1 Cows Have Complex Feelings.
Cows are gentle social animals. They have the ability to recognize more than 100 other cows, and they form close friendships with members of their herd and also with humans.
2 Your Body Will Thank You
To make cows grow at an unnaturally fast rate, the cattle industry implants them with pellets full of hormones. While low levels of naturally occurring hormones are found in various foods, many scientists are concerned that the artificial hormones injected into cows cause health problems in humans who eat them. Many of these hormones are illegal in many countries.
3 Plant-Based Meat Is Better Than Ever
Leaving cows and other animals off your plate is easier than ever. You can now get tasty veggie burgers at numerous restaurants, and every food store is beginning to carry vegetarian beef replacements, all of which are delicious and cholesterol- and cruelty-free.
