"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol-lowering drugs for the rest of their lives."

-Dean Ornish, MD

"The fact is that there is enough food in the world for everyone. But tragically, much of the world's food and land resources are tied up in producing beef and other livestock--food for the well off--while millions of children and adults suffer from malnutrition and starvation."

-Dr.Walden Bello

"An estimated 85 percent of all U.S agricultural land is used in the production of animal foods, which in turn is linked with deforestation, destruction of wildlife species, extinction of species, loss of soil productivity, mineral deletion and erosion, water pollution and depletion, overgrazing, and desertification."

Dr. Michael W. Fox, Agricide

"Your choice of diet can influence your long term health prospects more than any other action you might take."

-Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop

"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral."

Leo Tolstoy

"Vegetarians have the best diet. They have the lowest rates of coronary disease of any group in the country.... Some people scoff at vegetarians, but they have a fraction of our heart attack rate and they have only 40 percent of our cancer rate. They outlive other men by about six years now."

-Dr.William Castelli

"Excessive animal protein is at the core of many chronic diseases."

-Dr.Campbell

"Would you like to go to pasture with a chicken,cut him up, then drop him into a fresh manure pile, and eat him? That's what the product is like coming from chicken plants today."

-Chicken Inspector

 

  • vegan wolfNon violence is a goal everyone should be after.
    • Have a clear conscience for avoiding forcing pain to anything sentient.
The Bible says "Though Shalt not kill. " It doesn't say it's ok to kill animals or Iranians, it says "Thou shalt not kill.

"May all that have life be delivered from suffering."

-Buddha

"Of what use are all your sacrifices to Me? I have had enough of the roasted carcasses of rams and of the fat of fattened beasts. I take no pleasure in the blood of calves, lambs and goats . When you spread out your hands, I close My eyes to you; despite however much you pray, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood! Wash yourselves clean! Put away your misdeeds from before My eyes and stop doing evil."

-Isaiah 1:11, 1:15-16

"Their were no Slaughterhouses in the Garden of Eden."

-Unknown

 vegan wolfEating meat is totally unnecessary.
There is no proof, what so ever, that a person must eat animal flesh or any by products of animals to be healthy, yet there is overwhelming proof that it truely is best not to!

  vegan wolfLiving a vegan lifestyle is, of course, the most compassionate way to exist. Animals feel pain. Period. Why would someone choose to torture something for their own pleasure.

Show that you are a caring person. Modern agriculture keeps cows, calves, pigs, chickens, turkeys, ducks, and other animals in small overcrowded sheds, stalls, cages, or crates, where they're often unable even to turn around. These intelligent, social animals are deprived of veterinary care, exercise, sunlight--even the feel of grass under their feet. What we eat means choosing between the horrors of factory farming and respect for another sentient being.
There is a lot more that should be said and shown on the cruelty aspects of using animals. No one can deny it is beyond horrendous what we humans do to animals, all of which is totally unnecessary.

"Do we, as humans, having an ability to reason and to communicate abstract ideas verbally and in writing, and to form ethical and moral judgments using the accumulated knowledge of the ages, have the right to take the lives of other sentient organisms, particularly when we are not forced to do so by hunger or dietary need, but rather do so for the somewhat frivolous reason that we like the taste of meat? In essence, shouldn't we know better?"

-Peter Cheeke

"If you don't like my opinions leave. But just remember, the animals can't leave the cages that hold them. They are captive and suffering. As you cozy into your bed tonight, try to imagine the pain and the suffering that they endure day after day and night after night. Next time you get some soap in your eyes, try to imagine that pain for 3 or 4 days at a time. Next time you have a stomach ache, try to imagine liquid plumber being poured down your throat till you puke so much blood that you bleed to death. Next time you bump your head, try to imagine being a monkey and getting a steel plate smashed into your skull at 50 miles per hour. Then, only then should you feel compelled to tell me that I'm wrong about my opinions. For all these things have happened in the name of science. They continue in abundance till this day."

-Ricki Rockett

"The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies."

-Albert Schweitzer

"Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventure, and for hides and furs is a phenomena which is at once disgusting and distressing. There is no justification in indulging is such acts of brutality."

-The XLV Dalai Lama

"We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites, passions and organs with our own, and fill the slaughterhouses daily with screams of pain and fear."

-Robert Louis Stevenson

  • vegan wolfWhat we eat is a learned process or habit. Different societies eat different things. Some people eat dog, yet most Americans would say that that is completely wrong and intolerable. Yet, what is the difference between killing a dog for food and killing a cow? A dog feels pain. A cow feels pain...
  • vegan wolfBeing vegan is a lot more environmentally friendly, than a meat diet, even more so when one sticks with organic products. .. Eating a meat diet contributes more pollution, uses more land, more water, more deforestation, and more energy than a vegan diet.
    • Protect the planet for future generations.
    • Saves trees, reduces forest destruction for cow pastures. Between 1960 and 1985 alone, nearly 40 percent of all Central American rain forests were destroyed to create cheap grazing land for cows later served on North American and European plates. Going vegan saves one acre of forest every year. (Who knows what else we are losing while creating desserts out of forests.)
    • Uses less water. More than half of all water used in the U.S. is used to raise and kill animals for the table.
    • Uses less fossil fuels. Producing just one hamburger uses enough fossil fuel to drive a small car 20 miles.
      Creates less pollution. Animal feces is a major contributor to global warming and acid rain, plus pollutes numerous rivers and water sheds annually.
    • The worlds 17 major fisheries are at the point of collapse because of over fishing.

      "The world's environment can no longer handle beef."

      -Jeremy Rifkin of Beyond Beef

  • vegan wolfConsider the Welfare of humanity. We can feed more people in the world on the food that animals, raised as food, eat than we can on the "food" one gets from animals. The amount of vegetable protein fed to the US beef herd would feed almost the entire populations of India and China - two billion people.
  • vegan wolfSave Money. Plant nutrition costs a lot less than animal based.
  • vegan wolfHelps reduce National debt. Americans spend between $60 billion and $120 billion annually to treat heart disease, cancer, obesity, and food poisoning that are primarily caused by animal based diets.
  • vegan wolfPlant based foods taste great!

Check into the recipes page, or the prepared vegan food page, the menu page for lots of ideas.... There are also hundreds of other websites that have wonderful recipes and ideas.
A vegan diet can also be as gluttonous as any diet&. Beer, French Fries, cookies&.. so, as in ALL diets, watching what one eats is important.
