Of late I have seen some people on social media saying that before long, the entire world will be vegan; that farmers and food producers could go and get other jobs, either that or die out!
This also went for fishermen, people who have invested huge amounts of money in aquaculture, modern chicken production, free range eggs production, the dairy industry, apiarists, and so many other industries.
Many of these industries have not been perfect in the past, generally from ignorance, but times have changed and controlling bodies are now in place to monitor them. A lot of information published by activists such as PETA are wrongfully slanted, even manipulated to support their agenda.
I found a lot of the statements naive and not very well thought out, or in my view, extremely selfish, although I do not approve of cruelty, but in, let’s call it what it is, the killing of animals for human consumption in the most humane way possible.
Foods you may never see again and dependent industries at risk!
- Beef: Leather for shoes, handbags, belts and clothing
- Lamb/mutton: Wool products, coats, sheepskin coats, parkas and clothing
- Pork/ham/bacon: Paint brushes
- Abalone: Shells
- Oysters: Pearls
- Squab: Hat feathers
- Rabbit: Akubra hats
- Crocodiles: Shoes, bags, belts
And other exotic foods
- Sea fish: Tuna, flake, rockling, plus many others
- Salmon, trout plus many more
- Ice cream
And I’m sure I have missed many many more!
All these industries would be wiped out plus all the associated industries
Look at each one individually. Count the number of people involved in each of these industries, including the controlling bodies world wide and the supporting industries.The domino effect would be catastrophic!
- Many people have serious nut allergies
- Many people cannot tolerate huge amounts of raw salad foods (I am one)
- Many people do not have large quantities of vegetables in their diet, some from necessity and many from choice
- Canned foods pretending to be meat are generally over processed and disgusting
Also, look at all the cooking shows on television, where most of the menus centre around meat.
Now, I don’t approve of too much deli meats, but that’s another industry.
Do you really think that an attempt to make all the people of the world vegan won’t meet stiff resistance from all the meat eaters, the food industries and their connections? That they will just let it happen! Do you really think the average man will happily give up his steak? The cultures of most nations centres around their food and these include animal/animal products.
So, those of you who enjoy a bit of flake with your chips, some calamari, a juicy streak on the bbq, a tub of yoghurt, butter on your toast, nice fresh trout, bacon and eggs for Sunday breakfast, or a roast for Sunday lunch, a really nice meaty sauce for your spaghetti, or maybe a slice of ham with your Christmas lunch, or the turkey drumstick, well, if these people are right, you had better be prepared for a Christmas lunch of tofu, salad and a bowl of nuts!
What are your thoughts?
