Meat Gets TV Drug Ad
theinformedvegan: Ollie H. Productions have put together a hilarious drug commercial for meat. Since animals on factory farms are fed 35 million pounds of antibiotics a year and are injected with numerous other drugs, it’s only fitting that meat be marketed as an actual drug. The video is a classic spoof of cheesy drug ads with long slow nature shots, generic white guy in corduroy jacket,...

HURRAW! Lip Balms
Say goodbye to dry lips. My lips are very dry and I keep smudging them with toxic petroleum based lip balms. I once thought ”vaseline” was pretty safe since it basically only contained ”one ingredient”, but how wrong could I be.
