All vegans are ghosts

Yeah, were all dead, my diet is so bad I`m blogging from beyond the graaave!

This blog is to let you see animals how they really are and that they are not "less" than humans, they are not like the happy dead faced cows on the packaging, they are not your steak, burger, hot dog, cheese, shoes, eggs, bag, coat, lipstick, eyeliner, entertainment, mcdonalds or KFC.
(And there are alternatives to all of these products..)
They are not stupid, happy or ready to die for you convenience They know exactly what`s next in the line to the slaughter house and they go in screaming, just like you would.
They are not your slaves and you do not need them to be.

Bumblebees teetering on the verge of extinction in the UK have stunned conservationists by staging a sudden revival.



A project that began as an attempt to reintroduce an extinct bumblebee to Britain has sparked a comeback by five other species whose numbers have dwindled alarmingly in recent decades.
Conservationists say the speed of their recovery suggests that the bees can cope with some pesticide use by farmers, if they have wild flowers to feed on and a place to live.
Dr Nikki Gammans, of the Short-Haired Bumblebee Project, said: “It’s not a doom-and-gloom scenario. We can actually reverse this trend.”

SIGNAL BOOST!!!!

This video might be the most clever way to raise money for dogs in need, because all you need to do is watch it.

"Just by watching these puppies, you’re raising money for dogs in need," says the narrator in the video above. "You see, if a video goes viral, YouTube shares the money they made from advertising with whoever made the video, and in this case, every dollar we earn will go toward feeding, treating and finding homes for dogs who haven’t been as lucky as us."

The video comes from The Pedigree Adoption Drive, and ends by imploring viewers to share because the more views received, the more money will be raised.

So share this video. You know, for the dogs.

thoughtsand0pinions asked: The only thing I'm struggling with is finding alternatives to diary foods. I am currently switching from regular milk to almond milk, but I know i'm gonna have trouble with cheese and yogurt.

For milk check this out: image

Where I live I can find soy yogurt only, and there are many flavors you can choose from. I’m not a yogurt fan myself… If you consume yogurt because of the probiotics, there are other options for this: kombucha, sauerkraut, and miso, for example. My choice is to take probiotics in capsules, making sure that the capsules are vegan/vegetarian friendly, which usually means without gelatin. I found a Raw Coconut Yogurt Recipe, could be good. 

Breaking news! Scientists Develop Grain and Nut-Based Vegan Yogurt Packed with Probiotics!

Now for the cheese. You could find recipes to make your own vegan cheese, that’s one option. I don’t consume so much vegan cheese, but what I do is I buy it online. I can’t find vegan cheese here anywhere that’s why I order it. I recently tried one from Vegusto (they have a lot of cheese alternatives). I think I tried the No-Moo Golden. It was good. One thing I’ve noticed since going vegan is that milky/cheesy/greasy flavors are too strong for me, I don’t find them so enjoyable anymore. If you live in the US I would say you have better chances of getting the best vegan cheeses in the market. 

Cheese is very addictive:

In 1981, scientists in North Carolina discovered that cow’s milk has traces of a chemical that not only looked like morphine but turned out to be exactly that. It’s not unique to cow’s milk—you can find it in human milk as well. Morphine, of course, is an opiate. If that weren’t enough for your brain to handle, a protein in milk called casein releases opiates, called casomorphins, upon digestion, too. When you eat a slice of cheese, digestion breaks the casein into casomorphins of various lengths. One of them, a short string made up of just five amino acids, has about one-tenth the painkilling potency of prescription morphine.To have a calf, or a human baby for that matter, addicted to mother’s milk makes sense, from an evolutionary perspective. They have to really crave it in order to survive.

How its made: Mattress

*Mattresses may not be vegan.*

They may contain wool, silk, non-vegan latex (which often utilizes casein), or cashmere fiber.

The good news: vegan mattresses exist! (Just google it)

"What’s in a mattress is pretty straight forward but as with so many things in the common household, not much thought is put into what you’re lying upon every night for years. While choosing a vegan mattress may not be important to you, there are other things to consider like whether or not you’ll be using a chemical flame retardant, organic fibers, memory foam or synthetic or natural latex amongst other things. To know what goes into the actual manufacturing process gives you power over your own environment and can even help you to no longer support industries that may be acting harmfully against the earth or choose a mattress with harmful chemicals inside it.

In case you’re ready to just ditch your bed altogether, what are alternatives to the mattress that will still provide enough support and comfort but without the side effects or political challenges?

There’s a “Straw Tick” (see here for instructions) which is a mattress stuffed with straw covered by a thick fabric (like a futon cover). This is a great alternative because it’s all natural, the straw won’t go bad and it’s completely biodegradable as well as easy to dispose of if you have a garden (otherwise maybe you have access to yard waste collection). Additionally, the mattress cover keeps the straw free of dust and mold. There are  buckwheat mattresses (like the straw tick above) as well.

So a better question than “why isn’t my mattress vegan” might be how can you make your mattress vegan? And while you’re making your mattress vegan, you will also be greening up your life– turning your life into something that is much more sustainable, environmentally friendly and progressive as well as much less expensive and therefore much less consumptive than a “mattress” full of flame retardant chemicals and other harmful substances.

And, before I end this piece– briefly consider the ecological toll that a mattress has:

  • It is full of chemicals required by law to increase “safety.”
  • It generally uses animal products from animals that were treated poorly and have greatly affected their environment.
  • It uses springs which come from unsustainable mines and are manufactured and refined in plants that cause environmental destruction.
  • It sometimes uses soy which is the leading cause of deforestation in South American rainforests as well as one of the top 5 most used GMO crops in the world.
  • It always ends up in a land fill when the usefulness of the product has met its end. It can not be returned to the store and most people do not want to buy second hand mattresses due to a fear of bed bugs.”
