Gentle Barn Concerns for our Health

We have had Gentle Barn concerns for our health for the last sixteen years as we have observed people's meat intake increase right along with the rise in heart disease, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and dementia. Watching the obesity rate elevate with the building of every fast food restaurant. Watching people suffer as the profits of the pharmaceutical companies skyrocket.

When we go to a used car dealership we know they are out to make a sale, so we choose carefully, ask questions, and think for ourselves. Why would it be any different with the meat and dairy industries as they too are looking to make a sale. The standard American diet was created because it is good business and because it makes money! It is not there because it is good for us!

Let’s start thinking for ourselves. Let’s help animals, get healthy, and help the sustainability of the planet by adopting a plant-based diet. Did you know that when we adopt a plant-based diet we decrease our risk of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes by 90%!

This article just came out from The World Health Organization just published this press release on the research results declaring that meat is a carcinogen.

Lets turn this thing round and get healthy people!

"Because Animals is a small company with a big mission: to create nutritious pet food without ever harming any animals or the environment. We believe that factory farming has no place in pet nutrition, which is why all of Because Animals' products are made without slaughtering animals. "

"Our ultimate goal is to end the raising and slaughtering of farmed animals to feed our pets.
Until we get to that point, we are so very grateful there are sanctuaries like The Gentle Barn’s three locations to give refuge to abused, tormented, neglected and suffering animals who deserve so much more from the world."

~Dr. Shannon Falconer, CEO, Because Animals
