I really hope you enjoy the video and benefit from the second edition of Raw Talk: World Vegan Day Celebration – Why Vegan?
Below are some basics around the question why vegan, be sure to watch the video for much more in-depth heart felt answers to this important question.
Veganism is a compassionate lifestyle choice that has become increasingly popular in recent years due to the arising awareness in people and around the harsh realities of the animal “food” industry. Those who practice veganism choose to eliminate all animal products from their diet, including dairy, eggs, honey, and bee products. In addition to abstaining from animal products, many vegans also choose not to wear animal–derived clothing such as wool, or leather or use animal–based products such as leather or fur. This all said most vegans choose to donate or give away old clothing or products rather than throw them away.
So you may ask, Why Vegan?
One of the main reasons that someone may go vegan is for health benefits. Following a vegan diet has been linked to a lower risk of developing heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes. By excluding animal products from their diet, vegans can also reduce their cholesterol and saturated fat intake, which can help improve overall cardiovascular health. Additionally, many vegan foods, namely all unprocessed plant foods, are naturally high in fiber, providing important nutrients to the body.
Another reason someone may go vegan is environmental reasons. Studies have shown that animal agriculture is a major contributor to climate change, largely due to the production of methane and nitrous oxide emissions. Additionally, animal agriculture is responsible for a large amount of deforestation, which can lead to soil degradation and water pollution. By eliminating animal products from their diet, vegans can help reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment.
Many vegans also choose to go vegan for animal rights reasons. Vegans believe that animals have the right to live their lives free from suffering, and they oppose the use of animals for food, clothing, and other products. Vegans also strive to reduce animal cruelty and exploitation to the greatest degree possible and practicable, which is often found in animal agriculture and animal testing of products.
Finally and truly at the root of veganism, people often go vegan for ethical reasons. Vegans strive to make conscious and compassionate choices to reduce their potential contribution to the suffering of animals. Many believe that all living creatures have the right to enjoy life, and veganism is seen as the most ethical way to live. It is clear that there are many reasons why someone may go vegan. Whether it be for health, environmental, animal rights, or ethical reasons, going vegan can be a positive and beneficial lifestyle choice.
The more you dig and grow in reasons to go vegan the question moves from Why Vegan to Why Not Vegan?
