Its time to consider Veganism

Its time to consider Veganism



When I became vegan 35 (pre-internet) years ago, there was little information available and we didn’t know if the vegan way of life would even be beneficial. We didn’t know if vegans could remain healthy without eating any animal products. Thirty-five unwavering vegan years later – I hope to inspire you and let you know that we CAN live vegan, long-term. We can live without intentionally inflicting violence on other animals. We can make a stand and not be a part of the cruelty of needlessly enslaving, objectifying, and assaulting fellow feeling animals. We can be forerunners of a world where anyone sentient has their basic birth rights respected, because they are perceptually-aware, conscious, and feeling. Unlike plants and objects, animals; both human and nonhuman, have the capacity to suffer and the desire to want to live ~ and to live free from harm.

Embarking on the vegan path, you are committing to being a part of the solution to what ails our planet; violence, oppression, slavery and environmental devastation. We can be pioneers of a cleaner, healthier and less violent world. We can be staunch animal rights advocates by living vegan and educating others. We can literally stop demanding animal exploitation with what we financially fund. Veganism is a consistent ethic as it extends to every facet of our lives, from what we eat, to what we wear, to the toiletries and products we buy, to the practices we literally support. And though it may initially feel daunting, once we learn which new vegan products (no animal derivatives and not tested on animals) to buy, which food staples to consume and which vitamins to ensure we are consuming, and what not to support (circuses, zoos, breeders, etc.) – vegan living becomes second nature. Some think becoming vegan seems difficult, but when we focus on the victims (animals) – living vegan becomes routine and not being vegan is no longer an option. I know with all my heart and soul that living vegan is the right thing to do and I let it guide my life.

You can look forward to walking the earth with this same satisfying feeling one day soon. There are rewards for you too. I’ve not needed to take a pharmaceutical or visit a doctor, hardly ever. I once lived with 35 vegans and every one of us felt our health improve after we became vegan. There’s no health guarantees, but chances are – if you eat a balanced whole foods plant-powered diet ensuring you get all necessary nutrients, you will become healthier. What you need to know in a nutshell: supplement with sublingual vegan Vitamin B12, get some sunshine every day for the natural and optimal way to obtain Vitamin D (and if you don’t get sunshine, please supplement with Vitamin D2, or one of the new brands of vegan Vitamin D3; which is generally not vegan), have a daily intake of omega 3 fats in the way of walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, hempseed, purslane, etc. or supplement with algae-derived DHA/EPA supplement sometimes, eat calcium rich foods like dark leafy greens and almonds on a daily basis, eat iron-rich foods, and check your iodine if you are not eating seaweed or iodized salt. I recommend a green drink every day of fresh orange juice and plenty of dark leafy greens, blended with a piece of fruit. Don’t be scared by these recommendations – if you check the ingredient lists of nonvegan foods, you will see they are fortified; vitamins added in. Studies say that animal-food-consumers have to watch out for even more nutrients that they are not getting. I just want you to be optimally healthy – and we have figured out from studying vegans – what exactly you should check and ensure you are not deficient in. Eat plenty of raw fruit and salad. Particularly beneficial foods to include are broccoli, walnuts, tempeh, quinoa, dark leafy greens, something orange like sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or cooked carrots – as we vegans make Vitamin A converted from beta-carotene.




Thank-you for stepping it up and making a stand, because increasing the number of vegans on Earth is the most important thing we can do to help heal the planet and all its inhabitants. When I became vegan, I didn’t know any other vegans and it’s a real joy to know that I’m no longer alone and that more and more people are becoming vegan every day! We’re on our way to making history!

Humanity adopting vegan living is the most significant social justice movement of our time, with the most far-reaching ramifications for a better, brighter world, and quite possibly the greatest hope for even having a future of life on Earth. According to the United Nations, Farming animals is the biggest culprit in global warming; which, according to some scientists, is a very serious threat to human life on Earth. Animal “agriculture” is also a major problem in environmental devastation and using up natural resources.

Most of the plants we grow are inefficiently cycled through animals – unnecessarily, when they could instead be fed to starving people of our overpopulated world, and stop purposely breeding animals into existence only to be commodified, oppressed slaves. We can eat a plant-powered diet to combat environmental devastation and global warming and to live healthier, but we are vegan – for the animals and opposing exploitation of anyone sentient, which turns out to be the best thing for the planet, both environmentally as well as sociologically. Human temperament will become less violent when people stop consuming death, misery and violence.
