How the Words We Use Change Our Brains and Potentially Everything Else

How do you refer to the food you eat?
A Vegan Life Solution Episode

In this episode, I explore the language we use toward other beings and ourselves and how it affects how we live and what we eat.
We all grew up hearing slogans like, "where's the beef?" and "got milk?" But what do they really mean? What are they talking about? Beef refers to a dead cow. Milk, in the case of the commercials, refers to a cow's mammary secretions.
I grew up hearing the slogans and words, and I used them too. That created a barrier between me and what I was eating and drinking. It's easier to think of beef as food than it is to think of dead cows as food. How we refer to what we put in and on our bodies matters. Our brains take the information in and either agree with it or turn away from it. The extra bit of distance between our brains and a dead cow or pig makes it a lot easier for many of us to keep eating dead animals.
Idiomatic expressions also play a role here. I detail a few of the ones I've modified to make them cruelty-free.
Think about, "There's more than one way to skin a cat." When you stop and analyze it, it's disgusting and horribly cruel. But what if you can come up with a different saying that means the same but isn't inherently cruel? I came up with, "There's more than one way to bake a cake," (or pie). What other sayings can we change to make them less violent and cruel? I detail a few in the episode. Feel free to adopt them and use them to your heart's content.
