Ignorance is bliss until our ignorance pays the price. Saving ourselves isn’t a crime, and changing our beliefs is simply waking up from the false education of the “sales” system. We worry about taking action on our diets initially, as it requires change and learning. Rather than focusing on what we have to lose, let’s focus on what we have to gain. I’m here to give a brief overview of why meat, dairy, and fish are no longer required. Once we have learned and felt the difference between what a plant-based diet offers, there’s no going back.
Once you understand the great effect veganism has on the body and the planet, there’s no going back. For those that require scientific-backed evidence, there are some documentaries at the end of this article that expose the meat, fish, and dairy industries and the deterrent effects of consumption.
Waking up to our diets means understanding that we don’t need meat to survive. Human bodies are naturally adapted to a plant-based diet. Animals eat the plants to gain nutrients, then humans eat the meat to absorb the second-hand nutrients the animals have digested. So, why do we eat animals for nutrients when we can get the nutrients from their source? The biggest lie that the meat industry spreads, which I even fell for, was that vitamin b12 can only be eaten by consuming animals and dairy. For those that don’t know, vitamin b12 is essentially bacteria from soil. Animals eat grass and soil, and the bacteria ingested is vitamin B12. However, animals themselves don’t consume vitamin B12 in the meat industry unless they are bred organically. How many of us buy organic dairy and meat? Animals are injected with vitamin B12 due to pesticides, chlorinated water, and health standards intervening. If plants and fruit were grown naturally without pesticides and tainted water, we could get vitamin B12 from the dirt on the food.
Industries have become obsessed with cleanliness which isn’t natural. A lot of animals are injected with hormones, antibiotics, and unnatural chemicals just to meet food standards. So, we are filling our bodies with more than just meat. We are filling our bodies with second-hand nutrients, harmful chemicals, medications, and unnatural hormones. If humans were designed to eat fish, we would have been born in the ocean with gills and fins to help us hunt.
Humans are not the superior species. This idea that we are has created an imbalance on the planet. Wildlife is starving because of human greed and desires. Furthermore, scientists are pulling fish out of the water and finding a high level of class A drugs, plastics, radiation and hormones in their systems due to water pollution and human destruction. Anything that pollutes the water is absorbed by the fish we are consuming. The biggest causes of water pollution are plastics, microplastics, and synthetics.
For those that understand energy and vibrations, foods vibrate at different levels. Meat vibrates at low levels compared to fruit and vegetables, which vibrate at higher levels. Everything we eat is an energy and cellular exchange, so we are what we eat. If we replace our high-vibrational energy and cells in the long term, with lower vibrational energy and cells, it’s going to suppress, depress and make us ill. When our awareness and vibrations increase, our bodies will generally start moving towards the foods that match our vibrations. As our awareness and compassion for our life grows, we may naturally gravitate toward fruits and vegetables.

I’ve spoken about what we are actually consuming. This is only the basics of the problem. It’s bigger than you and me. The damage caused by farming each year has a giant impact on climate change (human consumption) and other species. The main reason why the information is not in the public domain is that the governments and industries are too afraid to lose money, but most importantly, they are afraid to admit they were wrong. Years ago, the tobacco industry bragged about how beneficial tobacco products were until the truth came out. This is what’s happening in today’s world with meat and dairy. The truth is being revealed. The balance of our own bodies and the planet lies in our actions. When we consume more than what’s required or consume something that isn’t required, it creates an imbalance elsewhere. In this case, the imbalance is all around us in the world, and for some of us, the imbalance is in our bodies.
We need to ask ourselves the question. Suppose we had to go out and hunt for our own food. Could we? Or is it the convenience of someone slaughtering on our behalf that allows us to consume meat? Where’s the fairness in that? There is a wide community of vegans that can help newcomers adjust. The greatest myth about veganism is that everything tastes bland. We are opening our palettes to a whole range of new and incredible flavours and tastes. Our shopping bills and chances of illness decrease massively. We need to educate ourselves on the new knowledge that has arisen. If we had all the information, then we could make a clear judgement on what is best for us. Don’t wait for the governments and news to educate you. They won’t risk the hole in their pockets. Get ahead of the game and embrace change, because one day the effects will be like the effects of smoking. They were once hailed as being good for us until people woke up.
