Why Go Vegan?

More than 13,000,000 Americans have adopted a plant-based, vegan diet for one or more of these reasons:

  1. It’s healthy: Many studies show that a meatless diet lowers our risk for heart disease, obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, osteoporosis, many cancers and food-borne illnesses. Vegan diets are typically high in fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals, and low in saturated fat and cholesterol.

  2. It’s greener: The farming of animals produce extensive pollution of our air, land, and waters due to waste and methane gas emissions. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of environmental degradation and was cited in a recent United Nations report as contributing 18 percent of the cause of global warming–more than all transportation sources combined!

  3. It’s humane: Farm animals,  who are very much like the cats and dogs we love, are often mistreated  and live most of their life confined in cages. By not purchasing meat, eggs, and dairy, you can say no to this cruel system and  begin living your values of peace and kindness.

Our outreach efforts are funded by members and donations, please consider joining VegMichigan or making a donation.  Thank you.
