It was 2 years ago now that I began my vegetarian diet, which also lead me to giving up on animals’ products as well [EGGcept for eggs that are produced by the chickens on my farm, ethical I know!]. Since then I have convinced by sister to be vegetarian, while the rest of my family are finding the transition difficult. Imagine the world without the slaughter of animals for the sole purpose of your taste buds. Impossible. But imagine producing and growing real meat without killing innocent animals.
“Raising animals for food uses 45% of Earth’s total land” (Angle-Traegner). With the prevention of the destruction comes the deterrence of habitat loss and species extermination. Wildlife Services has killed “more than 30 million free-living-animals” because they posed a threat to animal agriculture (Angle-Traegner). Veganism could also help reduce global hunger. “82% of starving children live in countries where food is fed to animals, and the animals are eaten by western countries” (Angle-Traegner).
A few individuals get so used to notices that they no more notice them; others never get used to a scent, and it pesters them ceaselessly. The individuals in Greeley, Colorado are of both gatherings. The scent originates from the slaughterhouses that murder cows, bundle the meat, and cook the remaining parts into canine sustenance. Industrialization has now hit the creation and bundling of meat, so no expertise is needed. Therefore, low wage employments for outsiders furthermore, secondary school dropouts have been made, occupations which bring high rates of damage, make ghettos, and by and large wreck towns in the West.
They see their own family killed and are almost always diseased stricken. Animals are being exploited by people and need to be given proper rights. Animals should be free! Small family farms that have free range chicken, cows, and other farm animals have decreased to one perecent, being replaced by even more factory farms. “Factory farming accounts for 99
Over half of the worlds wildlife population has vanished in the last 40 years, and every indication points to humans as the main thing to blame for this loss of wildlife biodiversity. While our contribution to habitat loss and climate change plays a huge part in the loss of these species, poaching is also to blame. There are many different ways people poach in the United States. In the United States Black Bear, Bighorn Sheep, Deer, and, shark finning in California are the popular animals to poach. Poaching can also take place online.
According to statistics, food animals kill 56 billion animals in the USA which largely differed from the 25 million of animal experimentation (Laws and Regulations). When living in a planet where animals loose lives mostly by being eaten than using them for welfare, how can animal experimentation be a cruel
Tons of animals die every year in our country and even across the globe because of animal testing. Animal testing should be stopped because testing is considered cruel, unreliable, and animals can suffer just like humans. To begin, animal death occurs every year in the U.S. According to PETA’s article “Animal Testing 101”, Approximately 100 million animals or more suffer and die throughout the U.S. every year in harsh chemical, drug, food, and cosmetics test (PETA.org). The process of animal testing
Therefore, without animal testing, many of these would never reach the market (PETA, 2012). There is also the argument that we need to observe how products work in the complex interactions of cells, tissues and organs in living animals (PETA, 2012). It can also be argued that many medical students use animals in their own research to learn about the human body before they can become qualified. In this case, animals are already being used to save lives (Orlans, 1993). A final argument is that we already eat meat, which causes animals to suffer and lives to be lost.
Billions of animals are killed every year for their flesh, our amusement, and medical testing so that humans can live a better life. (DOL 7) Not only are animals killed, but the life animals live is one we wouldn’t wish on our worst enemy. Is the way that we treat animals on the hands of each individual or on the hands of the church? Two books Dominion of Love and Animal Gospel give their insight on who is to be blamed for the way animals are treated. I would like to reflect on the two readings and give my personal insight to the books, however I will begin by summarizing both of the titles beginning with Dominion of Love.
They are silent killers, living in backyards, parks and neighborhoods all across the world. They specialize in crowding out, choking, and killing native residents to the point where they rule over the land. The prevention and elimination of these species cost billions of dollars to the United States each year. Our commercial, agricultural, and recreational activities depend on the execution of these visitors. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, these killers go by a less potent name: invasive species.
The meat industry is one of the largest industries in the world, however, it is one of the leading cause of millions of illnesses and deaths every year. Because inspecting meat for foodborne pathogens is a costly, timely and difficult task, meat companies are willing to barely meet the government 's standards in order to save money. This behavior is unacceptable because millions of people are getting sick every year from tainted meats. The longer the country continues its ignorance about the meat industry, the worse the conditions are going to become. The only way to improve conditions is to have transparency within the industries.
“For many, animal testing invokes an image of some large cosmetic company applying undeveloped products to unsuspecting creatures, regardless of the consequences” (Sun 83). This accusation is a misconception for animal testing in present day. In fact, new cosmetic products remain prohibited from being tested on animals; animals today continue to be tested on to find cures and vaccines to life 's diseases. Therefore, animal drug testing is a tragic necessity to assess theories, to accomplish scientific research for the health of humans and animals alike. Increasingly, studies show that: Adverse drug reactions kill more than 10,000 people a year in the U.K. (and more than 100,000 in the U.S.) These outrageous numbers fail reassure us that all drugs undergo testing on animals to ensure human safety.
USDA has repeatedly purchased meat from companies that have been involved in major bacterial outbreaks. A handful of children have been sickened because of this. To make matters even worse, the USDA buys the cheapest meat it can get, leaving the meat highly susceptible to having harmful diseases and pieces of bones. Even fast-food restaurants have higher meat standards than the National School Lunch Program ((NSLP)USDA provides the meat for the NSLP). Lastly, chapter nine notifies people that kitchen sinks aren’t as clean as they may think.
England has banned this practice completely following the discovery that it is the cause of mad cow disease, however the United States and Canada only have restrictions on the practice. Instead of beef industries feeding their herbivore cows crops and grass they put human lives in danger to save a buck on the cheaper inhumane feed. The human form of this disease causes holes in the brain and typically leads to death, and these cows are being forced to be cannibalistic, which is a huge health problems a truly an inhumane ways to treat
Animal Testing is Inhumane. Multiple species are dying by normal nature happenings, such as being eaten or something like that. However, that 's just the life cycle. But even with this ongoing cycle, the deaths that happen in it don 't get anywhere close to the amount of animals killed by us humans. Each year, 100 million animals, including mice, rats, dogs, frogs, cats, and more, are all killed for scientific usage.
