The Why: Short concise articles attract and hold attention, and so Just Vegan explains briefly about benefits of being vegan, it’s healthy and you’re welcome to google the rest:

🌍 Saving sentient lives:
Over 56 billion farmed animals are killed every year by humans. These shocking figures do not even include fish and other sea creatures whose mortality rate can be measured in tonnes.

🌍 Ethics:
Ethics of killing, where the moral status of the individual killed is uncertain. Drawing on philosophical notions of personal identity and the immorality of killing, there are a host of practical issues, including abortion, infanticide, the killing of animals, assisted suicide, and euthanasia.

🌍 Eco systems:
🌿Decrease water footprint.
🌿Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
🌿Cause less deforestation.
🌿Less land use.
🌿Keep water on land.
🌿Encourage nutrient-rich soil.
🌿Less air pollution.
🌿Less water pollution.
🌿Healthy aquatic eco-systems.
🌿Protect wildlife.
🌿Encourage biodiversity.

🌍 Climate change:
🌿New analysis shows sustainability of ‘livestock’ as crude, as they consume much more protein, water and calories than they produce. ‘Meat’ and ‘dairy’ industries use up 83% of farmland, produce 60% of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions, contribute 57% of water & 56% of air pollution, and produce only 18% of food calories and 37% of protein.

🌍 Food security:
🌿800 million people do not have enough food. Food (and land) security is of major issues. The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) estimates that one in nine people are chronically undernourished. With the world’s growing population expected to increase from 7 to 11 billion by 2050, not enough land is available to feed populations to animal based diet.

🌍 Health:
Consuming colourful combinations of fruit and vegetables (whole plant based vegan meals) with balance from these food groups inclusive of nuts, seeds, legumes, beans, grains, edible herbs and spice, flowers and roots, is a healthy way forward for individuals to ensure they are meeting macro and micro -nutrient needs. That, together with adequate water, exercise, sunshine D3, additional B12, proper rest and sleep, meditation and laughter, will stand in good stead for improved health and longevity.
