According to a new poll by Angus Reid,
95% of Canadians are familiar
with plant-based meat products.
But it’s the younger generations,
those between 18 and 34,
who really believe in the power of plants.
– Would you like to try a
burger made with plants?
– Plants?
– It’s delicious.
And I’m a kid, so if I like it.
– Mmm!
– 70% say the plant-based
movement isn’t going anywhere,
especially when it comes to vegan meat.
Out of all Canadian meat eaters,
22% said they would like
to reduce their intake.
Between the ages of 18 and 34,
this percentage rises to 39%.
“There appears to be a
considerable generational divide,”
says Angus Reid.
Canada isn’t alone.
Around the world, young
people’s attitudes toward food
are shifting.
In the US, a 2018 study revealed
that nearly 80% Millennials
regularly eat vegan meat.
In Sweden, 30% of Millennials
are eating more plant-based foods
to reduce their carbon footprint.
In the UK, 66% of Millennials and Gen-Zers
believe the vegan movement
is set to keep growing.
Vegan Game of Thrones star Jerome Flynn
appears in a new animal rights documentary
called “Hogwood: A Modern Horror Story.”
Produced by British
animal rights group Viva!,
the film looked at common
practices of factory farms.
It draws heavily from a recent campaign
against an industrial pig
farm Hogwood in Warwickshire.
The expose shows farm workers
striking pigs with metal riding crops
and leaving dead animals in piles to rot.
The National Farmers’ Union’s
assurance scheme Red Tractor
has now suspended the farm’s certificate.
Tesco, the UK’s largest supermarket chain,
cut ties with the farm as
a result of the footage.
– This is the film the meat industry
doesn’t want you to see.
– [Announcer] “After seeing
the horrendous conditions
“and animal abuse that is
happening behind Hogwood’s walls,
“I had to do something,” Flynn said.
“The pigs of Hogwood
aren’t just meat products.
“They are sensitive, emotionally
aware beings just like us
“and they deserve better than this.”
Viva! founder and
director Juliet Gellatley
hopes the documentary will raise awareness
about what goes on in the meat industry.
“Each day, consumers are being lied to.”
– The fact that giant
corporations put their names to it
and pretend that it’s okay,
somebody has to go in and show the truth.
People have a right to know
where their food’s coming from.
– [Announcer] “Through clever marketing
“and misleading packaging,
“we are constantly reassured
“that we have some of the
highest welfare standards
“in the world,” she said.
“This simply isn’t true.”

Pornhub joins the fight

Penn Jillette recently
appeared on a podcast episode
of the Joe Rogan Experience.
He told the host that
while he originally gave up
animal products for his health,
he is now also a vegan
for ethical reasons.
He explained that he was
very clear in his book
that he was not ditching meat and dairy
for animal welfare reasons.
– I became plant-based
vegan for health reasons.
And I wrote in my book,
I wrote a lot of stuff about,
I am an unethical vegan.
I’m not doing this for any sort of animal,
any sort of animal, lack
of animal cruelty, nothing.
Strictly health.
– [Announcer] “Presto!: How I
Made Over 100 Pounds Disappear
“and Other Magical Tales”
was published in 2016.
It has since inspired
other stars to go vegan,
including filmmaker Kevin Smith.
But shortly after the book was released,
Jillette began to feel
empathy for animals.
And he says it all has to
do with his gut microbiota.
– And this has happened to
a lot of friends of mine,
who changed that.
After whatever it takes,
people are guessing like,
three months, four months
of no animal products,
those little critters eating
(bleeps) in your guts die.
They like the meat stuff,
and they’re not giving that feedback loop.
And I just found a real emotional change.
Where all of a sudden I went,
“I don’t want to be a part
of that, of the suffering.”
– [Announcer] 102 countries
have voted to protect
sharks and rays.
The proposal passed at the
Convention on International
Trade in Endangered Species,
and it will strengthen protections
for 18 threatened species,
some of which are hunted for
their meat and their fins.
Protected species include
mako sharks and rhino rays.
The former has nearly
disappeared completely
from the Mediterranean Ocean.
– [News Announcer] Known
as the cheetah of the ocean
for its speed,
the species was recently
listed as endangered
after a huge decrease in population.
The shark is still fished for
food in both the US and Japan.
– [Announcer] Numbers are
also falling in the Atlantic,
Northern Pacific, and Indian Oceans.
The latter is the most
threatened family of marine fish.
Ali Hood is the Director of
Conservation at Shark Trust.
She told the BBC, “Mako are highly valued
“for their meat and fins.
“Decades of unrestricted overfishing,
“particularly on the high seas,
“has led to significant
population declines.”
She said the proposal is critical
for ensuring that international trade
is held to sustainable levels,
prompting urgently needed catch limits
and improving traceability.
The largest porn site
in the world, Pornhub,
has joined the fight
against plastic pollution.
That’s right.
Opening the incognito tab on
your browser late at night
is now also a chance to
help clean up the oceans.
“The Dirtiest Porn Ever” features Leolulu,
one of the website’s top
amateur outdoor couples,
having sex on “one of
the most polluted beaches
“in the world,” according to the trailer.
Plastic pollution obscures the couple
as they’re doing the deed.
A cleaning crew clears
trash throughout the film
so there’s no missing the
final throes of passion
for the planet.
“Ocean pollution has grown
to become one of the most
“significant global
issues of our lifetime,”
says Pornhub vice president Cory Price,
“And it’s only getting worse.
“That’s why it’s imperative
that we use our platform
“to raise awareness and inspire change,
“not just for the time being
but for generations to come.
“We’re dirty here at Pornhub,
“but that doesn’t mean
our beaches need to be.”
Pornhub made “The Dirtiest Porn Ever”
in collaboration with Ocean Polymers,
a nonprofit that aims to
clean up the waterways.
It will do that with
OP1, a 60-meter tanker
equipped with the technology
to collect and process trash.
The adult film website
will make a donation
to Ocean Polymers for each view.
It isn’t the site’s first
environmentally-focused campaign.
The site launched another
campaign this year
called BeeSexual,
complete with voiceovers from
adult entertainment stars.
– [Male Announcer] Dante Colle.
– Hello.
I am Lars, I give you sweetest massage.
– [Daisy] Hi, Lars.
I’m Daisy.
– [Male Announcer] Domino Presley.
– That’s just a little extra
something between the legs.
Wanna see how it works?
– [Announcer] The new video channel
is rife with bee porn videos.
For every view of bee porn,
Pornhub donates to bee
protecting organizations,
like Operation Honeybee
and The Center for Honeybee Research.
Coming up.
Presidential candidates
Andrew Yang and Kamala Harris
say meat is destroying the planet.
Kroger, the biggest grocery
store chain in the US,
is launching dedicated
vegan meat sections.
60 stores across Denver,
Indiana, and Illinois
will introduce three-foot
sections of vegan meat
sold next to the real thing.
According to the grocery store,
the trial is to see how
well vegan meat sells
when merchandised next
to traditional meat.
Research shows that the
majority of customers
who buy vegan meat are actually omnivores.
“We are confident that
this test will demonstrate
“that plant-based meat sales
will increase even more
“when consumers have
easier access to them,”
said Julie Emmett, senior
director of retail partnerships
for the Plant Based Foods Association.
The trade organization,
which represents 160 vegan food brands,
teamed up with Kroger for the launch.
Beyond Meat became the first vegan brand
to sell its products next to meat
with the launch of the
Beyond Burger in 2016.
The burger outsold beef in some stores.
IKEA is removing single-use
plastic from its cafes.
The global furniture store
began phasing out disposable plastics,
replacing them with plastic-free
alternatives this month.
It has introduced wooden
cutlery, cups, bowls,
plates, and paper straws.
– [Announcer] Made from
materials from renewable sources.
(quirky music)
A range that is much more
in tune with Mother Nature.
– [Announcer] To-go coffee
cups, typically lined
with a fossil fuel-based waterproof seal,
now feature a sugar cane coating.
The store sourced all of its materials
from sustainable suppliers,
and all paper going
forward will be certified
by the Forest Stewardship Council.
The move is part of IKEA’s goal
of eliminating all
single-use plastic by 2020.
The People and Planet Positive
sustainability strategy
adds the target of using only recycled
or renewable raw materials by 2030.
American DJ and producer
Diplo recenlty attended
the Los Angeles premiere
of the documentary
“The Game Changers”.
He shared clips of the film
on his Instagram Stories,
telling his fans to “be vegan.”
“The Game Changers” is the
highly-anticipated documentary
executive produced by
director James Cameron
and directed by Academy
Award-winner Louis Psihoyos.
Executive producers also include
Formula 1 race car driver Lewis Hamilton,
action stars Arnold
Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan,
and tennis legend Novak Djokovic.
Diplo shared clips from
a segment of the film
that highlights the benefits
to erectile function
on a plant-based diet.
Athletes appear with a physician
who monitored the strength of
their erections while asleep,
pointing to notable improvements
when abstaining from meat.
“I’d love to put Viagra out of business,
“just by spreading the word
on plant-based eating,”
Cameron said last April.
Democratic presidential
candidates Andrew Yang
and Kamala Harris believe
Americans need to cut down
on their meat consumption
for the environment.
They shared their views
during CNN’s town hall
on the climate crisis.
Harris said that although she does enjoy
the occasional cheeseburger,
the US government needs to
create incentives for Americans
to make more environmentally
friendly decisions
with their food.
– But there also has to be what we do
in terms of creating incentives
that we will eat in a healthy way,
that we will encourage moderation,
and that we will be
educated about the effect
of our eating habits on our environment.
– [Announcer] Harris has released
a $100 trillion climate plan.
She aims to make the US a
carbon neutral economy by 2045.
The plan, which she says is
about putting people first,
centers on carbon-neutral electricity
and zero-emission transportation.
Yang agrees with Harris.
He says that going vegetarian
is good for the environment,
and for overall health.
– It’s good for the environment,
it’s good for your health
if you eat less meat.
Certainly, meat is an
extraordinarily expensive
thing to produce from an environmental
sustainability point of view.
So, I think it would be healthy
on both an individual and societal level
for us to move in that direction.
– [Announcer] Yang supports
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.
He also proposes a
constitutional amendment
to make it the government’s responsibility
to safeguard and protect our environment
for future generations.
That’s it for today.

60 thoughts on “Joe Rogan Gets SCHOOLED On Vegan Ethics | Vegan News | LIVEKINDLY

  1. joe rogan perfectly understands vegans and the benefits behind it, hes just in major denial because he loves the taste of meat and thinks its manly 😐

  2. I know this is controversial, but feel it's worth mentioning, I wonder how Penn Gillete feels about medicine and vaccines in relation to animal testing and ingredients? He did a BS video a while back about herd immunity

  3. You KNOW shit's bad when porn companies are like, " naw man. We gotta do something" Still gonna watch some things to support.

  4. I think Penn's bacteria theory makes sense. I would be interested in seeing that tested through science. It could be gut bacteria that leads humans to be making those meats additive choices.

  5. One of the biggest factors in how I'll be voting is their stance of animal rights & climate change. We simply have to have someone in the White House with plans for change.

  6. As much as I agree with the Democratic views on moving towards an ethical way of life. I do not agree with living a socialist Lifestyle in the USA.

  7. Porn Hub??? I spewed my tea all over my desk and thought I must have heard wrong 😂😂😂 well, I hope their “customers” will cop on and start supporting the efforts to save our planet. Wherever support comes from… who cares 😉 As long as we get there (pun intended 😂)..

  8. To be honest Kamala Harris is bought and paid for by corporate interests, don’t trust her to follow through on her opinions regarding animal agriculture if she becomes president. Just sain’!

  9. Nice that the non-vegans thought Americans should decrease meat consumption. The vegan, Booker, said no one should go vegan like him. As a vegan (8+ years), I am patient, and just hope that the USDA, will finally stop promoting animal agriculture. Maybe we'll get our recommended diet to look like Canada's (great work, Canada)! Compassion is invincible!

  10. Penn Jillette really surprised me, after the episode of "Penn and Teller" bashing PETA and all. Now he's an ethical vegan? Very cool. I guess anyone can evolve and change!

  11. I am Happy That Meat eaters are buying beyond meat burgers and we should clean up the ocean or else by 2050 it’s going to be too late.

  12. Well done, I hope people get more coherent with the awakening of the senses and the empathy and light and easy information on topics of relevance that have truth in them and start changing and becoming better, we all have to keep improving and helping improve the planet and society, no matter how many insensitive people prefers destruction, oblivion, selfishness, lies, contradiction, ignorance, and specially human cruelty over animals and everything. I have hopes, but it has to get onto more lives so we can help more animals, more life, more planet, more wellbeing, more illumination, happier existence for animals and humans, and avoid the terrible landscape that it will be if we don't change the cruelty and discrimination of our society for other forms of life and their personal living spaces and habitats. Hope people develop more their hearts and they get listened by their minds so we can live in a better world and make the necessary changes to not end up in a worse disaster just because stupid people think that their money and control over others as well as keeping things gagged for the fear of a better existence will be the only necessary things to save their days, when in fact, if we don't improve, nobody will be able to buy their salvation from catastrophic planet situation. Cutting down eating animals or from them is good for the process to end up the cruelty that just will bring more suffering, but it is important that someday not far away everybody gets aware that suffering of animals, their exploitation and mistreatment, slaughter and objectifying is not a synonym of healthy people or a healthy world or a healthy mentality, or a healthy economy, no matter how much many people try to get a profit or bad habit because they lack awareness and vision of consequences of their wrong actions that damage innocent animals, and the future of the planet. We need more coherence on society's mentality and way of living, nobody would like to be in the place of the animals that get mistreated, tortured, hunted, exploited, encaged, enslaved, slaughtered, skinned, mutilated, discriminated, misunderstood, poisoned with chemical trials or limited by the destruction of their living habitats. An unjust world is not how it is supposed to be, it is a painful defect, and we have to change it as much as we can for a peaceful world where innocents are not attacked or made suffered. It's great that people see their personal health through a vegan change in their diets, but let's see at the animals and be more empathetic, and say will I like to be them in the situation that humans are doing? or will I do my best to defend them if I can feel love for those that don't deserve an ugly life caused by human cruel selfishness? EK

  13. Please do a video on the ONLY presidential candidate who is ACTUALLY vegan and who ACTUALLY wants to stand by his morals and beliefs:

    #CliftonRoberts 🗳

  14. We live in a world where the terrorist group Al Shabaab and Pornhub care about plastic pollution. But The President… Donald Trump keeps rolling back environmental laws. Smh.

  15. Lol wow. Animals were put on this world for us to eat. Vegan people are the real ones in denial. Vegans dont get the nutrients their body really needs, that's why most of them look sickly. Honestly I think it's just a fad that people do because they think that it makes them better than non vegan people. There is nothing better then biting into a juicy bloody steak and ripping it with your teeth. Mmmhh and there is nothing better for you either. Our bodies were built for eating meat. Eventually the vegan trend will die out. Probably because most of the vegans will die before they are 60 due to poor diets.

  16. And yes, it’s true. Cut out ALL animal „products“ and after 3-4 months something will happen that isn’t just physical.
    Happened to me too. Empathy for our fellow earthlings grows and you see them with different eyes.

  17. Sorry, I was going to share this because of a couple of items but that Pornhub segment was unnecessary the way it was featured. It was a cheap shot. Oh, and, don't decieve yourself into thinking that people who watch porn have anything to do with environmentalism on their minds when viewing it. Puhlease! Fortunately I didn't have my kids watching with me since I'm trying to get them more inline with veganism.
