Is Your Diet a Killer—or a Lifesaver?

There are countless things that we can do that endanger our lives, but there’s one thing we can do that can not only help us live longer but also save many more lives at the same time: adopting a vegan diet.

Around 16 billion (that’s “billion” with a “b”) animals are slaughtered each year to feed Americans, which works out to more than 100 animals per meat-eater in the U.S. But you’re smart—you do the math. And then do the smart thing: Go vegan!

    I have hipoglusemia (kind of a type 1 Diabetes) and sometimes I eat vegan for a whole day (sometimes 2 or 3 days in a row) and when I do it actually makes my cravings for sweets go away :)

    There’s about 7,500,000 vegans in America… 7,500,000 X 100=750,000,000… so veganism saves at least seven hundred fifty million animals each year, not counting non-US countries and vegetarians!

    As a kid, I was and am still curious about the great big world we live in, and I thought nothing of animal abuse. But for some or no completely good reasons, I was getting sicker and weaker. Then one day I heard about PETA while I was on the internet. I got a little curious, and I went veg after finding out meat was one of the reasons I was sicker. Right now, I'm still trying to give up meat for my health. But I'm getting there!
