The Reasons For Going Vegan
There are many reasons for going vegan, you do it either for the animals, for the environment or for yourselves. Abundance of scientific research found the health and environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, an estimated 70 percent of all diseases, including one-third of all cancers, are related to diet.
A vegetarian diet reduces the risk for chronic degenerative diseases such as obesity, coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and certain types of cancer including colon, breast, prostate, stomach, lung and esophageal cancer. No wonder, even the federal government recommends that we consume most of our calories from grain products, vegetables and fruits.
Why vegetarian isn’t enough?
The suffering caused by the dairy and egg industry is possibly less well publicised than the plight of factory farmed animals. The production of dairy products necessitates the death of countless male calves that are of no use to the dairy farmer, as well as the pre-mature death of cows slaughtered when their milk production decreases. Similarly, in the egg industry, even ‘ethical’ or ‘free range’ eggs involve the killing of the ‘unnecessary’ male chicks when just a day old.
