There are lot of extremely intelligent people out here who are making the connection. The evidence is piling up. The Avenues of reasons are growing into a city expanding into a world. Walk down any street that you'd like there are so many reasons yet they all intersect into one Global truth. Whether for health reasons, environmental reasons, human famine reasons, the destruction of the Earth reasons, animal rights and lives reasons, nonviolent reasons, compassionate and kindness reasons, any reason you choose to start from will connect you to all the others and there is no escaping it, there is no avoiding it, you can stick your head in the ground to hide yourself from the truth but the rest of your body will soon follow. "Because it tastes good", is just not a good enough excuse or reason to ignore all the other reasons why eating animals is devastating.
