@Regranned from @wthfilm - Chickens are now 4 times bigger than they used to be! (And this image is dated by 13 years!!) While growth hormones and steroids are illegal in the U.S. poultry industry (unlike other meat industries), farmers often use antibiotics as growth agents, along with breed selectivity.
Rapid growth in chickens can result in leg disorders, including bone deformities, lameness and ruptured tendons, as well as metabolic diseases. It’s been noted that many factory-farmed chickens are unable to hold up their own weight, and are even missing feathers on their chests because they spend an unusual amount of time sitting.
One study found that when given the choice, broiler chickens will even choose to self-medicate with feed that contains painkillers, even if that feed tastes worse than their regular feed. In her book "Wild Health," biologist Cindy Engels pointed to this as evidence that the animals were in pain or suffering. 😢

Even though it’s cheaper to eat at home, I always find myself at a vegan restaurant trying new food. It gives me new ideas and recipes to make at home, and who can resist a delicious meal from a good vegan chef
Look at all the goodies at @thefeelgoodcafe today! Great coconut stew, lentil stew, Buddha bowls with quinoa and falafels, vegan cakes, sausage rolls! vegan burgers, pancakes, smoothies, coffees etc etc!
I'm in utter shock watching this. We live in such a corrupt and fucked up society! ANYONE interested in the health of themselves and Thier families needs to watch this! I don't want to sound preachy but this is a very important and vital documentary which will change the way you live your life. #whatthehealth#whatthefuck
S h o r t b r e a d 🍪 is one of my fave biscuits but I haven't yet come across a vegan one 😔it's my birthday tomorrow and my lovely non-vegan friend made me some vegan ones 😁😍and they are perfect 👌🏼
Anyone knows if she's ok !!!
A rarity for me. Most of my activism is/has been mostly online or protesting or inside a cube which requires no talking at all. I can write my ass off and be eloquent as fuck. (We all have different beautiful strengths, none better none worse.) But when I talk, like a typical introverted awkward #infj , it comes out something like this lmao! For an EXTREMELY quiet person who actually DOESN'T like to talk/doesn't talk much.... who has seriously struggled with social anxiety/#highlysensitiveperson for a long time, I don't hide that..... so I have to keep practicing if I'm going to speak for the animals #practicemakesperfect#ihaveavoice#beavoice#animalliberation#speakforthosewhocannotspeakforthemselves#courage
Me and this Irishman had a pretty long conversation at that. Caught some on my live feed after about 10 minutes into it. He grew up on a farm in Ireland and raised cattle. He said he's been thinking about going back, leaving NYC for that simple life again, and after our talk he said he's going to consider farming something other than animals 🙌🌱💃 After this I got another chance to speak at length with a couple who I was able to suggest watching #WhatTheHealth which they had never heard of and they were super open, thankful, and receptive.
This is it. I'm doing it. I will not waste my life not standing up for what I believe in and love with my FULL ASS. I will not remain quiet. Not when thousands of sweet helpless innocent animals are suffering and being slaughtered every moment, of every day, all year long. I will not. I cannot.
If there is anything worth it in life, it's this right here. My heart feels this. It knows.
This post is for me. I am so proud of you for facing your biggest fears and for following your beautiful heart. You're the fucking shit 🤘💚🙌💃👊✨
