What’s better than watching Ellen talk about veganism? Watching Ellen AND Jonathan Safran Foer talk about veganism!!! Duh!
Author Jonathan Safran Foer appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday for the second time to talk about his latest book, Eating Animals, which offers an in depth look at the frightening world of factory farming.
During the interview, Foer says:
“If you were to ask people, ‘Do you think it’s right or wrong to eat animals?’, most people in our world would say, ‘Yes, it’s right.’ If you ask people, ‘Is it right to have a farm system that we know is making our antibiotics less effective?’…nobody wants that. If you say, ‘Is it right to have a farm system that we know, as a rule, is destroying our environment?’…nobody wants that. And nobody, I don’t care how much or how little you care about animals, nobody wants to keep pregnant animals in little cages for the durations of their pregnancies.”
We totally agree! Why is this guy the coolest dude ever!?
