Veganism in a Nutshell


Published:

Dear Carol,

I think the next step in co-creating the Golden Era on Earth is veganism. Thomas Edison (vegan) stated, “Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”

“Animals Should Be Off the Menu” is the name of a speech recently given by Australian philanthropist and former VP of Citibank, Philip Wollen, in which he said, “Meat is the new asbestos — more murderous than tobacco. Animal rights is now the greatest social justice issue since the abolition of slavery.” Every day in the US, 75 million animals are killed for food. Harvard and Cornell have verified that we do not need to eat animals for nutrition; and with synthetics, we no longer need to use animals’ skin and fur for clothing.

Currently, billions of animals are enslaved in hellish conditions at CAFO’s (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations), labs, auctions and slaughterhouses. On dairies, newborn calves are abducted and murdered so that secretions of their mothers’ milk can be sold to consumers. When a dairy cow can no longer give birth and lactate, she is slaughtered. Similarly in the egg industry, newly hatched male chicks have the same fate as dairy bull calves; and when a layer hen no longer menstruates (eggs — a secretion of unfertilized ova), she is killed.

Understanding the spiritual and scientific law of cause and effect helps me to understand the epidemic of breast cancer and the pandemic of domestic violence.

“Cancer is most prevalent where carnivorous habits prevail.” (Scientific American, January 1892). Research and clinical studies done by Drs. Campbell and Esselstyn (featured in the films Forks Over Knives and Eating) confirms that consuming animals’ lactation and ovulatory secretions is just as damaging to human endothelial tissue as is eating animals’ flesh.

Buying milk products derived from plants (almond, hemp or coconut) is healthier and more compassionate. Albert Einstein (vegan) wrote, “If the whole world adopts vegetarianism, it can change the destiny of humankind.” At the root cause of the alarming rise of infectious diseases, climate-change disasters and ecological destruction is the mass production and slaughter of food animals. Worldwide, farmers are transitioning from animal-raising agriculture to veganic farming, and switching their product line from pork to plants and dairy to industrial hemp.

Radical social reformers such as Emerson, Thoreau, Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucy Stone (all of whom gave their speeches at Worcester’s Mechanics Hall) understood the connection of animal rights to human rights. As we sow, we reap.

In his book The World Peace Diet, Dr. Will Tuttle suggests that we can significantly reduce violence in human society by conscientiously examining our food choices and adopting a plant-based diet. Einstein also wrote, “Our task must be to free ourselves…by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and for the whole of nature in its beauty.” The films Bold Native and Earthlings bring light to the vegan message, as Spirit of Change brings light to its readers. I look forward to reading the fall issue “What Animals Know.”

Respectfully submitted,
