VEGUCATED. an emotional and not-so-shocking movie about Veganism

I got to tell you, I watch VEGUCATED and I really really enjoyed it.
Of course some tears fall from my eyes but it’s ok, it’s an emotional issue for me…seeing ppl getting to know what Veganism is about, going through the “eyes opening” process and so on, it’s a good thing for me. I always get touched.

the movie is directed by Marisa Miller Wolfson and won the Best Documentary at Toronto Independent Film Festival in 2011.

Really, I recommend everyone to see the movie, especially kids in school.

It’s not just terrifying images of slaughterhouses movie (yes, something you’ll see but…) and the story is real: three different persons get initiated to the vegan diet, through medical visits, lectures, documentaries and trips to farms. everything falls into its right place: once you open your eyes and see what actually means eating meat you cannot go back anymore.

once again: be fair, be rebel, be vegan!

MEAT THE TRUTH, you deserve to be shocked!

This is another great doc about food, global warming, sustainability and the influence of the meat industry on our climate (and the climate change) and on the devastation of our environment, water and air.

if you take some time to watch the movie you’ll discover the relation intercurring between the huge release of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere and the consumption of meat in your diet. Yes it’s all related, like Marianne Thieme explains in the doc, eighteen percent (18) of global greenhouse gas emission are caused by livestock farming. Farmed animals.

mmmm…so..wait…are we talking about cows farting and burping? yes you got it. it’s called METHANE.

Now see this: all the transportation in the world (cars, trains, ships, airplanes etc etc) sends out in the air 13% of total global emission, so less than industrial farming, are you shocked already?

Now, do you still think it’s ok to please your tongue with that bloody and full of antibiotic steak? are you still living the lie of telling yourself that your meat and dairy comes from happy and free to move around animals?…cmooooon… you better act somehow and get your responsabilities!

more on this: about 40/50% of all the cereals and 75% of soy farmed in the world are not eaten by human but by livestock to get fat so humans can eat them (and soy is farmed mostly in Brazil which keeps cutting down Amazonian rainforest to make place for more soya field).

A recent FAO study points out that human population has raised from 2.6 billions in 1950 to 6 billions in 2000 and the production of industrial edible meat increased from 45 billions of kilos  in 1950 to 233 billions in 2000, so they predict that in 2050 the human population will touch 9 billions of units and the production of meat will hit 450 billions of kilos doubling the emission of greenhouse gasses…

I suggest to watch this doc before dinner so to get motivated on changing your diet and make the world a more sustainable place to live in, for us and the future humans.

How can be a raw carrot more expensive then some fatty and processed french fries?
