My self-summary
I am athletic, loves all kind of sports. Working out is in my daily routine. I like animals. I have a 6 months old german sheppard. I am a vegetarian.

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in the United States, over 9 billion animals are slaughtered for human consumption every year, approximately 20 million suffer in laboratories, another 5 million are killed for their fur, and countless others are enslaved for entertainment.

In the UK alone, almost 900 million animals are slaughtered for food each year. That means about fifteen live animals, per person, per year.

These animals are as intelligent and feeling as any household pet. Yet mostly they are intensively reared, forced to live tortured, short and miserable lives; denied access to their young and deprived of any real quality of life; fed unnatural diets, in some cases pumped full of chemicals to improve yield and lessen disease; kept in cramped conditions where they frequently develop physical and psychological abnormalities.

Then they are transported from factory farm to livestock market and finally to the horrors of the slaughterhouse.

Some animals even have to endure the long, stressful and hazardous haul to markets abroad, often in extremes of weather, without adequate provision of food, water, air and light, to places where conditions are often much worse.

Then they are finally put out of their misery in the most barbaric manner.

Without doubt, the greatest single cause of animal suffering in the US is food production. Vegetarianism is the only humane and civilised answer.



I am new, friendly, and curious
What I’m doing with my life
The abuse and exploitation of non-human animals is pervasive throughout our society. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, in the United States, over 9 billion animals are slaughtered for human consumption every year, approximately 20 million suffer in laboratories, another 5 million are killed for their fur, and countless others are enslaved for entertainment.
I’m really good at
Modern vegetarian food is far more accessible and diverse than it has ever been. Mouthwatering, satisfying veggie food is now available almost everywhere -- and this is just one of the reasons why it has never been easier to go vegetarian.

It is also true to say that many people have become bored with the limitations offered by traditional flesh-based foods, craving something that is fresh, exciting and very often different.

Vegetarian food offers this and so much more.

Although vegetarian food tastes fantastic and offers a wide scope of choice and flavour, in many cases it is also cheaper than meat and fish-based meals. It is neither hard to find nor difficult to prepare, but the fact remains that most people in the UK adopting a vegetarian diet do so out of concern for animal welfare, the environment and their own health.

The vast majority of pigs in the US are reared intensively which leads to such diseases as pneumonia, meningitis and swine vesicular fever, while 10 to 15 per cent suffer from lameness

Livestock makes use of one third of the total landmass on earth. About 26 per cent of the US's total global warming methane emissions come from livestock.

The first things people usually notice about me
Animals can languish in traps for days. Up to 1 out of every 4 trapped animals escapes by chewing off his or her own feet, only to die later from blood loss, fever, gangrene, or predation.

Ranch-raised foxes are kept in cages only 2.5 feet square (minks in cages 1-foot-by-3-feet), with up to four animals per cage.

Though Judaism and Christianity may have different traditions and rituals, believers of both persuasions challenge the morality of killing animals for their fur. Every animal was created with the capacity to feel pain, but the fur industry cares nothing about their suffering. Animals caught in steel-jaw traps (so cruel that they have been outlawed in 89 countries) suffer excruciating pain, sometimes for days, before their chests are stomped on or their necks broken by trappers. On fur farms, animals spend their entire lives in tiny, filthy cages, exposed to searing heat and bitter cold. There is no federal humane slaughter law to protect animals on fur factory farms, so they are killed using gruesome methods such as electrocution, suffocation, carbon-monoxide poisoning, and neck-breaking. Sometimes these methods only stun the animals, who end up being skinned alive.

The Torah prohibits Jews from causing tsa�ar ba�alei chayim�unnecessary pain to any living being�but trapping animals causes immense pain only for the sake of vanity. Putting animals through intense suffering simply to indulge human vanity is not in harmony with Jewish teachings.

Jews and Christians can either add to the level of violence, misery, and death in the world or they can respect creation by choosing not to purchase products that involve animal suffering.

Refuse to buy or wear fur or fur-trimmed clothing and accessories. Help animals who will be killed for their fur and let others know about the cruelty of the fur industry by handing out our Jewish and Christian anti-fur leaflets at places of worship this winter.

The six things I could never do without
According to a study by Ford Motor Company engineer Gregory H. Smith, it takes almost three times as much energy to make a coat from trapped animals' pelts�and 40 times as much from ranch-raised furs�than it does to make a fake fur coat.

To kill the animals without damaging their fur, trappers usually strangle, beat, or stomp them to death. Animals on fur farms may be gassed, electrocuted, poisoned with strychnine, or have their necks snapped. These methods are not 100 percent effective and some animals "wake up" while being skinned.

A vegetarian diet is much better for the environment and meat and fish production is without doubt contributing to damaging our planet irreparably.

Methane-emitting livestock contribute to global warming and the 'Greenhouse Effect' -- roughly about one-quarter of all methane emissions come from this source. Ammonia from animal waste and agricultural fertilisers contributes to acid rain, which kills aquatic and plant life. Intensive grazing causes soil erosion and nutrient depletion, which harms plant life and in some cases renders the soil infertile, creating vast, barren deserts where previously there was fertile land.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
This is despite the fact that some of the world's seas close to industrialised areas contain potentially lethal cocktails of toxic waste and effluent some of the results of which can be seen in the open sores, cancerous tumours and deformities found on some captured fish.

The fragile eco-systems of the world's oceans continue to be ruined and coral reefs and other habitats are being destroyed. Pollution and fishing are two of the major causes.

Dolphins, whales, sharks and turtles are also indiscriminately killed by drift netting and in some parts of the world, such species are still deliberately slaughtered for food.

Massive amounts of dead and dying fish are thrown back into the sea, ironically deemed too small, they are needlessly deprived of life, as factory fishing vessels lay waste vast areas of the sea in minutes. Such needless destruction means that not enough numbers are reaching suitable maturity to replenish the species properly.
