Repost: @activistvegan - Why you should give up SEAFOOD:
📉UNSUSTAINABLE - We extract trillions of fish from the ocean every year and 3/4 of the world's fisheries are already overexploited or have completely collapsed. At current rates of decline, we will see fishless oceans by 2048.
🐬BYKILL - 300,000 marine animals including endangered turtles, porpoises, whales, dolphins, and seals are inadvertently killed in fishing nets every year.
🐟LOSS OF APEX PREDATORS - Apex predators like sharks and tuna play critical roles in maintaining marine ecosystems. We have now lost 90% of sharks and up to 96% of bluefin tuna in the last 50-100 years alone.
🌿LOSS of PHYTOPLANKTON - With fewer predators and more small fish, phytoplankton are also in rapid decline, down 40% in the last 50 years. They provide 50-80% of the oxygen we breathe.
🐚DYING CORAL REEFS - Overfishing is causing devastation to the world's coral reefs. Ocean acidification and climate change are making matters way worse.
👩🏾SLAVE LABOR - The majority of seafood sold in America is imported from developing countries that use human trafficking/slave labor.
♨️DANGERS of AQUACULTURE -Antibiotic resistance, rampant infection, and overcrowding make fish farming the ocean equivalent of factory farming.
☠️CONTAMINANTS - Mercury, PCBs, plastic particles, and nuclear waste concentrate in fish flesh which also contains saturated fat and cholesterol. Seafood is just as unhealthy as meat, eggs, and dairy.
😔SENTIENCE - Fish are highly evolved and intelligent animals that have complex social structures and family units. They suffer immensely when removed by trawler nets and fishing lines where they suffocate slowly and painfully to death.
🌊The oceans belong to the creatures that evolved in them.
🙏Please go vegan and leave seafood off your plate 🌎.

Nature rules with order and justice. Everything has a place, a purpose, a geometry. Every earthling has a role. What is the role of us humans? If we consider ourselves unique in our ability to feel empathy, to imagine and innovate, then we must put it at the service of other beings and of the Earth. Using our heart is pure logic. This is the way we are born: feelingly. #letusbeheroes
imagine how many more people could be fed with all that grain! give vegan a try :) #lahsac
vegan section of our website will be up soon, we promise! so sorry for the delay.
@worldanimalnews reported the horrendous news three days ago that Congress just approved the killing of hibernating bears in the winter, along with their cubs, as well as the killing of wolves and their pups in protected areas in #Alaska . You can help STOP THIS!!! If you live in the U.S. call your Senator and Oppose S.J. Res 18 TODAY! Which will revoke the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rule prohibiting controversial and scientifically unjustified hunting and killing methods on over 76 million acres of federal lands in Alaska. 🚨Please click on the link in their bio to find your state senator!

“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral. If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals.” ~ Leo Tolstoy - Go Vegan💚🐾
I was too excited and I couldn't wait to picked these up to show you guys. These are our English version shirt we will be selling for our non-profit organization @un_mundo_sano
Our goal for our organization is to reach and target people from low income communities and also the Hispanic communities. We want to show and teach people how to shop vegan. We also want to show the reason why millions are going vegan.
Did you know that the effects of consuming one egg is equivalent to smoking a cigarette?🚬 I invite you to open your fridge, find your carton of eggs and look for the words "nutritious" or "healthy." If you're wondering why you can't, that's because it's ILLEGAL for egg companies to advertise them as having high nutritional content because they exceed the threshold for cholesterol, which puts you at the same risk for heart disease as smoking does! ☠️🥚 ANYWAY I decided to make a video showing how I made my po man's tofu "scramble" along with avocado toast, which honestly tastes better than eggs in my opinion!
In a bowl I crumbled up firm tofu and added: the juice of a lemon, soy sauce, chilli garlic Sriracha paste, nutritional yeast (gives it a cheesy flavour and has so much omega 3), turmeric, hoisin sauce, and ground black pepper. I then chopped onion (and garlic for later) and put that on the fry pan with water (you literally don't need oil.) I chopped up a #yves veggie dog and added that to the fry pan once the onions started to brown, along with the tofu mixture and the chopped garlic.
The cool thing about eating vegan is that nothing really needs to be cooked so it's hard to screw it up😂 I normally would add veggies like mushrooms, peppers and spinach but I need to go grocery shopping so I was limited, but this meal is so cheap! You also can skip out on things like the Sriracha paste and nutritional yeast if you don't have any, and play around with whichever spices you do have. A great, easy meal if you're just starting out and don't know wtf you're doing/have limited time😊🤙🏽
📰🌱🎉This video is amazing and is actually being shown on national TV in Sweden 🇸🇪! It should be shown on TV everywhere - so please tag/share and make sure it reaches as many people as possible OUTSIDE Sweden as well!
With the @redingtongear site being launched. I have a new place to share some stories. The first one, from a lifetime of memories with my father, and now kayla, at a really special place. Lees ferry.
Take a look, while you're there, read a few other stories from everyone else! #findyourwater#redingtongear#maketheconnection link in bio
Sustaining the world's ludicrously high demand for cow secretions results in these horrendous conditions being common amongst farms producing high amounts of dairy.
Cows in this state are still milked for human consumption.
this man one of the greatest people of this century
RepostBy @activistvegan: "As vegans, we are often criticized for "pushing our views down people's throats", and we are often labeled "extremists", "terrorists" or "Nazis". The real reason people attack and resent us is because we make them take a close look at their habits and their own morality and they don't want to open that door to their soul. Why? Because deep down they know they are doing something wrong, yet they're not ready to change so this creates an uncomfortable feeling called "cognitive dissonance".
All social justice movements start with this sort of push-back and it's not until after the fact that people recognize that humanity's archaic and barbaric traditions were morally abhorrent. Perhaps not in our lifetime but some day, I believe the human species will evolve beyond animal exploitation. Why? Because no lie can live forever.

Yesssssss. @fieldsbeneath Followed up... remember their AMAZING last weeks post I shared.... ❤️🐄🥛❌
THIS WORLD IS WAKING UP.
VEAL IS BABY COW. The waste product of the Dairy industry!! "21,000,000 #dairy#calves are slaughtered for #veal or cheap beef every year globally.
Whether on #factoryfarms , “family” farms, or small, humane certified farms, male calves & surplus females are sold to be #slaughtered for veal or cheap #beef . The veal industry WOULD NOT exist without the dairy industry!
97% of newborn dairy calves are forcibly removed from their mothers within their first hours of life.
Trapped in a cycle of forced impregnation, perpetual lactation and near constant confinement, dairy cows’ overworked bodies begin producing less milk at 4-5 years of age, at which point they are slaughtered. (A cows natural lifespan is 20-25 years). Of the 9 million dairy cows in the U.S., 3 million are slaughtered each year at only a fraction of their natural lifespan. Their worn out bodies become #groundbeef and restaurant #hamburgers ."
Dairy consumers have higher blood levels of #estrogen , a risk factor for hormone-sensitive cancers such as breast #cancer & ovarian cancer.
Dairy/#cheese is closely tied to prostate cancer in many studies. In 20,000 men in the Physicians #Health Study, those consuming 2.5 servings of dairy/day had a 34% higher risk of #prostatecancer , even with adjustments for other risk factors.
Still not tired of eating tofu.. especially not when it's as crispy as this one.😏 (@christina_slifestyle 😁😁) Went for a run after work even though the sun didn't show up as promised..😞 Now I'm gonna enjoy my usual Friday chillnight with watching Germany's Next Topmodel..🙈 What are you up to?😙 #vegan#tofu#buddhabowls
Don't let this stormy Friday keep you from touring your new home! Contact the office at 785-842-3336 to schedule a tour or walk right in and let us show you why we are the best student apartments in Lawrence! #ConnectionAtLawrence#MakeTheConnection
And so fast everything changed. Here I am still standing, still fighting, still knowing that all my effort towards my dreams, one day Will pay off.
I don't have to find myself, I already know who I am. Really proud of myself making the decision 3 years jumping of the train of judging and looking down on others.💫🌿Be proud of yourself and act in the same direction. #maketheconnection
Who wants to go surfing? It's only 48° no problemo. Happy Friday! Came down to La Jolla Shores to help spread awareness about the importance of talking about mental illness and helping to remove the stigma. Not only is it a beautiful day but I met some very kind beautiful people in the process. The Graduate School that I attend for counseling psychology for co-occurring disorders focuses on social interest as a fundamental to Mental Health and today is just another example of how when we look out for one another everyone thrives. You can have your own #flurofriday everyday by checking in with those around you and genuinely listening. Thank you @onewaveisallittakes for keeping the conversation going. 💓💙💚💛💜
