While the debate on whether the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is a zoonotic virus that has creeped into the human world from the animal kingdom or a new form of bioterrorism that has unleashed its lethal fangs on its perpetrators and the world en masse can be a discussion for another day, the outbreak has brought us to answer certain fundamental questions of how humans have exploited the resources namely the environment and the animal population available at their disposal.

 We won’t go down the route of how much disservice we’re doing by violating our fellow human rights.

According to the CDC, nearly three out of every four new or emerging diseases in people have been traced back to animals.

Scientists, environmentalists, and conservationists have repeatedly warned about the implications of eating animal products on our health, the planet and the animal population.

So, while social distancing has become a mandate, and we quarantine ourselves to restrain the virus, we’ve compiled a list of nail-biting, hard-hitting and groundbreaking documentaries that will serve as eye-openers to the ones who can’t do without their portion of steak or tub of chicken fingers.

The documentaries on the list cover everything from the brutalities of factory farming, to climate change to the benefits of plant-based lifestyles.

Fortunately, veganism is on the rise globally and this unfortunate event may motivate more people to start living a wholesome, holistic and a natural based lifestyle. Alternatively, this handy list will help you subtly put across your viewpoint to your non-vegan family and friends, educating those with chronic disease, struggling with weight issues, or looking to boost their athletic prowess.

This guide can also help start great conversations on the need for saving the environment or not harming animals and shifting towards a more plant-based diet.

We’ve categorized the list of documentaries based on:

  •  Health
  •  Animal welfare
  • Environment

So, choose the topic closest to your heart.
