As you might have heard, there are many good and urgent reasons to start transitioning to a vegan diet today – here are just a few of them:

  • Animal agriculture is one of the largest contributors to greenhouse gas emissions
  • Plant-based diets decrease your risk of major diseases, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease and even some types of cancer
  • Rain forests vanish in favor of cattle ranches and soy plantations for livestock
  • Drinking water is being contaminated by sewage and waste from farms
  • Antibiotic resistance that’s life-threatening to humans often comes from farmed animals
  • Close to 40% of the world’s grain (and 70% of US grain) is being fed to livestock, much of which is produced in countries where 17,000 children die of starvation each day
  • Millions of sentient beings suffer unimaginably for their short lives before being killed needlessly 
  • Many slaughterhouse workers suffer physical injuries or develop post-traumatic stress disorder
