Go Vegan–Save Animals, Save the Earth

According to a study, more than 25 billion animals are killed by the meat industry each year which gives an idea about the rampant animal torture and killings. Animals definitely are not ours to use for food, clothing, entertainment and experimentation. Animals have the same rights as humans and they deserve to have their best interests taken into consideration, regardless of whether they are useful to humans. The human greed knows no bounds as for factory farming, animals like cows, pigs, calves, chickens, ducks, and many other animals are kept in overcrowded stalls, cages, crates, or sheds where they are often unable to turn around or take even a single step for their entire lives. These animals never get to see the sunlight or feel the grass beneath their feet, what to talk about any veterinary care and exercise?
The best way to save these animals from being tortured and murdered is to go vegan. It is said that an average vegetarian saves the lives of over 50 animals each year which adds up to thousands during a lifetime. It is totally up to us to make a decision every time we eat, if we want to support cruelty or compassion. If we care about the animals of the earth and their rights, if we care about mother earth and the environment, we must go vegan. A vegetarian diet reduces destruction of earth’s precious resources like rainforests and wildlife habitat. It also helps to save endangered species that are on the verge of extinction.

There are numerous benefits of a vegetarian diet. It helps us in losing weight and gaining more energy as it consists of fruits and vegetables, making our blood sugar stable. A vegan diet is also healthier as more fruits and more vegetables mean more vitamins. No meat means less toxins and unwanted hormones. A vegan diet also saves us from heart diseases as there are no saturated fats and cholesterol in it. It also saves from bone loss at the later stage in life as meat eaters get excessive protein in their diet.
Above all, eating a vegetarian meal is about caring and compassion. It’s about saving lives of innocent animals and save them from the every day horrors of torture and death. It’s about saving the earth and environment for future generations.

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.  : Anne Frank, Nazi Holocaust Victim
