More About Me

Reasons why I prefer to eat vegetarian or vegan:

I have grown up as a meat eater and huge dairy lover in Cyprus. I first started researching animal testing for cosmetics when I was quite young, as I heard some horrific stories about it. I wasn't questioning eating animals as it was always set in my head that humans need meat to survive. But in my research I came across some horrible truths about the meat industry. I became almost vegetarian - I was only eating meat in Austria at my grandparent's small family farm where the animals had a good life and were treated with respect. But slowly I realized that I didn't have to. There is no reason why I could not live a long and healthy life without meat, so I gave it up. More research showed me the horrors and lies behind the dairy and egg industry so eventually I became vegan. I don't believe eating meat is wrong, but I do believe that the way we get it is completely twisted. It is just not right for me. I think everyone should be able to make their own choices, as long as they are informed and try to be true to themselves and don't ignore the facts and their responsibility towards our planet.
