vimeo Wrote:Through a combination of hand-held and hidden camera footage, Lucent explores the darker side of Australia's pig farming industry, highlighting the day-to-day cruelty accepted by the industry as standard practice.
Lucent is the result of a successful crowdfunding campaign initiated in late 2013.

That's a pretty long doc, but looks interesting. cheers.gif will try to watch later tonight.
Have a look at this if you haven't already seen it...



Environmental catastrophe and animal cruelty all at the same time.

Ain't nothing but nation-wide famine could ever make me touch dead-ass.
Vibes just too bad.

38 years without meat, now.

The problem is pigs are highly intelligent animals, quite a bit smarter than dogs, no contest with cats, in fact - you have to start talking primates before their intellect gets overstepped.
I had a Vietnamese pot bellied pig as a pet for years and worked around them as a kid, so I know first hand.
To keep them in these deplorable conditions is beyond cruel.
Why the hell they don't sell turkey bacon here I'll never know - I could make the switch back real easy as I didn't touch pork for years prior to moving here.

Yes, I've done my homework on soy products, and no thanks. God knows there are enough estrogen mimicking chemicals in the environment as is without consuming them directly. Aside from the fact tofu and soy milk are nasty, neither males of females should be dining on endocrine disruptors.
I could see moving back to a diet with zero pork, and even taking it to the next level with only organic grass fed beef.
I gave up on doomdairy as well with the exception of fermented products like yogurt.
As the years pass, I realize more and more you really are what you eat. It directly affects brain function and gut health.
Considering serotonin is manufactured in the gut in quantities far exceeding the brain, it only makes sense to eat right.

Oy, mouth ulcers are awful. From my understanding, that basically that indicates that you have an intolerance on some level, and best to stay away from that stuff anyway.
As far as tempeh I've never hear of it until now. Interesting, but like a lot of "exotic" foodstuffs - that's certainly not available here, and while you can get most things in the US - I've never seen it.
Probably have to go to a health food store to get it there. I have read in Asia, the only way soy is consumed is in fermented form.
I have serious doubts as to vegans eating soy burgers on a wheat bun are doing themselves any favors.

im sure dead ass tastes nasty too.. chuckle.gif

i didnt realise you were vego? (what we call it in OZ) my brother, his wife and their five yearold are all vego's, not very smart ones though.. they hate cooking and the wife is extra bad at it, tofu sausages seems to be the norm most nights.. when i go over there i always take a feast with me, fill the table with lost of colour and flavour.. im not big on dairy (there is a dairy doom theory going around), so for me vegan makes sense.. i love my lentils and chickpeas.. especially the black ones..

is goldilocks veg?

Nah - I couldn't do without fish, shrimps, eggs.
What do you call such a person (except 'useless eater')?
Lacto-ovo-pesco-vegetarian?
Complicated shït. chuckle.gif

And no, goldie is not like that.
She loves her meat chuckle.gif

We're starting to see the sun again though, the days are dramatically longer and I've head a few of the birds practicing their spring calls.
