I'm all about being vegan and I feel 100x better then I did when I quit smoking. I don't see the difficulty in it all seeing as I was a massive meat eater to only having vegetables, fruits, nuts, grains etc. It's really changed my life for the better and I have no regrets or ill feelings towards meat eaters or lacto/ova-vegetarians. I'm not for animal testing at all (duh) and only buy vegan clothes, shoes and cometics and I try to avoid sweat shop labour. So I agree, give it a go and see how well you fare.

I'd rather we got some use out of the animal, than have PETA scoop it up and euthanise it because it can't support all the animals it "saves"

And yet they raise so much money. Odd.

u guys should probably never visit market places in china. the stuff you see there will shock most animal lovers to death.

dogs keep in small cages ready to be slaughter for meat is an example, not a pleasant sight.

Agreed. Humane Society > PETA.

Facts:

- PETA supports breed specific legislation as well as the wholesale killing of all bull breeds. (Pitbulls are more docile than most lap dogs and collies--that's right; lassie.)

- PETA wants to stop the ownership of all pet animals.

- They believe ALL forms of human/animal coexistence should be banned.

- PETA has killed over 10,000 dogs and cats at its Norfolk, Virginia headquarters. (they also have disruptive protests at animal shelters for doing the same thing--the difference is that animal shelters will try to get healthy strays adopted before resorting to that)

- PETA killed over 85% of the animals it took in during 2003, in which they said they would be adopting out.

- PETA has spent tens of thousands of dollars defending arsonists and other violent extremists.

- 2 PETA employees were arrested in Virginia, July 05 on animal cruelty charges b/c they were caught dumping dead animals in a grocery store garbage container. They found 18 dead dogs in the container and 13 animals’ carcasses in a van that was registered to PETA. There was also a “death kit” found in the van, which was filled with syringes and two drugs that only licensed vets can have.

-PETA opposes animal testing for all purposes, including life-saving medical research, and yet:

PETA Senior Vice President MaryBeth Sweetland on her use of insulin, which was tested on animals:

"I'm an insulin-dependent diabetic. Twice a day I take synthetically manufactured insulin that still contains some animal products -- and I have no qualms about it ... I'm not going to take the chance of killing myself by not taking insulin. I don't see myself as a hypocrite. I need my life to fight for the rights of animals."

Wow. The thread post is sooo biased that I'm getting a tumor.
Vegan alternative meals aren't great if you go out and search for them. I've tried so many kinds and they taste nothing like the real deal. Only anti-meat people or people with low-class taste say that.

Are there skeletons in our closet? Before major civilization, there were skeletons on people, with people, as weapons, and even were the walls/homes to people. Should we refrain from going overboard? Yes, I believe so. But I also think groups like PETA want to completely stop any animal killing just because of their own moral opinions. Not to mention many of them actually hate or verbally attack people that don't agree. So, you read an article, have friends who are vegan, or had a bad experience with an animal being killed. Isn't this merely another opinion formed out of personal taste, emotions, thus opinions? Life and death within nature is something we can't figure out. If we want to use popular social morals and behavior into it, I guess we should regulate and control how far we go with animal use. But I don't agree with just stopping it.

Hi buddies!

I don't usually interact with people on such topics, but this is something we all should think over. I'm not forcing you people to do anything, but the cruelity against animals in todays world is not acceptable.

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), with more than 1.6 million members and supporters, is the largest animal rights organization in the world.

PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: on factory farms, in laboratories, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of beavers, birds and other "pests," and the abuse of backyard dogs.

Many household-product and cosmetics companies still pump their products into animals’ stomachs, rub them onto their shaved, abraded skin, squirt them into their eyes, or force animals to inhale them. However, hundreds of companies have signed PETA’s statement of assurance that they will not use animals for product testing.

There’s no mystery involved in creating deliciously satisfying vegan meals. Tasty alternatives to the animal ingredients that you may be cooking with are easier than ever to find—many are as close as your corner supermarket. If you’re just getting started, you may want to try simply “vegging up” your favorite recipes.

The cats, dogs, bunnies, birds, and other furry and feathered friends who share our homes and lives give us so much and ask for so little in return. Yet many companion animals have never known a warm place to lay their heads, a nutritious meal, or even a kind human touch. That’s why PETA is dedicated to making a difference for needy animals in our own community and around the world

For animals in circuses, there is no such thing as “positive reinforcement”—only varying degrees of punishment and deprivation. Animals do not voluntarily ride bicycles, stand on their heads, or jump through rings of fire. They don’t perform these and other difficult tricks because they want to; they perform because they’re afraid not to.

Are there skeletons in your closet? There is no difference between fur, leather, and wool when it comes to cruelty to animals. Every fur-trimmed jacket, leather belt, and wool sweater represents the intense suffering and gruesome deaths of millions of animals each year. Find out more at the following Web sites:
FurIsDead.com
SaveTheSheep.com
CowsAreCool.com

Please people try to make a difference, if you don't wanna go vegan I can understand, but still try! Its all worthwile!
