Why am I vegan?

Ethical Reasons:

  • You shouldn’t eat animals for convenience
  • You shouldn’t take a life because you like how it tastes
  • Farm animals and marine life feel pain and DO NOT WANT TO DIE!
  • You have to artificially inseminate cows/goats so they produce milk
  • Dairy cows get their baby calves stolen from them for veal EVERY YEAR
  • When male chicks are hatched at egg farms they get thrown into a grinder
  • All marine life gets caught in nets including dolphins, sharks and whales
  • This means we are losing vital marine life for “seafood”
  • Why do we love cats and dogs, but eat cows and pigs?

Health Reasons:

  • My energy levels have increased dramatically
  • My skin cleared up almost instantly
  • My digestion has gotten so much better due to eating fibre rich foods
  • There is no need to restrict calories on a HCLF vegan diet
  • Dioxin, one of the most toxic substances  IN THE WORLD is found in dairy products (Freedman and Barnouin, Skinny Bitch)
  • High dairy intakes blocks iron absorption (Robbins, Diet for a New America)
  • You eat all the hormones and pesticides that the animals are fed
  • Meat, dairy and eggs are extremely high in saturated and trans fats
  • You are literally eating DECOMPOSING FLESH
  • Eating chicken or fish is linked to colon cancer (American Journal of Epidemiology)
  • NO FIBRE IN ANIMAL PRODUCTS = CONSTIPATION YUCK
  • Dr Anthony Youn - eggs are almost as bad as smoking: eating 3-4 per week may harden arteries leading to stroke
  • Large eggs contain 210mg of cholesterol (8x more than COW meat)
  • Vegan proteins may reduce the risk of cancer, obesity, and CVD by promoting increased glucagon activity (McCarthy, 1998)
  • Disgusting pus in milk (called somatic cells) -> 180 MILLION somatic cells in an 8oz glass of milk. Pus is a response to an infection e.g. a pimple. YOU ARE DRINKING PIMPLE PUS
  • SO MANY PEOPLE HAVE REVERSED CHRONIC DISEASES WITH A VEGAN DIET
  • Meg Wolff reversed cancer, Robert Dew reversed heart disease, Natala Constantine reversed diabetes (Kathy Freston, Veganist)

Environmental Reasons:

  • The business of raising animals for food is responsible for 18% of global warming (Veganist)
  • Animal agriculture uses 30% of the land surface on the planet (Veganist)
  • It takes 10 times as much fossil fuel to make one calorie of animal proten vs one calorie of plant protein (Veganist)
  • Methane gas from animal agriculture is 25-100 times more damaging than carbon dioxide (Cowspiracy)
  • UN: Animal agriculture is the leading cause of resource consumption and environmental degredation
  • Raising livestock JUST IN THE US uses 34 TRILLION gallons of water (Cowspiracy)
  • This is because the animals you eat, need to eat water intensive grains
  • One McDonalds quarter pounder needs over 660 gallons of water to be produced, this is two months worth of showers.
  • If overfishing doesn’t stop, we will see fishless oceans by 2048 (Cowspiracy).
  • Marine life does not recover quickly, and the nets used are so big they can catch whales, dolphins and other marine life.
  • An acre of rainforest is cleared EVERY SECOND (Cowspiracy)
  • The leading cause of this is to graze animals and grow their feed crops
  • Palm Oil is responsible for 26 million acres being cleared, however, livestock is responsible for 136 million acres being cleared, making it the leading cause.
  • The Amazon rainforest could be GONE in the next ten years.

I'm having a really hard time debating with people when they ask why I'm vegan and I explain it's for the animals, the planet and my health. I just got into a heated discussion with someone who said our bodies have evolved to eat meat and that we have enough water in the world and that we only know of 10% of the ocean so can't say that the ocean will be depleted from over fishing. I feel like no matter how much I educated myself I don't have come backs for a lot of things and it stresses me out.

I think it is very important to be educated as you say and be strong, they will try to bring you down and be ignorant. Also, some people aren’t worth to discuss this with. I tend to feel the vibe and if they seem completely shut then I just feel sorry for them for not being open minded. But I’ve found a great list of reasons why veganism is good;
