Have you ever seen the movie food inc? It is a documentary that shows you a different side of the food industry. It gives a back story to the things we see everyday in our homes and at the stores. It is an incredible documentary that I highly recommend. You can check out a trailer as well as see some of the other things supporters are doing to improve food quality here at the food inc home page.
I have seen this documentary a time or two as well as clips from it and it touches a part of my soul. I have often made the vow to eat less processed foods and go vegetarian. But as life is, sometimes I get busy and lazy and have not always fulfilled my vows. I want to renew my vow to become a vegetarian, and one day a vegan. I have been a vegetarian before so I do not think it will be that hard to revert back, but anyways I want to tell you about a new video I saw that has sparked such a drastic change in me.
On my facebook I am a fan of FOOD, inc. and so there is this pop-up on the side screen that is advertized every time I get on the internet. Tonight I decide to watch it because I had no other noise around me. It is simply called meat video. You can find it at http://www.meatvideo.com/
Let me tell you it is horrific!!!! I started watching, innocently enough, and I kid you not, I was crying with 45 second of it starting. It is awful what people do to animals. The beginning shows how pigs are treated, and I am a pig lover. Not their meat, but of the actual pig. I have been obsessed since high school and really want a baby pig as a pet. Anyway seeing less than a minute of it made me cry and feel horrible. I had to turn it off immediately. I cannot imagine what happens to other animals and I do not want to know, but I know I will never be eating animal meat again. I am not a big meat eater anyway, bit now it will not happen ever again, I do not want to be a part people being cruel to animals.
