This took a lot longer than I thought it would

Being vegan is hard. But not in the way most people think.

It’s hard because we constantly think about the animals who are suffering, and whose lives are ending. Being vegan is hard because at least for me, my heart hurts constantly.

Eating and living vegan is easy. Constantly being reminded about animals being tortured and murdered is hard. 

I used to eat animals, wear animals, buy animals, pay to see animals imprisoned for my entertainment, and use products tested on animals. Now I don’t. Your choices can always and should always evolve.

It’s never too late to boycott cruelty. Vote with your wallet. 

Ask any person, “why is milk good for you?” and they’ll tell you “it’s good for calcium”. This is a huge myth that has been fuelled by milk lobbyists and the dairy industry, an industry that is worth $70 billion in the U.S. alone. In reality there are a lot of risks associated with dairy consumption. The Harvard nurses health study which followed 85,000 nurses for 12 years found those that consumed animal protein had a higher risk of bone fracture because it has a high sulphur content. A recent Harvard study showed pasteurised milk products from factory farms are linked to causing hormone-dependent cancers because of the dangerously high levels of estrone sulfate, an estrogen compound linked to testicular, prostate, and breast cancers.

So why is milk bad for you? Animal protein is shown to accelerate osteoporosis because of the high level of acid in dairy, this forces the blood to reestablish a proper Ph balance. In order to do this, the body withdraws calcium-phosphate from the bones as a buffer and uses alkaline mineral phosphate to neutralise the acid. Calcium is then excreted through our urine. So it is no big surprise that nations with the highest rate of dairy consumption also have the highest rates of osteoporosis. If you look you will find many scientific studies that show an assortment of detrimental health effects directly linked to milk consumption.

But mainstream health practitioners and established nutrition continue to promote dairy as a rich source of calcium. Which is true, cow’s milk is excellent for calcium nourishment, but each mammal species has their own “designer” milk perfect for their offspring not other mammals. When we drink cow’s milk it creates metabolic disturbances that have detrimental bone health consequences.

Non-dairy sources of calcium are the healthier options! Other ways to keep your bones strong are to reduce sodium intake, eat lots of vegetables, don’t overdo protein, exercise, and get ample amounts of Vitamin D!

I am a very passionate person and one thing I am extremely passionate about is animal rights. Now, I am in no way a perfect human, I only began transitioning into this lifestyle 6 months ago and still have quite a ways to go. I compiled this list out of my own research and decided to share it, I can only hope it will be useful to someone ◕‿◕ I will update it as frequently as possible, but please feel free to edit, ask questions, or educate me and others. Thank you!!!
