Going vegan has always been a rather absurd choice for many people in the U.S., as evident by the incredibly small number of people who actually follow vegan diets. Only 0.5 percent Americans are vegan, which amounts to about 1 million in total. We believe that going vegan doesn’t necessarily have to be a bad choice for a number of reasons.
First of all, the long-term health benefits of cutting disease-accelerating and artery-clogging animal products from your life are numerous. You actually don’t need to consume animal products to remain healthy, it’s all about the choices you make when eating. If you partake in a vegan diet you will greatly aid environmental protection and you will actively fight industrialized animal farming and the overall horrific treatment of animals in factory farms. Both in logical and in moral terms, aiding the animals who are subjects of monstrous treatments is a good course of action.
Also, don’t think that vegan food tastes bad – it’s all about how you prepare it. And don’t forget that a lot of companies are making meat and dairy product alternatives that taste just like the real thing, they are much healthier and no animals are harmed in the process of making them.
