Beautiful! Thank you for this presentation! Also, let's not forget that in going vegan we will address the root cause of our peacefulness problems on earth. It would be impossible to truly realize peace if our fundamental sustenance comes from stabbing friendly creatures in their throats. Impossible. Peace begins on our plate and we get to vote for it 3 times each day and snacks. Be kind to every kind. Go vegan :)

World's Largest Organization of Nutritional Professionals Says Vegan Diets are Suitable for All Ages

So the only reason to eat meat in the western world would be taste. So the question is
“are your taste buds more important then the live of a sentient animal”

The ways the food is produced is more decisive in terms of lives saved than the spesific diet we choose. In other words if the fight is against specism, a better way than veganism is eating food produced in a non industrial way. Eating vegan food produced far away from your home, with farms inputs and that separate the animals from the crops rapidly kills the subterranean fauna, which is primordial for the life of ALL species on earth. So being vegan without changing the production method is factually inefficient.

People don't realize that you lose the taste for meat when you go vegan. Somehow our taste buds change and all plant foods taste better than ever.

Yes great, and nobody is gonna talk about happiness level drops and feeling like your health is so bad that you can die soon if you go on? Because that was me after 2 years of being vegan. Thanks, but no thanks.

"The food system" is broken. The way to fix it to return to substance farming. Mass production of ANY type of food destroys the environment.
You want to save the planet? Grow your own food!:)

It feels good to be vegan. All animals deserve respect, the right to life and freedom. Make the connection, go vegan. :)

Ha. Yes, the Governments could set the new plant based dietary guidelines, but they are owned by the meat and dairy industry. We have been lied to our whole lives about the 'health benefits' of meat and dairy. We can't wait for Governments anymore, the people need to demand the changes and stop taking this BS.

What a lovely video. I love how it highlights the environmental issue, because not everyone can afford electric car or solar power for their electricity, but everyone can choose to have more plant-based diet food every single day, because we do need to eat everyday. Environmental issue is the biggest reason I went vegan, but I'm amazed at how healthy I am since I adopted the dietary choice. I have better relationship with animal too. I can see every animal I meet in the eyes and smile, knowing that I never hurt any of them just because I was supposedly hungry. It's nice to know you add a little happiness to others.

For others who wants to go vegan but the task seems extremely daunting, try Meat Free Monday first! I did it myself for about a month or two, then suddenly the switch is easier.

I've been vegan for 4 months, and vegetarian for 5 years before that and now I can see there was no benefits to being vegetarian really. Everything I ate contained cheese, but now when I see cheese it makes me want to throw up, can't believe I actually used to eat it and I don't get how others still do

Vegan people would be able to make ends meet at lower real cost, so it would be possible to raise taxes and increase profit margins.
Pls don't tell me that's not the real motivation.
