You must have read or heard after the pandemic, many big organizations, govt health ministries, are now suggesting about quieting meat and eating more raw food. It is now almost known that the reason for the pandemic was eating animals.
Recently United Nations asked people to quit eating meat because it is responsible for greenhouse gas emission, depletion of water resources, and deforestation.
Veganism is one of the most powerful ways in which you can support animal rights, spare the planet, protect your body, and live without moral compromises. More people go vegan every day, and if you’re committed to this lifestyle, you won’t find it as difficult to follow as you think. It is the single best action you can take.
Today, I’m sharing with you powerful reasons people choose veganism over any other diet. I’ll explain why going vegan is important and how to make the switch.
Veganism is not restricted to diet but it is a lifestyle. No use of animal products and services, which anyway can harm animals. Use of animals for food, clothing, entertainment, transportation, testing on animals, everything is avoided. Veganism is an ideology that is against the cruelty, exploitation, and suffering of animals.
Cows, pigs, sharks, fish, chickens, and other animals that often wind up on plates have emotions, just like you and me. They experience love, grief, and fear. They may not be able to verbalize their emotions – into the human language but it does not mean that they are unable to feel this.
It is easy to eat meat, chicken, eggs at any restaurant , but have you wondered what these habits are doing with your health.
If you ask any nutritionist what people should focus on in their diets, he or she will say, “Fruits and vegetables.” That’s always top-of-mind for any professional who makes dietary recommendations.
There are many research reports are there now which confirms that consumption of dairy and meat is not good for health.
This report says that how breast cancer risk increases with consumption of dairy
Recently FSSAI shared plant based source for vitamins and protein –
A lot of the food that’s grown in the world isn’t being eaten by humans. In fact, globally, 83% of farmland is set aside to raise animals for food.
While meat is more calorically dense than plants, more aggregate calories (and more diverse nutrient profiles) could be produced if that land was dedicated to various plants.
Countries like India where hunger is a big issue , animal farming should be stopped and that food should be used for humans.
We already know that there is very less percentage of drinkable water and many of it is used for agriculture purpose. If animals will be farmed for food they will need water to survive also food grown to feed them will also need water.
Consuming seafood is also an issue, as we face problems with overfishing.
You’ve probably heard that cows release a lot of methane in their farts and nitrous oxide in their manure, and these emissions are largely connected to climate change. That’s why a report by the UN concluded that animal agriculture is a larger contributor to greenhouse gas than all forms of transportation.
when rain forests are cleared to create livestock pastures, carbon is released into the air.
study found that producing animal-based protein requires eight times more fossil-fuel energy than creating plant-based protein.
meat products need to be shipped and refrigerated; and meat takes a long time to process from slaughterhouse to kitchen table.
Raising livestock usually leads to deforestation, which clears huge swaths of land of the different elements (such as trees) that provide nutrients and resilience, to make room for the livestock to roam.
Raising a diversity of plants, instead, nourishes soil and leads to long-term resilience.
Again, animal by-product consumption contributes to inflammation, which makes inflammatory diseases worse. If you suffer from arthritis or any other condition that impacts your joints, you might get some relief from veganism.
Though no one can predict his/her life but depending upon your eating and living habits it is can be said that you are living a healthy life or not. Meat consumption and dairy has proved to be reason of many diseases, which can ultimately reduce chances of your living years.
It is a myth that vegan food is without any taste or vegans eat only salads. There are hundreds of yummy vegan dishes which can be made tasty and healthy.
