Heavy trawl boards smash their way across the ocean floor, destroying everything in their path. Every year more countries scramble to join the killing fields of tuna drift netting and with each net go the lives of more whales and dolphins, rays and seabirds, turtles and sharks. Some countries continue with their slaughter of whales. Mammals with a language more complex than our own, but of which we understand not one word. Intensive factory farming has also come to the seas of Europe and it is salmon, mysterious migratory creatures which are the chosen captives. It is like caging swallows. Crammed into cages they can only survive with the use of antibiotics and pesticides and are made marketable by colouring their flesh with an additive banned in the USA. And to feed these imprisoned creatures, the seas are trawled for other fish, industrial fish.... 5 pounds to produce 1 pound of salmon meat. PCBs are industrial chemicals, some of the most poisonous substances known, these now infect almost the whole of the oceans' food chain. FACTS 5: Nine of the world's 17 major fisheries are in serious decline. All of the others have reached their limits. Worldwide 124 billion dollars are spent every year catching just 70 billion dollars worth of fish. Recent surveys suggest that over 40% of fish caught in the North sea are diseased - often with cancerous tumours. An estimated 240,000 tonnes of PCB's (effectively banned in the UK since 1980) are thought to have entered the world's oceans. Strongly migratory salmon are factory farmed at stocking densities of 15kg per squaremetre. Health Welfare Supposedly we are the most intelligent of all creatures, capable of complex feelings and what do we do? We imprison other intelligent creatures in solitary confinement, until they go mad. We deny them the ability to fulfil their most basic instincts. We treat their living, feeling young as inanimate commodities and then we eat them. Restlessly wandering fowl are crammed into cages too small to even stretch their wings. All are quickly fattened in damp, dark sheds often crippled by their ballooning weight and all face the same end in an automated production line and then we eat them. Pain and suffering are relative concepts we are told, in the pursuit of cheap meat do not concern yourself, we are told, about the infections that come with cheap meat.... campylobacter, salmonella, mad cow disease. 'Meat to Live' we are told, ignoring the heart disease and bowel cancer and other ailments which go hand in hand with eating meat. Profit has no conscience, only a balance sheet. In its name both animals and people are there to be exploited. FACTS 6: Heart disease is the major cause of death in the UK and the developed world. Studies have shown vegetarians to suffer 30% less heart disease than meat eaters. Cancer accounts for a quarter of all premature deaths in the UK. At least one third of all cancers are directly related to diet. Many risk factors are significantly reduced on a vegetarian diet. Research shows the incidence of colon, breast, prostate and other cancers is lower among vegetarians. It's estimated that about 2,000,000 people suffer from food poisoning every year (in the UK). Almost all food poisoning is from meat diary products. In the last 2 seconds of our evolutionary year we have destroyed and poisoned in a rate unknown in the history of the earth. Growth and consumption have caused the problem, yet we are told that even more growth and consumption can cure it. Are we any richer, any happier, any more ennobled for all the death, the pain and the destruction? We have bequeathed our children a world which contains less wonder than when we inherited it. We have poisoned their water, polluted their air and laid most of their land waste. We are handing them a world which to us looked certain, but is now teetering on the brink of catastrophe. And still governments do nothing, but you can. Simply by giving up meat, poultry, fish and slaughterhouse by-products, you'll make an immediate contribution to ending the pain, the cruelty and the destruction. Stop the killing by becoming vegetarian, you have the choice. You can help stop the cruelty and destruction today. Join the Vegetarian Society. Join the fight for life. --Sent via *******heyspread**** : Upload videos to multiple sites quickly
