Why Eggs Are GROSS!!! [A Video For Kids!]


This video is for kids! [but adults can watch too] Today we’re going to talk about why eggs are super GROSS and why they’re really bad for your body and the chickens they come from. You may never look at breakfast the same. For more information, resources & egg-free options see the blog post linked in video.

So does anyone know if all this information is true? I didn't know that "cage-free" meant that chickens were still crammed together.

I personally witnessed a "free range" "cage free" warehouse full of chickens crammed so close together running around on the floor that they were climbing over each other. This was when driving by a Gold N Plump chicken company warehouse on the way to visit relatives a few years ago. It was a horrible image that will always stay with me.

In the end, only kindness matters. - Jewel

An eye-opener. I've heard before that chickens are not good for health because of the chemicals or medicines injected to them. But its my first time to learn that their eggs too. Nice information though. Something to ponder!

Oh wow. And my husband thought he was being helpful by suggesting that we eat cage-free chicken and eggs. I'm glad I held out.

for that you can see my video on humane/free range- it's older but addresses that. there is no legal requirement really for those terms... like "free-range" means they must have "access to the outdoors" but an open tiny door that's screened over so they can *see* outside qualifies.

oh was going to post pics but see they've been done...


You can also see the blog post for the video for links to the studies referenced for the health aspects.

glad you did too! i think the whole "free range" "humane" etc is some of the most dangerous marketing out there because it allows us to keep committing cruelty whilst believing we're doing good.
