why am i vegan?
the better question is why aren't you?
why aren't you bothered by the fact that billions of land animals are slaughtered every year for food?
why don't you care that baby calves are being torn from their mothers so that you can drink milk?
why doesn't it matter to you that animal agriculture is responsible for 91% of the amazon rainforest's destruction?
why are you ambivalent about the fact that animal agriculture produces the largest human-created amount of nitrous oxide gas, a gas more destructive than carbon dioxide?
why aren't you worried about the fact that processed meat is considered a class 1 carcinogen (in the same class as tobacco & asbestos) and the fact that red meat is a class 2 carcinogen?
why aren't you concerned about the links between meat & dairy consumption and type 2 diabetes, heart disease, colon cancer, and many other health conditions?
why do you prioritize your taste buds over the lives of innocent animals, your health, and the fate of our planet?
i am vegan because i care about these things, and you should too.
