    I have been vegan for a number of years. There are so many alternatives these days. I am 68 and have been in the best of health for years and astound the doctors if i am ever there by telling them i am vegan. Animals are so cruelly treated in all aspects of l;ife for humans and factory farming is inhumane.People would be so much healthier if they thought about what they ate and how they lived.

    Animals are sentient beings the same as humans and do not deserve the cruelty we inflict upon them. We do not need them to survive as we may have done in the past. A vegan diet would indeed improve health. We have a moral obligation to respect and protect other species and in so doing care for our planet.

  4. Animal should have as much rights as humans as they are living beings, so should not be eaten. I will never understand why we are so cruel to them?? I have been a veggie for 30 years & will try to be a vegan in 2014.

    Thank you for your website. I had been wondering about wool production methods. I feel there will always be a range of best practice and savagery until human consciousness moves to kindness and caring for all. In the mean time I will share your website. Some friends recently told me that they had become vegan. I am going to look at this now. It was Pink’s video that brought me to Peta.org when Torsi mentioned Pink had spoken about UGG manufacture. I always say that once you know the truth then you have choice. Now I have to make a choice. It’s not difficult. Walk the talk.

    I tried a vegan diet for 4 months and I found it quiet easy to find vegan products but I did give it up because I miss cows milk in my tea to much and I can not live without tea(believe me I tried, even tried herbal alternative) so now I am strictly vegetarian but I always go for organic diary never any other. so I suggest pledge going vegan for 2 months to see if its for you because it isn’t for everyone.
