In Episode #21, I spoke with animal activist James Aspey on the horrors of factory farming and why he gave up meat. An Australian animal activist and plant-based eater, James incredibly took a year-long vow of silence to raise awareness of the animal cruelty that takes place within our food system. He has since become one of the world’s best-known animal activists, having given over 500 free speeches across the globe. James lives and breathes this subject and is well equipped to explain the scale of the issue of animal-product consumption.
In this episode, we talked about James’s childhood and his health journey, particularly a pivotal time of his life that led him to become more health conscious. He shares more about that year-long vow of silence, what that was like, and how he makes money to be able to dedicate his entire life to activism. We talked about the factory farms, what goes on there, and what resources you can check out to educate yourself further. Listen to hear James explain why everyone should consider eliminating or at least reducing animal products from their plate and his solutions for doing so.
