So, whether you eat meat or not, please take a deep breath and chill out for a second. To the vegans reading this, I want to be upfront that I utterly support eating vegan. It is one of my first recommendations to anyone who asks me how to live a more earth-friendly life.
To the meat eaters reading this, please read this fully before you quickly use this blog as an excuse to blindly eat food that is detrimental to the earth, to other species, and to you.
This is my argument against veganism by someone who strongly supports veganism. We live on a planet that is home to seven billion people, and amongst that massive population there are many, many different cultures.
Some are vegetarian by nature, some plant-based by nature, others eat a lot of meat and animal products, and of course there is a wide range in between. I write this argument, in part because some people believe that veganism is the one and only way, no exceptions.
