I am an advocate for expansion into space. A meat based diet is extremely resource intensive and inefficient. It is simply not intelligent to try and recreate the biospheres for meat production necessary simply to satiate a craving for meat which isn't necessary for our diet.
I am vegan for moral reasons as well as health and the future of Earth
I hate the idea of eating animals and the cruel ways that animals are killed to meet people's needs.
For me; the basic notion that I can live a happy and fulfilled life without involving myself in the exploitation of animals. In the society I find myself living it is unnecessary. I don't judge others; its simply my choice and opinion.
I see eating animal products as a personal choice, not a necessity. My choice not to eat animal products saves energy and water, land, food, and prevents exploitation and cruelty. My choice to eat a plant-based diet is better for my health, easier on my digestion, and softer on my pocketbook. And the clean-up in the kitchen after plant based cooking versus cooking flesh? Now, that saves time and no more need to buy de-greasing dish soap. Such a win-win choice for me.
