10 reasons to become vegan

The word “vegan” was first used in 1944 by Donald Watson of the Vegan Society of Great Britain, who wrote:

“Veganism is a way of life that seeks to exclude (as far as possible and feasible) all forms of cruelty and exploitation of animals for food, clothing and other purposes.”

Becoming vegan and supporting veganism is not I don’t know how difficult a decision. It is easier to decide to be vegan and become vegan if someone supports and guides you a little at the beginning.

Interestingly, this is a series of decisions. We start accepting animals of all kinds as our friends. And not just cats, puppies, fish in the aquarium and parrots. We are starting to accept all wild species, including those in stables and cages. They all become our friends because they feel we won’t eat them, that we aren’t dangerous to them. From this ethical point of view, do not kill, but appreciate and respect animals. From this perspective, it is easy to become vegan. Veganism is the result of our conscious decision to look at animals completely differently. It is true, however, that more and more people are opting for such ethical criteria.

  1. If I am vegan, I respect the moral and ethical principles and rights enshrined in the US Constitution
  2. If I am vegan, animals do not have to suffer in stables, carriages, be exploited for milk and eggs, and slaughtered for meat.
  3. If I am vegan, I make a significant contribution to reducing world hunger.
  4. If I am vegan, I do not share responsibility for the destruction of tropical forests and fertile fields with chemicals and animal excreta for animal feed.
  5. If I’m vegan, I’m not co-responsible for the terribly rapid pollution and water consumption by mass animal husbandry.
  6. If I am vegan, I have a much smaller share in the extinction of animal and plant species nowadays, because again, livestock farming is the main cause.
  7. If I’m vegan, I have a much smaller share of greenhouse gas emissions that harm the climate. Again, livestock is one of the main causes.
  8. If I’m vegan, I contribute to lower energy consumption, which is supposed to save me money. Agriculture with an emphasis on livestock farming is again a big consumer.
  9. If I am vegan, I already automatically follow the recommendation or commandment DO NOT KILL.
  10. If I’m vegan, I’m less of a healthcare expense, and at the same time a supporter of people trying to grow bloodless, vegan food. I am also a grower and processor of such vegan food.
