Five reasons for going Vegan

From the Reasons For Going Vegan Department

With commentary by Dex.

There has never been a better time to embrace the vegan lifestyle. Estimates on how many people are adopting a plant-based, whole-foods diet have ranged from only three to five percent of us even though it has been scientifically proven to prevent type 2 diabetes, eliminate many heart problems and even reverse the onset of some cancers.

Those numbers need to grow massively in the coming years in order to have any hope of saving our planet from complete destruction of oxygen producing plants, our animals must be seen as more than food for humans and left alone.

Good health depends on eating the right foods, but it doesn’t help the bottom line for doctors and hospitals when people are healthy. Don’t expect your doc to smile when you tell him or her you decided to go vegan.

Here are just five of the many reasons why those in the know favor the vegan lifestyle:

Delicious – defined as ‘appealing to one of the bodily senses especially of taste or smell.’ Once the tongue has been deprived of meat it learns to love those greens!

And there is a vegamillion vegan food recipes available online for you to experiment with.

Ethical – ‘Ethics seeks to resolve questions of human morality by defining concepts such as good and evil, right and wrong, virtue, and vice, justice and crime.’

As long as there are humans on this earth there will be questionable ethics demonstrated by them, in politics, in business and in the nutritive benefits for good health. All you have to do is FOLLOW THE MONEY! Your job, Mr Phelps, should you accept this assignment is to spread the word of veganism to MEATHEADS still living in the dark side. An Impossible Mission you say?

Sustainable – An overused and seldom understood concept. UCLA says sustainability ‘is the balance between the environment, equity, and economy.’

Sustainability is like what a certain car maker’s tag line is: ‘the relentless pursuit of perfection,’ that even those genius engineers can’t make the perfect car! Perfection is worth striving for but so far never achieved.

Saves the animals – A steak uneaten, is a cow unkilled.

Helps Preserve the environment – one hectare of forest cleared for animal agriculture is that much less oxygen for us to breathe.

Those 2 grannies in Apt 2A are gasping for air and who do you place the blame on, deforestation or just empty Co2 tanks?
