Why do people spend so much time obsessing over what other people put into their bodies?
Just mind ya bizness.
I've recently stepped into activism after working in the restaurant industry for 21 years. I participate in Anonymous Voice For The Voiceless Cubes Of
Truth and a few other things, but what I've learned in my time with the general public is that the majority of the general public has ZERO clue where
their food comes from or what exactly they're putting in their bodies.
In the U.S., we've got a pretty serious healthcare issue, it directly affects my pocket when people don't pay attention to what they consume.
I went vegan for ethical reasons and then had to figure out how to make a diet work for me. One of the biggest questions my meat-eating friends ask me
is "Where are you getting your protein from?" in which I'll turn the question back on them and they'll tell me about the burgers, steaks or chicken
they've been consuming, pumped full of GMO's, anti-biotics, growth hormones, sodium and dye while I'm eating a taco bowl full of veggies bought from a
local farmer's market.
As someone who cares about all life, I think it's important that we care about what we're eating as a society. Factory farming/industrial fishing is
doing an amazing job at destroying the land we live on, our oceans are looking to be dead by 2048. These are highly important things that will effect
human life for years to come.
From an ethical standpoint, the 56 billion land animals and 2.7 trillion sea creatures who are served on plates every year is a pretty intense hit to
the gut. We no longer need animals to survive, yet we continue to abuse/rape/murder them for our taste pleasure. That may not have any effect on you
because you see yourself superior to other life forms, but it's exactly what's happening.
