I’m Not Being Pretentious. Go Vegan.

Beyond the save-the-whales mentality, there are about a billion reasons to go vegan. Here are a few.

Going vegan has become a big old scary fad. It’s time to put your bias to the wayside for a minute and take a look at what eliminating non-vegan foods can do for your health. Eliminating these foods from your diet has massive health benefits and that’s without even playing on the guilt-trip of slaughtering piglets, bunnies, baby cows, and chicks.

Milk
The milk of any animal is basically too rich for humans. It is highly acidic and mucus-forming. The fact that humans need to drink the milk of another creature after we’ve been weaned is actually laughable and propaganda hyped by its endorsers basically for their gain. Being a predigested food, it has been shown to cause various complications in the stomach and colon, such as cramps and convulsions. Its calcium is highly difficult to assimilate. This results in its introduction in free-form into the bloodstream and an eventual deposition in the tissues, cells, and joints where it may cause intense pain and suffering. Milk is loaded with antibiotics, bacteria, pesticides, cholesterol, and powerful growth hormones that are deeply troubling to the human body.

Contrary to the hype, drinking milk will not prevent osteoporosis. In 1995, the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study conducted on over 75,000 women revealed that those supposedly acquiring calcium from milk experience more fractures compared to those drinking little or no milk.

Animal milk is for the animal’s offspring and not you. Think about it.

Though I have read that raw goat’s milk could be sufficient for nursing mothers to feed their babies, I’d say simply the milk in your mammary glands should be the most ideal . If for whatever reasons you feel like you cannot give milk up, at least see to it that it is diluted.

Avocadoes or occasional Coconut milk as made by the Brazilians would be way better choices for creaminess in baking or cooking.

Honey
This over-promoted, overpriced product being sold to gullible health faddists should be eliminated from your diet. It is meant only for the bees that make it. Being predigested, it enters the bloodstream rapidly raising the blood sugar way above normal. To correct this, the pancreas must produce insulin or death may occur. Replace honey with genuine maple syrup for a much more balanced and safer, sweetener.

Eggs
Even worse than meats. Research has shown they are very constipating and its white is dangerous, acid-forming, and too high in protein qualities.

Fish
I’ve heard many people proudly declare, “I don’t do red meat just fish and poultry!” However, they are very mistaken in that. Fish putrefies much quicker than meat. If you cut a piece of fish and meat side by side, you’ll notice that the former decays much quicker than the latter. Imagine what it’s like on the inside of the body. Moreover, taking into consideration the heavy metal contamination that fish contains, based on the pollution of their habitat, fish is an especially bad choice, so do yourself a favor, avoid fish at all times if you can!

Those Pesky Non-Vegans
Though some non-vegans show bodily vigor, they usually do not possess the vegan’s endurance and strength. Take a look at Bill Pearl, five-time winner of the Mr. Universe pageant. Even our distant cousins, the apes in the wild, are vegans as well. After reading these factors, if you are still on the fence on how safe and healthy being a vegan can be for your health-or if you need to be convinced of its benefits-do not worry, becoming a vegan (a well balanced one that is) is definitely the biggest step you’ll be taking towards improving your health.
