I forced myself to watch the entire thing and became extremely upset, it just justified me being a vegetarian and doing everything I can to help animals. There's a part in this video where they experiment on monkeys, that really got to me. You're right though, human beings are disgusting.

I am now a 57 year old man who until 2 years ago was a committed meat eater, my wife was a veggie & I made fun of her all the time. 2 years ago I had a divine revelation & I gave up meat, I am now a vegan & still I cannot even begin to apologise enough to these poor animals for what I have done. I hang my head in shame as I am not as good an earthling as they are.

I understand how you feel about not being able to apologize enough for what was done in the past. Try to let go of the shame you feel Andy. Fight for Animal rights as much as you can. Spread the word about "Going Vegan" as much as you can as a way to make amends. That is what I am doing fighting for Animal rights (trying to anyway, seems like an uphill battle at the moment) and trying to spread the word about Veganism The Important thing is you changed Andy! Now the rest of Mankind has to. May love and peace be with you Andy.

Don't waste you precious energy on guilt feeling. You came out of the darkness, that all that matters. Moving forward, fight for animals till the end! Blessings heap upon you both <3

I would rather starve to death than have to do some of these jobs. This film has made me more convinced that I really don't like the human race but love animals. We are not here for the longterm so why do we feel we have the right to destroy another soul? sickening

I do wish I knew how to share it on my timeline on facebook, but all that comes up is invitations to friends there, individually. I want to do what I can to spread this, but as I know my own sensitivity, I don't want to encroach my friends' decisions. I want to show them, not force them, nor make them feel that I'm a fanatic, so they just dont care, or that I'm too much, thus they go against it. I know my standpoint, so do my friends, and sometimes that's enough to affect them. ...

All the cruelty on Earth have a devastating effect on many of us and make it so hard to live and stay out of eternal nightmares. And, I would never eat meat, drink milk, eat eggs, wear fur, and so on, well knowing this is not enough. I try, I struggle the ways I can.

I'm sorry I couldn't watch. I am so very much against animal cruelty of any kind. It sickens me to be a part of the inhumane race. Every bit of the reality destroys my faith in mankind. We are out to destroy the world at this rate. God help uall .

There is one important point and issue about vegan-ism/vegetarian-ism that I'd like to mention when those who follow this type of living - what would all the farmers do with their specially bred livestock - the pigs, cows, sheep, chickens etc. If they don't kill them - do they let them run wild - to their detriment? What about the domestic animals that rely on we humans to feed them? Don't think for one minute that we could make them vegans too - that just wouldn't work, nor would it be...

There is one important point and issue about vegan-ism/vegetarian-ism that I'd like to mention when those who follow this type of living - what would all the farmers do with their specially bred livestock - the pigs, cows, sheep, chickens etc. If they don't kill them - do they let them run wild - to their detriment? What about the domestic animals that rely on we humans to feed them? Don't think for one minute that we could make them vegans too - that just wouldn't work, nor would it be healthy for them - a fact that has been proven by veterinary scientists. All the animals breeding would increase their numbers - to what end? Also, what would the tens of thousands of farmers do for a living suddenly if deprived of their occupations? Certainly it would be impracticable to try and make them grow vegetables! I really don't think that people have thought this through properly! The sudden cessation of not using animal products would not only affect the farmers but myriads of others.

We should stop breeding them now, mostly it is artificial breeding and if we live on a plant based diet we use less land to farm it so allowing more space for wild animals. Cats can be vegan with the right supplements. Why is it impractical for farmers to grow plants direct for humans rather than farming animals and growing plants to feel both humans and the animals used as food. You really have not thought it out have you? It would not happen overnight, it would be a gradual change and therefore totally manageable!

Livestock can be phased out over the course of their natural lifespans through neutering/denial of breeding. As an ex. it will only take appr. 25 years before there are no more beef cattle without killing them. Domestic animals such as cats and dogs can be fed via "in vitro meat" also called "lab-grown meat." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lab_grown_meat

I'm an avid anti animal cruelty person, BUT I'm not a vegan or vegetarian by choice. If other people wish to be either, that's entirely their business, so long as they don't try to foist their views on others.

I disagree. Too many people won't come out and tell the truth. If you eat animals you're not really against cruelty. You're only against looking like you're cruel, trying to fool yourself and other people. If you really care about animals you wouldn't contribute to 200 billion+ animals being tortured to death every year.

I watched the first 5 minutes on May 26th, 2011, and have been vegetarian ever since. Very powerful...I hope more people watch it. You can't watch it, and not be affected.

If you are against animal cruelty you have to stop eating them, or else you are only paying lip service Rick!

@ LesleyDove: Okay, but by this statement, you conclude that there is no way to have humane processing of meat (which perhaps is true). But if true (which is the argument of PETA, HSUS and others), then couldn't one make this argument for humans even having companions animals altogether - as there are always possibilities of abuse there, too? So, the real question is, can humane standards be (better) regulated to avoid any abuse? That hasn't worked with companion animals. PETA has even...

So, the real question is, can humane standards be (better) regulated to avoid any abuse? That hasn't worked with companion animals. PETA has even heralded the killing shelters. They openly claim they "do not advocate the right to life for animals." http://www.nathanwinograd.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/postcard_0001.jpg
