Sarah Silverman promises to go vegan
Comedian Sarah Silverman was recently confronted with the gruesome reality of milk consumption in a recent episode of her “Sarah Silverman Podcast”. Silverman, who has been a vegetarian since he was seven, responded to a voicemail a caller left during the podcast explaining that the dairy and meat industries are closely related. “A dairy farm is a meat farm, because when a suckler cow has a boy, they take the boy away and slaughter it [him] for veal. “said the caller, giving Silverman a break.” But, and I’m sure you know that, the mama cow has to spend a year with her [babies]and feed them. But they tear the babies away from the dairy cow because they don’t want to waste the milk for the little baby cow, they need the milk for the people. So there is a traumatic separation between cows. All the cows are screaming and they are depressed and it’s awful. ”
The caller also advises that animal husbandry is harmful to the environment and explains that 10 percent of all greenhouse gases come from cows used for food. Urging Silverman to investigate vegan alternatives to dairy products like Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, he says, “I don’t know what the reason would be to drink milk, eat butter, or eat [dairy] Ice cream. ”
Silverman’s vegan promise
After a series of explosions, the 50-year-old entertainer made the link between consuming dairy products and causing cruelty to animals. “He’s right,” Silverman said repeatedly before explaining that she recently stopped eating eggs. “I needed that. I can’t break this information bell … I’ll try to go vegan.”
The comedian grappled with the transition, explaining that she needed good vegan substitutes for butter, ice cream, and sliced cheese. “They exist,” said Silverman. “I just have to get them and maybe try a few and find the one I like. I have no excuse. I like all of these things. I can easily adjust to all of these things. “Silverman then reiterated their promise to transition to veganism, stating,“ I think you’ve just seen me officially extrapolated and don’t want to be part of it [dairy consumption] no more. And the environment is so real. The cows, it’s just such a giant [carbon] Footprint.”
Shortly after her promise to go vegan, Silverman accepted Instagram to present a dairy-free treat she made with Forager’s vanilla yogurt, grape nut muesli and a vegan oat-based whipped cream. However, the treat wasn’t vegan as it contained honey biscuit wheat germ.
