KFC’s breeding birds have their sensitive beaks seared off with hot blades soon after they are born. "Broilers," or chickens raised for their flesh, are bred and drugged in order to make them gain weight quickly, which often causes their hearts and lungs to fail and their legs to become crippled under their own heavy bodies. Archaic slaughter methods and faulty machinery, combined with an absence of laws to protect chickens, cause millions of them to be scalded alive in feather-removal tanks or have their throats slit while they are still conscious.

At one KFC “Supplier of the Year” slaughterhouse in West Virginia, workers were caught tearing birds’ heads off, ripping them apart, spitting tobacco into their eyes, spray painting their faces, and throwing them against walls—all while the birds were completely conscious and able to feel pain. This is in stark contrast to KFC’s claim that it “only deal[s] with suppliers who promise to maintain our high standards and commitment to animal welfare.”

Go Veg! When it comes to vegetarianism, the number one question on most meat-eaters' minds is, "What do you eat?" The answer: Anything we want! There are vegetarian alternatives to almost any animal food, from soy sausages and "Fib Ribs" to Tofurky jerky and mock lobster. Vegetarian-friendly menus are sprouting up everywhere—even Burger King offers veggie burgers—and more and more eateries are focusing exclusively on vegetarian and vegan foods. There are fantastic alternatives to every dairy product you can imagine, including Soy Delicious ice cream, Silk chocolate soy milk, Tofutti cream cheese, and more.

Think eating vegan is difficult? We've got news for you—excluding animal flesh and animal byproducts from your diet is no more difficult than continuing to eat animals—only now, you won't feel the guilt! Eating vegan is not only a simple move on your part, it's also exciting. When you eat vegan, you're forcing yourself to move beyond standard American fare and into the realm of international foods. For instance, Asian restaurant menus always have several tofu options available. Grocery shopping also becomes an exploration, especially when you move beyond your friendly health-food store. When you shop in standard grocery stores, you quickly realize how many awesome foods are out there that happen to be naturally vegan. So, lose the lame excuse and go for it!
