Over the past couple months, I’ve read some really great blogs about animal rights, factory farming, and veganism. I thought I’d share with you a few posts that I thought are especially insightful and/or interesting:
Vegan in the Country writes about her experience caring for “broiler” chickens in her post “Foster Farms SUCKS!” This post will give you an idea of how terribly these genetically modified birds suffer from growing so quickly.
Vegan Soapbox‘s Alex Melonas writes about how it’s an oxymoron to say you’re an environmentalist if you’re still eating meat, in the post titled “An Environmentalist Who Eats Meat?”
Vegan Liz talks about why she doesn’t drink milk in her post “Why I Don’t Swallow the White Stuff: Milk”. She basically covers all my reasons too!
Vegan Soapbox also writes “On the issue of Unnecessary Suffering”, which is an excellent post.
Factory Farming’s real costs are discussed in “The Real Cost of Doing Business” by Christine Harkin.
A post over on The Joyful Vegan, “Why Go Vegan?…For Your Mind!” really resonated with me. Rachel from NY discusses how she had been desensitized to animal suffering as a child (weren’t we all!), but has found inner peace now as a vegan. She can interact with animals and feel comforted by knowing that she doesn’t eat them. It’s exactly how I feel too.
Anyway, those are just a few of the posts that have influenced me these past few months. I hope you enjoy them too!
