صادق جان هدایت در جوانی گیاه خوار شد و کتابی در فواید گیاه خواری نیز نوشت. او تا پایان عمر گیاه خوار باقی ماند. بزرگ علوی در این باره می نویسد: یک بار دیدم که در کافه لاله زار یک نان گوشتی را که به زبان روسی بولکی می گفتند، به این قصد که لای آن شیرینی است، گاز زد و ناگهان چشم هایش سرخ شد، عرق به پیشانی اش نشست و داشت قی می کرد
که دستمالی از جیبش بیرون آورد و لقمه نجویده را در آن تف کرد
او همیشه از خوردن گوشت امتناع می کرد و در پاسخ به درخواست دوستانش مبنی بر استفاده از گوشت پاسخ می داد: من این لاشه ها و مردارهای رو به متلاشی شدن را نمی خورم

Adventures in veganism. I tried a few meat and cheese alternatives these past few weeks and I am really impressed. This is not my usual kind of food, I try to eat fresh veggies and healthy carbs, proteins and fats most days, but I also wanted to experiment and these alternatives make transitioning soooo easy. My favorite was #viverasteak as an easy burger alternative and the #greenviefeta. Also finally found a recipe for tofu that helped me enjoy it for the first time adapted a bit from @madeleineolivia 's sweet and sticky tofu recipe. Made it with some chickpea curry and rice. I never had any feeling about my food choices before, but since becoming vegan it does not only taste good but alao feels good to eat. #veganism#veganfood#veganrecipes#veganalternatives#govegan#goveganfortheenvironment#goveganfortheplanet#noreasontoeatmeat
“Many animals were found heavily pregnant, injured, dead on arrival, or in otherwise poor health by inspectors from the Scottish Government’s watchdog agency, Food Standards Scotland (FSS). Reports show that some animals were transported without water, bedding, or enough ventilation to keep them alive.
Animal welfare campaigners called the findings “abhorrent” and said they expose the “shocking reality of live animal transportation”. They are urging for tougher sanctions to prevent further animal abuse.
The Scottish Government said that animal cruelty “cannot be tolerated” and that it expected standards agencies to investigate any welfare breaches. Those found guilty “should face the full consequences of the law”. The Scottish meat industry called the mistreatment of animals “unacceptable” but claimed that Scotland “has the highest standards for animal health and welfare in the world.”” To read the full article, visit theferret.scot @theferret.scot#stopkillinganimals#life#people#compassion#govegan#goveganfortheanimals#goveganfortheplanet#veganism#revolutionary#liberation#history#peace#scotland#farmanimals
Cruelty to animals, also called animal abuse, animal neglect or animal cruelty, is the infliction by omission (animal neglect) or by commission by humans of suffering or harm upon any non-human. More narrowly, it can be the causing of harm or suffering for specific achievement, such as killing animals for food or for their fur; opinions differ about the extent of cruelty associated with a given method of slaughter. Cruelty to animals sometimes encompasses inflicting harm or suffering as an end in itself, defined as zoosadism.
Divergent approaches to laws concerning animal cruelty occur in different jurisdictions throughout the world. For example, some laws govern methods of killing animals for food, clothing, or other products, and other laws concern the keeping of animals for entertainment, education, research, or pets. There are a number of conceptual approaches to the issue of cruelty to animals.
For example, the animal welfare position holds that there is nothing inherently wrong with using animals for human purposes, such as food, clothing, entertainment, fun and research, but that it should be done in a way that minimizes unnecessary pain and suffering, sometimes referred to as "humane" treatment.
Utilitarian advocates argue from the position of costs and benefits and vary in their conclusions as to the allowable treatment of animals. Some utilitarians argue for a weaker approach which is closer to the animal welfare position, whereas others argue for a position that is similar to animal rights. Animal rights theorists criticize these positions, arguing that the words "unnecessary" and "humane" are subject to widely differing interpretations, and that animals have basic rights. They say that the only way to ensure protection for animals is to end their status as property and to ensure that they are never used as commodities.

Over 80,000 people signed a petition organized by the Djurrättsalliansen (Animal Rights Alliance) to protest the use of dogs in the research, and the group also organized a demonstration outside Gothenburg University, where the trial is taking place. The study is investigating how well a new kind of dental implant integrates into human tissue at the university's laboratory for experimental medicine. As part of the trial, six labradors have had a third of their teeth removed and have received the dental implants. At the end of the tests in late February, the dogs will be euthanized so that studies can be carried out on their tissue and blood; these studies cannot be carried out on living animals. "We have been following this experiment at Gothenburg University for a long time and different versions of it have been going on since the mid '90s," Daniel Rolke, one of the organization's spokespeople, told The Local after Swedish daily Aftonbladet first reported that the dogs were to be put down despite the protests. When contacted for comment, a communications officer from Gothenburg University said no representatives of the university were available to speak about its animal testing policy. However, she referred to a statement from Göran Landberg, Deputy Vice-Chancellor for Research, who said in response to the petition: "It's difficult for us to reach a consensus on these issues, but dialogue is important. As we see it, animal experiments are still needed in some kinds of research, to develop new medicines and treatment methods and gain basic knowledge." In Sweden, animal tests can only be carried out with approval from the Swedish Board of Agriculture's Animal Ethics Committee, if the institute organizing the test can prove there is no alternative method. As well as receiving this approval, Gothenburg University also has its own guidelines around care for animals used in tests, and has said it is committed to using as few animals as possible in tests and ensuring their welfare is monitored by qualified vets.
