Study: Meat Consumption on a Steady Decline in United States
By Nathan Runkle
As Americans are becoming more aware of farmed animal cruelty - and stomach-churning meat industry practices like using “pink slime” and “meat glue,” it’s no wonder the demand for meat is slowly sinking. According to a new study compiling data by the USDA, National Center for Health Statistics, United Nations, and the U.S. Census Bureau, the average meat eater consumed fewer land animals in 2011 than any year going back to 2000. 
On the whole, Americans consumed about 56 million fewer land animals last year than in 2000. That’s 4 million fewer cows, 7.6 million pigs, 26.2 million chickens, 15.3 million turkeys, and 3.2 million ducks. Just from 2010, the average meat eater ate one fewer animal—a 4% decrease in one year. Meat consumption peaked in 2004, but has been on a decline ever since. Overall, the nationwide consumption of land animals dropped from 8.9 billion animals in 2005 to 8.2 billion in 2011. 
While this drop in meat consumption is good news, the sad truth remains that billions of animals slaughtered for food continue to suffer intensive confinement, painful mutilations, brutal handling, and violent deaths. Visit ChooseVeg.com to find out how you can make a difference by switching to a cruelty-free, plant-based diet.

Coca Cola reveals its secret: It may need to carry a cancer warning


veganlove:

Coca-Cola is altering its drink in the US after the state of California declared one of its flavourings a carcinogen – though it will continue to sell the old form of the drink in Britain and the rest of Europe, with no cautionary labelling.

The two drinks have been made to include less of the chemical 4-methylimidazole, a caramel flavouring known as 4-MEI, which the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences in the US has linked it to cancer in mice and leukaemia in rats. It can be formed during the process of cooking certain ingredients and consequently may be found in minor amounts in many foods. Under Californian law, drinks containing a certain level of carcinogens must have a cancer-warning label on their packaging.

“On a deeper level, the recent obsession among rock-stars, hipsters and fashionistas with indigenous and native people’s aesthetics in general – from hair extensions and jewelry made from feathers to Navajo prints, fur, shearling, and fox-tail key-chains to full on feather headdresses – speaks of a large-scale desire to commune with nature and animals. People want to embrace the aesthetic of being wild, free, a nature warrior, and one with wild nature. The intention of this trend is good – after all, we did evolve over millions of years in nature with animals, but in a modern consumer culture, where horrible production processes are hidden and obscured by advertising and sleek PR, the relationship we have to the birds whose feathers are ripped out couldn’t be further from one that honors them or represents any legitimate connection to wild nature. It is a contradiction. I would go as far as saying that this aesthetic appropriation isn’t just a lie, but because of its insincerity or ability to live up to what it claims to represent (communion with nature),  it is an incredibly perverted appropriation of traditional native and indigenous people’s aesthetics. It does to animals exactly the opposite of what it intends to visually represent:” -Joshua Katcher of The Discerning Brute

“A mother breast feeding her three year old son is apparently newsworthy, and people are quick to express their disgust. Perhaps it is a bit strange, but really - who gives a shit? What IS genuinely disturbing and downright vile is a grown adult consuming cow milk.”
