Eating Animals Turned Me Vegan

Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer turned me vegan.

Eating Animals was life altering for me, to learn how the meat that I grew up on and loved made it to my plate was eye-opening. I stopped eating meat the day I bought the book, and by the end of it, I stopped eating dairy and all animal by-products, stopped wearing or buying leather, and now use beauty products that are not tested on animals.

I learned that even if the animal isn't being killed and just farmed for their milk, the treatment of them is just as horrific. The standards that the government and general public hold for the lives of these animals are very low.

I can only hope that everyone who buys meat from the grocery store would care enough to know where it comes from and educate themselves with this book or any book that explains this reality. Possibly then they will make the connection with the farm animals that they grew up loving, or imagine their beloved cat or dog receiving equal treatment and then decide to make a difference.

I've been vegan for 10 months now thanks to this book and my passion and love for animals and my quest to make a difference. I will continue to fight for them and their rights.....someone has to.

Congratulations Anna! Like me, you were affected by something that educated you on the treatment of animals by the "food" industries. I went vegan about 15 years ago, after seeing a video lent to me by a college schoolmate: The Animals Film
