Why should you be pissed about factory farming? Keep reading.

1. Factory farming is destroying our planet.
Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change and deforestation. In fact, according to the World Bank, animal agriculture is culpable for nearly 91 percent of Amazon destruction. In addition, the meat industry emits more greenhouse gases than all the transportation in the world combined. As famed movie director James Cameron said, “You are not an environmentalist if you eat meat.

2. Factory farming is dangerous for our health.
Study after study has shown that a plant-based diet is beneficial for your health. Meat is linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and even cancer. In fact, the World Health Organization reported that processed meats are just as hazardous to your health as cigarettes. Additionally, the world-renowned Mayo Clinic found that long-term vegetarians live on average 3.6 years longer than their meat-eating counterparts. Let that sink in for a minute.

3. Factory farming is cruel.
From throwing baby chicks into macerators to tearing baby cows away from their mothers, factory farming puts profits ahead of animals. The saddest part is, so much of the abuse on these cruel farms is legal.
