The vegetarian and vegan thread #2

My reasons for becoming vegetarian were:
: I don't want to eat something that has been tortured, electrocuted or punished during its whole life to life in a severely overcrowded shelter just for me to eat it. It's all about karma. And quality: we are what we eat.
Today's farming methods
: I don't think it's healthy to eat chicken that due to the lack of space grows deformed and is forced to grow quickly by hormones. When I learnt about this, I took the decision to only eat free range, organic chicken - after some time, I started not liking the taste of chicken and decided to completely rule it out of my diet.
: I feel so much better when I don't eat meat.
Poverty, climate change and sustainable development
: if humans ate all the food that is given to animals and drunk all the water they consume we could erradicate hunger and children death because of no resources, for example in Africa. Moreover, producing meat creates a huge quantity of CO2 - contributing to climate change.

I was very proud of Stella and her brand. She really is one step ahead and I'm glad she has such an influence in fashion.
