Coke is making milk? It seemed pretty strange. And not even because of their controversial pin-up advertisements. According to this article from Business Week, Unlike soda, the U.
How dare they push their beliefs on to me. I don't push mine on to them! Do meat eaters really hold the belief that the cruelty, suffering and pain inflicted upon animals by the factory farming industry is justified by a desire to eat meat? I'm not sure they do.
I think the majority of people just avoid facing and admitting the truth. There's a reason slaughter houses don't have windows. There is a reason that for so many years, until the power of social media began to remove the veil, that the abuse, which is perpetrated daily on a massive scale, was largely hidden from the public.
I used to be a meat-eater. I have experience of living on both sides of the fence. And it is amazing just how different things look when you are able to lift the veil and stare the truth in the face.
The thing is this: So why do people get so angry and hateful towards vegans? Why is it that people are so anti those trying to reduce suffering, pain and destruction in the world?
I look back on 35 years of eating meat. I recall the times that I met vegans and vegetarians. My great uncle was a vegan. Over the years, I worked with two vegans and a number of vegetarians. I always respected their opinions and was interested in the decision they had made.
However, it was completely contrary to what I was being taught, especially being heavily involved in sport. I certainly never accused them of preaching; perhaps because I didn't see them in a religious capacity. In fact, the way they were living their lives was simply an extension of my own compassion for animals, yet I still ate animals because I thought that I needed to.
I was taught that those people had their hearts in the right place but that they were naive and would succumb to some kind of illness or disease through poor nutrition.
I recall a time when my uncle was handing out leaflets outside of McDonald's to educate people on why they shouldn't be eating the food. Some of my family members mocked his participation.
I thought that was unkind. I didn't see anything wrong with what he was doing, and at the back of my mind I knew that beyond the golden arches were something very cruel. I was always an inquisitive person who asked a lot of questions, but not educated enough to go out there and connect the dots, at least not at that age.
In my early teens I began to refuse red meat. I look back on this as a turning point for me, but it would still be many years and take many other junctions in the road to lead me to a plant-based lifestyle.
We Used to Have an Excuse, Not Anymore As the years went by and I met more vegans and vegetarians through different social channels, my general defence in debate was to use what I now understand to be pseudo-nutrition.Datis Kharrazian, PhD, DHSc, DC, MS, MMSc, FACN, is a clinical research scientist, academic professor, and a functional medicine health care provider.
1 Clark, Gregory, “ Why Isn't the Whole World Developed? Lessons from the Cotton Mills,” this Journal, 47 (03 ), pp. – The lim- ited spread of modem economic growth before World War II has thus been due, at bottom, to important political and ideological differences throughout the world that affected the timing of the establishment and expansion of mass schooling.
