tiger suffering from high blood pressure high cholesterol strokes
Obesity you know why these animals don’t suffer from these diseases
Because they eat what’s natural to their anatomy when it comes to diet. We have the dumbest species on this planet?
what do these two things have in common
Mercury in fact there’s a warning label. There’s a warning label on fish. I don’t know if you ever seen it
You know what it says certain people should consume it men and women
Pregnant women all right . all right pregnant nursing women, women who may become pregnant young children
She’s not the following fish including tuna because nearly all fish and seafood contain some amount of Mercury
Chemicals known to cause cancer birth defects and reproductive harm. What else does the government tell women not to consume when they’re pregnant?
alcohol cigarettes drugs
so basically government say hey look if you think about becoming pregnant lay off the drugs for a little bit and
Stop eating fish if you can do that much harm to a woman why would anybody want to consume it
And I mean do I really need to, you know, say at this point
Do any one of us want to touch, any food that comes from the sea?
Mmm. All you gotta do is turn on the news open up a newspaper, and what do you see?
oil spill
Why why would you want to put this? I mean here’s how it works you take you take the small fish in the gulf
Right now right very very small fish that small fish is inevitably going to swallow some oil. It’s Gonna Swim further out
they’d be miles away from from the spill and will get eaten by a larger fish
and then that larger fish is now contaminated and will swim out even further and that larger fish will then get eaten by
Even larger fish now that even larger fish is contaminated with oil, and then we catch that even larger fish and then we eat it
Cooking the animal is not going to get rid of the oil it becomes part of the meat
So why do we consume it though?
why do we consume you know this this this flesh of an animal what you’ve been told you need to eat meat to get
protein
protein right
But how many grams of protein are we supposed to get?
anybody
Okay in terms of grams per day
It’d be about world health organisation says forty to fifty, about that, forty would be for the average female, fifty
Would be for the average male tough it’s funny. How we don’t tell that to kids
I mean, I only learned this recently myself, too
I mean
You know going through my whole life and never really
Bothering to find out nobody ever bothered to tell me it’s like you know saying here. Have the keys to my car
Go, you know pick up some stuff from me. Go get my groceries, but I didn’t teach you how to drive the car
Teaching kids you gotta eat it but not teaching them how or how much now again?
Let me show you how easy it is to get protein all right?
Especially here in the United States
All right your stAndard American diet for breakfast you got your bacon you got your cow’s milk
And you got your hen periods all right how many slices how many slices of bacon what you want now?
I know you might not eat bacon now, but how many slices do you remember as a kid maybe?
Maybe two okay each slice is 5 grams 2 Times 5?
All right, how many eggs would you want to each egg has 6 grams? So what do we got 12 plus 10?
22 how many glass of milk one glass each glass is 8 grams?
So you are at what 30 you’re not even done with breakfast. That’s not including the
Toast with cow butter you might put on it
so you’re not even done with breakfast and
You’re almost at the limit the average American does not need to worry about getting enough protein
They need to worry about getting too much protein
That’s why the united states has the highest rates of obesity in the entire world all right
I mean people are testing change. Well, you don’t need meat
Where’d you get your protein from like all of a sudden like holy shit like it’s always
Undaunted me like I have been without protein for the last eight years let’s go to McDonald’s get a Big Mac
Like I’m about to fall down or something to pass out
have you ever heard of somebody in the United States suffering from a lack of protein and going to the hospital?
It’s unheard of yeah, it’s funny even dealing with kids. You know of a kid say, you know I?
Tried to go vegan for a day, and I got really sick so what it’s like. It’s like. It’s like
You know like people they oh, I know somebody was vegan. It was sick really I know tons of meat Eaters
Who are sick? I mean like yeah, you can be an unhealthy vegan
What I’m telling you is it doesn’t matter if you’re eating meat dairy eggs fish
Or you’re eating a plant-based that you should know what you’re putting in your body
You should know how how many grams of protein you’re getting you know you know the amount of iron calcium that you’re getting
And by the way people say omega-3 from fish you can get that from you know the seeds the nuts
You can get that from other things flax seeds is a very good example
Think about this
These are the largest and strongest land animals on Earth
What is their diet consists of plants you’re in good company if you’re only eating plants?
And what’s what’s so ironic about this is that the large and strongest land
Animals not only do they not just just eat a plant-based diet
They also live the longest
this animal can live the 70 years they can live to about 50 to 60
years the gorillas about 50 years in the wild and their diet consists of nothing but plants I
Mean you’re Gonna tell any of them. They’re missing out in protein
I mean this animal has 10 times the upper-body strength of the average male adult and
Where is he getting all his protein from from this his diet consists of Roots shoots Bamboo and banana?
He’s getting all his calcium all his iron all his vitamins all those minerals the amino acids from this
You get everything
everything
Here’s a new food pyramid alright
There’s two things your body is like a machine, okay?
Think of your body as a machine you have to put the proper fuels in it to get it to work properly if you don’t
Put the proper Fuels
It ain’t going to work and if you put fuels that aren’t as good quality of others that will lead to heart disease
Cancers strokes diabetes obesity high blood pressure high cholesterol, it’s like if you take a porsche and you fill it up with diesel. What happens?
You just screwed the car up right and I guarantee what are people going to say to you when you say heaven I?
I put diesel in my car today
You know what they’re gonna say to you I guarantee they say fuck is wrong with you. No offense
When somebody puts a hamburger in their mouth nobody say what the fuck is wrong. Stop stop all right
You get everything all right? I know I said pick up your body is machine now think of your body as a house
I love I love analogies
Think of your body as a house right to build a house you got to start with a foundation
You can’t start with the roof. Here’s the foundation
This is the foundation
This is where all that starts the fruits and vegetables key to a healthy diet variety of Foods a variety of colors you get
everything from this right and then you build your walls with legumes the beans and
You got the whole Grains the wheat the pasta the spaghetti the rice the breads and on top your roof
You got your nuts and seeds you can get everything from this everything all your vitamins a b
C vitamin D from the sun you had all your calcium all your iron your omega-3 all your protein the amino acids
Everything from this everything now. I know I’m a skinny white dude with glasses telling you get enough protein
But these guys aren’t skinny only one of them’s white so as you can see these guys
Their diet consists of no meat no dairy no eggs. No fish there might be some variations that you know Tony Gonzalez
He might be eating fish you know
I don’t don’t hold me to it, but I know prince fielder who is your 2009 homerun King home run Derby King
No meat. No dairy yet. No eggs
No, fish Mac Danzig who fights in the ultimate fighter hit season one champion UFC fighter. No meat no dairy no eggs
No, fish, so you can still excel at you know your sports. You can still gain muscle, mass on a plant-based diet again
Just remember the gorillas
So what do they eat instead of dairy you know everything everything you know a meat-eater a dairy eater
Egg eater eats. I eat as well it just comes in plant form no cruelty involved no hot
You know no cholesterol high in fiber and these are all the processed food. This is the transition food
This is where you go when you go from eating meat. You know and you make you that switch?
instead of poultry
Then it be Garden Burger Veggie burger
right here what you see up here. This is one of the best items on the market again
not like the healthiest food in the world, but certainly better than
Your meat, this is called the riblets now
You know I want you to try it you haven’t tried this go to Publix
Whole Foods you can get all this food at Publishing Whole foods
it’s really amazing if you if you try it out on you know your family, you know tell them. It’s meat
You know I’d love to see the response
They give it really is good stuff and remember all meat dairy and egg products. Go through a process [alright]
It doesn’t just magically form in this case the process involves killing cooking
pasteurization refrigeration
Freezing and we cannot forget the all-important seasoning
I mean, I remember going to McDonald’s as a child and I didn’t just get a slab of meat
you know it slab meat had herbs and spices put into it was put on a grill cooked and then it came to me
with a bun lettuce tomatoes ketchup mustard and onions and a pickle what all those things made out of
Plants we put condiments pies and herbs on the meat to make it taste better in fact
what would meat be without plants, just be a dead animal be a carcass on your plate would be no different from Row 2
So the word of the day is vegan the vegan is somebody who chooses not to eat any meat dairy eggs
Or fish and again, how is this extreme?
How is it extreme not to be drinking the milk of any other species?
How is it extreme not to be eating hen periods how is it extreme?
to not be participating in a system that unnecessarily kills animals a
Lot of kids say man take even after all this there’s still like what do i eat as a vegan now all these products are
Vegan there’s no meat. No dairy no eggs, but this is all crap. This is unhealthy
The junk food Vegan, and you know kids get all excited all right? I’m going vegan. I need just nothing
It’s like God only knows who can tell the parents
you know if your dye consists of nothing but oreos skittles airheads fritos
Sour patch kids and big league chew you’re gonna die this is not healthy
I Don’t know if kids hear that, but you know all right. I’m Gonna live
On a healthier note, you know you have your scrambled eggs. I have my scrambled tofu
Pancakes you’ll have to use cow milk use soy milk oat. Milk rice milk almond milk coconut milk hemp milk fruits and vegetables
spaghetti Pasta
refried beans
even have vegan sour cream guacamole comes from the avocado
Yeah, soy, cheese rice cheese even it now have this magical cheese. I get to in a sec veggie burger
Veggie dog
Cupcake see you they have egg replacers. We gonna have them up here
so you can replace the eggs with bananas applesauce even you can use soy milk oat
Milk more flour water coconut milk ice cream one of the best ice creams in the world again, not healthy
But you know healthier than cow’s milk ice cream
You know I’ve always said to people if you can put a man or a woman on the moon
How hard is it to make a cheese that doesn’t come from a cow or you know a goat like?
How is it hard is it to make a vegan cheese? Well they heard me?
This is called Daiya cheese actually and it’s great thing is no soy no rice. It’s actually made out of
Tapioca and arrowroot flour I know that’s not making your mouth water, but man it is good
Here’s another example of way you get your protein from this is a vegan sausage. It’s about that big it’s the size of this remote and it’s [for] in a package each one of these has 29 grams of protein
Again the healthiest food you can eat is the whole foods. I don’t mean the supermarket
I mean the fruits the vegetables the rice the beans you know stuff. That’s fresh that’s not processed
and the last thing I do want to show you is
Another video there’s a happier video, and this is the whole idea of change in perception
I know I’m keeping you or jesus longer than you probably wanted but um it’s a really beautiful story, and I hope you enjoy it
you
She is beautiful girl
she was tagged for slaughter, and that would have been her face, but
she wanted to live and so she literally ran for her life and
Now she’ll live out her life in sanctuary. It’s interesting how the public responds when one individual animal
You know makes a run for her life. they end up making headlines on National news People’s hearts
Go out to this one individual
And I’m the cruelty that that happens to farm animals is largely hidden
You know behind Factory farm walls and people aren’t aware of it when you look in her eyes
you know everyone wants the best for her once they get to know her and when people are able to identify with an individual and
Look her in the eye and see that. She’s a living healing being
Who has a will to live, then people care? I’ve been working here with animal care and control for almost nine years
This morning was really astonishing to me all of a sudden is dawned on me -sweet innocent cow
running away
From being slaughtered, and I never even thought about it before that something is actually being slaughtered
And it’s my ground beef and it’s my toe I strongy it stuff like that, and we’ve been eating this for years I never pictured that face
On that yeah, and it hurt I can’t do that
So now we won’t work on not eating me me and my entire family
Because I’m realizing that this a life had saved today
And what my family?
We’ll be saving a couple of morning
Thanks
She’ll take she’s about a year old absolutely beautiful hereford and those unfortunately are cows that they used for meat
She’s most likely at a live market and because they have very strong will to live like any living creature
She godless she had a will to live and she did it
And where she’s going now. She’s gonna have like cows of her own greedy. She’s gonna be so happy
It’s the cows in the herd remove yeah, they will move in a big line
everybody Lines up
They will start moving her to comfort her and to tell her that they’re there and she will move out
Any animal any creature has a strong will to live?
She’s an ambassador for all animals who are still suffering in slaughterhouses and on farms
And you don’t don’t have such a such a lucky all people love but happy ending and it’s its happy
I see that like a hundred times. I still get goose bumps
It’s simple you know. It’s unnecessary. It doesn’t have to be this way you change your perception. You change the story
That’s all it is. It’s just the changing of the story and we can’t wait for other people to do it
We have to do it ourselves
every animal wants to live every animal wants to live and no animal wants to experience pain
