Christian Vegetarian Association Presents:
Take Heart!

Eye-opener Chef

Last week, in front of 4 million television viewers and a studio audience, Chef Jamie Oliver killed a chicken according to the UK's humane slaughter standards.

During his shows he suffocated a clutch of male chicks according to standard egg industry procedure, in a chamber of carbon dioxide; stuffed birds into the crowded, filthy “battery” cages that house 95 percent of the country’s chickens, and showed a computer-altered baby picture of himself, grossly engorged to represent the rapid growth of a baby chick on a factory farm.

Sharing information about the inherent cruelty of raising animals for food and of the benefits of a plant-based diet would help people make informed, compassionate decisions.
