If you should be vegan and should happen to meet a person who is not asking you to tell him why he or she should also go vegan, you should be able to name the six most convincing reasons to start a vegan lifestyle. These six reasons are not randomly picked but addressed to on the last World Vegan Day on October 29th. These reasons for adopting a vegan lifestyle range from being the best remedy against cancer and heart-related diseases up to the animal-caring impact of a vegan lifestyle. They are indisputably true and make the awesome benefits of a vegan lifestyle crystal clear not only for one’s own health but for the entire planet.

Most won’t even get to feel the warmth of the sun on their backs or breathe fresh air until the day they are loaded onto lorries headed for the slaughter house.
We are not baby cows
Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do – to feed their babies. However, on dairy farms, calves are separated from their mothers shortly after birth so that the milk nature intended for them can instead be consumed by humans.
It would actually be more natural for any adult still drinking milk to drink human breast milk – if that thought turns your stomach, so should the thought of drinking cows’ milk.”
