It really seems bizarre when vegans are blamed for being extreme considering the fact they are purely noble-minded considering their concern not only for the well-being of all animals but also for the environment and their overall health. However, things become really weird when parents are accused of nourishing their children improperly by raising them up on a vegan diet.
It’s always a pleasure to hear about individuals who decide to go vegan. By now, there are even entire cities that are considered to be “vegan” cities because of the vast possibilities they offer to visit vegan restaurants or purchase vegan foods. In fact, the capital of Germany, Berlin, is even being awarded to be the vegan capital of Europe. However, this country is relatively small in comparison to huge countries like China for example.

Defensive lineman David Carter was a meat-eating, milk-guzzling, BBQ-loving football player. About the furthest from vegan you could find. Then he saw a documentary and everything changed. Hear David talk about his conversion and the impact it’s had on his health, athletic performance, and conscience. He has some very powerful words to share.
Passionate vegans look for any way to make people more sensitive to the suffering of animals. However, by overtaking an entire tube-station in order to advertise for a vegan lifestyle PETA UK went definitely the extra mile. Its purpose is to encourage people to show compassion to animals by simply ditching any animal products.
The announcement of company chair Edward Roquette to invest $400 million and to hire 150 people on a full-time basis in order to open the world’s largest plant-based protein factory in the world must have been awesome news to vegans worldwide. However, especially vegans in Manitoba must have cheered-up as the plant is going to be established in Canada.
Definitely, it must have been a shocking surprise to Sarah discovering a lump in her breast while dancing joyfully in her mother’s home on December 3rd last year. However, it took until December 30 to know that this lump was due to Stage 1 breast cancer. The mum-of-four has been told to pursue conventional treatment ranging from radiotherapy to mastectomy or lumpectomy. But she decided to turn down these options in favor of a vegan diet.
One of the most popular vegan supermarket in the world decided to team up with Oxford University scientists to help people go vegan by studying the health impact of animal food and its impact on the environment. Marco Springmann, who is in charge of this project reported that the consumption of red and processed meat is closely linked to most health issues worldwide. Against this background, the Oxford researchers predicted that, however, switching to a plant-based diet could avoid 7.3 millions fewer deaths per year globally.
Currently, about 7.3 billion people live on this planet. This number is supposed to rise up to 9 billion people by 2050. Some experts even estimate the world population to rise up to 10 billion people by that time. So, why is this so critical and how is this dramatic surge supposed to be handled? Those 9 or even 10 billions people are going to have to eat.
Diet habits start to shift towards a plant-based diet in so many institutions which seemed very unlikely ten years ago. Obviously, the awareness of living a life that is committed to making a difference is rising. Due to a research study, millennials are twelve times more likely to go vegan than baby boomers.
