The consumption of animal fats and proteins has been linked to heart
disease, colon and lung cancer, osteoporosis, diabetes, kidney disease,
hypertension, obesity, and a number of other debilitating conditions.
Cows' milk contains ideal amounts of fat and protein for young calves,
but far too much for humans.
Despite the common belief that drinking milk or eating eggs does
not kill animals, commercialization of meat, egg and milk production
has made every moment of the lives of animals miserable. Animals
raised or captured for human use are tortured to make them 'use-worthy'.
FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
Animal agriculture takes a devastating toll on the earth. It is
an inefficient way of producing food, since feed for farm animals
requires land, water, fertilizer and other resources that could
otherwise have been used directly for producing human food.
