Eggs Represent Suffering and Death:
Want to Kill Fewer Animals? Give Up Eggs

Julia Galef, writer, public speaker and member of the board of directors of the New York City Skeptics, a non-profit organization promoting science education and critical thinking, writes a very compelling article that will help the reader understand that his/her food choices, have a great impact on animals.

Galef argues that in order to reduce as much the number of animals slaughtered for food, one needs to give up eggs first, because of the unwanted male chicks and the caloric content of eggs vs. meat. In addition, she argues that although the number of animals killed for food is important at the time of making decisions, the amount of suffering should be taken into account as well. To read the article please visit Want to Kill Fewer Animals? Give Up Eggs:

Indeed, egg-laying eggs are the most abused of God's animals in the food industry. They suffer tremendous pain, confinement and fear from birth to death, which is usually about 18 months. The extent of exploitation of these creatures is unimaginable and unacceptable. In the eyes of egg-laying hens, humans represent the devil. If we believe we share God's essence of love, shouldn’t we show love and compassion to God's farmed animals?
