Vegetarians Make This World a Better Place

In the United States, over 23 million chickens are killed every day. 4,000 cows are slaughtered every hour. 112 million pigs are turned to bacon annually. “… we process more than 9 billion animals each year — hundreds per second,” noted New York Times writer, Mark Bittman in his article, “The Human Cost of Animal Suffering.”

Workers commonly stuff ten chickens or more into a small barb wired cage, leaving them to starve and rot. Workers would go down the long aisle of lined up pigs, ruthlessly slitting their throats. The head of baby calves would be stepped, stomped and balanced on by the hard shoes of workers, just because they felt like it. The dead bodies of beaten, weak and sick cows are thrown into a pile, some still conscious, waiting to be processed and later grilled into a juicy piece of steak slid right onto your dinner plate. .https://www.newuniversity.org/2012/04/18/vegetarians-make-this-world-a-better-place/
