This One Question Will Determine Whether or Not You Should Go Vegan

As people become increasingly aware of the widespread animal cruelty and environmental destruction caused by the meat industry, they’re eating less meat or ditching it altogether in favor of delicious vegan foods. In fact, over the past 10 years, American meat consumption has declined by 10 percent! And for every person who’s made the commitment to eating vegan, there are exponentially more who are considering it.

Here’s the one thing you should ask yourself to determine whether or not you should go vegan:

Do you think it’s wrong to hurt animals?

If you’re like the vast majority of people, the answer is yes.

For many of us, our dogs and cats are family members, and we make it a priority to ensure their happiness. And in the ways that matter most, farmed animals and our cats and dogs are the same. They all have unique personalities, can experience joy, and feel pain. However, since most people grew up eating meat, their most common reaction is to try to align their existing behavior with the belief that eating meat is normal or natural. Oftentimes, this means looking for more “ethical” or so-called humane meats.

But if we truly believe that it’s wrong to hurt animals, then we must also accept that there is absolutely no humane way to kill animals who do not want to die. So rather than trying to find the right way to do the wrong thing, commit to adopting a vegan diet. Whether you do it overnight or gradually,
it may be the best decision you ever make.
