Why We Shouldn’t Eat Pigs

Is it possible to want to eat innocent pigs after flicking through this gallery post?

Pigs are incredible, intelligent, gentle creatures. But most people who decide to put them on there plates every day, haven’t actually met a pig before or had the chance to connect with these beautiful animals. Hopefully, these photos will bring to you one step closer to making the connection.



Pigs love cuddling, snuggling and sleeping nose to nose. They dream, just as humans do.  They enjoy listening to music, playing, exploring and sunbathing.

Newborn piglets learn to run to their mothers voices and respond to their individual names. Mother pigs who are nursing, sing to their piglets.

Pigs are actually very clean animals. If given enough space, they will not soil in the same area that they sleep.

“I know of no other animals [who] are more consistently curious, more willing to explore new experiences, more ready to meet the world with open mouthed enthusiasm. Pigs, I have discovered, are incurable optimists and get a big kick out of just being.” -Biologist and Johannesburg Zoo director Lyall Watson.

By adopting a vegan diet, you can reduce your risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, diabetes, cancer etc. You can also cure allergies and acne as well as improving sleep and boosting energy levels.
Your diet will be more friendly to the environment. You’ll be reducing your water usage as well as helping to preserve habitats and species across the world.
People are becoming more aware about how animal agriculture is unsustainable and often cruel, but it’s been proven that animal products are harmful to human health and the environment. If we don’t begin to make changes in our diets soon, we will be suffering serious consequences in just a few decades.
