Today I saw the documentary Earthlings. This movie was compelling! If you have never seen how how animals are treated before they are slaughtered, this is the perfect movie to see. This documentary is NOT for the faint of heart or those with a weak stomach! Earthlings will definitely make you look at the food on your plate a little differently!!
Narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, this movie talks about our pets and about all animals. They tell about our food we eat, our clothing we wear, about the damage to the environment due to the massive amounts of animals that are slaughtered and what is done with the carcasses and innards. This movie is extremely graphic, but it really showed the truth behind those packages of meat you eat, how very unsanitary these places are as well as the stress these animals go through and how that will contribute to all the diseases we humans are seeing more and more in our lifetime.
If you love your dog or cat and eat the cow or pig, please give this documentary a chance. I know you will leave this movie with something to think about!!
