This is 45 days in the life of a broiler chicken. One that you might have eaten yourself without knowledge.
If anytone thinks this is alright, then I pity them for not having a heart.
When you see the final product on the table you often don’t even know which part of the animal you’re eating nor how it came to be that way.
Well, this is where bacon comes from and how it’s made.
As you watch it, please have a think that each one of those bellies belong to 1 pig, 1 life – who had its throat cut and was bled to death in pain.
As a vegetarian it is hard for me to understand why people eat meat.
Through asking a few, I have come across different types of answers. Some which leave no hope for change, others that would consider it.
I am interested to know truly why people do it, so below are a few answers. Please choose the one that most closely matches your views.
- I ask you questions that you might not have asked yourself before.
- I tell you about my own experience being a vegetarian.
- I lay out all the good AND all the bad things about it.
- I present you with a challenge.
I genuinely hope to see you on the green side! ;-) Continue reading
For many years now I have been constantly trying to improve myself as a person. To take people’s criticisms, suggestions, and try and work on it. If someone says “you talk too much” I’ll question myself and if I agree with it I will then try to talk a little less – at least to that person anyway.
But in this constant chase for perfection I have achieved things that others can’t quite even comprehend. It’s like trying to explain to a 1 month old baby what “inconspicuous” means, when it doesn’t even know what “apple” means.

I am an atheist and am completely against religion. But I have found in Buddhism 5 moral precepts that before even finding them I already lived by.
- To refrain from taking life (non-violence towards sentient life forms)
- To refrain from taking that which is not given (not committing theft)
- To refrain from sensual (sexual) misconduct (not committing rape, etc)
- To refrain from lying (speaking truth always)
- To refrain from intoxicants which lead to loss of mindfulness (specifically, drugs and alcohol)
Number 1 on that list is the one thing that over 95% of the world don’t do. Their morals stop with no hurting humans as if they were somehow more capable of feeling pain and more deserving of being respected.
