      Could you make a video about milk and dairy products in general concerning milk safety and if humans should avoid drinking milk after a certain age? (it could also involve some information about milk proteins' importance as well as dairy microorganisms' good impact on health). I believe it's commonly known that milk may have some bad effects on your health although I personally disagree.

    if you want your meat killed humanely, do NOT buy halal. in fact, it should have an embargo placed upon it.

    if you want your meat killed brutally, sadistically and cruelly, support halal.

    (coming from an ex-abattoir worker...)

    never had an issue with kosher. because it was kept in specific shops. it wasnt demanded to be placed prominently in every shop due to the wants of a delusional minority. and also, the jews usually had a bit more empathy for their animals than the islamic followers have...

    You guys nailed that topic. For me meat is luxury, not a product for daily meals. I love a good steak or a burger. But I eat it with friends or on the weekend. I dont need sausages, salami etc every day. If we change our daily behaviour we have an great impact on demand and that will change how meat industry works. Nobody is forced to life without meat, but we should use it with more awereness.

    I am an avid watcher of your videos and love this channel, but I have been a food animal veterinarian for many years and this video is plagued with misinformation, with a clear agenda. I have devoted my life to the health and welfare of animals, as have almost all of the farmers I work with. The vast majority of these animals are cared for greatly and even loved. I have seen grown men cry when a cow is sick or injured. We go to great lengths to ensure safety, comfort, and well being of the animals in our care.
