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!

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!
