I decided to write a quick blog about the fast food industry. It’s all in the video, so please watch it. It’s only 3-4 minutes long so it won’t take too much time. I have included the transcript below.
Hi this is Jenny from My Energy Shift.com Today I want to shed some light on the fast food industry. I know fast food is everywhere these days and its so easy to just stop by to pick something up for dinner on a busy night. However, I want to wake people up because I think its important that people know what they are really supporting with their money when they stop by a fast food joint to grab a bite to eat.
The truth is that the fast food industry in one of the driving forces behind factory farming. People want cheap food and raising animals on a factory farm is a great way to get cheap food to the consumer. However, its time to stop and think – to really stop and think about what you are eating when you eat fast food and what your hard earned money is supporting when you purchase fast food.
Here are some pictures of factory farms. There really aren’t many pictures available online because the corporations operating them don’t allow cameras. They don’t allow people to take pictures of the facility. Does that tell you something right there? Luckily some brave individuals have snuck cameras in so that you can really see the conditions these animals have to live in. It is horrendous. These animals are living in squalor – in filthy, crowded, diseased conditions. When it’s time to slaughter the animals, what they go through is horrible. While it would be nice if it was always quick and painless, that is not always the case. As a result, these animals are stressed out and full of anxiety and fear at the end of their lives. I believe this stays in the flesh so when you eat a Big Mac you are filling yourself with stress, anxiety and fear. Our world has enough of that already just from living our daily lives, sodo you really want to put additional stress, anxiety and fear into your body through your food ?
Let’s talk about protein. I am so tired of hearing – where do you get your protein – from people who don’t understand plant based eating. Look at it this way – here is a very large animal – the beautiful elephant – that is an herbivore, a plant based eater in other words. Where does it get its protein. Here is a Rhino – again, a rather large animal that is a plant based eater. How does something this large survive without eating meat? Here’s another plant based large animal – a horse. Again, it doesn’t eat meat so where does it get its protein. It can’t be too hard to figure out that it gets it from plants. Plants have protein. The protein people get from meat actually comes from the plants the animal has eaten. So, yes, a cow is a plant based eater and when you eat beef you are getting protein because of the plants it ate. My proposal to you is that we skip the middle man to get our protein – skip the cow, the chicken and the pig and go straight to the source – plants – to get your protein. And I won’t even get into the bad stuff (fat and cholesterol) that is in meat, which makes it a less healthy choice. Truth is Its impossible to be protein deficient if you eat enough calories. Ever heard of anyone being diagnosed with a protein deficiency? Most likely not.
I hope that this has at least caused you to think. I sincerely hope that you will think twice about promoting the fast food industry and animal suffrage which is what happens when you purchase fast food because you are promoting factory farming. When I stopped eating meat for ethical reasons, I vowed never to buy fast food again – not even a French fry or coffee. I will not support them in any way. I hope you will consider doing the same. Feed your bodyhealthy plant food, not a stressed out, fearful animal that led a horrible life in the worst conditions that you an imagine.
Again, this is Jenny from myenergyshift.com. I would love to hear your thoughts about fast food and factory farming.
