  • Why Veg | Loveustoo
    well planned vegetarian diet are significantly less likely to develop cancer compared to meat eaters The human body is not adapted to the consumption of meat and other animal products due to the nature of animal protein high amounts of saturated fat and carcinogenic compounds formed during cooking In contrast a plant based diet greatly increases the body s ability to suppress cancerous cell growth Plant based diets are also extremely effective in countering obesity and diabetes It is common to think that these diseases will not happen to us especially while we are young After all they are the result of many years of poor lifestyle choices Sadly by the time we are able to detect cancer heart disease and other chronic diseases it may already be too late Environment Perhaps the single most effective thing you can do to help the environment is to stop consuming meat and other animal products The United Nations reported that a global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change calling the western diet of meat and dairy highly unsustainable A report from the UN Food and Agriculture Organization found that raising animals for food generates more greenhouse gases than the entire transport system cars trucks trains and planes combined A single person going vegetarian would eliminate 1 5 tonnes of C02 equivalent gases a year Livestock production is also a major source of land and water degradation Irresponsible disposal of manure and animal corpses for instance has led to the pollution of many rivers affecting the lives of many people who depend on them Meat production is also extremely wasteful On average farmed animals must be fed over 6 kilograms of food crops to produce 1 kilogram of meat along with large amounts of water and energy precious resources that we could directly consume Animal agriculture is responsible for 70 of global freshwater consumption 38 of total land use and 85 of soybean production In fact the world s cattle alone consume a quantity of food equal to the caloric needs of 8 7 billion people more than the entire human population Ending world hunger is not an unrealistic goal We just need to be smarter about how we use our resources At the same time we need to think about the kind of world we want to leave our children Earth is the only planet we know that is able to support life and it has done so for billions of years It is terrifying that we have made it so inhospitable to many forms of life in only a few hundred Kindness Perhaps the most compelling reason for giving up meat is to show kindness to our fellow animals We care about animals We know that they are smart playful and loving We know that they are capable of feeling joy and pain That s why in children s books and nursery rhymes we think

    into bags to suffocate within hours of being hatched The natural lifespan of a chicken is 7 years but in factory farm production egg laying hens are killed at just 1½ years of age broiler chickens at 42 days of age or less and male chicks of egg laying hens at 1 day Pigs Pigs are the smartest domestic animal in the world with intelligence beyond that of a 3 year old human child They rank 4 in animal intelligence behind only chimpanzees dolphins and elephants Like dogs pigs love to play and explore their surroundings with their powerful sense of smell They are affectionate animals who form close bonds with each other and other species including humans They can pick up tricks even faster than dogs can Contrary to popular belief pigs are very particular about cleanliness They keep their toilets far from their living and eating areas Although they enjoy lying in the sun they need to cover themselves in mud to protect their sensitive skin In their natural setting mother pigs sing to their piglets while they are nursing Yet pigs the second most consumed farmed animal in Singapore must spend their entire lives in dark warehouses crammed into fetid pens full of their urine and feces Although they are social animals the constant stress prevents them from forming any meaningful relationships To prevent them from biting each other s tails and injuring each other a social disorder brought about by their living conditions piglets have their tails cut off and teeth snipped off with pliers and male piglets are castrated all without anaesthetic Although pigs are supposed to be killed painlessly during slaughter careless stunning practices mean that many pigs are still conscious when they are dumped into boiling water to remove their hair and soften their skin Mother pigs sows spend their lives in metal gestation crates barely bigger than their bodies Unable to move or lie down comfortably this results in crippling leg disorders Like chickens pigs fall sick very often and would die in a matter of months if not for the vaccinations and antibiotics put in their food Unfortunately this allows otherwise harmless viruses to quickly evolve and gain drug resistance leading to outbreaks of deadly swine flu such as that of the H1N1 virus The natural lifespan of a pig is 15 years but in factory farm production pigs are killed after 5 6 months Cows Cows are affectionate sensitive and full of personality Cows like to live in large herds and can recognise more than 100 members of their herd They moo and use different body positions and facial gestures to communicate with each other They are deeply loyal to their families but can hold grudges against other cows that treat them badly for a surprisingly long time They are smart and curious animals who enjoy intellectual challenges and sometimes even jump with excitement upon solving a problem The mother calf bond is very strong A cow mother will frantically
