Hey, if we're changing the meat industry, why not change every industry to fit my set of morals.
By the same logic you would have to screw over millions of workers world wide, sure it might only be in the short term but tell that to them when they can't pay for their power.
To illustrate my point I will list SOME of the uses of the common cow.
From the top!
Brain: Anti-aging cream, Medicines
Hooves/Horns: Adhesives, plastics, pet food, plant food, photo film, shampoo and conditioner, lamination, wallpaper, plywood
Blood: Posta, imitation eggs, cake mixes, dyes and inks, adhesives, minerals, medicines, lab research materials
Bones: Refined sugar, charcoal, fertilizer, glass
Internal organs: Instrumental strings, tennis racquet string, hormones, enzymes, vitamins and other medical materials
Milk: Adhesives, plastics, cosmetics, medicines
Hair: air filters, brushes, felt, insulation, plaster, textiles
Skin: Gelatin, flavorings, sheetrock, wallpaper, adhesives, medicines, candies and confectionary
Manure: fertilizer, nitrogen, phosphorous
Fat: Chewing gum, candles, detergents, fabric softener, deoderant, shaving cream, perfume, petfood, cosmetics, creams and lotions, crayons, paint, oils and lubraicants, biodiesel, plastics, waterproofing agents, cement, chalk, explosives, fireworks, matches, fertilizer, antifreeze, insulation, linoleum, rubber, textiles, medicines
Jesus my arm is sore.
So unless you have no problem screwing over anyone that works with any of those I think we shouldn't let vegan-ism into industry too much.
