More than 9 billion land animals are raised and killed for consumption every year, just in the United States. 

 

The more people consume meat, the higher the demand, and the more animals are exploited and slaughtered. 

 

But why do we tend to only eat certain kinds of meat? Why are more of us investing in premium pet products at the same time the chicken slaughter rate is continuing to increase

 

Today’s guest shares some insight into this phenomenon, which she has coined carnism.

 

Dr. Melanie Joy is a Harvard-educated psychologist, author, and vegan advocate behind the concept of carnism. She’s also a TEDx speaker and recipient of the prestigious Ahimsa Award.

 

Tune in to hear Dr. Melanie Joy as she joins Dotsie and Alexandra to discuss how carnism is woven into the very fabric of our society. She explains that it’s both institutionalized and internalized, and held up by our social powerarchy

 

Learn how carnism creates a defense mechanism that distorts perception, disconnects us from empathy, and how you can fight against it.
