Vegan the only way? What's the "Right"
you may know, vegans are often known for forcing
their beliefs onto other people. This
is something I've never done and I'm not very
fond of. In fact many of my friends are
omnivores, but they eat their veggies as well
a vegan is not for everyone, it's a personal
choice! As much as I'd like my choices to
be respected, I also respect my friend's choices.
still remember clearly... our kindergarten
class had 44 children and I sat in
the back. One day, the teacher was
teaching us directions... left, right,
north, south, etc.
while standing in front of the class
she said: — Show
me the Left side?
my classmates raised their Left hands
while I raised my Right!
I kept my Right arm raised in confusion
and thought... she asked us to
show her the Left side right? But
she didn't specify ours or hers.
she was facing us I looked at her
Left hand and raised my Right hand
indicating her Left side,
not mine! lol
what's the "Right" answer? Well,
I think Left and Right are relative. It really
all depends on your perspective.
endless debates! Who is right?
Go to any vegan blog
and will you see the same following debates:
eat other animals, so why
can't we eat them too?
eating one another in the
wild is not the same as raising
animals in horrific conditions
for their meat.
it's ok for an animal to eat
another animal, why not ok
all animals are meat eaters!
Some animals are vegetarian,
including cows, elephants,
rhinos, horses, giraffes,
gorillas, hippos, rabbits,
our closest relatives, eat
a small amount of meat a day.
and orangutans, our closest
relatives, are vegetarian.
Eating meat is a natural thing.
The only problem perhaps is
that we eat more than our
human anatomy is most similar
to other herbivores and omnivores,
just fruits and vegetables
is dangerous. That is why
vegans usually have to take
fruits, grains and nuts
provide all the nutrition
animal protein is a lot easier
than buying and cooking veggies.
you buy animal products, you're
paying for animals to be tortured
protein is necessary for health
animals and humans, plant-eaters
have the longest lifespans
and healthier lives than
of pounds of fruits and veggies
that could feed the hungry
get thrown away by the food
industry also. They only want
to sell the best looking fruits
people ate more veggies we
would be able to feed millions
of hungry people on the planet.
We could end hunger. It takes
on average 13 pounds of grain
to produce 1 pound of meat.
So it's better for the planet
to eat vegan.
grains and nuts are also living
things. You have to kill to
don't have a voice. If they
were asked if they wanted
to be lunch they would say
going vegan for a week and
you'll see the difference
for yourself. It doesn't feel
right to me. To
be fair: Some
people feel great!
shows that the more meat
we eat, the sicker we get,
including heart disease,
cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis,
etc. To be fair:
shows grass fed meat is
a lot healthier than factory
in nature is very unforgiving
and animals have to do what
they have to do to survive.
have to kill to survive. We
are smarter and have the choice
of growing our own food to
survive. They don't.
have always hunted and killed
animals in the wild to survive.
early ancestors from at
least four million years
ago were almost exclusively
think both sides have some valid points...
we are all different and play a different
role on this planet. Humans are incredibly
adaptable and diverse. Nature has carnivores,
omnivores and herbivores... I think we are
unique in that we can choose.
I will say this... From my perspective,
I see an imbalance of suffering, killing and
violence at this point in our planet's evolution.
With our current farming practices, producing
animal protein is also very destructive to
the planet. Can you imagine all the people
in the developing world one day eating as
much meat as Americans do? And we won't
even talk about the declining fish population!
planet needs a little balance right now. So
from my perspective it makes sense to
be vegan. And for my omnivores out there,
why not add some more vegan meals to your
diet? I promise, you'll still be buff ...
