I will try to post more :)

The answer stays the same :), but I do have another one.....

Becasue it MAKES NO SENSE at all to kill another living being to simply make money and satisfy one taste buds. I don't get it..I really don't!

I will be posting an article that a local paper did on me about being in the fitness industry as well as being vegan. It is mainly about being vegan.

Because I will not eat anything that has a beating heart and the capacity to love and have babies like we do. (Or as I say to people who ask "Why Vegan?" I just say "I don't eat anything that has a face" x

The people you meet. That's a definite reason to go vegan. The most diverse group of totally insane, hilarious and positive people I have ever met are vegans.

123] Because we should't do to others, what we wouldn't like to be done to us. It's as easy as that.:D

every animal in the world is one more reason to go vegan!:D

Because suffering feels the same whether it is inflicted upon me or an animal.

124. Because the livestock industry supports the killing of wild animals that compete (apparently) for food.

I didn't see this one listed anywhere here:

101 Reasons Why I'm a Vegetarian (http://www.garynull.com/Documents/VivaVine/101ReasonsVegetarian.htm)

There's now a book (http://www.vivavegie.org/101book/) as well.

125. Because my family and I don't need to consume animal products to thrive.

Sep 7th, 2007, 03:27 PM
126. Because animals deserve to be free.

127) Because my body isn't a graveyard.

128) I sleep very sound knowing I'm not contributing to the suffering of others.

129) Because livestock produce more greenhouse gases responsible for global warming than do all forms of transportation combined! It is a combined problem including the cattle's burps, farts, and methane producing manure (over 100 pounds per cow per day!), the deforestation to make land to grow crops for them to eat, and the transportation of their feed all added together.

Other people have already alluded to this (including vegan forum member SBond back in post #35) but now this info comes with a lot more clout since it is not from a vegan organization but rather from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (http://www.fao.org/newsroom/en/news/2006/1000448/index.html).

Making matters even worse, meat production worldwide is expected to double what it is today by the year 2050. Think about that, this major contributer to global warming (currently around 18%) will double within our own lifetimes!

The UN's full PDF report, "Livestock's Long Shadow", not just a summary, is found on the top of this page: here. (http://www.virtualcentre.org/en/library/key_pub/longshad/A0701E00.htm#sum)

130.)because carrots turn you orange and orange is the greatest color ever! (not that omnis can't eat carrots but you have to eat a lot for that to happen and I would assume vegans eat more....I don't know I guess....)

131) because your weekly shopping bill goes down:D (from 30 - 14!)

132) Because veganism is environmentalism and environmentalism protects humans too!

I'm not going to add a number because I'm sure this point has been raised in several different forms but...

It gives you a small but significant feeling of wellbeing to know that far less suffering has occurred in the creation and sourcing of what you eat. To cook a lovely vegan meal for a group of vegetarian and meat eating friends without them even knowing, and when it's discussed after you can casually mention that it is cruelty free.

It's only a start of course, I continually worry about climate change, food miles, human exploitation and reckless consumerism but through an ongoing personal revolution you can be sure you are not contributing in a negative way in our brief chapter on this beautiful planet.

133) you are so much more aware of your body and what it needs and what it cant handle. you listen to your body, not your tastebuds.

(sorry if this has been written already)

134) Vegans are SEXY!!!

135) Because I can but wouldn't want to imagine the pain it feels should the razor blades slide across my neck and have my blood shed in streams, nor the suffering it bestows should I be imprisoned for the species I have been born into. Should these all happen, I prefer to imagine death.
