    Selfish to kill other living things when you can eat so many other things !

    I think being vegan is healthier than being a carnivore. However, the main reason I don't eat meat is because I believe that all living creatures should be allowed to live unmolested by humans.

    I like meat. I stopped eating it when I considered the conditions animals are kept in in order for us to have cheap meat. Cheap enough to throw half of it away and not care. When you can buy a whole, cooked chicken for under a fiver what kind of life did that chicken have? Animals should be kept in humane conditions until slaughtered and we should pay accordingly. They are not a crop 😔

    We challenged ourselves to eat vegetarian meals 3-4 days a week. To be honest, we didn't notice a difference in our health, but decided that vegetables are cheaper and more versatile than meat dishes, so we just kept it going. It means that our average meat consumption is cut by half, we don't feel deprived of meat, and our grocery bill thanks us. Easy choice.

    Vegans are the biggest danger to glodal warming, right up with fossil fuels. Heres why, We know that animals are a contributing factor towards CO2, so we need to reduce their number, eating seems to do that. Now here's the issue, Vegans dont help the rest of us lower the animal numbers thus lowering CO2 emissions. So, it means the rest of us have to increase our meat consumption to make up for their lack of assistance. Take one for the team Vegans and help save our planet, its the only one we have.

    If we can understand the greatness of living world ; especially animal world it is better to be vegan. If we can it is better to be vegan

    What about the notion that vegans, if they had the political clout, would ban the consumption of meat and use of any animal products, in the name of eliminating animal exploitation? Or is this the sixth myth?

    Maybe not in France, maybe the vegans in France are actually decent but not here in the US. They'll make a huge drama over a stranger eating something with meat 20 feet away from them and will laugh at the death of someone who ate meat. The problem isnt the movement itself, it's the people who follow it. That how bad reps start.

    We all can't live on vegetation, there is not enough to substan the population. That's why nature has a balance and if we don't eat animals they will over populate and become a bigger problem to our ecosystem. Besides, the animal at the top of the food chain is the best fit for survival. However our diets must include vegetation it's has to be a balanced diet, all your vitamins and minerals should come from your diet ( food )....if your diet calls for you to supplement, it's not a good diet.

    We cause a lot of pain and suffering to the animals for our selfish needs !

    What vegetarians havent realized is that all of creation is based on exploitation of something else. The entire system is designed this way and honestly I dont like it but until someone can come up with a new design for our world this is how its going to be. We exploit everything for own existence... animals, trees, insects, plants, minerals, rivers, the oceans, sun light, the earth itself, everything... We exploit everything to enhance our own existence. And animals exploit each other. After all humans are animals too. All of nature does this and its by design. So blame the creator(s) of our world. We didnt create a world that requires exploitation like eating things to live whether its plant or animal. It was like that when we got here.

    Veganism is comparable with a religion.
