Go VEGAN!

what is a VEGAN? A vegan (pronounced VEE-gun) is someone who, for various reasons, chooses to avoid using or consuming animal products. While vegetarians choose not to use flesh foods, vegans also avoid dairy and eggs, as well as fur, leather, wool, down, and cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.

why VEGAN? Veganism, the natural extension of vegetarianism, is an integral component of a cruelty-free lifestyle. Living vegan provides numerous benefits to animals' lives, to the environment, and to our own health–through a healthy diet and lifestyle.

This is just my opinion... People who eat meat aren't do any cruel things to animals.

Warriors101, it's the fact that you're supporting companies that ARE cruel to animals that often makes omnivores go vegetarian/vegan. That's a reason I'm vegetarian. I don't like the fact that I'm eating something that was most likely treated cruel.

You see, most slaughter houses aren't... good. Most of the time chickens are cooped in cages and sometimes boiled alive. Cows are almost always living in their own feces, and both animals eat food they aren't supposed to-like meat! Yep, cows-eat-meat in those factories a lot of the time. They often lack vet care which means that most of the time omnivores (when eating meat) are eating something that lived in feces, and ate foods they weren't supposed to.

Also being a vegetarian/vegan is healthier (as long as you eat the right foods).

It would be to hard on me and my family for me to go vegan now, but when I'm older I will.

So that's just to clear things up. You may not be hurting the animal, but someone else is (probably). Though there are some factories that treat their animals well, it's just uncommon-rare.

I'm not trying to judge omnivores, I just wanted to make sure you knew about it.

(P.S We don't just not eat flesh foods, we also don't eat the bones either (gelatin is made of boiled bones also found in many gummy foods, Altoids, some gum, etc)

We get our meat from people we know and they make sure there animals are treated and killed well. I hate how mean people are to animals when we kill them. If i did not have a way to get meat that was treated well i probably would not eat it but if i know it has been loved and killed quickly and painlessly no problem.

I'm a vegetarian, and I don't use anything tested on animals except sunscreen because I can't find any that isn't :(

Thank you for explaining that Sunstar,(that may sound sarcastic but its not!!) I will think differently. Just thinking of those poor animals send chills through my body. But I am also a vegetarian

The only meat i eat is fish. Other meats are disgusting and slaughtered in gross ways.

Milk ans non-fertile eggs are okay to eat. In fact, you should eat them. Why? Because with an all plant diet you will not get enough protein. And if you eat animals, which I happen to, you should eat GRASS FED beef. The cows were not fed little corn that basically rips their skin, so they were fed natural food, and were usually kept in an open meadow, as well as being kept inside for the night.
