    Really happy to hear your answer on food shaming. Regardless of whether you eat meat and animal products or you don't, you should be allowed to make your own choice and not be made to feel guilty or ashamed about it. Tolerance and self education is the only way that people will learn about new ideas and what it right for them both morally and physically.

    I have been toying with the idea of going vegetarian and am now bingewatching your vids on this. Very helpful!

    I've always been able to find a lot of awesome and delicious meat substitutes, but it's MUCH more rare that I'll find a cheese or dairy substitute that I like (excluding milk substitutes). Seems like it's harder to get them right…they always leave me wanting actual cheese. However, a few weeks ago I tried Tofutti brand vegan sour cream, and it is SO GOOD. It tastes very similar to actual sour cream, and I don't feel like I'd ever need to eat dairy sour cream ever again. It's hard to find, but amazing once you do.

    I've only been Vegan/Vegetarian for about a year, but I do believe it was the right decision. What's weird is that I kinda was an overnight Vegan. I had a short period of still eating a bit of cheese and milk and stuff, but that lasted like a week until I just said "F*ck it". You know what? I'm happy with that.

    look guys not trying to be mean, scientists hear your concerns. But im sure if we let you fanatics ( you are fanatics by definition since you dont adhere to reason but to emotion) make changes to the way we produce food, chaos is going to occur. So since you have no proper scientific education there is no reasoning with you and i get that but rest assured and hear me out. SCIENTISTS ARE NOT HEARTLESS MEN, BUT THINGS ARE NOT SO EASY AS YOU PRESENT THEM, ANY CHANGE YOU PROPOSE NEEDS AN APPROPRIATE ALTERNATIVE!!!! thank you, the scientists of he world (my english is bad and i know it)

    I'm a farmer who lives on a beef/crop farm with >200 Holstein Steers and >2000 acres of land. I would like to defend some of my viewpoints. Not trying to diss you or convince you to eat animal products, just given my views from the other side of the fence(ba dum tss)

    Something that pushes my buttons a bit is the notion that farmers treat their animals poorly. Are there farmers who treat the animals awful, of course there is, but it doesn't mean the entire industry of animal agriculture as a whole should be labeled as negative. Not all farmers are bad and not all are cruel to the animals. Us farmers want to insure that our animals are healthy and comfortable. Healthy and happy cows equals a high quality product. Being with animals all of your life, you can really tell when an animal is happy versus when it is stressed. We strive for happy cows. Cows specifically are social animals and enjoy being in groups, combine that with a clean barn, warm bedding, and good airflow, they live happy lives. Like many family farms, our's has both barns and pastures and when the animals are given the choice, they will usually choose the warm and safe shelters indoors.

    We care deeply about our livestock and we will sacrifice a lot to protect them. Just look at the wildfires in the Midwest U.S. 3 people in Texas died from the wildfire when they were trying to save cattle from the flames. Sure animals are treated poorly by a select few of individuals, but a vast majority of farmers care deeply about their livestock, so don't tell me that all farm animals are abused.

    Just my little soap box for perspective and I understand why people are vegetarian and vegan, but I don't always agree with their reasoning behind the decision. Do you boo, but know that companies like PETA don't really care about animals, they just like to profit off cruelty propaganda. If they cared about animals welfare, where were they during the wildfires that killed so many cows. Just sayin.

    P.S. My stance animal testing for the purpose of cosmetic products is fucked up tbh, that's basically torture. (also if you say the milk industry is basically the same, you have no idea what you are talking about.)

    I had a theory a couple of months ago. At the moment, as far as I know, there is research going on that is looking into growing human organs for transplants and stuff in the medical field. With this in mind, if we were to apply this same thing to an animal for consumption reasons, and were able to grow the animal parts we consume already, then I reckon that it has a possibility of replacing traditional ways of farming animals for their meat. I'm not denying that there would be some organisations that would do this and still treat their animals poorly but it's still a somewhat good idea to me. I'm not trying to dissuade anyone from their pesc/veg/ovo-lacto/vegan lifestyles. I'm putting this idea out there that maybe, for people who do eat meat but love animals, there is a way of eating meat but minus the killing part. Thoughts?

    I have so much to say about this videooo D;
    1. To the person whose parents are unsupportive – I get you. My parents are constantly making jabs about it but the best way is to be informed and informative. Tell them why (as Jenny said) and also that you know how to get proper nourishment etc because for some reason when you go vegan everyone who eats meat and two veg becomes a nutritionist.
    2. Preachy/Judgy vegans are the worst… I'll make mick takey animal corpse jokes occasionally but it's awful to try to force someone into something when it might not work for their situation. Weirdest thing is vegans telling others how they're not doing it right….
    3. I eat curry. So much. Chickpeas, Sweet Potato, Spinach, Potato, Beetroot, Red Kidney Beans, Tofu, Peas… The list is endless! 😀

    What do you think is better, growing your own animals to eat or buying products from the good companies.

    with all respect on everyone opinions but that almost all lies( all your informational background not your experience), i agree with everyone having their option of what kinda diet to have, but you aren't really well educated in most of the things you are talkin about, no owner will mistread their animals, it just stupid they will be losing profit if the do, animal cruelty in livestock is usually on packers or slaugther house that exactly what has to change, not the way the raise them, and sadly no matter how many people become vegatarian the industry wont change some livestock are necessary for the enviroment and it a way to control the competition for other sources of food with humans, recently become vegan/vegetarian is a trend and some actually do make it into a lifestyle but eating less meat is terrible for your body, by nature we are mostly suppost to eat meat your body funtions as a omnivore more carnivore than anything we arent ruminants so there alot of green we can't process, there alot of bad a fake news about meat being bad for you with had no scientific background, anyone thing on cutting down meat should read the big fat surprise a great book for even those that dont understarnd anything about biology nutrition and animal producting, there are of course alot of other great book but without any medical, or upperlevel studying i feel most people wont understand.

    i cant talk for the makeup industry but i feel you aren't fully educated in the non eating meat subject, i want to recommend the book contemporaty issues in animal agriculture by petter r. cheeke,it cover alot of subject, from product, consume and nutrition, vegan vegetarians, enviroment etc. is a pretty round book quite price but is a great book. I cant tell from you diet but if you arent taking any supplement you are probably not getting all your nutrient requierement, is a sad fact that no vegan diet without supplement can keep you healthy, you should read shred it! by robert cheeke. he the son of the other dr. with lives a vegan lifestyle it cover supplements and level of nutrition.
    but i agree with you in some agree i prefer cruelty free products, but im not educated with the whole experimental area that the only reason i prefer not buy those products.

    I've been a vegetarian for nearly 7 years now. A few years ago I was walking on the street with a vegan friend and we were approached by a vegan protester trying to convince us to go vegan. I told him we are a vegetarian and a vegan. He turned to my friend and said "good for you!" Turned to me and said "why don't you go vegan?!" In a very angry and condescending way. I'm not full vegan however I do try to cut down as much dairy and egg I eat and about 90% of the time I do eat vegan. I feel that a lot of time some vegans see vegetarians as as bad or even worse than meat eaters and that's a problem because we are fighting for the same cause and attacking people for their choices doesn't help, like you said, it's better to educate people which would make them want to join the cause more.

    Thanks for the video! Super insightful! I just went vegan in January (straight from meat-eating to veganism). I think I'm having trouble eating enough and getting the right nutrients. I'm in university right now and every time I visit my parents, they tell me I look like I've lost weight (weight that even I don't think I need to lose) and I don't always feel at 100%. Does anybody have any advice with this? I think I'm struggling with finding the time to cook and my life is only going to continue getting busier but I definitely don't want to stop being vegan. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies!

    I've only been pescetarian for 10 months, but I already feel sickened by the thought of eating steak. Just taking in that much meat would make me feel sick.
