“There are three main reasons people continue to eat animals in spite of the HORROR and TRAGEDY this behaviour generates… Fortunately, these three fundamental reasons for eating animals are ultimately invalid and indefensible.
INDOCTRINE, SOCIAL PRESSURE and the SELF-CENTRED PURSUIT OF PLEASURE have been behind all atrocities we humans have committed, and when we shine the light of our awareness and truth on them, they are seen for the weak, erroneous delusions that they truly are.” ~ Will Tuttle
VEGANISM is the practice of eliminating the use by human beings of non-human animal products. VEGANS reject the commodity status of animals and the use of animal products for any purpose – including dairy, eggs, fish, honey and meat.
Choosing to live a life free from animal products means choosing a path that is kinder to animals, the environment and people. In fact, there are so many good reasons to reject meat, eggs and dairy products and so many delicious animal free alternatives that the real question is not ‘why vegan?’ but ‘WHY NOT?’.
