I am a raw vegan and truly believe humans were meant to eat fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Animals are creatures like us; they have eyes, can smell, think and have feelings. How would you feel if you knew you were the next meal? Animals were meant to be loved, not eaten. Regardless, they should be treated as you wish to be, humanely. ♥

Ryan, anything that is cooked kills all nutrients including protein. Protein is a fallacy brought on by the meat industry. If you'd research, there are protein in fruits and veggies, all that is needed by us humans. Name me one person that has died or been hospitalized due to the lack of protein? The milk industry is just as contrite. If something is dead, how can it produce life. Fruits and veggies are living when we eat them with seeds to plant for more life. They are full of nutrients....

I've researched this topic thoroughly. Give yourself a 30-day vegan diet and see how you feel and report back as to which of the two diets (eating meat vs a raw vegan/vegan/ vegetarian) made you feel better/healthier. ♥

I worked at Tyson for about 2 years. If you want to boycott Tyson you need to boycott every single chicken and turkey house you drive by everyday. Every company raises their chickens and turkeys the same way... in those long stinky buildings. And do you all realize the local families that would be out of income due to this. The families that have the houses and all the people that work at the plants. If you have such an issue with how chickens are raised get you a chicken coup and raise your...

When it comes time to hack off their heads and pluck their feathers you'll change your minds.

I totally hear what you're saying, Candi, but there are definitely family farms out there that treat their chickens better than Tyson does. It's a little bit more expensive, but I try to buy chicken at the farmers market or Whole Foods because the chickens are raised more humanely and when they are treated well they make for higher quality food, too.

Every animal is a creation of God and should receive love, care and RESPECT - and be able to live in an environment that is suited to their specific needs - away from cruel, thoughtless, greedy, selfish humans. God bless ALL animals! xo xo xo xo xo xo.

I haven't bought Tyson products for more than 10 years, when I learned they employ illegals.

Many illegals have very bad lives and living arrangements. They often owe their Coyotes a huge fee for getting them across, and they take it out on the animals.This has been shown in hidden videos, not sure if it it TYSON or not.

It was mistreatment of chickens by Kentucky Fried Chicken suppliers that led me to stop eating their food years ago!
Lets stop this!

As a vegan, I boycotted these nasty bastards 12 years ago; and when I was still eating meat (unfortunately) I never bought Tyson.

I have boycotted Tyson Foods years ago when I saw a video then of their cruelty. My husband, no thanks to me, is still a meat eater. Sadly, nothing's changed. I Believe many americans don't have the conscience necessary to question the fate of farm animals. We're dealing with a culture of Kill it/wrap it/let's eat! Never mind what took place when the animals were brought in for the killing. Somebody else did the dirty deed for us! I am so glad I became vegan 30 years ago. I just wish...

Originally I stopped purchasing TYSON products was because how the company treated their employees at least here in Wisconsin. I will never support Tyson for all of their inhumane acts. (Have you ever lived on a farm Kelsie Vaile?) I have! Dairy, Pig and grain. I say if you haven't expierienced actual farm life, you aren't getting all the facts from a book. However, thank you for your comments and insight.

Actually yes I have lived on a farm my whole entire life. My facts are not from any books. My facts are from experience working with animals as a young child and all throughout my life and now in college as I am studying Animal Science. In nothing that I commented was I bashing farming in any way possible. I am a huge supporter of animal agriculture. I also support Tyson and everything they do. The only thing that I said that may have been misinterpreted was that yes, some Tyson workers...

The only thing that I said that may have been misinterpreted was that yes, some Tyson workers SOMEWHERE in this country probably mistreat animals at some point. But that is because they are bad people who have yet to be caught doing so. I obviously do not think that this is a good think whatsoever but, like any other illegal things, it sometimes happens.

I'm a vegetarian and have been so since 1984,
and I have no intentions of eating beef, pork,
nor poultry again for as long as I live.

Billy, If you and I can do it , anyone can. The meat industry crumbling would be a dream come true for many animals worldwide. The world would be in utter chaos and crisis, but it may come to that anyway at the rate we are going.
