    Annoying as the stereotypical vegan is, less meat consumption is the consumer-citizen's quickest way to reduce environmental impact. And it's healthy.

    https://www.economist.com/blogs/econ...st-explains-12

    A widespread switch to vegetarianism could curb emissions by nearly two thirds and veganism by 70%. More careful diets would also offer more direct health benefits. Gobbling too much red meat, particularly the processed sort, can increase the risk of heart disease and certain cancers. The study found that more than 5m deaths could be averted over the next three decades or so if meat were consumed modestly around the world. Over 7m could be saved if veggie-eating caught on more widely; 8m would benefit from popular veganism.
    I'm trying to cut down, particularly on beef. But put me in a Brazilian churrascaria restaurant and it's game over. Lord make me good, but not yet.

    The health benefits are of secondary importance to the massive impact Veganism will have environmentally.

    Industrial animal breeding and processing is a hidden horror that many of us are complete denial of.

    Yeah, the world is literally falling apart because of farming.


    If you want to make "veganism" more popular, you really need to work harder at not being complete fascist loons.

    If you want to eat crap, fine. Just STFU and get on with it

    You can't force me or anyone else.


    But, be warned, you will still face the full force of the law for child abuse if you push that sht on vulnerable and dependent children:


    An Italian baby raised on a vegan diet is hospitalized for severe malnutrition

    French vegans face trial after death of baby fed only on breast milk

    Parents convicted over baby killed by 'alternative' diet

    Vegan Nursing Mom's Baby Dies From Malnutrition

    Vegan toddler admitted to ICU for malnutrition, parents could face neglect charges

    Parents lose custody of malnourished toddler fed vegan diet
    These are isolated cases of a few nutjobs that you can't collate with veganism.
