Quotation The food industry kills more animals than laboratories, fur farmers, trappers, circuses, and hunters combined.

"It takes 16 pounds of grains tp produce 1 pound of meat. If we just eat the grain and leave the animals alone, we would feed the entire world and stop starvation." --Russell Simmons

I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on factory farming and cruelty to animals, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn't disconnect myself from it any longer. I read books like Diet for a New America and saw documentaries like Earthling...s and Meet Your Meat, and it became an easy choice for me. ~Ellen Degeneres
