Enjoy Life More
A vegan diet means you’ll enjoy a longer, healthier and happier life. The killer diseases of the Western World are often caused by diet. In the USA (and I guess the UK is pretty similar) 2/3rds of the population are overweight and 1/3 are obese.
Health systems throughout the first world are overwhelmed by the task of keeping us alive despite record spending.
Much of the world is in food poverty and the situation will only get worse. For me it’s a choice we need to make now, or not too far down the road we’ll all be eating insects!
Get Better Health
Well-planned vegan diets that follow healthy eating guidelines contain all the nutrients that your body needs. A vegan diet can prevent or reverse many life changing diseases including:
Heart Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, High Blood pressure, Stroke, Type 2 diabetes, Prostate, Colon, Breast and other Cancers, Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, Arthritis and Osteoporosis.
Help Animal Welfare
Avoiding animal products is one of the most effective ways you can take a stand against animal cruelty and animal exploitation everywhere.
The suffering in the dairy and egg industry and the plight of factory farmed animals is well publicized. More people than ever before are no longer prepared to accept this situation.
Protect the Environment
A Vegan diet will dramatically lower your carbon footprint. A kilogram of beef is about 30-times more demanding on the environment than a kilogram of plant protein.
The vast amount of grain feed and water needed for meat production is a significant contributor to deforestation, habitat loss and species extinction.
A plant-based diet uses only one third of the land needed to support a meat and dairy diet.
Help People in the Third World
Meat production perpetuates the inequality between the richest and poorest countries in the world. The EU imports 70 per cent of the protein used for its animal feed.
People in developing countries are going hungry. Instead of growing grain for their own people they are growing grain for meat consumption in western countries.
Veganism is the most sustainable option when it comes to feeding the world. The current system is unsustainable, especially if China or India change from their current plant based diets to a western meat based diet.
