Becoming vegan or even a vegetarian shouldn’t be a debate for you. Either you want to do it or you don’t. People who ask if it’s worth it are the ones who are skeptical. I think it’s such a big deal for most people because there is so much more to it. I’m talking about reading thoroughly to make sure there are no animal products in them. That is why they tell you don’t immediately transition into a vegan. Start off small like cutting out bacon. I say bacon because people act like they can’t stop eating pork. Pork is the easiest thing to cut out. Then you can slowly start to cut out other meat products. If that doesn’t work for you then I have two other options that will 100% work because it worked for me. On Netflix, there is a show call “what the health“. It explains the bad foods and talk about how they treat the meat you eat and I am not gonna lie, it was extremely disturbing. I thought the show was gonna be about sugar but no, I was appalled by what I watched and I cut out pork immediately. Some of the things they showed were deceased pigs thrown on the ground with flies everywhere, the food they feed them which was some weird stuff (I almost got sick), diseases and more. Immediately after they showed the dead animals, they packaged those dead animals for the meat plants. I couldn’t believe what I watched and after crying, I stopped eating animal meat. That was January this year.
The second thing which I recommend is watching a video on YouTube of the slaughter house. They have hidden cameras and I couldn’t believe my eyes. That place is hell for animals and to think that is the last thing they saw is so heartbreaking. I saw workers spray paint chickens for fun before boiling them and I cried a lot because how are they human beings. I don’t believe in the slaughter house, it is a barbaric place. If you see what has happened to the food that you eat, I honestly believe you wouldn’t want to eat it anymore. It’s getting worse now because a lot of meat industries have workers that had covid and they are sending out the meat you eat. I can say the same for plants but the meat is worse.
If you don’t think you can go vegan then watch those two videos and your life will change. You also might become an animal rights activist after. To think that they murder these animals and then celebrate the holidays is awful. I know they have jobs but if you aren’t affected by you work everyday then you are immune to it and I would watch out for that person. I only say that because I am against it. When I say things like that, there are always people saying “well, you can’t have the animal population too big”. That can also go for the human populations. We are constantly birthing babies and no one is getting rid of us. I just can’t look into the eyes of an animal an kill it. It is inhuman for to me.
After all this, I asked “Is going vegan worth it”. The answer is yes. More people are dropping the chicken leg (literally the leg of a chicken) and picking up some leaves. Less meat also helps your health. It is a fact that meat has health related issues. You also have a lot of fast food places that are unhealthy for you. The McDonald’s salad has more calories than their cheese burger but that place is already unhealthy for you. They also put other things in it. I remember when they advertised their new quarter pounder naming it 100% real beef. What was it before, fake meat. KFC is also known for the bad ways they treat their chickens. The video of the workers spray painting the chickens were from KFC. I am happy that I never ate from this place. Cutting out meat isn’t a bad thing. You can improve so much and there is other great food out there.
