Who’s Really the Animal? And Why Being Vegan Is Good for Our Well-being

The debate about meat versus plants has been raging for thousands of years—and it is not likely to stop anytime soon. But while vegans often say eating meat means you support cruel, torturous, and inhumane treatment of animals, meat eaters argue that without animal meat, our bodies would lack the protein needed to sustain life. Is it really that simple?

We all eat. What we eat is the result of trillions of years of evolution, where certain foods became “superfoods” that benefited our hunter-gatherer ancestors. But what are these foods? And do they benefit us in modern times? In today’s blog post, we will discuss which foods are “superfoods” and explain why going vegan is better for our minds and bodies.

The most important thing that we can learn from animals is empathy. Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. When we see an animal in pain, we feel its pain. This is why being vegan is good for our well-being. When we are vegan, we are not causing pain to any animals. We are not contributing to the suffering of sentient beings. And that is good for our well-being.

It is often said that humans are the only animals that are able to rationalize and think abstractly. We like to think that this separates us from the “beasts” and makes us superior. However, if we look at the way we treat other animals, it becomes clear that we are not as different from them as we like to believe.

Animals are sentient beings that feel pain and pleasure just like we do. They have families and social structures and form strong bonds with others. Yet, we often treat them with complete disregard for their feelings and needs. We cage them, mutilate them, experiment on them, and kill them for food – all without a second thought. It is time to start thinking about the way we treat animals.

Veganism is a global and fast-growing movement. Recent research has shown that vegans have a lower body mass index, lower blood sugar and cholesterol levels, less heart disease, and a lower chance of dying of cancer. Science shows that a vegan diet is good for your health, the planet, and the animals.

It is a common misconception that vegans are somehow against eating animal products because they think that animals are equal to humans. Nothing could be further from the truth! Many vegans choose to live this way because they believe that all animals, including our furry or feathered friends, deserve to be treated with compassion.

Knowing that animals have feelings, needs, and personalities and are sentient beings, people who choose to eat them, support their exploitation, contribute to mass cruelty, and distort human society, should think twice.

We all know that animals are important to our ecosystem. They help balance our environment by eating plants and animals that are lower on the food chain. They also provide us with food, clothing, and other products. But what about us? Aren’t we animals too?

Yes, we are. And just like other animals, we need to eat in order to survive. But unlike other animals, we have the ability to choose what we eat. So, if we are animals, why should we eat other animals?

As we humans continue to develop and grow as a species, we like to think that we are becoming more civilized. We have developed language, systems of government, and ways of living that we think make us more advanced than any other species on earth. However, there is one area in which we still have a long way to go, and that is in the way we treat other animals. We continue to eat them, use them for entertainment, and experiment on them, all in the name of science or personal pleasure. But what does that say about us? Are we really the civilized ones? And more importantly, is this treatment of animals good for our well-being?

We all grew up being taught that humans are the most intelligent beings on the planet and that we are at the top of the food chain. We are taught that we are the only creatures that can use tools, that we are the only ones that can communicate through language, and that we are the only ones that have emotions. We are also taught that because we are so different from animals, it is okay for us to eat them and use them for our own purposes. 

Being a vegan has many benefits for you and for the environment. Plus, there are tons of tasty vegan recipes to try. Many people think that being a vegan means depriving themselves of delicious food. On the contrary, there are many delicious vegan recipes. You can stay full all the time while being kinder to animals and saving the planet.

Veganism can be a tough lifestyle choice, but people need to consider animals. Animals are not our food, possessions, or playthings; they are our companions and deserve just as much respect as people do. Being a vegan is a healthy lifestyle choice involving a simple choice to eat only plant-based foods.
