Dalai Lama Against Battery Eggs

The Dalai Lama speaks out against factory-farmed eggs.

The Dalai Lama has a released a letter expressing his feelings on the cruelty of factory-farmed eggs. He explains that he was troubled to hear about the cruel practices involved in industrial food production, citing the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) for the information about battery cages. “Turning these defenseless animals into egg-producing machines with no consideration for their welfare whatsoever is a degradation of our own humanity,” he said. “Tibetans have a rich history of protecting the most vulnerable in society and opposing cruelty, which is why it is natural for me to support the change to cage-free eggs.”
