    Why Vegans Should Eat Eggs

    And we are back to this debate. I know this is a touchy subject, but I really wanted to address it. Two days ago I listened to a podcast about veganism. It was all about how vegans should stick to the diet, and if once in a while they ate oysters or tuna they had it all wrong and had to ethical commitment.

    Netflix Series Travelers Predicts That Veganism is the Future

    Is veganism the future of our planet? Netflix sci-fi series Travelers says yes. The sci-fi show, which originally aired on Canadian network Showcase, takes place “many centuries into the future, [when] the Earth’s population has dwindled to almost nothing — but the survivors have discovered the key to time travel. Desperate to save humanity, a group enters the 21st century on a mission to avert disaster.” Although there are no animals left on earth at this time, fans of the show say that the future is almost certainly an entirely vegan one.

    Veganism, Coronavirus and global wellbeing.

    With Coronavirus affecting every person on the planet, discussing something seemingly trivial like veganism could be seen as insensitive. However, it may take a global disaster for people to finally realise the link between the exploitation of animals and human suffering.

It’s good news for vegans, as researchers have found that even those who occasionally dabble with a plant-based diet will see the benefits of it.

    Racism Isn’t Vegan

    As if he weren’t unlikeable enough already, Adolf Hitler was a preachy vegetarian. He subjected his guests to rambling lectures on the health benefits of a meatless lifestyle, and he berated his wife for using lipstick containing animal products. He forced his companions to hear his graphic descriptions of the violence in slaughterhouses, and then triumphantly accused them of moral cowardice for being unable to listen. Hitler, a man without an ounce of virtue, took great pleasure in virtue-signaling.

    This woman wrote a book about the history of pork - and it made her become a vegan

    “Every vegan seems to have their own lightbulb moment when something clicked and they stopped eating animal products,” says Cambridge University archaeologist Dr Pía Spry-Marqués, who committed to a plant-only diet two years ago as she researched the history of pork. “My son was born three years ago and I was nursing him. People looked at me funny for breastfeeding my child, and yet it was fine to drink lattes with cow’s milk, or eat chocolate spread,” she recalls to The Independent.

    Why everyone should go vegan immediately

    It was announced this week that all slaughterhouses in England will have to install CCTV cameras, in a Government move to try to improve animal welfare on UK farms. As a lover of animals, you’d think I would be thrilled at this news. Instead I can’t help but continue to wonder why on earth we are killing animals in the first place. It shouldn’t be a question of whether or not it’s caught on camera.

    You really can eat vegan as a college student. Here’s how.

    Like many vegans, I am often asked what I eat. The answer: a lot. Vegans only eat foods that come from plants. I don’t eat any animal or animal-derived products: no meat, dairy or eggs. Despite being a college student on a budget, and having limited dorm kitchen supplies, I rarely have trouble figuring out what to eat. You do not have to buy special food to stay healthy as a vegan. Here are some tips I use to maintain my diet. You can find this complete story on our College Town site.

    Why I became a vegan – and why you should, too

    In early October, I surprised my family, friends and colleagues by announcing that I had become a vegan. Up until then, I wasn’t even vegetarian. I loved sausages, I ate chicken several times a week and I couldn’t imagine living without cheese. I have, of course, known for a long time that animal farming is a nasty business. Like everyone, I have seen those distressing pictures of the conditions endured by poultry, cattle and pigs in factory farms.

    'Vegans call me murderer and rapist'

    Veganism has been described as the fastest growing lifestyle movement. For some concern about animal welfare leads them to actively campaign against all forms of the meat industry. But are some of those activists taking it too far? "When you're being called murderers and rapists, that is overstepping the mark, for fairly obvious reasons," says Alison Waugh, a trainee farmer in Northumberland. She has received death threats due to her work and told the Victoria Derbyshire programme other farmers are feeling threatened.
