My reasons for going vegan are for my health and for ethics. I spent three and a half months in the hospital due to an unknown infection,which also required several surgeries. During my lengthy stay,I began to think of how close I was to dying,and realized that lack of proper nutrition was on the list of things i was being treated for. From that moment on,I promised myself that I would take care of my body,which should've been treated a lot better.
Ethically,I saw gruesome videos and pics of animals being slaughtered and used for "entertainment". I have a conscience,and I could never support anything or anyone that does support such cruelty. All animals are creatures of God and deserve to be treated with love, care and respect.
