Vegan means nothing animal; no meat, milk, cheese, yogurt, egg, ice cream, butter. Some people say: if you do not eat animal, where are you going to get your protein, calcium, and B-12? A cow stands all day and eats nothing but grass. So, where does the cow get protein, calcium, and B-12?
It is an established fact that a plant based diet is the healthiest. There is much scientific research to support this. More importantly, a plant based diet was designed by God for mankind. Vegan is the best diet. Vegan was the Garden of Eden diet. Vegan is the best way to eat for preventing cancer and other diseases.
The fact is malnutrition and starvation will kill about 14 million people this year. If Americans reduce their intake of meat by just 10% the land, water and energy freed from growing livestock feed would feed 100 million people. Turning grain into flesh is extremely wasteful. Twenty vegetarians can be fed on the amount of land needed to feed one person on a meat-based diet.
Another fact: It takes about 300 gallons of water per day to produce food for someone who is totally vegetarian, but it takes more than 4,000 gallons of water per day to create the food needed to feed a meat-eater. Meat is a dead animal carcass, we are humans, not crows. The kidneys of the meat eater must work three times harder than the kidneys of the person who eats vegan. It takes meat four times longer to pass through the digestive tract, than it does for fruits, grains, beans and vegetables. The liability to take disease is increased tenfold by meat eating. Heart attack is the most common cause of death in the U.S., killing one person every 45 seconds. The male meat-eaters risk of death from heart attack is 50%. The risk to vegans who eat no meat is 15%.
