It’s the 21st century and the popularity of the vegan diet has soared. Over the last 20, or indeed 10 years, there has been an explosions of vegan cafes and restaurants cropping up over the world.
The increasingly hip, cool and hot topic of veganism has attracted many a person far and wide. But, what does the meat and animal produce industry continue to tell us? What is being taught in schools worldwide? They are continuing to tell us to eat meat, pull the wool over our eyes and ignore the mass genocide of animals that happens each and every day in every country in the world.
Veganism has gained attention due to the supposedly massive health-benefits, the environmental impact and cultural and lifestyle shifts that have flooded the consciousness since technology advanced and it became cool to post about that quinoa burger or lentil soup.
Of course, moving away from supporting the meat and animals slaughter industry is hard, deliberately so. Today it costs more to eat vegan products than it does meat…go figure that out! What I suspect and many others also suspect, is that the rise of the vegan has been a pain in the ass for the big cows at the corporate headquarters.
Seriously, though, do you want to eat a diseased cow, locked in a shed, sick, stressed and pumped full of hormones or do you want to eat something else that eradicates the need for mindless killing? Strong points, but the war is in full swing.
So, here are some benefits of turning to a vegan diet!
- A vegan diet is loaded with nutrients: Animal products cause inflammation and disease with little to justify that. Plant based or vegan diets are loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals and generally support the body to function at its best. With a better functioning body, there is time for the organs to heal and for the brain and soul to begin to function clearly and effective.
- Weight loss: Meat an dairy contribute to increased cholesterol and weight gain. Meat also increases blood pressure, decreases mental awareness and lowers our energy levels. A nutrient-rich diet with high fiber (Don’t forget the b12) can increase energy levels, mental alertness and contribute and even cause weight loss.
- Lower blood sugar levels: Some studies have found that the increased fiber and nutrients improve blood sugar levels more than medication. This will in turn lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of hypertension and cardiovascular disease.
- Reduce the risk of cancer: Cutting out toxins and inflammatory promoting foods like dairy and meat can give the body more energy to protect itself. By adding those plant power foods, our bodies antioxidant capacity increases and our bodies begin to eliminate any and all toxins (they won’t remove them all). This may in turn reduce the risk of cancers as the body has the correct nutrition to find and kill these mutated cells.
- Improved mood: Naturally all that new energy and the building happiness and lightness that accompanies a vegan diet will lead to an increased sense of happiness and the feeling that you are more conscious. Why? Because those animal products have decreased your body functions and increased mental fatigue, brain fog and depression through the toxins and dangerous compounds within them.
So, with the amount of cattle exceeding the population of the human race and the food they require being able to feed the world 10 times over (you see, it’s bad), and the fact that they are degraded and tortured before death, leaves nothing for defence of the corporate bullies that are lying to us and our children.
You don’t need animal products, but you are more than welcome to indulge and live that lifestyle. The vegan life pushes it onto others which I disagree with.
You have to want to change in order to change.

This is interesting. I do believe in plant-based diets, but the deepest I’ve gone is vegetarian for a year or so. Great info here. Thanks for sharing!

No problem! I have read quite a bit of literature about it, but didn’t include any references. I am struggling to maintain my vegan diet since the new year. The longest stretch I did was about 5 months. 🙂
Thank you so much
