The main reason I went Vegan is because over the last couple of years..the one that was always there for me when I was upset or worried was my dog (rip) not a human and for that reason alone should change a persons view on eating me.
Animals are the greatest creatures alive..I want them to stay alive for as long as they possibly can and if I can save some animals from being killed then that would be amazing.I would never lower myself to eat animals ever again because Im worth more then that and so are the animals.
Plus..I feel much happier then I have in years and I believe that is down to becoming a vegan :)

134) Vegans are SEXY!!!

Agreed :)

Because it's secretly kinda fun to argue with omnis about it and feel all awesome because we know we're right...not that I would take pleasure in that...:rollseyes_ani:

Didn't read all, so I apologize if somebody already wrote this:
I can eat raw cake batter and not worry about food poisoning.

^Hello :)

Because all the label reading makes me aware of the many strange things we put in our food.

I second that! :eek: It's very alarming, especially the preservatives in things, like E211 I think. :hmm:

Because nonhumans animals have no right to suffer for us, in any context. Said before I know, but its true.

Also because you can actually feel like you're in symbiosis with the living world, instead of seperate

It is the only way of living that comes close to an existance that tries, without exception between animal or human, to live without causing harm to either.

- Because the benefits are HUGE not only for EVERYONE (except the animal industries)/EVERYTHING, but they also extend to yourself.
- It's probably the COOLEST thing ever to be able to breathe through BOTH nostrils when colds and seasonal allergies are widespread.

74) Because no matter how many reasons an omnivorous person can come up with for eating meat, every one of those can be countered and shown to be flawed.

Because I have seen the light.

Because animals should enjoy life just like we do.

"If you love animals called pets, why do you eat animals called dinner?" - Farm Sanctuary bumper sticker which I have on my refrigerator. I use this quote on questioning meat eating people that have companion animals all of the time and it usually stops them in their tracks.

Because the animals in factory farms never see the light of day.

Because there are millions of animals being tortured in laboratories.

Because when I see a horse drawn carriage in the middle of traffic in NYC, I look at the horse and I want to cry.

Because when the circus comes to town, I want to scream.

Because when I hear someone hitting their dog because the dog barked at me as I walked by, I feel so bad and tell the creep that "I don't mind that the dog is barking. He is only doing his job."

Because I can stay here all day and list my reasons why people should go vegan.

See, I told you. I came right back.

Because I think animals are cool.

Because I think animals are beautiful.

Because cats purr.

Because when I see a happy animal I feel so good inside.

Because I feel liberated every day.

Because not a day goes by that I don't feel sad about all of the animals that are suffering at the hands of human beings.

Because there are more than 101 reasons why people should go vegan.


(I'm sorry Korn for not numbering my reasons, but I don't know which number to start with.) :confused:

good one RainInStarlight. :D

I have some more reason why people should go vegan.


Because I move my bowels 3 times a day.

Because it is the right thing to do. After seeing the light, there is no turning back.

Because even in my darket moments, my being vegan makes me happy, even if it is only for a moment or two.

Because animals are not that different than us.

Because I have met so many nice vegans.

Because being vegan supports certain moral and religious issues that I have, which issues I already had before I even heard of the word "vegan".

Because when I turned vegetarian overnight, it took me only 4 months before I went vegan. Giving up eating animals just was not enough.

Because everyday I see the reason why I became vegan in the first place.

Because I don't want to die of heart disease.
Because I didn't like feeling sluggish in the mornings.
Because I no longer have the smell of rotting flesh in my house.
Because food stories on the news no longer scare the crap out of me.
Because my "converted muslim" daughter and granddaughter can visit and eat anything in my house.
But mainly because I live surrounded by fields full of animals and I no longer feel guilty when I look at them.

hey, for 80 it helps to have better sex? I read about this on the book "For the Vegatarian in You" P30-34 section 7:Vital Juices: Vegetarianism and sexuality.

and I think for me, vegan is good because it is totally consistant with my spiritual believe!!! VEGAN is the way to PEACE, and my dream is world peace one day before I die.

Because I know that I'm doing my part in trying to help the world become a better and more compassionate place.
