With more people becoming aware of the benefits of a plant-based diet, it’s only a matter of time before the majority of the population is on board. Animal agriculture is already on the decline, and with growing awareness, it’s only continuing to fall.
Unconscious human acts will lead us to a vegan future
It is well-known that humans are not aware of their acts until they face the problem they have provoked. When we start facing the terrible consequences of climate change, it will be late to push the “back” button. But destroying our planet will only have deadly consequences for us, as the Earth has the power to regenerate. The sad truth is that the planet would be in much better shape if there were no humans.
So there are radical measures to undertake to save us and the environment. Animal agriculture is a leading cause of climate change. By switching to a plant-based diet we can help take a stand against this devastating issue. Additionally, veganism is better for our health as it can help reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, obesity, and cancer. Plus, it’s more humane! The animal agriculture industry is notoriously cruel, so by ditching animal products, we can help to end this unnecessary suffering.
If you are thinking about switching to vegan diet, whether it is because of a more ethical way of living or because of health, you are already on a good path to become one.
People are running away from the word “vegan”. Automatically when you say “vegan” they have in mind grass, salads, or low nutrition. This topic carries a lot of prejudice by some individuals, mostly because of a lack of interest and knowledge about it.
But a vegan diet is all around us. Plants, fruits, vegetables, nuts, that everybody has in their daily meal more or less.
When it comes to healthy eating, it is hard to know just what to believe. Many of the myths surrounding plant-based food come from common misconceptions. False or contradictory information circulates rapidly, making it challenging to keep up-to-date with developments. There are many misconceptions about plant-based diets, which, more often than not, trip us up and keep us second-guessing the dietary choices we’ve picked over time. That’s why it is equally important to get to know what is true and what is false. Let’s learn together.
In this colonized world, it is not a surprise that the world is usually seen through white lenses. Social media, ads, and diets are likely to be recommended by white people for white people. And that is not only problematic but also unrealistic.
The persistent and often ignored whitewashing on today’s mainstream media is currently the provider of information on everything, especially food awareness and eating habits. But how can we talk about food without acknowledging the multiple racially of our world?
The truth is that we can’t. And if we do, we are most definitely ignoring the existence of racial and cultural differences. A long time ago, George Santayana said that those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In a moment of history such as these, pledged by misinformation, right-wing politicians, and conspiracies theories, it should not be a surprise when people are clueless about where veganism started. It was not in LA. It is not white.
The conversation around what veganism stands for has been going on for quite some time on social media. Can a movement with a focus on individualized behavior change the political spectrum? The answer is a simple yes. Naturally, humans are political beings. Therefore, every small action we take impacts our political scenery.
In Today’s column, we are entering the world of veganism as a movement. We will be talking about the impact of vegan consumption on the environment. Because, how many of you look at veganism as a movement rather than a diet? How many of us use the word “lifestyle” when asked why we are vegans?
In our last article, we have studied the cultural and social problems surrounding animal abuse. Today, we will enter deeply into this conversation and why it should be one of our priorities as a society to stop this oppression. Animal cruelty is the consequence of our actions as a collective, so the least we can do now is to fight against this mistreat.
At every minute, one animal suffers from abuse. It shocking that after years of evolution, animals are still subject to pain and suffering. Nowadays, we not only turn a blind eye to the matter, but we also have laws and legislation that allow animals to be in dangerous situations. How can it be accepted the raising of chickens in horrendous conditions for the purpose of nothing but to feed us?
Since time immemorial, meat consumption has always been tagged with some negative opinion. It’s true to say that meat, despite being that chewy, juicy, full-of-flavour food that satisfies most appetite urges, it remains one of the most dangerous foods. Flexitarians and vegans are continually searching for foods that resemble meat but are not meat and have the same nutritional benefits. In other words, meat analogue is a meat substitute that is made solely from vegetarian ingredients. How impressive is that!
Veganism is more than just a fad. One of the most popular movements of the 21st century, people are becoming vegan for many reasons. The most common reasons behind the change to veganism are for health benefits, the environment, or for the sake of animal welfare. People have grown tired of meat-eating and want something different. In today’s post, we look at what veganism is, its benefits, and why it is a far better alternative to eating meat.
