    FAQ – Isn’t it okay to eat eggs from free ranged hens?

    First of all, let’s talk about eggs in general. There are eggs that come from hens that spend all their lives caged up in tiny tiny boxes with way to many other hens. They are unable to spread their wings or do anything else they would like to do. Often times they get aggressive and start picking each other, which is why they have to undergo the torture of beak trimming. Due to intensive farming and high livestock density diseases would spread rapidly, so they instead all ingest hormones, medications and antibiotics with their food. During their whole lives they won’t see any sun light but rather are captured in…

    FAQ – What’s wrong with consuming dairy and eggs?

    When I was a vegetarian I thought I was doing everything I could to prevent any animals from being hurt or killed. I didn’t even think about how consuming eggs, milk or any other dairy product could harm them, or even cause their deaths. When I finally educated myself I couldn’t believe what really was going on; and how little most of civilization really knows.   Dairy Just like human women, female cows only give milk when they are pregnant. But for the dairy industry there is no time to lose, so every cow gets an artificial insemination, which if we think about it fits the definition of rape. Once…

    The health issue is a huge reason for people to ditch all animal products. Our whole lives we get told that animal products are necessary and healthy for our body.

    Why vegan – for the animals

      According to an APPA survey the estimated number of pet dogs and cats living in US households is 163.6 million, which means a lot of people actually do like animals. However, more than 56 billion animals are killed every year for flesh, dairy and eggs. The animals used for food are just as intelligent and able to suffer as those who share our homes. Dogs, cats, cows – what is the difference? Why do we love one and kill the other one? With one we share our home, sometimes even the bed and cry over their deaths; yet we stick forks and knives into the bodies of other animals…

    Why vegan

    Veganism is becoming bigger and bigger. Vegan restaurants seem to sprout up everywhere, vegan labelled products can be found in every supermarket and even on social media it is widely spread. Some people say it is just a trend and eventually fade away – I however don’t think so.   When I became vegan some of my friends told me I now officially turned into a weirdo, but the only thing I actually turned into was a more aware person. I have been vegetarian for over 6 years before I started to really dig into the reasons of adapting to a vegan lifestyle. For some reason I always liked the…
