Three Reasons to Go Vegan

Three Reasons to Go Vegan

1st November 2020
By: Julie - F&F

More and more people are going vegan, plant-based or cutting down the amount of meat they eat. There are many reasons people do this and three that come up time and time again are.....

Kindness

Lots of us love animals and ethically don't want to eat animals, wear animals or exploit animals. I went vegetarian at age 16 because of the ethics aspect. Later on in life, once I'd learnt a bit more,  I took that further and became vegan. When you're thinking animals we often think diet but we should also think about what we wear in terms of clothes and shoes, what we put on our skin and much more. Animals are used in many things including glue in shoes, lollies (gelatin) and the list goes on. A great resource to read here is The Vegan Society and if you want to watch a Netflix film try Okja.

Our Planet

World meat production has quadrupled since the 1960s. Our carbon emissions are a huge problem and a large amount comes from livestock production. In Australia 11% of national greenhouse gas emissions are caused by livestock. This makes Australia’s livestock the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions after the energy and transport sectors. Livestock are the dominant source of methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O), accounting for 56% and 73%, respectively, of Australia’s emissions. Globally, livestock accounts for between 14.5 percent and 18 percent of human-induced greenhouse gas emissions.

In addition land is being cleared at a devastating rate for this livestock and for the crops to grow to feed them.

Health

If you're vegan you'll know that being vegan doesn't necessarily mean your diet is healthy and there is plenty of vegan junk food. However more people are going plant-based because of the health benefits. We're frequently seeing athletes move to a vegan diet. Roman Gladiators were actually mostly vegetarian and had a higher than average bone density! Some research, from Toronto University, has shown that eating a vegan diet reduces your cholesterol in 4 weeks, amongst other health benefts, and athletes have seen improved performance since going vegan hence why many have maintained the diet. A great Netflix documentary to watch is Game Changers and there is so much research online plus plenty of recipes. As with all diets talk to a specialist if you want to make a radical change to ensure you're getting everything you need. We have plenty of vegan supplements at F&F and some good vegan recipes
