WHY VEGAN?

Animal agriculture kills around 78.000.000.000 land animals and 2.700.000.000.000 aquatic animals every single year.
Farm animals live in the worst imaginable conditions possible: secluded in reduced spaces, crammed with thousands of others in farms, mutilated to prevent them from hurting eachother in those unnatural places and we stuff them ith antibiotics to prevent horrible diseases that we cause ourselves by forcing them in these situations.
Finally, even the ones in the best conditions get killed at a fraction of their natural lifespan in slaughterhouses most people wouldn’t even dare to look at.

SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES

Disclaimer: there is little scientific debate on the fact that animals have a central nervous system that makes them capable of experiencing emotions and pain. Even so, I’ll leave some scientific articles analyzing the morality of treating animals as objects (and ignoring their capacity to suffer) for various purposes.
