Complaining about the right to choose?

Why wasn’t that right taken advantage of the night at the bar to NOT have Sex with someone ones barely knew?

A woman or man could EASILY say, “you know what I’m not going to sleep with this man/woman because if something were to happen
I’m not ready to have A baby, especially with someone I barely know” …

Same goes for pretty much EVERY OTHER SCENARIO that could be brought up.

If A woman is carrying A child from being rapped or some other Circumstances, there should be some kind of Exceptions.

The #ROOT of it all, WHAT DO YOU SEE?

The people have this world have been programmed & Hardwired to self destruct from birth on …

What ever happened to THAT side of life, sex & relationship being sacred?

This week, investigators found that German #meat companies sold sausages made from bones.

The #livestock sector is highly secretive, hiding its practices from the public eye. As a result, many people don't know what animal products are made of, including these 8 examples.👇1/11
Many #ChickenNuggets contain very little actual meat.

Instead, they mostly consist of fat and other body parts, including #chicken nerves, bone, skin, and connective tissue. @iltaylorwriter reports. 2/11

Few people know that #horse blood can be involved in the production of pork and beef.

Farmers across Europe use a hormone derived from pregnant mares to increase reproduction in pigs, #cows & other farmed animals. @KevanySophie reports via @guardian. 3/11

🔴Action by XR Animal to demand a halt to all #FactoryFarms.
#Meat production needs to be reduced by 83% by 2050 in 🇧🇪 to reduce greenhouse gases by 58% and nitrogen emissions by 40%. This would reduce pressure on biodiversity by 76%. #RebelForLife #StopSpeciesism Image
...Proximity, violence and disease are the daily lot of the animals exploited in factory farms.
No-man's-lands where cruelty is a daily occurrence and where ethical and health scandals are constantly breaking out. #AnimalCruelty Image
...From the mad cows (1997) to eggs contaminated with Finopril (2017), via the dioxin crisis (1999) and the massacre of thousands of poultry due to the umpteenth re-emergence of avian flu, factory farms favour the proliferation of dangerous pathologies. #zoonoses Image

The Supreme Court of the #Netherlands rules that #Pfizer residual products enter the human food chain via livestock farming. #Dutch laboratories #RIVM judges that it can do no harm despite independent reports of cancer-causing risks. #farmers #boeren #meat #vlees #HumanResources
in the Netherlands, reports from independent scientists with reporting obligations are set aside by Rivm. Political MPs are required to remain silent. People are aware that they are evading #EU legislation, you can read in WOB documents. Alzo with growth hormone #17betaoestradiol
The #EuropeanCommission has informed the #Netherlands in writing that the risks to human health are irresponsible if the #Eu legislation on public health is not followed. Farmers are fighting to the courtroom that nothing may be made public about the safety of their own products.

Thread on #Magnesium and why it is fundamental for our #health. #micronutrients
..many people debate the various ratios of #macronutrients like #protein, #fat, and #carbohydrates in their diet to find their optimal health. Which is great as we are #bioindividuals but most miss out on #micronutrients like #vitamins and #minerals.
The way our bodies are able to use the #macronutrients is fully dependent on how our #enzymatic pathways are influenced by various #micronutrients. One of the most important amongst is #magnesium.

Did you know that this week marks #EndangeredSpeciesDay and #BiodiversityDay?

We honor these days by highlighting the need to change our eating habits and fashion choices to protect animals from going extinct.👇1/10
Animals play a crucial role in maintaining a healthy #environment. For example:

- beaver dams prevent fires
- squirrels help trees take root
- #fish feces can lock carbon away for 600 years
- elephants create water sources for other species

Skyrocketing #global #foodprices, panicked low income and poorer fringes of the population facing severe #hardship, struggling #emergingmarkets and #SriLanka on the verge of #anarchy - all wrapped up in a massive #market sell-off: what is happening 🌎 ❓
Things did not improve in April on #food prices:
the #FAO Food Price Index fell 0.8% month-over-month to 158.5 points in April 2022, but still remained close to the all-time high of 159.7 points in March.
#vegetableoil prices declined significantly (-5.7%) after hitting an all-time high in March under pressure from #palm, #sunflower and #soybean #oils.

In addition, #grain prices fell slightly (-0.4%), after also rising to all-time highs in March.

At Sentient Media, we report on an industry that touches all our lives yet operates in secrecy: factory farming.

On #WorldPressFreedomDay, we call on governments to lift #AgGag laws and share 13 findings we could only report thanks to the help of undercover investigators.👇1/17 Image
“Ag-gag” laws punish whistleblowers and investigators for recording footage inside #FactoryFarms.

In 2021, @ALDF released a film on how #AgGag laws conflict with the First Amendment while concealing pollution, food safety threats, and animal cruelty. 2/17

If EVERYONE in the entire world was given the KEY to the DOOR OF ALL DOORS & told it was unlocked;
-How many would check to see if it was really unlocked first before entering?
-How many do you think would use the key?
-How many wouldn’t trust at all?
-How many would Knock?
A Key & A lock, What does it ultimately symbolize?
#TRUST?

You lock your homes when you leave, right?
#WHY?
TRUST?

So many call it Religion, I call it relationship.
How many have brother & sisters, do they have A key to your home?
Do they just walk right in?

The world
Was/has been #GIVEN THE KEY, what does it symbolize/Represent?

A world that NEEDS locked doors, why?
What’s the #ROOT of ALL doors NEEDING to be locked?
What’s the #ROOT of all the worlds struggles?
What’s the #ROOT of everyones FEAR?
What’s the #ROOT of everyones Safety?

Here's the story of our POLITICS OF PROTEIN report out today. A thread 🧵

For decades, governments & corporations expanded factory farming - claiming more protein was needed for #foodsecurity.

Now they're confronted with the consequences... /1
Devastating deforestation, immense land use, pollution, impacts on health, climate & animals from intensive factory farming are clear for all to see.

Thankfully momentum for change is growing. /2 ImageImage
But those same actors (and some new philanthropists & venture capital) are now pushing a number of techno-fix solutions. These are many of the same firms that already dominate sales of conventional (factory-farmed) products. /3 ImageImage

#FunFactsAboutGoats
Goats were one of the first animals to be tamed by humans and were being herded 9,000 #years ago.
Goat #meat is the most consumed meat per capita worldwide.
Goats can be taught their name and to come when called.
#Thread #youthtoag
1/9
Goats have a gestation period (pregnancy) of five months, and the average birth rate for goats is 2.2 kids per year.
Baby goats (kids) are standing and taking their first steps within minutes of being born.
2/9
Each kid has a unique call, and along with its scent, that is how its mother recognizes it from birth – not by sight.
Contrary to the dominant stereotype about goats being willing to eat anything, they are actually very picky eaters.

DON’T BE #BLIND & TRULY SEE THE WHOLE WORLD WITH THE EYES THAT IT WAS ALL MEANT TO BE SEEN …

#WHY do so many focus so much on ONLY the negative/evil/Darkness? ..

Everyone should know [THEIR] symbolism & be able to see clearly on not only where all the darkness stems from
But also should be able to see WHO all of [Them] are by now.
Once you see WHO is WHO, choose to forgive & move on with your life like there is no [Them], Helping create A future for the children KNOWING Justice will be served …

OR ..

Choose to stay stuck within wicked ways
Of judging others/[Them] & you yourself will be judged the Very same ways YOU chose to judge ..

The images I’m posted have absolutely NOTHING to do with “evil symbolism” as I was stating above, I’m showing THE LIGHT side of things & WHY they were created as they were ..

Russia's attack on #Ukraine has intensified calls for a transition away from #FossilFuels.

The war also highlights the need for #FoodSystem change. Today, we explore how #AnimalAgriculture fuels global crises by creating high levels of dependency between countries. 1/11👇
Ukraine produces large quantities of wheat, barley, rye, and #maize. Russia is the world’s top #wheat exporter.

The two countries taken together account for almost a third of the global wheat export market, @weizent reports via @CNBC. 2/11
cnbc.com/2022/02/23/imp…
Maize and wheat are just two examples of crops #meat and dairy producers feed to animals.

The #livestock sector currently uses 61% of global maize and 20% of global wheat as animal fodder, according to a 2021 study about #FoodSecurity. 3/11

Cows don't just naturally make #milk but must be impregnated and give birth in order for lactation to occur, and calves must be routinely removed for that milk to be rerouted for human consumption.

Why it's important to know what *they* mean by the phrase "nutrient dense."
The 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans' third suggestion to "make every bite count" - Image
You might think you know what they mean by "nutrient dense," but let's check. So #dairy & #meat only qualify if they're low-fat because naturally-occurring animal fats are not nutrients, per DGA. Lettuce, a vegetable, does, per DGA. Does this fit your definition? Image
It gets worse!
"Plain Shredded Wheat," "Vegetable Oil," & "Sparkling Water" are nutrient dense but not butter, per DGA!!
"These folks can't be serious" you might think. Wrong. When dealing with them, insist on understanding their terms & phrases. Metrics (& language) matter. Image

March 1 is #NationalPigDay, a day celebrating the sentience and intelligence of domesticated #pigs.

We honor National Pig Day 2022 by taking a close look at how #FactoryFarming impacts millions of pigs worldwide raised for human consumption by the #pork industry.👇 1/10 Image
Pigs are considered the fifth most intelligent #animal on Earth and can outperform three-year-old children on cognition tests.

Despite their proven sensitivity and intelligence, millions of #pigs are slaughtered by the #pork industry every year. 2/10

Pigs are the third most commonly slaughtered #animal in the world.

In 2019, around 1.3 billion #pigs were killed for #food globally which means that approximately 3.5 million pigs were slaughtered every single day, according to @animal_clock. 3/10

‼️📢 The #GlobalBurdenOfDisease (GBD) study is used globally in health policies. Very odd things are going on, incl. the assumption that every bite of red #meat is harmful (?!) In this letter to The Lancet 👇 we are asking to see the evidence. thelancet.com/journals/lance…
We were told that the GBD/IHME scientists were initially committed to respond to our questions but they seem to have changed their minds. No response was submitted, despite requests from The Lancet’s Editorial Team to do so 🤔
This is what GBD now assumes to be the effect of red meat intake on all-cause mortality relative risk, having effectively reduced the theoretical minimum risk exposure level (TMREL) of red meat to ZERO !?! healthdata.org/results/gbd_su… Image
