Why is “Animal Free” the Best that Food Can Be?
I was a half ass vegetarian who still ate dairy and shellfish. I was doing an interview with a guest and he said, “I hear you’re a vegetarian; do you eat dairy?” I said “yeah,” and he said, it’s “liquid meat.” I said, “Oh my God,” because it hit me just like that; eating dairy was the same in terms of animal welfare as eating meat. That moment I went vegan. – “Plant Chat: Jane Velez-Mitchell, Plant-Based Advocate”
With animal agriculture as the leading cause of species extinction, water pollution, ocean dead zones and habitat destruction, and with the death spiral of the ecosystem ever more pronounced, becoming vegan is the most important and direct change we can immediately make to save the planet and its species. – “Saving the Planet, One Meal at a Time.” American journalist and Presbyterian minister, Chris Hedges
For me, the most persuasive evidence supporting a healthy vegan diet is the everyday reality that a dozen or so people with whom I eat have done extraordinary things as a direct result of intelligent veganism. They’ve conquered obesity, chronic disease, depression, and a host of food-related disorders by exclusively eating an exciting diversity of plants. If there’s one lesson I’ve learned, it is this: the diet empowers. – James McWilliams, “The Evidence for a Vegan Diet,” The Atlantic
I found the data that began to reaffirm my vegetarianism. It led me to learn more about our environment and cruelty to animals. I began saying I was a vegetarian because, for me, it was the best way to live in accordance with the ideals and values that I have. Suddenly, eating eggs for me was something that didn’t align with my spirit, and I could feel it. My veganism started then.” – New Jersey Senator Cory Booker, “This Planet Simply Can’t Sustain People Eating Meat,” The Washington Free Beacon
