Letter from Arthur Poletti to the U. S. Congress about Meat Eating and Veganism - 14 May 2007

Dear Members of The United States Congress.

The moral of this message can be summed up
with this famous quotation.

"Our task must be to free ourselves by widening
our circle of compassion to embrace all living
creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase
the chances of survival for life on earth as much as
the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
~Albert Einstein, physicist, Nobel Prize winner 1921

Everyday large numbers of Americans as well
as people throughout the world stop eating
meat and hundreds of millions of meat eaters are
constantly sampling delicious vegetarian alternatives.

A significant percentage of those people will also
become vegetarians. Hopefully, one day relatively
soon, for everyone's benefit, animal factory farms
and slaughterhouses will begin to close in the United
States and several other countries because of a
dramatic and continuous decline in the consumption
of dead animal flesh.

Simply put, if all people can get along perfectly
well without eating meat then why not promote and
support the obvious transition to vegetarian based
foods?

Why torture and kill billions of animals and eat
their dead flesh if it is not necessary?

I have posted several web site addresses at the
bottom of this message that reveal some of
the overwhelming evidence about the hazards
related to the livestock industry. The factual
statistics are mind boggling and frightening.

To seriously consider the many reasons to remove
meat from the food chain, from an entirely different
perspective, please take the time to read my book
God Does Not Eat Meat "for free online" at:
http://www.all-creatures.org/book/gdnem.html 

This thought provoking and controversial story
cuts between a violent and bloody present world
in which millions of animals are slaughtered daily,
to a future America where all meat has been
removed from the food chain and animal factory
farms and slaughterhouses have all been closed.

When you are finished reading God Does Not
Eat Meat please ask yourself which society
you would prefer to live in and which society
would be best for the health and welfare of
people, especially children, and animals, and
the economy of the United States?

The first large slaughterhouses could begin to
close in Slovenia and adjacent countries before
they close in the United States because of the
influence and recommendations of Slovenian
President Dr. Janez Drnovsek who is a "vegan"

He knows first hand what many of the countless
benefits are of being a vegetarian and a vegan and
he is not afraid to tell everyone what he knows about
how much better off societies everywhere would be
by converting to a vegetarian based food supply.

It is important that members of the United States
Congress invite "vegan" Slovenian President
Drnovsek to Washington, DC to make a presentation to
members of Congress explaining why he became a
vegetarian and then a vegan and the potential benefits
of vegetarianism for people, animals, the environment,
and the economy of Slovenia.

Like President Drnovsek, I hope our political leaders
will be brave and bold and always have the courage to
check within themselves, to repair and to refine their
convictions, their beliefs, and their way of life. In the
light of new data gained, in the presence of new ideas
accepted, their old beliefs may have to be changed in
its form or content.

Please read the reports below about how the
livestock industry has affected global warming,
and the health and welfare of people and animals.

Respectfully,
Arthur Poletti
