Re: why people are not vegans?

I don't think the "meat tastes good" argument holds water because it really doesn't. Animal flesh smells and tastes like blood, and as humans, we don't have a natural propensity toward eating blood. Eating animals is a Learned behavior and it becomes ingrained in the lifestyle of modern hu...

Re: Hommus?

I use a blender that I usually use for smoothies to make hummus. It's not an expensive blender, ~$40 US, and it comes out smooth. I think the issue is with the cooking time probably, but i'm just guessing.

Re: Is anyone in my position?

My family was adamantly against me becoming vegetarian when i was younger. My father made me have blood tests done once a month for quite a while until he realized that the doctor was much more concerned with my mild acne than my not eating animal products. Even now after 10 years of not eating anim...

Re: Does any of this really make sense?

I've come to realize that most people on the internet are liars. If you are getting your information from youtube videos, I suggest you find a better source. As far as current medical science is concerned it is perfectly healthy to live on a 100% plant based diet. And, a vegan lifestyle has a lower ...

Re: Why is this part of the forum called animal rights?

@aoas Your being in the minority when it comes to thoughts on rights has everything to do with this thread. If your beliefs were in line with the majority, you would not have taken issue with this forum being named animal rights. Your not believing in rights does not make this forums name any less a...

Re: Why is this part of the forum called animal rights?

I'm assuming this part of the forum is called animal rights because most vegans do believe in animal rights and this is the place to talk about subjects related to animal rights. You are probably in the minority if you don't believe sentient beings deserve rights. All living beings should have the r...

Re: medicines containing animal products

Being vegan is about not contributing to unnecessary suffering. If it is necessary for your continued health and survival then you don't really have a choice. Hopefully there will come a time when medications are not tested on animals or made with animal ingredients, but that is not the case now. Ho...

Re: How & Why Did you become a vegan/vegetarian?

I began to feel uncomfortable about eating animals when i was around 8 or 10 years old and realized what meat is made of, but it wasn't till i turned 15 that i was allowed to become vegetarian. Not long afterwards i just stopped eating eggs and dairy after someone made a joke about how they didn't k...
