is a philosophy and way of living which seeks to exclude
all forms of exploitation of and cruelty to, animals for
food, clothing or any other purpose. Living vegan
provides numerous benefits to: animals and the quality
of their lives, to the ecological integrity of our
environment, and to ourselves, by keeping our bodies
away from the problems associated with consumption of
animals, and animal products.
First off... the
meat and dairy industry causes the deaths of 27 billion
chickens, cows, pigs, and other animals of the industry.
The animals suffer unspeakable cruelties in order to
maximize the profit made by the industry. They live
their lives cut-short, caged, drugged, and mutilated.
The farms are not like the ones most of us learned about
in school, and have been told all of our lives; they are
mechanized slaughter-houses where animal welfare is the
last concern. They are hell on earth!
agriculture takes a devastating toll on the earth. It is
an inefficient way of producing food, which squanders
the vast majority of all grain grown in the U.S. The
dependence of all the grain grown to shove down the
throats of the animals has left the farmlands over-used
causing them to be less productive in following yields.
This forcing the conversion of wilderness lands into
grain fields and farm land. Veganism all but eliminates
these threats and leaves the land for what it was meant
to be used for.
consumption of animal fats and proteins has been linked to heart
disease, colon and breast cancer, diabeties, and many other
diseases. Vegan foods, such as whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and
beans, are low in fat, contain no cholesterol, and are rich in
vitamins and minerals. Plus, vegans get the perfect amount of
protein. Cows' milk has the perfect amounts of fat and protein for
young calves, but far too much for humyns! Eating meat and dairy may
be the surest way to an early grave.
