What I learnt from Cowspiracy

Its so important to educate ourselves everyday so I watched Cowspiracy the other day. Less cows than I expected!

Now you are ready for Eathlings if you haven't seen it yet! Brace yourself though.

Thank you for the cheat guide! I loved the movie and it was really heartwarming to see the documentary's host evolve as the movie went on. It's hard for me to retain specific facts and information from the movies I watch and books I read but I really want to be able to recall this info when people ask me how veganism helps the environment at all. I'm so tired of hearing people say that if we didn't eat cows they would eat all the grass and take over the land, when I tell them that they are artificially inseminated and bred for consumption it's completely ignored.

Earthlings is amazing and is mostly from an ethical point of view, Forks over Knives is also good and I feel like is more health-based.

I am exactly the same, I forget everything! When people started questioning my vegan ways, I pull it up and they have nothing to say in response!

I might watch Earthlings tonight!

I thought the guy was great and told the story in such an accessible way!

Cowspiracy is great! I just watched it recently and I highly recommend it.

Has anybody on here fact-checked this?
I'm watching it right now and love it so far but have heard from a few people (onmnivores) that they were really moved by it and considering lifestyle changes but then read that the facts were exaggerated. I'd love to be able to argue against that point but can't find any data .

Heyo! Cowspiracy was the film that I watched with my family (who are meat eaters, it's not as awkward as it sounds) and convinced my dad to go vegetarian, which was pretty amazing. I find it interesting how there's a film that focuses on each of the main reasons to go vegetarian/vegan (Forks Over Knives=Health, Conspiracy=Environmental, Earthlings=Ethics), and yet, they seem to all involve ethics, which, to me, is the strongest argument there is when it comes to veg*nism.
