Why Vegan?

There are many reasons why we choose to be vegan.
the three most popular are:
-Ethics
-Health
-Environment
And for a lot of us, the more informed we become, the more significant a weighting each reason holds.

Ethical veganism
Ethical vegans generally believe that humans have no rights over other animals’ lives and bodies so they choose to live in a way that is consistent with this view. When humans use animals for food or clothing, there is almost always death and suffering on the animal’s part, which is not an acceptable way to treat out cohabitants of this planet, especially when humans have no need for these animal’s products.

Health veganism
The health arguments in favour of veganism are numerous. Consumption of animal products is linked to illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, among other things. Veganism is linked to lower levels of these illnesses, as well as lower than average body mass indexes, and longer lifespans.

Environmental veganism
Environmental vegans tend to consider the environmental impact of animal agriculture in their food choices. Animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of carbon emissions, deforestation, species extinction, desertification, and is a huge and unnecessary drain of natural resources such as land and water.
