Skinny Bitch...

...In the Kitch quote (just another example of why I'm vegan):

Hmm...dead, rotting, decomposing flesh of carcasses. Doesn't sound like something you'd want to eat, huh? Not to mention the pesticides, hormones, steroids, and antibiotics. Oops! We forgot mad cow disease, bird flu, salmonella, E. coli, trichinosis, and mercury. Well, no wonder American's are suffering from obesity; cancer, liver, kidney, lung, and reproductive disorders; birth defects; miscarriages, and nervous system disorders.

You can call it steak, tuna, bacon, or chicken. No matter how you slice it, it's a piece of decaying, decomposing carcass. We know you like the taste, but there are other foods that mimic the flavor and texture of meat but don't come with the same side effects. Smarten, up, bitches."

That's all I'm sayin'. Especially in light of the media coverage of the abuse in factory farms, it amazes me that people can turn a blind eye just because their food is packaged without its face. Get with the program. Did you know living a vegan lifestyle is better for the environment than buying and driving one of those awesome, yet really expensive hybrid cars? Factory farming depletes more of the earth's resources than anything else in the world. More that 1/3 of all fossil fuels produced in the United States go towards animal agriculture. Factory farming uses a lot of water (one pound of beef requires 2500 gallons of the stuff), and it pollutes it (2 billion tons of manure, gross)! And all those 200 million pounds of imported beef have to be raised somewhere (South America often times), which means deforestation of our rainforests. GOT GLOBAL WARMING?

Hey, you don't have to listen to me- you do the research. I'm sure what you find will shock you.
