Veganism

Animals are not ours to consume. They are living, breathing, feeling creatures who did not volunteer themselves to become another item on your plate!

What is veganism?

A vegan is someone who doesn’t consume any animal derived products such as meat, poultry, seafood, eggs, dairy products or honey. It would also go without saying that vegans don’t wear any clothing made from animals, don’t buy any products that are tested on animals, don’t support any bloodsports and don’t attend any ‘shows’ (e.g. circuses) that use animals.

Many people think that by simply becoming a vegetarian, they are eliminating cruelty from their diet. Unfortunately, this isn’t enough. By drinking milk, not only are you supporting the dairy industry, but the veal industry too. Apart from all the obvious animal-cruelty related reasons to adopt a vegan diet, it is not ethically or morally right to eat or farm another living creature, no matter how big or small their enclosures are. 

What’s needed isn’t bigger cages, its empty ones.

Open your eyes, see the truth. If you continue to buy meat and other animal-derived ‘products’, you are just as responsible for the misery and deaths of these animals as the ‘people’ who murdered them.

Plants have all the protein you need

Diets high in plant protein, such as the vegetarian diet, are linked with many health benefits. Studies suggest vegetarians tend to have lower cholesterol and lower blood pressure levels. They also have a lower risk of stroke, cancer and death from heart disease than non-vegetarians


Broccoli

11.1 grams of protein
per 100 calories


Beef

6.4 grams of protein
per 100 calories

In a large observational study including 448,568 individuals, processed meat was linked to an increased risk of death, with no effect for unprocessed red meat. Another study involving over 34,000 women made similar observations. In this case, processed meat was associated with heart failure

Shockingly, over 
64 billion land animals and
1,000 billion aquatic animals are killed every year.

A matter of Ethics?

No one can challenge the ethical reasons for becoming a vegan, just look at the video Earthlings. How can anyone work in that industry, doing that to animals day after day? Who could live with themselves? If there wasn’t a demand for it, this sadistic industry would cease to exist. By choosing not become a vegan, YOU are as guilty as the ‘farmers’ who raise the animals and the ‘people’ who work in these slaughter houses.

Stop letting yourself be desensitized. Open your eyes to what ‘meat’ really is. What is a burger, a sausage, a steak, a rasher or a drumstick? Don’t let what it is called fool you. This was just a method devised to detach you from the truth. Detach you so much that you now feel nothing as you literally swallow hundreds of lives every year. They were once living beings, with as much a right to live as you and I. There is no excuse, GO VEGAN NOW!

Here are some environmental reasons
to go vegan:

20x

Twenty times more land is required to feed a meat eater than to feed a vegan.

It takes 2,500 gallons of water to produce a pound of meat, but only 25 gallons to produce a pound of wheat.

For every quarter-pound fast food burger made of beef, 55 square feet of land is consumed.

Producing a single hamburger patty uses enough fossil fuel to drive a small car 20 miles and enough water for 17 showers.

A typical pig factory farm generates a quantity of raw waste equal to that of a city of 12,000 people.
