It's my 2 year "VEGANniversary!" :) There are SO many reasons I am vegan: humane treatment of animals, animal's rights as sentient beings, the concern I have for the people we pay to do the dirty deed of slaughtering 10,000,000,000 animals a year to feed a gluttonous appetite, concern for the environment, and the care and keeping of our bodies (which God has called our temples and house the Holy Spirit).
So many of the diseases our nation faces are often called "Western diseases," or "diseases of 'civilized' man." If you have 14 minutes I would highly, HIGHLY encourage you to watch this video, featuring Dr. T. Colin Campbell. Give it some thought. And have a happy May Day!
