Here’s Why Veganism Is Not Just a Fad Diet

More people than ever are ditching animal products and switching to a compassionate vegan diet. In fact, the USDA reports that 400 million fewer animals were slaughtered in 2014 than in 2007. With delicious plant-based products becoming more readily available, there has never been a better time to switch!

But let’s be clear about something: Veganism isn’t just some fad diet.

Veganism is a lot of things, but first and foremost it’s a lifestyle that seeks to reduce animal suffering. Animals on factory farms are bred into a world of unimaginable cruelties: extreme confinement, filthy conditions, and brutal mutilations. And in the end, they’re all violently slaughtered.

Don’t believe us? Just watch this MFA undercover video from an Oklahoma pork supplier that shows sick or injured animals left to suffer without proper veterinary care, and workers violently mutilating piglets and beating pigs.

If factory farmers treated just one dog or cat the way they treat cows, pigs, chickens, and fish, they could be thrown behind bars.

Simply put, veganism is a lifestyle that promotes compassion for animals. By going vegan, you are taking a strong stand against animal abuse.

So while advertisers, the media, and some celebrities love to market veganism as a quick way to slim down, it’s important not to lose sight of what this movement actually represents.

If you love animals and see them as the unique, sensitive, and intelligent beings they are, it’s time to consider joining this movement by adopting a compassionate plant-based diet.
