By now, you should be totally blown away with the three powerful reasons I have already given you to go to a plant-based (A.K.A. 95% Vegan) diet. That said, I have thus far appealed to your brain; your intellect. Now allow me to appeal to your heart with reason #4:
Help Farmers Get Away From The Cruelty of Factory Farming
The other 5% should be organic, free-range, and grass-fed if it’s not plant-based
You likely never think (or want to think) about how livestock has to be raised and slaughtered in order to feed the masses. Imagine if you were an intelligent animal, like a pig. [Did you know that pigs share a large percent of DNA similarity with humans?] Imagine being kept in confinement your entire life only to be slaughtered in the cruelest means. Oh, but before you are slaughtered, you had to watch many others go before you on the assembly line. It’s like a scene from The Walking Dead at Terminus.
Now imagine you are a fairly intelligent animal, but now you get to roam and graze. You have a relatively uneventful but happy life. You aren’t fed feed with hormones or pesticides. You have just one bad day, just like all of us will have eventually. You die.
It’s a lot more palatable (pun intended) to think of eating the animal in the second scenario, isn’t it?
When I first wrote The 95% Vegan Diet books, I caught a lot of flack from the fringe vegans. They accused me of condoning 5% murder of animals by allowing 5% of the diet to come from animal products. Let me be clear here: if you choose to go 100% plant-based, fantastic. There is nothing in The 95% Vegan Diet books that prohibits you from doing just that. Remember that I wrote these books with the experience as a clinical dietitian behind me. No one can be perfect 100% of the time. There is no 100% vegan culture of people on the planet. It appears from the science that being 95% vegan is therapeutic enough. AND, I will emphatically state that if everyone went 95% vegan, factory farming would be on its last leg. That would be a VAST improvement on the animal cruelty front, would it not?
My gift to you is a 100% satisfaction guarantee. If you buy any one of The 95% Vegan Diet books and give it a try, if you are not 100% satisfied, I will return to you 100% of your money. Why am I doing this? Because I believe in the power that going 95% vegan will have in your life. Because I care about your health, and want you to understand there is no risk in trying to do a better job for your health by trying these incredible resources to ensure you are going plant-based in the most medically credible way.
