Mark Zuckerberg eating only animals he kills himself
He recently announced that this year the challenge has been to eat only meat he kills himself. Fortune Mag reports: "This year, my personal challenge is around being thankful for the food I have to eat. I think many people forget that a living being has to die for you to eat meat, so my goal revolves around not letting myself forget that and being thankful for what I have. This year I've basically become a vegetarian since the only meat I'm eating is from animals I've killed myself. So far, this has been a good experience. I'm eating a lot healthier foods and I've learned a lot about sustainable farming and raising of animals."
The decision to consume less or no animal products has become a worldwide movement. As we do here, every Monday, choosing to eat less meat is having a significant impact on our bodies and our Earth.
Alicia Graef writes: Each year, billions of cows, pigs, chickens, sheep and other innocent, sentient animals are caged, crowded, deprived, drugged, mutilated and manhandled in U.S. factory farms. They are then hauled to the slaughterhouse and killed under atrocious conditions. Millions never even make it to the slaughterhouse, dying from stress-induced diseases or injuries.
It's becoming more difficult to ignore the level of violence, environmental degradation, loss of biodiversity, pollution, misuse of antibiotics that are affecting human health, workers rights violations and animal abuse, among other problems the meat industry causes, yet somehow, there is a disconnect between packages that get neatly wrapped in cellophane and placed on store shelves and their origins.
Some very good and valid food for thought.
