Rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and vegetarian—just a few of the titles that Canadian hip-hop artist k-os can claim. As a platinum-selling artist, k-os is in the unique position to use his voice as a beacon for change and to inspire fans to think critically about issues from social injustice to animal welfare. Check out peta2's new vegetarian testimonial from k-os, and then sign up to take the 30-day vegan challenge! As an artist who's known for actively fighting for social causes, it only makes sense that k-os adheres to a meat-free diet. In the U.S. alone, more than 55 million animals are slaughtered for food every day. Prior to slaughter, these animals endure immense suffering on factory farms, where they are denied everything that is natural and important to them.
Slaughterhouse employees are also some of the most exploited workers in the country. In exchange for inadequate wages, they are subjected to dangerous working conditions and work under constant threat of termination for reporting any wrongdoing. Human Rights Watch has consistently named slaughterhouse employment as one of "the most dangerous factory jobs in America." Going vegan is the best thing that you can do for the environment, your health, and animals. Live with compassion, and pledge to try a vegan diet today!
