9 Things Vegans Are Tired of Hearing, Starring Natalie Portman

14447 ratings | 389668 views
Natalie Portman has been a constant fixture in some of our all-time favorite films, but not only is she a badass, Oscar-winning actress, she's also an animals rights and environmental activist. Now, she's bringing her voice to another issue close to her heart with Eating Animals, a new documentary produced and narrated by Natalie, exploring the "environmental, economic, and public health consequences of factory farming." While the new eye-opening doc explores how to be an ethical meat eater, Natalie herself is a vegan. So when she stopped by POPSUGAR New York in celebration of the new documentary, we had her debunk some common myths about vegans! POPSUGAR empowers you to live your happiest, fullest life.

Unmmm that humans have been eating meat since the beginning of time? No, it was after the flood that they began eating meat. Adam and Eve only ate fruits, veggies, and grains. Read the Bible!

She is a "vegan" that collab with Dior (tests on animals) and more tested on animals brands and decided to eat eggs and milk being pregnant "cause the cravings" (nothing sanitary at all 'cause there is NOT any patology , ANY, and etc that needs animal products and sub-products) and she still named herself as a vegan while doing things like this. Yeah, totally a vegan. Aha. In adittion, I didn´t see any scientific information in this video to explain the validity of veganism. (I speak as a sanitary person and a vegan since years and years ago).

If plants feel pain, why do people cut the branches of trees and the trees keep growing and they even grow better then before? The fascinating thing is the all people come up with exactly the same questions! That shows how conditioned they all are from society.
Another example of vegans being way too nice. Fuck you and your bullshit bbq, you shouldn't get to make decisions for yourself when your "decisions" involve slitting the throats of innocent beings.
fuuuuck that!!! If you're an informed vegan your kid shouldn't get to decide because they don't have the mind space to see and hear the truth before they've been hooked by the system. That's horrible advice. Do your kids get to decide if they wanna shoot heroine or smoke?

Plants DO feel ! They have a very complex structure of nerves and are highly intelligent and communicate with other plants !!! So you should inform better !!!!!!!!!!!

"what if you were stranded on an island and the only thing there was to eat was an animal" well... in order for that animal to be there, there would also have to be vegetables for that animal to eat. unless... your on an island with a tiger... but then again, in order for a tiger to be there it to eat animals that eats plants.

How about the angry meat eaters ? "No, no , no. ,meat , dairy ,fish eggs are perfectly healthy. We were meant to eat them to stay healthy" Yikes. Or the " Every vegan I've seen looks ill and pasty white" LOL . I then ask them how many vegans they know. They typically can't answer that. Lots of really naive opinions when it comes to veganism. Thats a shame.

In any logic, if everyone turned vegan it would be just as bad as it is now if not worse. There has to be balance in the world or we will mess up the food chain and the environment in the process.

There are actually studies that show plants do in fact feel pain. They show it by methods of a distress call. For instance releasing gases(that smell of fresh cut grass) or sound waives to faint for the human ear, yes they are actually screaming. Plus they can even hear them selfies being eaten , they trigger defenses. They also show intelligence, such as adapting to their environment and communication with one another. Yes they are living and we eat them anyway. I would also like to point out that there are around 1000 species of carnivorous(meat eaters) plants that also feed on intelligent life. So Pretty much both sides of the argument cancel each other out. But really just like she said let people choose for themselves and live the way they want. People are Omnivores after all. (that means we can eat both plants and animals). Also no mater what you choose to eat, get it locally sourced from your farmers market/butcher. (the factory farm argument also goes both ways).

Uggghhh I am so tired of people saying that what you eat is a choice. We are all free individuals. No no no!!! We are not free to eat another animal and decide their fate. We are not free to kill another breathing living animal to be our food. Who do we think we are? Eating meat has severe consequences not only for yourself but for the climate of our planet. So no we are not free to decide what we eat

Plants react to stimuli but so does this phone I'm holding. Apparently trees are connected to each other somehow but I'm not sure. Either way, snap a carrot in half then slit a cows throat...which was easier? I thought so.

If only other vegans were so open-minded as Natalie. I've read comments from vegans elsewhere who say they will literally not date, be friends with, or socialise with any non-vegan. Their only interactions with non-vegans comes from harrassing them about not being vegan.

Greetings dear person, please take a moment to read this important message: Falun Dafa (or Falun Gong) is a spiritual cultivation practice for mind and body that is widely spreading in the world, it is based on the principles of the Universe: 真 Truthfulness 善 Compassion 忍 Forbearance It includes gentle exercises and meditation. It helped millions of people to regain health, peace of mind and obtain spiritual fulfillment. Since 1999 this peaceful practice has been brutally persecuted by the CCP in Mainland China. People are being killed, tortured, put into labor camps and have organs harvested from live people, simply because of their belief. Millions Falun Gong practitioners have died from torture at the hands of CCP in the past 17 years. More than 100 million people around the world practice Falun Gong. People ask how can they help; Just spreading awareness is a big help. Let your family and friends know about the persecution. Many people invest money in China without being aware what it is used for. Many products that are coming from China are made by prisoners in the most pitiable conditions.

LogicalOne (1 month ago)
You'd be surprised to know that most meats contain less proteins concentrations than plants out there. People think that meat is high rich in protein while that might be true to some extent actually plants contain more protein per gram. Also Meat takes a long time to digest, which makes it an inefficient food source, early humans at meat but it's scientifically proven that the development of our current brain is the byproduct of cooking. Cooking changes and breaks down the proteins and fibers such that our stomach can easily break them down and digest them, This means that we don't have to spend resources/calories on digestion like many animals still do today. The resources/calories are more available to our body and especially our brain. That's how we humans have developed ourselves past other animals. Next time you eat raw/medium cooked/rare think about that it's literally a waste of your time., and you're not getting any smarter. Meat also contains less calories per gram than plant based food out there, which makes even more inefficient food resource.
Marujita Díaz (1 month ago)
The argument that plants are fair game simply because they don't supposedly feel pain is idiotic. Suppose that there were a drug that blocked pain entirely (the perfect painkiller). Would it be already OK to kill people (or other animals) if you first administered them such drug? And the same goes for suffering. It wouldn't be OK to indiscriminately kill humans or other animals even if you found a way to kill them without causing them any suffering. So the value of a human life or other animals' lives isn't their capacity for feeling pain or suffering but something else. It's a more existential kind of thing: the recognition that they are owners of their own destiny. Or as Colonel Greene would metaphorically put it: “It is to see the Blazing Star and . . . be permitted to follow it.”

I eat everything. Vegetables, Fruits, Meat, I don't ashemed myself for it. Sometimes I feel, vegans who are vegans for a long time, think that on my plate only bloody meat chunks, but no, sometimes there is no meat, sometimes there is meat and veggies etc.

there are certain foods that are manufactured with certain vitamins inside of them or you can take a supplement. Some of the products that vegans don't consume get their vitamins the same way.

Ceza (1 month ago)
not gong to lie all the smiles around 'all free individuals, you do you! eat what you want to eat, vegans do their own style, we aren't pushy like you think! it's your personal choice to eat meat'. I understand this is trying to emphasise that vegans eat their own way and will not 'guilt trip' you into changing at any second possible, shying away from the 'militant' stereotype. but nat, of course this is not about judgement of others, we do not feel angry towards individuals still using animal products. but more so, the lack of education that is aiding individuals to connect to the consequences of their actions so they can then thus decide if they want to continue with eating animal products. yes we want to live in harmony with others beings, people,- as vegans we are peaceful. but we want to help animals! this can only help through change, it's not about respect towards others choices that result in oppression (of course this is not in anyway about disrespecting the individual that is using animal products to them we feel nothing but love). but the rest of the video has some interesting questions, good start x

Rachel Celeste (1 month ago)
Very cute, and I'm so glad amazing role models like her speak about veganism. It IS the future. I just have to add that as a vegan I DO care about that others eat meat, diary, wear leather, and so on. It's never a personal choice, when someone has to be a slave their whole life or die just for that. I could never date someone who was not at least open to the idea of becoming a vegan. :)
Agree upon plants. They don’t have nervous system, guys

I don't hate vegans, but these people who impose veganism on other people makes me angry. Animals eats other animals and human is no different (the same justification vegans use as to why we can't kill other animal as we are one). It's just nature happening. We all are part of the food chain that keeps the balance. Is biology wrong now.

Actual vegans dont care about what you eat but who you eat. We dont need to eat sentient beings to survive or be healthy. #ChooseLove #GoVegan
Leilani Puerto (1 month ago)
Those links just prove to me that you dont even know what a vegan really is. Most people dont. Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose. Its not about perfection. https://www.vegansociety.com/go-vegan/definition-veganism

Some of us aren't interested in the so-called 'rights' of farm animals. Also, take the test: are you truly vegan? Do you use any of these products? http://huntergatherer.com/there-is-no-such-thing-as-a-vegan/ and http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1217794/From-bullets-bread-beer-tambourines-toothpaste--plus-180-things-pig.html

I’ve never liked meat since I was a child. It just doesn’t taste like anything if you don’t add seasoning, sauces etc. whilst you can pick a tomato from a garden and it has its taste, regardless of how you cook it. I don’t get why people have a problem with someone not eating meat.. I hate fries to, it tastes like salty napkin to me and people get triggered even for that. Why so much anger is beyond me..

Tired of hearing from lazy vegans that it's enough to skip meat once in a while. Why are you encouraging people to kinda sorta sometimes go vegan? Vegan or don't vegan, but don't encourage people to half ass a vegan lifestyle.
