    what is the POINT ( objective ) in becoming a VEGAN ?

    this is how it works

    Human Beings have SEXUAL INTERCOURSE

    a certain percentage of the time that results in a PREGNANCY and a birth .

    . PARENTS then raise their offspring to embrace the CULTURE of VEGETARIANISM or the CULTURE of OMNIVORES

    while CARNIVORE does not imply any choice

    the majority of ANIMALS do not DECIDE to be carnivore or herbivore....

    the same way humans are OMNIVORES without having done any choice

    ACCORDING to various VEGAN

    ( note there are differences between Vegetarianism and VEGAN BY DEFINITION MEANS no PART OF ANIMALS AS IN leather FURS GELATIN wool PIANO KEYS EVEN honey )

    web sites such as HAPPY COW they claim

    it is part of a a "BELIEF SYSTEM " it is "unethical to eat animals " AS WELL AS USE ANY OF THE ANIMAL PRODUCTS EXAMPLE WOOL LEATHER THAT MIGHT INCLUDE NATURAL MEDICAL sutures ..( animal intestine ) ..

    .... Well if ancient man had not used the SINEW and animal hides bones for needles and gut for wound repair and consumed meats to SURVIVE much of the human population might not be here today

    . perhaps in a human Vegans thinking

    that LION an ANIMAL is UNETHICAL to eat that other animal a Antelope

    which has taken place for hundreds of centuries the earliest writings mentioning VEGANISM is by the GREEK mathematician Pythagoras in 500 BCE the first VEGAN society was formed in England in 1847 and 3 years later REV. Sylvester GRAHAM the inventor of the GRAHAM CRACKER started the American vegan society

    VEGANISM is a extreme form of VEGETARIANISM

    the term VEGAN - VEGANISM is first coined in 1944

    flesh avoidance is traced back to ancient INDIAN and Mediterranean societies

    CLUE Apes , Gorilla and Orangutans are herbivores

    while CHIMPS are OMNIVORES same as humans

    Really?

    Basically, “the point” of becoming vegan is because people want to. If you can't see “the point” in doing something you want to do then I can't explain it.

    There are many reasons people become vegan. In many cases it's a combination of reasons:

    1/ People simply don't like the taste, texture, smell etc. of animal products.

    2/ They don't like the idea of consuming something that is produced by an animal or something made from a dead animals.

    3/ They believe it is wrong to “use” animals for food production. It involves some cruelty and is unnecessary. They simply do not want to be a part of this. To me, this is a perfectly valid reason. It is NOT though the only reason or even the main one.

    4/ They have watched too many Disney films and think that animals are “too cute” to eat. These people generally have never a tually seen a real live farm animal.

    5/ They believe that “being vegan” is more healthy. This is a silly idea but considering how gullible people are and how much misleading (or just plain wrong) information is around it's no wonder some people think this.

    6/ As above but concerning pollution and the idea of “saving the planet”.

    7/ For religious reasons.

    8/ They come from a background where veganism is “the norm”- probably they were brought up that way.

    9/ Peer pressure or because they think it is “cool”. This seems to be less common than it was a few years ago.

    10/ They have a mistaken idea of what “being vegan” involves. Although they identify themselves as “vegan” (and probably think they are) they still consume some animal products.

    The only reason to be vegan is because you think it's wrong to kill and eat other animals. Period.

    Any claims others make are simply vegan manure. Vegans don't live longer, have prettier skin, aren't smarter, may not lose weight, save a single animal life or the planet, bla, bla, bla, simply by refusing to eat/use animal products.

      I did not say it is a healthier lifestyle for everyone, but individually it may be. I actually answered the question asked. If you can think of other reasons apart for seeking better health or reducing animal cruelty, i'd love to hear them.
