Why go Vegan? Well besides your health how about the environment… the animals… the people. The Vegan Society points out a well plan vegan plant base meal is healthy eating and contains all the nutrients our bodies need.
(Patrik Baboumian world’s strongest vegan, Woody Harrelson, Ellen DeGeneres, Mac Danzig American mixed martial art champion, some of the largest and strongest animal are plant eating animals.)
Top dietetic association realize that healthy eating is fitting for all ages of life and research has relate vegan diets to lower blood pressure and cholesterol, and lower rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.
Becoming Vegan gives you the chance to become more knowledgeable about cooking, nutrition and a better diet. Options like whole grains, fruit, nuts, seeds and vegetables, fill with helpful dietary fibre, minerals and vitamins allowing you to get nutrients from plant base food and allow you to learn and understand more about cooking, nutrition and refining your diet.
My two nieces both name Karen are both vegans. Karen R. has been a vegan from she was a teen. Looking at her you would never guess her age. Her exemplary health I say relates directly to her eating habits of being a vegan. Karen M came to being vegan protesting the exploitation of animals. This has translated to better health for Karen M today, its now more than just the animals.
I have discovered that animal food has lost it taste. My taste bud is tasting the antibiotics and chemicals being feed the animals to fatten them up, I live in a desert area with some large feeding companies in the area, I’m always wondering what the hell are they feeding those cow out here in the desert. What I found out will turn your stomach. I saw an episode of “Dirty Jobs” that further convince me to consider going Vegan.
If you want to have an impact on the environment avoid all animal products. Meat and other animal products have a heavy impact on the environment such as water and crops needed to feed the animal including transportation procedures involved from the farm to the dinner table. It is said that in Brazil alone some 5 million acres of land is used to grow soya beans for animal feed in Europe alone. The use of the land in this manner contributes to world malnutrition causing impoverish areas to grow animal crops, instead of food for themselves. If you think about it a considerable smaller quantity of crop and water is needed to sustain a vegan diet. The large amount of grain needed for meat production is a notable contributor to species extinction, habitat loss and the biggie deforestation and water consumption. Going vegan can be a very effective way to reduce the impact on the environment.
