8 reasons why you should go vegan

Be healthy.

Everybody wants to feel energized and healthy. And who doesn't want to live longer? By going vegan, you are reducing so many health risks such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, strokes, obesity and so many more. Vegans tend to be higher in vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and fiber. Healthy vegan diets are abundant with vitamins B1, C, and E, folic acid, magnesium, and iron. Red meats are very high in cholesterol and eliminating that lowers your cholesterol levels.

Is the way you eat now natural?

The jaws of carnivores and omnivores only move up and down. Humans have no carnivorous or omnivorous instincts whatsoever when we're born. We never had a craving for animals until it was fed to us.

What doesn’t make since to me is why humans drink cow milk. As babies and infants, the only milk we need is from our mothers. Studies have proven that cow milk really isn’t the healthiest for humans and not the best resource for calcium. Not your mom, not your milk.

for the animals!

Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans and this doesn’t even include the animals that live in the oceans. This is a holocaust and its not even recognized. We kill these animals simply because of the taste. We do not need them for survival or health benefits. It’s completely for our selfish needs.

Whats the difference between a dog and a pig?

Why do we call one a friend and one our food? It’s crazy how people are sent to jail for animal abuse while we pay people to abuse the animals we eat. How is this any different? People all of the sudden start caring about animals when they hear about the dog yulin festivals in china and the same thing is happening in our back yards and we don’t bat an eye at that.

Pigs outperform 3-year-old children on cognition tests and are smarter than any domestic animal. Experts have shown that it is easier to train a pig than a dog or cat. Besides that, pigs and cows and chickens feel the same way as a dog does. They are no different and should not be treated the way that they are.

that dead animal looks so good on you!

In the united states a lot of the millions of cows and other animals who are killed for their skin are suffering in the factory farms. They go through extreme crowding and deprivation as well as castration, branding, tail docking, and dehorning. All of this is done without painkillers. At slaughterhouses animals often have their throats cut and some are skinned and dismembered while they are still conscious.

its simply logical.

In this day and age, it is not necessary for us to kill and take from animals. We can get all of our resources so easily from other things such as plants. We do not need animal meat or milk or eggs to sustain our bodies so why do it? Us as humans have to accept the fact that animals should have to rights to live just as we do. They are sentient beings they feel pain and emotions.

vegan make up

A lot of your make-up, shampoos, etc. are tested on animals. The things they do inside the walls of laboratories are illegal outside of them. Tell me why this makes any sence. If anybody saw someone poisoning and burning animals, they would think they were crazy and inhumane. So why do we pay people do this for us?

make the connection

I think our biggest problem is we don’t make the connection from our plates to a living animal. Of course we know that our dinner was once living but we don’t think they felt any pain or cared to live. If we were more informed on how animals are really treated and how they feel I think we might change our minds a little. The things we put in and on our bodies once were a living being and we need to stop the injustice. It’s all in perspective. Start looking from the victims point of view.
